Use Savlon or baby Rash cream.

At my shop we suggest and sell H2Ocean's tattoo aftercare cream, but if the client does not want that we tell them to use a anti-biotic oinment such as bacitration, neosporin, or triple antibiotic, very sparingly for three days...Then switch to a good skin moisturizer that does not contain coloring agents or fragrances....The best is Lubriderm...

The key to using an anti-biotic ointment is to not use very much of it. If you can see it on there you got to much....And only apply it after you wash the old off...

Vasoline, A & D Oinment and such are merely moisture protections, with no theraputic values....Hope this helps....

Is it good to put vasoline on tattoo as yer getting it done?

Vasoline is used for a few reasons during the tattoo process. 1. It reduces bleeding. 2. Reduces ink from spreading on the skin, with the vasoline it balls up so that the artist can see the stencil better. 3. Allows for easier cleaning of excess ink, so as the artist does a line the ink will ball and can be wiped off easier with out smudging the ink everywhere. 4. While working on big pieces, if an artist likes to finish off sections at a time, the artist can apply vasoline to the finished area so as to reduce the staining effect. It is more than safe to have vasoline put on your tattoo during the process, however check that the vasoline is clean and that the artist has taken it out with a new wooden tongue depresser...this is done to avoid contamination.

Can you have a tattoo if you are slow healing?

It takes about 10 days for a tattoo to heal completely. In the healing process a scab forms over the tattoo and if any of the scab is rubbed or knocked off you loose part of the tattoo. If you a slow healing I would suggest not getting one. You may have a underlying condition that is causing this to happen. Talking to your doctor could give you more information.
