Our DIY Tattoo aftercare balm is a must have for all tattoo lovers.
As most people will know, aftercare is a very important part of having a tattoo. However, many people don’t pay enough attention to this. Furthermore, ignoring your tattoo aftercare instructions will cause your tattoo to become dry and it may also scab. As a result, you may end up with faded tattoos.
Additionally, the tattoo could also very itchy. Itching a new, scabbed tattoo will bring the colour off, resulting further in colour loss.

Step 3
Next on our DIY Tattoo aftercare balm, we need to add in our Vitamin E capsules. To do this, simply open up your capsules by hand and pour the contents into the melted mixture.  After these have been added, it’s now time to take the mixture off of the heat.


Step 4
Last but not least, it is time to leave your balm to cool for ten minutes. Additionally, it is important to note that it is easier to transfer your mixture whilst it is still slightly warm.

Furthermore, we also recommend storing your mixture in a container or several with lids. As a result it will keep your balm fresher. Once transferred, leave to mixture to set and become firm.

DIY Tattoo aftercare balm- How to make.

Although the mixture for our tattoo aftercare balm seems to have quite a few ingredients, it is however, very simple to make. 

Step 1
To begin making our DIY Tattoo aftercare balm, you first need to gather your ingredients and utensils.
First, gently melt you shea butter in a pan, ensuring that you do not bring it to a boil. Next, add in your Beeswax and cocoa butter. Continue to gently stir on a low heat until they are all melted and mixed well.


Step 2
Once the mixture is melted and fully mixed together, it is then time to add the Jojoba oil in and mix thoroughly again.
Next, it is time to add in your essential oils. Although we like sweeter smelling oils, you can chose any scent that you prefer. Again, stir in well to melted mixture.
