Colloidal silver Won't hurt. I would def. Put it on. I know nothing about tattoos but was wondering why is it purple and blue?

Stick with something mild, like aquaphor.

Have you looked at the ingredients for aquaphor? This is a natural group just fyi

I have 10 tattoos and I've always used non- fragrant soap (cetaphil) and A&D ointment the first couple of days, wash with soap and pat dry, rub in the A&D really well, don't leave a shine so maybe blott with paper towel. Then after the 2 days I use non-fragrant cetaphil lotion till peeling is done. Works Great for me!

There is a silver gel avoid bag balm. It's petroleum based and other chemicals. A calendula salve would work awesome too.

I always put coconut oil on my tats. Avoid anything with petroleum- can clog the pores

The piece is very pretty but why are the watercolors cut off on (I'm presuming) your head?

Chel Oneill

I wondered if she was covering an old one or if it was bruising?

Its a new style of tattooing called water color, where the colors don't have black lines surrounding them. The purple and blue is def ink.. Just looks like the woman's head should have some too, to me. Strangely bare ...

cool, love to learn something new every day!

African shea butter or coconut oil!!

It is a watercolor tattoo. What do you mean if you dont have something nice to say dont say anything at all? Are you implying that you dont have anything nice to say michelle?

Why are the colors cut off on the womans/your head?

Chel Oneill 3 years

That's just how i wanted it, she asked if i wanted to add to it but i thought it was perfect.

Amanda Fuller 3 years

Ohh OK

Chel Oneill 3 years

i just felt like the colors were kind of hugging the two.

Amanda Fuller 3 years

They are! I'm an artist though, so my eye is drawn to the sharp line of color going through her neck.. Everything else is flowy, but that seems ubrupt and separates her head from the rest of the piece.. Idk. Not trying to be critical, just food for thought!

Lookup the saran Wrap healing method. It worked amazing for all of mine.

Thank you

But it needs air to heal... Wouldn't this just enclose it and encourage germs to breed?

Mine all look amazing after using this method.

Now i also read that i could use dr. Bronners. Ive been using the baby one.

Amanda Fuller

I'm an artist though.... Lol anyways I think it's perfect the way it is, I see how the color is hugging them and more color would take away from the embrace. That's the cool thing about tattoos, you with help, are the artist. It's rad we all see through different eyes, all of them artistic

I used coconut oil only on my last one and it worked great, way better than A&D ever did. (I'm actually told most artists hate a&d because it pulls ink up out of the skin. The ones I've used it on definitely didn't heal as bright )
I've used coconut oil and tea tree oil on my most recent one, and its healed up great!

I actually have wondered if CS would react with the aluminum I'm told is in tattoo ink?

Andrea Fontenot
A

what? That's toxic! I didn't know that was in tattoo ink!

Donna Mobley 3 years

I was told its in there.. I haven't been able to confirm it though, and haven't found any research on it yet.

Andrea Fontenot 3 years

And yes, I know (now) that it's bad, im wondering- if there is aluminum in ink- if a heavy metal detox after its all healed would help?

Use coconut oil

Bridget Maddox

Someone told me that coconut oil would fade the colors, but to use something shea butter based. There are always so many conflicting opinions. Beautiful tat!

Lisa Rudd

Thank you I'll probably alternate between coconut oil and Shea butter
