Hi everyone I have a quick question 

Is it to use a firming lotion on a healed tattoo. In particular I'm looking at palmer's coconut oil firming lotion  what should I avoid while using something to moisturize my tattooed skin, what about this one here 

 

Water (Aqua), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut), Polyimide-l, Sodium Polyacrylate, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Fucus Vesiculosus Extract, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Gardenia Tahitensis Flower Extract, Caffeine, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Rahnella/Soy Protein Ferment,Palmitoyl Tripeptide-l, Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12, Polysorbate-20, GlycerylAcrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, GlycerinButylene Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Potassimu Sorbate, Trisodium EDTA, Sodium Metabisulfite, Sodium Sulfite, Fragrance (Parfum), Coumarin.

 

thanks.

I probably wouldn't use that one because it has Fragrance in it. I use Lubriderm non-scented lotion and it's always been great.

We recommend aquaphor to our folks. There's subtle scent at application but not strong or offensive. *Note: make sure you apply aquaphor while your skin has time to be exposed to air and isn't immediately covered with clothing. It does great things to expediate your tattoo aftercare, but it can stain your cloths.

I second Lubiderm as that's what I've always used when I have access to it. I had a lot of my work done inside the system where there weren't many options however. One of the options was Coco Butter, and I never had any issues with it, just wanted to point that out!

    • This is my first tattoo, had it for 2.5 weeks. Been keeping up with aftercare thoroughly. From what I’ve read I’m going through the “milky phase” of my tattoo but in two parts(parts circled) it’s not as much of a milky, hazy white. Instead it’s pinkish red and I’m worried they are scars forming. Do they look like scars? Can they be touched up? Or do they even need to be touched up at all, and after they heal will the ink show through? I’m super paranoid about this since it’s my first one. Also my artist is actually out of the country right now and isn’t answering his phone which makes things tough.
