I have used neosporin, might try that aquaphor on my next tattoo, that won't be until it stops being cold, though.

Aquaphor. Both my tattoo artists recommended it, and my tats healed without issues. If your tat is exposed to the sun, sunscreen will help keep the color from fading.

A&D ointment is good, but my favorite is a brand called aquaphor.

I would really question the knowledge of a tattoo artist that recommends vaseline.

This was what my son was told to use by his tattoo artist.

I used a non scented sensitive body lotion and sensitive soap. That was it.
