We based our tattoo aftercare products on two of world’s most precious essential oils because of their exceptional healing and balancing properties, that no other oil provides:

Rose Oil (Rose Otto) /Rosa damascena/, Bulgaria – the essential oil contains more than 300 active compounds with excellent antioxidant, antibacterial and antiseptic properties.  It speeds up the natural healing process, as well as refreshes, nourishes and soothes the skin.  Rose oil fights free radicals and stimulates collagen production that helps slow down the ageing process.  It has a toning and astringent effect, and is known to improve circulation, and prevent scarring.  Conditions the skin and helps retain tattoo colors bright.

Lavender Oil /Lavandula angustifolia/-widely used in different ointments and burn salves, this essential oil has strong analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and stimulating properties and successfully fights abscesses, allergies, bruises, burns, cuts and scrapes.  Lavender Oil contains several distinct healing chemicals with strong healing and calming properties.  Soothes the skin and prevents rashes and breakouts; reduces pain and inflammation.  Helps your body fight against irritation, eczema and sores.

Always apply a thin coat of Rose Tattoo Aftercare with clean, dry fingers (just enough to make it moist and shiny). Repeat this procedure 4-5 times a day for the first 10-15 days. For the first couple of weeks your new tattoo should always be moist. If it become stiff or/and dry it might form thick scabs that crack and remove some of the color of your tattoo.
