What do you usually put on your tattoos to help your tat heal nicely?

I know some people prefer specialist tattoo balms but my tattooist always recommended good old-fashioned E45 cream and it always worked a treat for mine.

Some people swear by pile cream! I know I'm immature but that always cracks me up!

My last tattoo artist suggested Aquaphor and that worked great. I have also used tattoo goo but I lost it and cannot find it anywhere around her now!

LOL childofmusic I too have heard all that about them all! I think it just depends on how much you are putting on it etc...I used tattoo goo in the past and got some major clumping scabs which they say is not good as that tends to pull the ink out.

With the light coating of A&D I barely had any scabbing it was amazing! Was more like how your skin peels after sunburn. I get compliments constantly over the brightness of my arms...I also am a HUGE fan of sunscreen though which def helps protect the colour!

Aquaphor and Aveeno. I had to redo the Aquaphor on my dragonfly when it got sunburned. Augh!

I use A&D, it's the only thing that works well for my tattoos. A&D can screw up a tattoo but only if you use a huge amount of it constantly... it can bleed out the ink. So I only use a very light amount every 6-8 hours or if it starts to feel dry.
