Then leave it alone.

Ive heard different things over the years and have used all sorts on my tats. I use dove soap, pat dry and then an intensive moisturiser like vaseline intensive care or nivea. I also swear by Tattoo Goo for older tats as it keeps their colour and sharpness although it smells strongly of lavendar!

My partner uses Bepanthen and thinks is great. Not much scabbing, no itching and heals well.

Hi Ive always been told not to use savlon or vaseline. However my friend Jon used savlon on all his tats and thinks its great. I guess were all different. I use what works for me and thats that. Ive had no problems with any of mine healing. Ive even used Dove soap and then just left them before now too

Well don't laugh but..

I used Preparation H - I was shocked but it really did the business with no serious greasy feel.

I have also used aquaphor from the states which was also ok but not seen for sale in the UK.

well there are various ways to remove tattoo, u can select that works better on your skin.bepanthen is widely used for the purpose but if it does not suit u, avoid it. u can also go for bp cream that.

Bepanthen is a nappy rash cream and contains petroleum which does nothing to preserve the tattoo ink. There are much better products on the market now like After Inked which is petroleum & parabens free, suitable for vegans and is also not tested on animals. It contains powerful anti-oxidant ingredients like grape seed oil which cuts healing time in half and also helps to preserve the tattoo over time. Tattoos can fade over time when your skin is in poor condition and a After Inked can help in this area.

We use that, and a small amount goes a very long way!! We are strict vegetarians and don`t use products tested on animals, so for us, it`s perfect and smells good too.
Our tattoo artist said it is good to use all the time on tattoos, even after they are healed to keep the skin in good order as you said.
