How to Use Our Products
Q: How do I care for my new tattoo using the Tattoo Butter?
We recommend listening to your professional tattoo artist for healing instructions. When using the tattoo butter, a little goes a long way. With clean hands, apply a thin amount next to your tattoo. let it melt, then spread a thin layer over your tattoo. This little amount will allow your tattoo to breathe. Over applying will suffocate your tattoo! We usually recommend 2-3x a day or if tattoo becomes dry and tight, remember always use clean hands when applying.
Q: How often should I reapply my shea butter creams?
As often as needed! For our Kava Butter, we recommend reapplying when needed or 2-3x a day. For miniaturization of the body, apply when you feel dry or might need more. Read above for application uses for healing tattoos.
Q: How much shea butter should I use?
A little goes a long way. You only need a thin layer, this puts a protective barrier and lets your skin breathe.
