  1. How long did you wait to switch from ointment to moisturizer? Ive been using a&d ointment for 2 weeks and recently switched to fragrance free moisturizer
     
  2. 2 weeks is fine, use unscented lubriderm

  6. Its a yin yang on my wrist
     
    the black wasnt filled in completely...
    looks like fucking asshole dude
     
    its only half to. i need to get the other half on my other wrist
     
  7. I was given moisturizer by the artist. Told to only use it.


    My shit is one big scar. 3 dimensional.
     
  8. Very thin layer of Aquaphor for 3 days, 3-4 times a day. Then Curel Ultra Healing about 3 times a day or anytime it's itchy. Should be completly healed in a month. Works wonders for my tattoos.
     
  9. There are a lot of different ways for tattoo aftercare.
     
    I prefer the a+d ointment myself, mostly because it's scentless and has a lot of healing components in it.

  10. I used my "goo" mostly until the scabs fell off. I still use it from time to time just to make them look brighter.Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I747 using Grasscity Forum mobile app
     
  11. Aquaphor 2-3 times a day for a week, then apply daily for another 2 weeks and after that just apply whenever your skin is looking dry. Used that method for both of mine.

  12. I use Benpanthen for the first couple of days, heat the tube in hot water so its not as thick, you want to stop using it when it stops flaking. Apply 2-3 times a day.
     
    After that i use Diprobase, which is just a moisturiser for sensitive skin, and i think its used mainly for eczema. use for 1-2 weeks depending on how its healing. use when it gets a little dry
     
    different parts of the body heal differently, as do different artists, so just have to keep an eye on it
     
  13. I thinks 2 weeks is allmost ok i think so it would take time
     
  14. The normal period is 2 weeks and for some the switch when they feel that the ointment not effect, so what ever is your idea or info, just keep up for 2 weeks then switch, be careful :) .
     
  15. Ointment? Lol I have two tattoos and have only used moisturizer. Fuck lol whatever they still look good
