Well that was a good thing to know specially for veg tattoo fans. But how effective is it and how long does it take to show the results?

I just invested in After Inked for my new tat. At nearly 15 it better be good!! lol It does smell gorgeous though.
Used savlon on my first tat, and bepanthan on my second. Both of which worked well, although the one treated with the savlon has faded a bit (it was done 3 years ago though). Have been putting after inked on half of the old tattoo to see what difference it makes, and it really does appear to look brighter, so we shall see how it does in the longer term.

Different skin types react differently to the lotions. While bepanthen may cause allergic reactions to some, it did actually work in my case.

Hi

I used afterinked on my backpiece first sitting it was ok (no reactions) but didn't do much for the itching.

The plus side ink stayed in well but at 15 a go i bought 5 tins of tattoo goo for 20 and a tube of Savlon and these combined are just as good.

I am testing a variety of different products to see which works best and costs etc.

Take Care
Matthew

I was a bit itchy using the after inked for the first week aswell Matthew, at the price I paid, I think i'd probably stick to savlon or bepanthon for my next one and use the after inked once it's healed.
I did find I got a lot of ink come away when I was cleaning the tattoo, didn't get that before (of course, that could just be because it is an all black tat, I have no idea?)

I do love the smell of it though and my tattoo has healed well and the black is still black

Unhappy Plase help.....

I recently got a new tatoo it is a beautiful cover up of an old one i hated.. the new one is black ink with vibrant yellow blue and white colours...i followed the recomemded instuctions and remved the cling film after hours washed it applied savlon then reapplied cling film before wrapping up warm to take the kids to a fire work's display...now the only thing i did against advice there was the savlon i was told to use bepanthan nothing else but i thought i had some at home so never got it only to find out i was wrong....Now when i got back home and undressed to my horror under the cling film was a thick creamy layer of glue like slime and load's of creamy ink so i ran to the bath room washed and the area with anti bac soap and water...the glue like substance stuck to my sink and my tatoo instantly looked alot less vibrant though the black was fine..i applied the dreaded vasaline i now heard to be bad and left it uncovered over night.for fear of oozeing again...in the morning i was really upset to see my piece of art looking dull and even the white look's yellow and the blue dull and merky..not much scabbing though..im now using bepanthen and hoping for the best..Has anything like this happened to anyone else and if so how were the end results..Any advice appreciated...

I research some tattoo after healing tips and here what I found.Improper aftercare can lead to fading of color, scars forming on your piece, and other things that will affect the longevity of your artwork. Remember, what you have is an open wound, the same as a cut or scrape. It must be kept clean and free of bacteria that could lead to infection.

Remember, these are just some guidelines, and what works for me. Follow your artists instructions, until you know what works best for you. Listen to your body, your artist, and keep your ink moist and you should be fine...
