Best post tattoo care? in Tattoo After Care Posted December 31, 2013 I used organic, eucalyptus soap from Nature's Emporium to wash and calendula cream to moisturize. My tattoo healed beautifully. Calendula is a perennial flower known for it's anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and healing properties. I don't have a specific product to share because my cream came from a family friend's basement (a retired pharmacist now herbalist), but I'm sure it can be found in creams elsewhere.
