Tattoo!! What kind of moisturizing cream to use?
    #10614115 - 07/03/09 07:47 AM (7 years, 1 month ago)

So last weekend my gf got a tattoo started, on her back. It's going to be a Dali painting that has been reworked into something special for my gf. Looks great so far!!!

Question is...what type of moisturizing cream is ok to use on tattoos? My gf said it's either oil-based or water-based that is OK to use, the other one isn't - but she can't remember which one!

We have some Jergen's water-based moisturizer...is that ok to use?

Chapstick classic black works great.

A & D first aid ointment works wonders. It is unscented and undyed, so it's not going to cause any irritation. The only problem is that it is kind of thick, so you want to use as little as possible, and also make sure only to apply a couple times per day. Usually once when I get up and then again before I go to bed is enough, with a little extra if my tattoo gets itchy during the day. I just got my first tattoo finished on Wednesday, and A & D already has it looking healthy and almost healed.

If you do decide to go with a lotion, make sure it is lanolin and fragrance free. If your girlfriend is allergic to lanolin she can get a rash which, when it goes away, will also take the dye from her tattoo with it in splotchy patches.

The story goes, or the way that I was told
There was a king that always felt too high and then he fell too low
And so he called all the wise men to the hall
And begged them for a gift to end the rises and the falls
But here’s the thing, they came back with a ring
It was simple and was plainly unbefitting of a king
Engraved in black, it had no front or back
But there were words around the band that said
Just know: This Too Shall Pass

This is truth.

I only use a thin layer of A&D oinment for a few days keeping them nice and clean.

Btw, very sweet tattoo. please post the finished product when done
My back is my canvass as well :smile: (pics in gallery)

If not mentioned yet A&D ointment works good. anything with bacitracin(sp) in it.

She is going to have color added to it. Not sure exactly what colors yet though.

People use all kinds of different things.  Any kind of unscented lotion, preparation H, tattoo goo, vitamin E cream.... chapstick is a new one, I've never heard that before.  I wonder how effective vaseline would be?

What did the tattoo artist recommend?

Very nice tat I like the lines and the simplicity!

Havent seen you in years bro it sucks! How are you doing health wise? Havent touched base with you in forever always see you pop in on MSN! I was going to say A&D Cream seems to be the best route.

The lotion should be dye and fragrance free, and avoid anything with lanolin or bees wax in it.
And yeah Jergens water based lotion works fine.. it's oil-based lotions you want to avoid.

A&D ointment or whatever is great for the first couple days, then should just use a nice lotion to keep it moist.
