I've been making tattoo aftercare salves for myself since 2005, but recently decided to fine tune my favorite recipes for Wild Rose. Ink Balm is an ideal alternative to petroleum jellies and synthetic creams traditionally used for tattoo procedures and healing. An ultra moisturizing and absorbent base of organic Coconut Oil and Pacific Northwest Beeswax keeps skin hydrated without clogging pores. Organic essential oils of Oregon-grown Peppermint and Lavender soothe tender and itchy skin. Antioxidant-rich Rosemary Extract and non-GMO Vitamin E are added to improve stability and nourish healing tissues.
For fresh tattoos, wash gently with a mild antibacterial soap 2-5 times per day. Pat dry with a clean paper towel. Using clean hands, apply a very thin, even layer of Ink Balm to your tattoo. Ink Balm is designed to melt at body temperature. If Ink Balm is thicker or harder than desired, we suggest softening a small amount between clean palms before application.
Wild Rose's products are designed to be extremely versatile to work with any aftercare regimen. Always follow your artist's aftercare instructions.
Aftercare will vary depending on your skin type, size and location of tattoo. These instructions do not replace the advice of a medical professional.
