One of the things we love about the Tattoo Expo’s we attend is the opportunity to meet some TINKture users – the Hamilton show was no exception and it was a privilege to meet Cara (lead singer of the Napier based band Ninja Monkey). Cara was booked for a 7+ hour sitting with Pepa of Bohemian Tattoos, Tauranga based Tattoo artist. Cara was going to use TINKture for the first time!
Cara was an absolute trooper, sitting for the 7+ hours plus needed to complete her breath taking tattoo (in real like it looks like an oil painting).
Now Cara was used to using Bepanthen so TINKture was going to be a total new experience for her – we had a quick chat and recap on how she should use TINKture and off she went.
Cara was THRILLED with the results – so much so, she wrote to me to report her experience – she was very happy for us to share (the words below are Cara’s & unedited)
So, here are the facts. My tattoo took 7.5 somewhat painful hours to complete but thanks to TINKture only took 10 days to heal! For a piece that covers the majority of my upper right arm, I was expecting a good few weeks of tenderness, bruising, swelling and healing.
This is what I found using TINKture:
By day three the swelling and redness had practically disappeared.
Days four through seven were spent peeling – TINKture eased the itchiness that usually accompanies this stage!
Days eight through ten there were a few drier scalier patches that have since healed beautifully.
TINKture is a fantastic product. It is easy to use, didn’t pull at my skin when I applied it, isn’t sticky, soothes the skin and most importantly, healed my tattoo quickly. I also found that it was a multi-use product – having allergies to adhesives, I developed a nasty rash where the gladwrap had been taped to my skin after my tattoo was completed, but after a couple of applications of TINKture, it had cleared right up.
I won’t use anything else on any future tattoos and will definitely recommend TINK to all of my inked up friends and family.
Thank you Cara – it was awesome of you to share this with us – I’m sure it will help others to re-think the old aftercare they may use, that doesn’t have the natural healing properties & benefits TINKture does.
