Take care of your new tattoo
How should you take care of that beautiful new tattoo? And which ointment is best for you? Don’t worry, Mr Bear will explain everything.
When you’ve spent both time and money on your new tattoo you’ll also want it to heal properly and look good for many years to come. Penetrating the skin thousands of times and fill those holes with colour can obviously be a bit traumatic for the skin. That’s why it’s important to keep your new tattoo clean and moisturized.
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 works great if you have dry skin or if the humidity is low. But it also works great even when it’s humid. It moisturizes and soothes the skin while at the same time lets your tattoo breathe.
If you want a lighter ointment our Tattoo Lotion is the way to go. It’s water-based and will enter the skin quickly. It contains aloe vera and witch hazel which will soothe the skin and keep your tattoo looking great.
Which one is right for you?
Some prefer using only the balm or the lotion while others want to start with one of them and finish with the other. There are no wrong answers here, since it’s pretty much up to personal preference. Both ointments will take care of your tattoo. Don’t forget to tag @mrbearfamily if you end up posting your tattoo on social media, we’d love to see it!
