Dr Pickles

Dr Pickles Vegan Formula Tattoo Balm is a natural paw paw based tattoo after care balm, can be used on both new tattoos specially formulated to aid in the healing and recovery. It is also perfect for use on old tattoos to bring out the vibrancy of tattooed skin.

Made in Brisbane, Queensland using both fresh and fermented Australian pawpaw, coupled with hydrating D-Panthenol, Dr Pickles Vegan Formula Tattoo Balm is a moisture rich natural antiseptic that creates the perfect climate for a tattoo to heal and retain its original vibrancy.

Dr Pickles Vegan Formula Tattoo Balm is a revolutionary product that combines the best of both products, together with some other skin friendly nutrients, to produce the perfect all-natural tattoo after care.

The ingredient combination has proven successful in reducing scab formation and skin dehydration, whilst soothing tender freshly tattooed skin.

Directions of Use:


For a fresh tattoo

Most tattoo artists and collectors recommend and follow the Dr Pickles Tattoo Aftercare Method for fresh tattoos: 

  1. After the tattoo is completed, most tattoo artists will wrap over the fresh tattoo with cling film (plastic wrap). This can be removed after 2-4 hours.
  2. Before touching your fresh tattoo, sanitise your hands with Dr Pickles Original Formula Deluxe Foaming Tattoo Wash.
  3. When removing the film, wash your fresh tattoo with cold water and Dr Pickles Original Formula Deluxe Foaming Tattoo Wash. Gently remove all fluids and blood with your clean hands (do not press down hard) under the running water. 
  4. Pat the tattoo dry with a clean towel or paper towel and let it air until the skin is starting to feel tight and dry. It is important to let the tattoo breathe like this any time it gets wet before it goes into the peeling stage. Most tattoos should be washed 2-3 times daily.
  5. Apply a thin layer of Dr Pickles Vegan Formula Tattoo Balm to your dry tattoo until it is completely healed (this is usually around 14 days). The layer should be just enough to make the tattoo shine. 
  6. Continue applying Dr Pickles Vegan Formula Tattoo Balm as directed until the tattoo heals.

 To revitalise a healed tattoo

After your tattoo is healed, you should apply a thin layer of Dr Pickles Vegan Formula Tattoo Balm to your tattoo collection as a moisturiser to keep your tattoos looking shiny and bright.

For everything else!
