Tattoo Aftercare: Keep Your Body Art Looking Fresh

Choosing the right tattoo aftercare products is crucial to help your body art heal properly and stay looking healthy. Whether this is your first tattoo or you want an existing one looking as good as it was first inked, these products are for you.

Billy Jealousy Tattoo Wash

A special formulated tattoo wash that is gentle enough to pamper fresh ink and promote healing. The body wash helps retain colour and enhance tattoo vibrancy, whilst also reviving ageing ink. For best results, wash your tattoo two to three times a day using only your hands. Then pat dry or air dry for 10 to 15 minutes before applying aftercare.

Electric Ink Vibrancy Serum

This serum maintains pigment and promotes vibrancy whilst protecting and hydrating skin. Great for all types of tattoos including permanent makeup. To use, apply a few drops directly to your tattoo daily. For older tattoos it may take several weeks of application to generate optimal results.

Tattoo Goo Original Aftercare Salve

This salve is a must for those with healing ink (less than four weeks old) and those with healed tattoos. This compact tin is infused with lavender oil that soothes irritated skin (and smells great). Apply a small amount twice a day or four times if it gets rubbed by clothing or is exposed. When the tattoo begins to peel or scab, switch over to using Tattoo Goo Original Aftercare Lotion — hailed by tattoo artists as a superior healing aid.
