Aquaphor is not so good for tattoos. Ill keep saying it. But to each his own.

Actually though the person who did his tattoo recommended it so it has to be good

Its great for the fact that its for protecting the skin with minor wounds and stuff. But for the tattoo itself, it makes the ink rise up to the surface. And same with a and d. But like I said if you feel comfortable with using then of course. My tattoo after care doesn't consist of aquaphor is all. Good luck!

I've used aquaphor on my tattoos with no problem, what ever you do do not wash it with dial soap!! I've seen girls on here reccomending it and I've never done so, only let the warm water gently run over the tattoo not hit it directly or anything! also you only need a very small amount of aquaphor do not over saturate!

It's the right one...BUT Honestly that stuff fades out your tattoo...Not An Opinion Its Fact...if your going to use it use a very very thin layer and only for the first 2-3 days...
I personally used pure coconut oil...magic in a bottle for many things including your tattoo...it actually enhances lines and color in tattoos and you can apply as much as you want for as long as you want...also great for the itchy phase of healing...good luck hun...your choice..

This is what most of the people I know have used and recommended. My tattoo guy also said to use it. None of there's faded. I've herd the trick is to apply just a little bit and only when it's completely needed. But I've never herd if it fading.

Yes, that's what Aquaphor is supposed to look like.
I've used it on some of my tattoos and haven't had a problem but I've been told by a lot of people that it isn't recommended for tattoos. All the times that I've been tattooed in the UK, I've been recommended Bepanthen and I find that that's the best thing I've ever used on mine. I didn't know about it before being tattooed there but now it's the only thing I use on my tattoos.

I am not a fan of using anything of thick on my tattoos. I feel like my skin is suffocating lol. The one thing I trusted on for my tattoos was the St. Ives Unscented body lotion. Easily absorbed, and non sticky, but it does help with the healing process. My tattoos healed quickly with no fuss :D Maybe you can try that?

I have used a few different things on my tattoos. Aquaphor is the only thing that has healed them right, I have even use a cream (after-inked) that is specifically made for healing and keeping the tattoo bright and crisp but I am not a fan during the whole healing process my tattoo was more sore and took way longer to heal and still didnt come out right , how ever when I used aquaphor on my tattoos the healing process was a lot quicker, wasnt as sore and came out looking great, its honestly a matter of opinion but if you tattoo guy/girl told you to use it, use it. They are the professional after all..

I've heard dermatologists as well as my tattoo artist recommend it for aftercare, so I think it should be alright to use. I've used in on a sleeve piece and had no issues, I found it also helped reduce irritation when I had to wear a shirt to the office. I read some more about it on www.aquaphorfortattoos.com and it seems to be alright, but if you're in doubt it wouldn't hurt to contact your doctor or tattoo artist for a 2nd opinion!

The 2 aftercare products you should only use on a tattoo are Lubriderm or Aquaphor. Nothing else. These two products have been time-tested and proven over years of experience and history itself!! Aquaphor is a little bit of a thicker product and a little more expensive, but it’s more than worth it and will heal your tattoo much faster. The one thing that you need to make sure of, is that you rub it all the way in, like you were putting suntan lotion on. I have personally healed a 7 hour solid color tattoo in one week using Aquaphor. I can also tell you that you would be hard pressed to find a reputable tattooist that would disagree with these two products. It is simple…. Lubriderm or Aquaphor. THAT IS IT!! I guarantee they work, but if you use something other than these two products, then you use it at your own risk. Hope this helps some people. I have nearly 20 tattoos now and these are the only products I use. I got my 1st tattoo at 18, I'am now 34, I used Aquaphor on that tattoo and it still looks as good now as the day I got it.
