Tattoo Cream


Our Tattoo Cream is great for new tattoos or giving some life to old ink. The feeling of the cream on fresh ink has been described as "someone blowing cool air on it."

Use the Stage 1 Tattoo Salve for the first 1-4 days after getting fresh ink. It's light and cooling, allowing the tattoo to breathe but helping with the heat from the irritated skin. The salve contains coconut oil and castor oil, for the best moisturizing effect and to keep the ink clean, as well as a blend of essential oils that help your skin out.

Stage 2 Tattoo Cream is a small jar that's easy to take with you on the go. This cream can be used on fresh ink or older tattoos.

It's 100% vegan and natural, and packed full of moisturizing oils that keep your skin healthy. The formulation includes vegan plant waxes that create a seal on your skin to promote absorption of the moisturizing oils, but the natural, lightness of the waxes helps your skin to still breathe.

The cream prevents breakouts, unlike most other tattoo care, and it won't clog pores or smother the ink.

The Tattoo Cream contains essential oils typically used for surface burns, so they work with your body as it goes through its process.

Get both the Stage 1 Tattoo Salve and the Tattoo Cream together in our Tattoo Aftercare Kit.

Our products contain absolutely no petroleum or other smothering ingredients typically found in ointments, so as to not slow down the healing process.

As always, we never use any ingredients that could be harmful to you. We make sure all of our ingredients rate a 3 or lower on the EWG SkinDeep Cosmetics Database Scale (which means it's totally safe!).

All products have been thoroughly tested by our team to make sure they work well for bright tattoos. Whiskey, Ink, & Lace's founder, Andi, has a few tattoos, and typical ointments recommended by some tattoo artists made her break out and lose ink.

After much research and formulation, this is what she came up with and it's helped with her tattoo sleeves, knuckle tattoos, stomach and sternum tattoos, and many others. And the best part is it can be safely used as a moisturizer for sunburns, chaffed skin, etc.

Comes in a 4 oz amber plastic jar.

    My tattoo artist told me to get this and I will never buy anything else for my tattoos. Heals amazingly and keeps it from drying out.

    Smells great

    Love this lotion! Smells great, not too overpowering. Makes my tattoos pop and skin feels great.

    I bought this as a last minute stocking stuffer for my husband and I think it may be his favorite gift this year! Smells so good!

    Perfect gift

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my dad, who recently got another tattoo. He absolutely loves it! Since using it, he’s noticed all of his tattoos are bright and look new. The smell isn’t bad either. I look forwarding to purchasing more after I get my tattoo.
