Tattoo Tonic is a blend of hand selected natural essential oils and shea butters to help heal and soothe your freshly inked tattoo.
The lovely people behind Tattoo Tonic (TT) love our planet and love animals, so no animal products are used in this tonic, only 100% natural ingredients.
To help the environment, everything from the ingredients in the salve, to the packaging and labeling are sourced right here in New Zealand, in order to support local businesses, cut down on shipping and transportation, and reduce the TT carbon footprint.
With over a decade tattooing in busy tattoo studios TT have stocked and sold a great deal of different aftercare products over the years. Most of these products were made in the USA or in Europe, which is a very long way to travel to get to New Zealand. As a result, the TT aim was to create something that was sourced locally that both TT and their customers would love.
TT are busy tattooing in their studio all week long and that’s where they tried and tested Tattoo Tonic on their customers and themselves.
Lots of tattoo aftercare products currently available on the market, contain petroleum jelly, which is a by-product of the oil industry. It is an unsustainable product, that can block your pores. Other ingredients that can typically be found are parabens such as butylparaben, methylparaben, and propylparaben, As well as animal products such as beeswax and lanolin oil. Tattoo Tonic contains none of these ingredients, instead using essential oils and shea butters extracted from plants and seeds.
Formulated and made by tattoo artists in Wellington, New Zealand.
