There are a lot of stigmas our there about how you need to heal your tattoo and what process you should go through when performing tattoo aftercare. What I’ve come to realize is that there are a million ways to heal a tattoo and depending on whoever you are talking to… someone always has the right answer
Obviously, there is more than one way and Im always interested in learning about what other people are doing to heal their tattoos. Lately, I have been on a binge of shifting my lifestyle to an organic and healthier way of being. I read a book by Dr. Mark Hyman called The UltraMind Solution which goes into depth about living a healthier lifestyle, which will in turn cause your brain function to increase. His research has actually been shown to decrease depression, anxiety, and other debilitating psychological diseases that millions of people are affected by.
After reading this it made me wonder how big of an effect organic oils would have on the body when healing a tattoo. I got into doing some research and started to realize that there are alot of people out there that swear by using certain types of oil(specifically coconut) that will assist in retaining the color and healing tattoos faster than the other creams and lotions that are boasted amongst the tattoo community.
Well, I gave it a shot. You don’t need alot just a simple layer like the other ointments that are recommended.
Some perks of using organic coconut oil for the tattoo healing process include:
- Less itching
- Better at moisturizing the area
- Anti-Inflammatory benefit
- No chemicals added
- Cheaper than other tattoo aftercare products
Here are the best options I would recommend for you to use:
My favorite is the Kirkland Organic Coconut Oil because not only does it work great – it is genuinely organic and affordable
A couple other options you may enjoy are:
These are options that are organic coconut oils certified by the USDA. They are non GMO and would be ideal to use on your new tattoo to test out the healing your tattoo with coconut oil.
Have you ever thought of using coconut oil on your tattoo?
