Once your tattoo is healed… how to care it further? I mean.. for the rest or your life, daily.
Some people say Nivea, baby oil,Eucerin…. but there are too many opinions about it.

Does anybody know for certain what lotion must be used in the day by day care?
THANX.

Once it’s healed i don’t put anything on it apart from sun block in the summer time. Not sure about anybody else i think buttwheat has mentioned about putting lotion on it daily.


Are you going to bark all day little doggy or are you going to bite?

It’s all personal preference, just use a good unscented lotion such as Lubriderm, Curel, etc. I also use 100% pure shea butter which works well for me.

well no, but usually the colder the climate the less relative humidity there is in the air, therefore drying out your skin.

^ This.

Lotion isn’t going to do anything to preserve your tattoo; it will simply help keep your skin moisturized so your tattoo looks its best. Many people recommend lotions containing Vitamin E, but the Vitamin E will never reach the dermis and thus does nothing to help preserve your tattoo. If you want a healthy dermis, eat healthy (e.g. foods rich in Vitamins E, C, & A).

Curel is my favorite lotion to use 2-3 days after getting my tats i use it daily. It really helps bring out the tattoo when you lotion your skin daily.

but keeping your skin healthy so your tattoo looks its best is a part of the process to preserving your tattoo. but i agree, eating healthy and having general good health is the best way to keep your tattoo at its best, along with sunscreen when you are going to be in the sun for long periods.

Hey Wardy what is this about sunblock? I thought you said you lived in sunblock err England! Come down to Oz and we will show you Sun 40 today (and that’s Celcius), forget the sun block, in doors with the Air Conditioner.

Haha your right England is shit weather 99% of the time. But we usually get a week’s worth of really hot sun in the summer time 🙂
