    Top 5 products to use on a tattoo

    Having a new tattoo invariably exposes you to the risk of contracting an infection. Caring properly for your tattoo is therefore imperative. Here are some of the top products to use on a tattoo to help it heal and prevent painful infections.

    Top 5 products to use on a tattoo

    Recommended by the ‘Great British Tattoo Show’ (GBTS), the following products are perfect for preventing tattoo infections and keeping your tattoo looking its best:

    • Tattoo Aftercare
    • After Inked
    • Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E
    • Inkmedix
    • Tattoo Goo

    Details on these products can be found by following the GBTS link provided above. Another product that apparently works wonders on tattoos is Bepanthen, a nappy rash cream available from many chemists and supermarkets.

    Your tattooist

    Preventing tattoo infections is, however, not only up to you. Your tattoo artist has a duty of care to ensure you are not put at risk of contracting an infection at the tattoo parlour by using sterilised equipment and discarding it after each use. Bound by strict health and safety regulations, they must also make sure you are not exposed to the risk of other tattoo parlour injuries.

    Breach of duty of care

    If your tattoo artists was in breach of his duty of care and you were infected while having a tattoo because dirty needles or other non-sterile equipment were used, you may qualify for personal injury compensation. This also applies if you sustained an injury by having a tattoo parlour accident, such as, for example, a slip, trip or fall. To qualify for compensation, you must have suffered your injury/developed an infection within the past three years.
