Tattoo Cream – Tattoo Lovers Care

Sold out

We believe aftercare is more than a one step solution. Tattoos are for life and should be treated for life. In order to best preserve your ink it must be treated appropriately throughout each stage of healing and beyond.

Our tattoo cream aids the itchy flaking period that comes after scabs have formed. The easy-spreading consistency of the cream is ideal for smoothly applying over rough scabs. The all-natural blend of oils, butters, and rose water all help to provide soothing itch relief while aiding healing. This cream is fragrance-free, getting its scent from functional essential oils like lavender and calendula. Your tattoos are a part of your permanent expression and deserve more than aftercare, they deserve forever care.

Works on Dry


Use Tattoo Lovers Care Tattoo Cream when your tattoo is scabbed over and starting to itch. Scabbing and inflammation cause the skin to experience redness, swelling, warmth and pain. The natural oils in our cream help combat these issues by absorbing into the skin to promote healing from within. The cream’s consistency applies smoothly and evenly across the rough surface of a scabbed tattoo.

Our cream is pharmacist and herbalist formulated with safe, all natural and vegan ingredients that go on smooth and non-greasy.

Our jojoba oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter base help provide moisture and relief while your ink heals. It also includes a blend of hemp extract, helichrysum, and rose water to calm the itch while promoting healing. Lavender, calendula, and the other essential oils work together to soothe and heal the skin while providing a relaxing lavender-citrus scent--all without artificial fragrance.

Whether you’re taking care of a discreet piece or a full on sleeve our Tattoo Lovers Care Cream provides the best healing and results for your ink. It also works great long after healing to help keep tattoos vibrant.

The Stages of Tattoo Healing

As your tattoo heals and ages, so too do its needs. This is why our product line extends past aftercare and into “forevercare.” Each product addresses a specific stage of tattoo care. Before you get inked, you can make sure your tattoo is clean with our foaming soap. While your artist is giving you the tattoo, they can use our glide to reduce redness and swelling while increasing your endurance in the chair. Right after you get inked your skin needs the soreness reduction and intense healing power of our salve. Once those scabs form, you can find itch relief and powerful moisturizer in the cream. At every stage of healing, your tattoo has unique problems. That is why we tailored unique products for every step of the way.

Uncap, Apply, Enjoy

1) After washing your tattoo (and your hands), pat the tattooed area dry with a paper towel.

2) Rub Tattoo Lovers Care Cream in your fingers and hand and apply a thin layer gently over the scabs.

3) Repeat this process 3-5 times daily until all the scabs fall off.

4) After the scabs are gone, use Tattoo Lovers Care SPF lotion (coming soon!) to complete the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Tattoo Lover’s Care work so well?

TLC begins and ends in nature. The premium ingredient blends protect your skin as it heals, while giving it nutrients needed for optimal healing. Even the smell is functional, as it is a byproduct of essential oils known to be powerhouses of skincare and wound healing.

What puts TLC a cut above other aftercare options?

Our top shelf ingredients and pharmacist formulations are only the beginning of what put us a cut above. Our main difference is in the stages of healing. We designed a product specifically for each stage of tattoo healing. This means that your skin gets exactly what it needs as it heals and ages.

Can I start using TLC at any stage of tattoo healing or aging?

Absolutely! Of course, we recommend using it from the very beginning. But there is no problem with coming into the program late.

Does TLC really work on all skin tones and types?

It does! TLC is compatible with all skin tones and skin oil types and will have the same great effect for all kinds of skin.

My friends have been raving about your products, are their results typical of TLC users?

Typical results from TLC include faster and more comfortable healing. When used during the tattoo as a glide, artists report drastically reduced redness and color clarity, along with increased endurance under the needle.

When should I start using TLC?

Always follow your artist’s recommendations! But TLC can be applied before, during, and immediately after getting your tattoos.
