    Tattoos healing is a very personal experience. Ask 100 people “How should I heal my tattoo” and you’ll get 105 different answers. I am currently in the process of getting a half-sleeve cover up done that is taking 3 separate sessions. This seemed like a great time to experiment with different healing products and see what I liked the best – FOR ME. Your results may vary.I compared:Aquaphor Healing Ointment No-Touch Applicator – 3 oz + Unscented lotion (the most recommended method on the internet)Tattoo Goo The Original After Care Salve, 0.75 Ounce (the oldest product that I know of still on the market. Seriously, I used this stuff to heal my first tattoo in 1993).And Hustle Butter Deluxe – Tattoo Butter for Before, During, and After the Tattoo Process – Lubricates and Moisturizes – 100% Vegan Replacement for Petroleum-Based Products – 5 ozQuick answer – I prefer Tattoo Goo, but it doesn’t seem to matter much.I see literally NO DIFFERENCE in quality of healing/color brightness retention/speed of healing/etc between each of the products. None. They all have had the exact same result on my skin. Again, your results may vary. I can only speak to what I have experienced.That said – here’s the breakdown and why I like Tattoo Goo best:Aquaphor is very goopy and hard to apply in the early stages of healing. I don’t like how much it pulls on my skin and rubbing it in to very tender areas is not fun. The first day of healing I felt like a monster with this stuff all over my arm and I could not let my skin touch anything else I left a greasy, inky spot behind. The day I woke up to heavy peeling, I was happy to switch to lotion. But I just didn’t feel the lasting moisture from regular lotion and had to reapply many times a day.Tattoo Goo is nice to apply. It’s light and has an salve style oil base that goes on very easily. I do find that sometimes I have to dig a bit out to speed up the application process (I’m covering a lot of skin), but I don’t mind. It provides a thin layer of moisture that I can feel long after applying it, which meant I only needed to do it 3 or 4 times a day. Applying right before bed left no marks on my sheets. Con: You do not get much in a tin. I used the entire .75 ounce tin healing one session of my half-sleeve.Hustle Butter is also nice to apply. It is more of a creamy, body butter feel to it than Tattoo Goo which applies very smoothly. A tiny bit goes a long way on the skin and it is easy to spread if too much gets in one area. The layer of moisture feels thicker than Tattoo Goo’s and I can feel it on my fingers when I touch my arm after applying. I have to wipe it off before I touch other things. It does last quite a while though which means only applying a few times a day as well. This is also a much better value than Tattoo Goo. You get a TON in this jar. If you’re going to be healing a large piece or getting a bunch or work done – this is probably the way to go. If you’ve got something small, it’s way too much and dropping $15 for a product you’ll only use a small portion of can be off-putting. You can of course continue to use it as a general skin care product. It smells better than Tattoo Goo, but I’m not a big fragrance person so I don’t put a lot of stock in that either way.The issue is with my sheets. If I apply Hustle Butter right before bed, I have to put a towel over the area I’m sleeping on because it will transfer to the sheets, pillow, clothing, whatever. I’m sure it will wash out (I hope! I haven’t tried yet). But to me, that’s a deal breaker. So even though I would need to buy 3 tins of Tattoo Goo to heal my arm (which works out to about the same price as this jar) I prefer it for the non-transferring nature of it.This product is very nice, feels and smells great and lasts a long time. It’s just a little heavy for my skin and doesn’t seem to soak in as well as Tattoo Goo. So that’s my personal preference.

    Let me start off by saying I’ve been getting tattooed since 2009. I’ve always used the same set up: medical antibacterial soap and aquaphor. Never varied from that and I’ve never had an issue.With this latest addition to my arm sleeve, I had a terrible reaction to the aquaphor. I broke out into a rash with itchy and burning hives. And I was desperate for something to cover this fresh tattoo with. I got tattooed on a Sunday and by Tuesday I was freaking out. I saw good reviews on this and I went for it.Hustle Butter. Holy. Crap. First off, it got here 3 days earlier than I expected. Second, it’s better than I imagined. Within hours my tattoo was feeling and looking much better. I haven’t lost any ink, save the inking that always happens a few days post tattooing. It looks incredible. It keeps my arm moisturized without a greasy film or transfer onto my clothes which the Aquaphor always caused. And, the rash was completely gone after just one day of using it. It also has brightened up older sections of my arm which are colored.I’ll never use anything again. Hustle Butter, you’ve got a lifetime customer now.
