What is the best thing to put on a fresh tattoo?
Question by Danielle: What is the best thing to put on a fresh tattoo?
I have 3 tattoos, and everytime I get one, the tattoo artist tells me to put something different on it, my uncle does tattoos in California, and I always saw him putting Vaseline on them. But places I have went to say not to. I am about to get another tattoo and want to know what I should put on it to keep the coor from fading out and keep it from itching.

I hear you, the 1st tattoo I got the guy told me to put neosporine on it for 3 days then to switch to Vaseline Intensive Care hand lotion until it stopped peeling and stopped feeling dry adn tight. The 2nd time I got tattooed the guy told me to use Vaseline (the petroleum jelly) for the 1st 24 hours then to use the Intenstive Care hand lotion. I think the neosporine actually irritated my 1st tattoo but the lotion worked wonders.
