If it's ruining your clothes maybe you're putting a bit too much on? I'm sure I slathered it on when I got my first session on my sleeve and it did get everywhere, but washed off ok. I then realised I was using too much, though it can be hard to spread just a wee bit on if you've had quite a big area done and it's sore.

I've found that keeping the cling film on stops the mess on my clothes and stops me sticking to the sheets/pyjamas as well as being much more comfortable the first couple of days. I suppose this depends where the tattoo is and how big it is.

Oh dear, I feel like I'm completely waffling now. What do I know? hahaha

Default You have gotta try this!!!!!!!!

[SIZE="2"]
I swear down the best damn thing for a new tattoo is preperation H for hemmorhoids (think that's how you spell it) you can buy it over the counter from pretty much anywhere including supermarkets. It comes as a gel and leaves a very thin film over the tattoo so not only is it doing the job for the healing process but it is also protecting your new addition from any unwanted dirt, also it dries instantly so no more wrecked greasy clothes and because it is mostly water based I think you would be hard pressed to have an allergic reaction to this stuff!
My other half is a tattooist and he has always used the stuff for those reasons but the best one is that rather than your tattoo forming a "proper" scab and simply leaves it with a fine layer of dry skin over the top so no puckering or itchyness either and it does not draw any colour out, in fact I have found that your tattoo stays alot brighter than usual as the colour is not soaked up into big ol' nasty scabs.
Give it a go girls and let me know how you get on, trust me it works like magic!
Hope this helps lovelies xxxxxx

yeah i got told prep h is good for ink!!

i was always told however to never use anything vaseline based on a tattoo as it can pull out the colour or send it gooey (for want of a better word) i used to use savlon then got told off for that by my tattooist (which is weird cuz my mum n dad used that for 20 ish years without a problem) so damned confusing

I use an antibiotic that my artist prescribes-bacitracin, till it is nice and smooth, at least 2 weeks, then I keep it lotioned everyday with a thick cream. I am in Texas where it is always hot and my skin dries and the tat looks nasty so the cream keeps it looking nice. My peeling is never bad and it heals easily. My wrist bracelet healed in no time and was so simple to care for. Even my tiger which is my biggest piece healed great.
