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, and 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 excellent solutions to ensure your sensitive new body art stays vibrant for years to come.

One of our favorite things to do at this time of year is to head up to the Cascades and celebrate the fertility of our old growth forests.
