Inkmedix is run by Ryan Heslop and Amanda Elias, the business was founded in 2014 and is the sister site of skincare brand Bravura London.
When I (Amanda) had my tattoo in Las Vegas I was sold an aftercare kit to take care of my tattoo, when I had my tattoo in the UK I was given aftercare advice and told to apply nappy rash cream, unfortunately I had a reaction to the cream which affected the appearance of my tattoo. This led me to research tattoo aftercare and I realised not only did many people have these reactions but the ingredients in the nappy rash cream can actually affect the appearance and vibrancy of the tattoo.
Being in the skincare industry (Bravura London) I wanted to create the best aftercare product for tattoo's. It's taken 3 years but I'm finally happy with the formulation. As an aromatherapist I wanted to use essential oils but there aren't any long term studies to show if these oils can affect the tattoo, so we didn't use them. I wanted something light that allows the tattoo to breath but was also extremely soothing and nourishing, this is why the formulation is an oil, it's easy to apply and won't leave the skin soggy which again can affect how your tattoo looks.
You can use this product daily from the day you have your tattoo until a week after. You can then continue to use it regularly to protect the vibrancy of your tattoo.
