Take care of your tattoo
Once you’ve spent time and money on your new tattoo, you’ll want it to heal well and look good for years to come. Poking your skin with a needle thousands of times and filling those holes with paint can be a slightly traumatic experience for your skin. That’s why you need to keep your new tattoo clean and moisturised so it can heal in peace.
Keeping the tattoo clean is step one. That’s why we’ve developed a mild Tattoo Wash without perfume or sulphates. It contains aloe vera and is very easy to use, even on sore tattoos.
Our Tattoo Balm is oil-based and therefore has a slightly thicker texture. Because it’s oil-based, it’s best suited for smaller tattoos or tattoos that you can’t reach to apply as often. It moisturises and soothes the skin while allowing your tattoo to breathe.
Our Tattoo Lotion is water-based and absorbs quickly into the skin. It has a light consistency which makes it ideal for slightly larger tattoos. Contains aloe vera and witch hazel to soothe the skin.
Which one is right for you?
Some people prefer to just use either balm or lotion, while others like to start with one and then move on to the other. As the Tattoo Lotion has a lighter consistency and is therefore easier to apply, we recommend it for larger tattoos. Similarly, we recommend the Tattoo Balm for smaller or hard-to-reach tattoos because it has a thicker consistency and takes a little more time to sink into the skin. Don’t forget to tag @mrbearfamily if you end up posting your tattoo on social media, we’d love to see it!
