Susie Q Ink Oil is the hidden gem of tattoo aftercare washes. You can easily heal your tattoo while using our Ink Salve, but pairing it up with our Ink Oil is the biggest key to success in the process. This is my first go-to product, even while I am sitting in the chair. One to two pumps is all you need. Spray in your hand (make sure it's clean) and apply to your tattoo. I have my tattoo artists use this in their shop instead of any other products. When I get home, I remove any covering from my tattoo and then apply the Ink Oil again. It helps cool and soften the aggravated skin. I encourage you to wash your skin with Ink Oil. DO NOT USE SOAP. Ink Oil allows the soap to run right off and keeps from drying out your tattoo. Use Ink Oil daily in the shower. If you have a hand tattoo, it is best to use it every time you wash your hands. Remember that a little goes a long way! If you are looking for a good lotion for tattoos, look no further!
Susie Q Ink Salve is your all-day tattoo balm. Smooth and creamy, Ink Salve works to protect your skin and moisturize the tattoo. Your first 72 hours of your new tattoo, this should be your best friend. Apply a THIN layer every couple of hours during the first 72 hours to keep the newly tattooed area moist. Applying a thick layer will not make the salve last longer or the tattoo heal faster. The key here is diligence and repetitive application. You paid good money for your tattoo, and now you have a work of art that you want to last a lifetime. Susie Q Ink Salve tattoo balm will work to protect the tattoo, and re-hydrate it to allow for complete healing.
At night, apply a thin layer of Ink Salve to the tattoo and cover with loose-fitting clothing. This allows the tattoo to breathe, and it keeps the salve on the skin. Use for the first seven days to ensure a smooth tattoo and complete healing process.
