How To Use

The best way to use any aftercare is to wait around 18-20 hours after your tattoo, so all of the plasma, blood and excess surface goop has left the body, and you have given your tattoo a soapy gentle quick wash (no soaking your tattoo).

While you are waiting for all the goop to be gone make sure you patch test your Inky Tattoo Salve to ensure you do not have any sensitivities towards essential oils or any other ingredients we use (a good place to do this is on the side of your inner elbow).

A little bit of the Inky Tattoo Salve goes a long way. Scoop out a small amount with clean fingers, warm it between your fingertips to melt the salve and lightly spread across the tattoo.


All natural and organically sourced ingredients.

Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Candillia Wax, Kakadu Plum, Jojoba Oil, Seabuckthorn Oil, Rosehip Oil , Neroli and Geranium.

What if I have a reaction to the Inky Tattoo Salve?

Patch testing first is essential.

If a reaction occurs after you do a patch test on the side of your inner elbow, please do not use on your tattoo.

A skin care reaction normally looks red, maybe little pimples around the tattoo, or can just make your tattoo feel uncomfortable. And this is the opposite of what you want for your tattoo.

Why do I need to look after my new tattoo?

You might think its super simple to take care of your new tattoo, but there are some important things you need to know to avoid infection.

There is way more involved than just slapping on some cream and going about your business so be sure to follow the directions which you can find under 'How To Use'.

Inky Tattoo Salve was created to nourish and protect your tattoo but if you have just touched your dog and then put your hands in your Inky tin then that is going to be a recipe for disaster.

Remember, consider where you are getting tattooed on your body, how is your body feeling, and are you in a position to keep it clean and away from bacteria.

Be sure to follow the advice and directions your tattooist gives you too.

Happy Healing!

What do I do after a tattoo?

After you get home and depending on whether you are using a second skin like product, take off the cling wrap and give your new tattoo a nice soapy wash, removing all the excess plasma, blood and surface ink from your tattoo.

Always remember to keep your tattoo clean, which means changing into clean clothing that is touching the tattoo often, clean bedding, no animals and no long soaks in the tub.

Absolutely no strenuous movement that makes you sweat or puts you in a position to get hit on your new tattoo. Swimming in the beach or with chlorine will dehydrate your new tattoo, causing ink loss. Some jobs require you to be around dust and dirt, so using extra coverage while at work may be a good idea.
