A wonderful review about TINKture

This email made my day…..  I really do appreciate clients taking the time to write to me, thank you Annika.

Hi Gillian!

Just wanted to let you know how much i love the tattoo oil. I love everything about it, the packaging it simple and cute, the oil smells lovely and most importantly it is looking after my latest tattoo like a dream 🙂

Up until now i have used Bepanthan ointment for all my tattoos mainly because that was what i was recommended when i first started getting tattooed, and i never questioned it. While i had no problems with it, it was thick and sticky, it got all over my clothes and i would have to peel them off gingerly when getting undressed. Tinkture is just what i wanted, its a great thin texture and it moisturisers and heals while letting my skin breath. On Tuesday i had a 5 hour sitting to start a large tattoo on my arm and once i got the oil i used it right away. because of such a long sitting i was really sore, swollen and bruised and the Tinkture oil really help to soothe and calm my poor arm. I’ve been using it 4-5 times a day thinly and the bit of scabbing i had has almost completely gone. I have one more long sitting in a few weeks so i intend to keep using it till then and then get my tattoo artist to put it on after the next session!

I was so pleased i convinced my flatmate to buy some while he was up in Auckland getting his sleeve finished and he is also very impressed (and so is his vegan girlfriend!). I will take the bottle in to my tattoo artist next time as well as he is travelling to some conventions soon and also works overseas most of the year. a bit of networking is deserved for such a great product 😉

So in all, thank you for filling a much needed gap in the market and i really hope your business venture gets even more successful because it’s awesome! i will be buying more in the future.


Annika gave me permission to publish her comments – again, thank you Annika.

TINKture Tattoo After Care has won an award!

Last night TINKture Tattoo After Care won the ‘Consumers Product’ category in the Bright Ideas Challenge (Wellington, New Zealand) through Grow Wellington.

Quoted from Bright Ideas Challenge:

“The Bright Ideas Challenge, an initiative of Grow Wellington, encourages idea generation and facilitates connections and support between entrepreneurs and Wellington’s innovation community.  Only in its second year, the Bright Ideas Challenge has attracted an outstanding 925 submissions from entrepreneurs around the Wellington Region. 

“The entrants in this year’s Bright Ideas Challenge are an impressive reflection of the aptitude and depth of Wellington’s entrepreneurial community,” said Nigel Kirkpatrick, Chief Executive of Grow Wellington.  “As a region, Wellington really is an entrepreneurial hub; the ideas that have been generated by the 2011 Challenge are a huge testament to that.”

TINKture was selected for the finals due to a ‘major problem’ the product solves, not just soothing but providing pain relief and being an overall specific wound healing product that aids and speeds the healing process of a new tattoo. To win the award is just fantastic, exciting and very humbling.

The award has made us really chuffed 😀 It certainly tells us we are doing something right!
