I used this for the first time after I got my last tattoo since it was suggested by my tattoo Artist & I wish I knew about it earlier. I used other products on my other pieces, i.e. Tattoo Goo, and this worked just as well, if not better and it was much less expensive.
The beauty part is not only did my ink heal beautifully, but I can use this product for other things well after my tattoo healed.
I highly recommend Aquaphor for after tattoo care.
