Vegan and Cruelty-free Tattoo Aftercare Guide

**Disclaimer: I am not a certified tattoo artist**

This article is totally different than what I normally would write about, but after starting my sleeve I decided tattoo-lovers and skincare should come together to make the perfect ethical aftercare issue.

With that said, discuss your options with your artist because no one likes an infected tattoo!

Ethical Tattoo Aftercare

  1. Vermont Vegan Tattoo SoapVEGAN-FRIENDLY. Only Sold as Wholesale

Vermont Vegan Tattoo Soap™ is made with the same method first used in ancient Babylon. The only difference is that we use organic plant oils proven to prevent infection and accelerate healing.

2. Soap Revolt Tattoo Balm $7.00VEGETARIAN-FRIENDLY. 

A simple and natural tattoo aftercare product that promotes quick healing, helps prevent scabs / infection / itching / loss of color and temporarily relieves pain. A little goes a long way.

3. Brooklyn Grooming Tattoo Balm $22.00ORGANIC & VEGETARIAN.

Most ointments made for tattoo aftercare are loaded with suffocating petroleum jelly which can cause irritation, clog pores and seal off the skin from the oxygen necessary to the healing process. We believe that when your skin is in a fragile state you need a product to help you heal naturally. 

Our Tattoo Balm contains nourishing, regenerating anti-fungal oils and butters known to help ease swelling, calm irritation and in turn aid in the healing process. Use this perfect formula as a soothing salve for freshly inked skin or anywhere your skin might need a little extra boost.

4. LUSH Ultrabalm Body Balm $14.95VEGETARIAN.

Our moisturizing, all-purpose balm is made with plant waxes and nothing else. No petroleum jelly, no mineral oils – just natural goodness. Ultrabalm is versatile because we keep it simple, with only three naturally effective ingredients. We also believe in using the best quality organic, fair trade and vegan (whenever possible) ingredients in our products. Our mix of candelilla wax and organic jojoba oil is a vegan alternative to beeswax; it creates a protective barrier on the skin and locks in moisture, while rose wax soothes irritations. Apply to scrapes to relieve discomfort, to tame flyaway hair, or even as a lip balm.
