I am going to be getting a new tattoo soon, and I am in search of experiences with using natural products such as shea butter to keep the tattoo moist during the healing process. I have in the past used A & D ointment, but I would prefer something 100% natural, or as close to it as possible. TIA!

Well, it is taking forever to dig through different and conflicting websites. So far this website says Aloe Vera causes the tattoo to heal too quickly:

So, it has a lot of good natural healing properties.....apparently too good!

I am really leaning towards shea butter:

There is also a product out there called H2Ocean that I may consider trying:

I really have had the best results with coco butter. This last time I used some hemp something stick. It was in the hfs. It worked pretty nice. Very easy to apply, it was kind alike a big chapstick. And since this tattoo was on my lower back, it made it much easier. You want something that will let the tat breathe so it can heal. If I find what is left of that stick I will post the name. Good luck!!

Ok, we have a vote for Coco Butter, Dr. Bronner and Sun Dog's Magic Organic Balm, a hemp based balm, and H2Ocean. Thanks...keep them coming ladies! I was supposed to get it done yesterday, but my DH's friend had to cancel on me due to a home emergency. So, I sit here and wait...

Natural product for tattoo aftercare

As I know about tattoo aftercare I would like to suggest the coconut oil if you are looking for the natural product for tattoo aftercare. Many people prefer it and it works for them. But somehow it may be compromising as it does not work for all. If you want to use other products then I would like to suggest you Marlowe's aftercare lotion. Its the best lotion for any tattoo aftercare and it can be used by any tattoo fan. Its purely safe to use. 0:)0:)
