Tatto After-Care Product

Tattoo After-Care System

Human Tested's after-care system is designed to heal and nourish your new tattoo. It works with your skin's natural healing process to protect and preserve your new artwork.

Application Instructions

When you get home with a fresh tattoo, here's what to do:

1 Wash your hands!

2 Run a face towel under hot water

3 Place towel on tattoo and hold for about 15 seconds

4 Slide the towel down slowly over the tattoo, until the entire surface has been cleaned

Throughout the healing process, you will notice varying degrees of ink discharge and dead skin cells. During these times, repeat the process. This will help to keep the tattoo clean and encourage white blood cells to come to the surface and assist in healing your tattoo faster.

If you find the hot face towel technique too hardcore, then wash your hands, wash your tattoo with a mild, soap free wash, and skip straight to STEP 5...

5 You are now ready to apply Human Tested’s Tattoo Salve-ation. Massage the salve into your clean and dry tattoo. Massaging the tattoo gently, but thoroughly will stimulate blood flow and help the tattoo to heal faster.

6 Use Human Tested’s Tattoo Salve-ation 2-3 times a day for the first 3 days. This salve is a natural blend of oils and waxes that are safe to put on open skin. It is specifically designed to heal, nourish and protect your tattoo without suffocating it.

7 From day 4 onwards, use Human Tested’s Syringe Cream. This cream has added Vitamin E for skin healing, lavender and chamomile water for soothing the skin, and Zinc Oxide for UV protection. HT Syringe Cream is designed to soothe and nourish a healing tattoo. It contains no artificial fragrances, no lanolin, no petroleum, no parabens or mineral oil. It can also be used as a general moisturiser after your tattoo has fully healed.

Human Tested is a constantly evolving collaboration of my personal passions; natural health, art and tattoos. While there are quality artists around that produce tattoo masterpieces, there’s a shortage of tattoo aftercare balms with the same attention to detail. I created Human Tested from my desire for a tattoo aftercare cream that uses quality natural ingredients, feels and looks luxurious, and is specifically designed for healing tattoos.

The concept began with countless trials in my tiny kitchen. I felt like a craft-market nana, mixed with Willy Wonka and Heisenberg in a vegan chocolate factory! Every batch was made with love and tested on generous friends and family.

While the name ‘Human Tested’ refers to the brand being 100% vegan and cruelty-free, it is also a tribute to the human ‘test-subjects’ who helped develop this tattoo aftercare cream. Each pack is only possible with the support and feedback of everyone who took the time to rub themselves.
