I recently got a tattoo and am wondering what the safest and most effective moisturizer is.. I asked my tattoo artist if I should use lotion and he said I didnt really need it but when I ask others who have previously gotten tattoos.. They said their artist recommended some kind of ointment.. I've had it for 3 days and it is now starting to peal a little and I would like to find some kind of ointment to use..

Thanks


Also, is lifting with a new tattoo a safe idea?

hydrochloric acid, if it starts to sting it means its working, leave it on for a couple of days

E45 is alcohol based and can pull ink out your better off with bahms rescue cream, or.. heameroid cream, which yes is odd but effective, and you should be ok lifting but not continueously so not doing weights etc.

Lye, the more alkaline the pH, the better for the healing process.

Would Eucerin or Neutrogena lotion work ok?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I have many tattoos and have never put anything on them and they are still as colorful as the day i got them. My tattoo artist said not to use anything as lotions will fade the color. Just let it naturally peal and don't pick at it.

^ this (edit: to benji), similar to the heamaroid. I'm not sure of the contents but common household moisturisers tend to be alcohol based/acidic, this can bleach the ink or pull it out!

Prep H is very good for it, heals skin properly. In all honesty, as long as you avoid it rubbing on anything or strong sunlight/UV light it should heal fine either way. Any non-alcohol based moisturiser or skin treatment creams should do you well. Judging what people are saying here, naturals like Cocoa Butter are yer best bet. PS - lets see the ink!

i used bepanthen which is a nappy rash cream that worked good for mine


I agree.
My dad/brother/friends all use it.
A friend of the family is a tattooist and recommends it aswell.

Would Eucerin Lotion work good? It is water based ?

There is a balm called Tattoo Goo, that I always use for 10 days after I get a new tat. Most shops in my area sell it. Aside from that any" NON SCENTED" skin lotion with vitamin E will do fine. After the 10 days you should be good to go without putting anything else on it.

Don't forget the Sunscreen.
