Tattooing, while frowned upon in the early ages is now a new market craze. Presently, tattoos are for both personal and commercial purposes. Style and tools utilised in completing tattoos have changed, however; one thing has remained the same. That is dealing with the itch of the healing tattoo.

Many shops will have an information sheet listing care instructions for your new tattoo:

Moisturize, it
Do, not over moisturize the tattoo
Whatever you do, do not pick your onion peel scabs!

How can someone moisturize and not over moisturize? Simple! Apply daily a slight smear of pure coconut oil on tattoo until fully healed.
