NEVER use vaseline on fresh ink, petrolium jelly withdraws tattoo ink, makes your tattoo patchy, and will hurt like HELL!

Any creams that aren't petrolium based are good to use! A good recommendation is Bepanthem (nappy rash cream, ideal for healing skin), or palmer's cocoa butter with Vitamin E works just as well and smells awesome!

Are tattoos on thighs supposed to stay swollen?

Well due to their location, tattoos on the thighs are usually a little sore just since your weight is on them. They will stay slightly sore for about a good week, but should dissipate from there. If they hurt too much, use a warm compress. For this, you would just use a paper towel that has warm to slightly hot water on it. Apply aftercare ointment as regular as well.
