TINKture. Now even better!

TINKture.  Now even better!

TINKture Tattoo Aftercare was created by a qualified aromatologist, and as part of our continuing process of ongoing research and development,  a few months ago we came across another carrier oil with incredible properties, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial to name just a few – the scientific reports are so  fantastic we have been testing it in TINKture Tattoo Aftercare and now it’s even better!  

We realised that TINKture was ‘not’ broken but it would be remiss of us to not add this new ingredient – and our human testers have been thrilled.

The biggest change the test group (including myself) noticed was that overall, the healing time was speedier.

Two of our testers with known reactions to certain ink colors noticed the symptoms weren’t as bad – it took an extra 3 – 7 days to heal the colours that are irritants, but with less itching and pain.

In all cases,  bruising and swelling went away even quicker than with the original TINKture. And virtually no itch at all. (The new TINKture was used exactly as directed, by our human testers).

So, what’s changed?

The new ingredient (which is 100% natural & vegan) will change the look, smell & viscosity of TINKture, but just a little.

The men who tested it liked it better because it doesn’t smell so girly.

It also won’t look so ‘clear’ initially  – it’s darker, but lightens and clears as it gets warmer.

We at Le’Esscience Limited are absolutely THRILLED with the slight change – new TINKture will have a wee sticker on the lid saying ‘Now even better’.

Rest assured that what you have now is just fine and will do a brilliant job aiding the healing process of your new ink, however, next time you purchase TINKture, look out for the ‘Now Even Better’ sticker!

Also we have just gone through legal advice to have the recipe of TINKture made into a ‘Trade Secret’ – we have done this to protect our IP (because yes, it is that good & very unique). You will now see on print material that come with your TINKture purchase:

Below are photos of one the testers using ‘Now even better’ TINKture – Day 1 is the photo the tattoo artist took at the end of the sitting – we stopped at Day 6 because there really wasn’t a lot to see! Just fabulous healing! Hover over the photos to see the day details.

Please note: TINKture was used exactly as directed – applying a thin layer little and often – TINKture was used in total for 14 days on this tattoo – it didn’t need to be applied so frequently from day 8 (on this particular tattoo).

Cara’s AMAZING orchids by Pepa at Bohemian Tattoos

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.
