Natural Tattoo Care

Tattooing is a very old art form and has been practiced by indigenous cultures for over 3000 years. Modern tattooing began in the United States in the mid-1800s. Here in Oregon, we are fortunate to be exposed to a wealth of beautiful body art. Any good tattoo artist will tell you that the aftercare for your new tattoo is the most important part of the process. Gone are the days when petroleum-based products are applied liberally. We have some excellent products to ensure that your sensitive new body art stays vibrant for years to come.
