  2. yeah when i first started tattooing id tell people not to put anything on their tattoo after the hot compress for a few days and then just use regular non scented lotion because it was the only full proof way of getting first-timers not to do something stupid with their aftercare. i had a handful of clients coming back with their tattoos healed in a week or less and i finally asked what they did and they ALL said the same thing you just did. needless to say ive had a change of heart and recommend only aquaphor.
