This is a must if you have tattoos! It is so hydrating and it brightens even the oldest tattoos. I am a first time buyer and I will definitely buy again. It's a great value if you want to keep your tattoos beautiful!!!

I absolutely love tattoo goo! I have been using it for tattoo after care for the last 14 years since I got my first tattoo. There were a couple ones I couldn't find it to use it for and I feel like they aren't as vibrant as the ones I used tattoo goo for. My artist no longer carries it in their shop. I wish Walmart had it individually instead if just the starter pack because after my tattoo heals I don't need the soap anymore but still like to use the lotion and sunscreen.

I love this tattoo lotion better than anything I've tried before! I've used it on almost all of my tattoos, & have had no issues with it! It's vegan, has a pleasant smell, & doesn't feel heavy on your skin! Definitely recommend!

Used this after getting my 2nd tattoo on my wrist. It was very sensitive at first and this helped relieve some of the irritability and itchiness and kept my tattoo area clean. I bought mine online and would definitely buy it again and recommend to anyone who has recently added some ink!

Every so often, when my tattoo acts up, I reach for this. This has become my go to. It calms the itch, as well as hydrates.

I'm covered in tattoos and obviously I have tried just about every cream you can think of to help heal my tattoos. This cream is by far the best cream I have ever used. It goes on smooth and it doesn't take much. I almost feel like my skin is craving this because right when I put it on my skin soaks it up. This is the only cream that HEALS MY TATTOO IN ONE WEEK. I was able to swim and tan after a week. It started to peel the 3rd day which usually doesn't happen until like the 6th day. It has enough ingredients in it to keep your tattoos looking fresh and not faded. They look more vibrant like it's still brand new. I highly recommend this product to all the newbies out there with fresh tattoos. I added my recent tattoo I got in the beginning of March. It looks like I just got it huh? With this lotion yours would look like that too. :)

This is the only thing you will need in your life! Not only has it helped with stretch marks it has made my tattoos more vibrant! I use it everyday!!! I honestly think it is a fair price as some of the money also goes to charity!

I bought the Skinfix Inked balm when I recently got a new tattoo. I love that its all natural ingredients and no petroleum products. The coconut oil keeps my tattoo nicely moisturized and the orange peel extract smells amazing.  It also works well on my older tattoos to help the color come show up better than without it. I would recommend this to anyone who has a new or existing tattoo.
