Tattoo Healing Balms
Taking good care of your new tattoo right after you get it will help it heal quickly and stay vibrant. By keeping your skin moisturised and clean, staying out of the sun, and avoiding picking or itching your new design, your tattoo will heal beautifully.
Always listen to your tattoo artist's advice as they will explain how best to care for your new artwork.
Our healing balms aren't a replacement for antibacterial creams that your artist has recommended, but our combination of natural ingredients keeps fresh tattoos moisturised, reducing scabbing and relieving itchiness and irritation and can help advance the natural healing process of both tattoo work and laser removal treatments.
We have selected our combinations of base and essential oils specifically for their healing properties.
Beeswax (Cera Alba)
Coconut Oil (Capric triglyceride)
Hempseed oil (cannabis sativa)
Shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii)
Vitamin E Triticum vulgare)
Blends of essential oils
Beeswax based products, contain comfrey, which is proven to be very effective for healing and for providing nourishment and moisture to the skin while it regenerates. Hempseed Oil is great for inflamed skin and Shea butter is long lasting, rich in naturally occurring healing compounds, and known for its skin protecting qualities.
Bergamot and Cedarwood essential oils have natural antiseptic properties, while Patchouli essential oil helps soothe inflammation.
We also have a Vegan friendly tattoo balm, where we have replaced the beeswax with Cocoa butter
Once your tattoo is fully dry, apply a little of our healing balm to the tattoo. Make sure to apply only a very thin layer and pat it in gently until it's absorbed by the skin.
Don't use petroleum-based products, such as Vaseline or Neosporin, as these are too heavy and may clog the pores.
Wash and moisturise your tattoo daily until the scabs are gone and as directed by your tattoo artist. Y
While moisturising is important, be careful not to smother the tattoo —a thin layer is all you need.
Avoid scratching or picking at your tattoo. As it heals, your tattoo will start to scab over, which is normal. Let the scabs dry out and fall off by themselves, and don't speed up the process by picking or scratching at the scabs. This can cause the scabs to fall off too soon, which can leave holes or light spots on the tattoo. Keep using the healing balm to combat itchiness if it is a problem.
