eucalyptus

1. Eucalyptus Long Lasting Tattoo Pain Relief Plus Healing Properties

 

For proper Tattoo care and Healing

Eucalyptus is a tree found most often in Australia.  The dried leaves and oil are commonly used to make many forms of medicine.

Eucalyptus properties include anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antiseptic, antibacterial, stimulating, and other medicinal qualities. Eucalyptus essential oil is colorless and has a distinctive taste and odor. The leaf is used for infections, fever, upset stomach, and to help to loosen coughs. The leaf is also used for osteoarthritis, joint pain (rheumatism), wounds, poorly healing ulcers, and burns.

Eucalyptus oil should not be taken by mouth or applied to the skin full-strength and with TAT Balm it has been significantly diluted for safety. Other uses include treatment of wounds, burns, ulcers, and tattoos.

The Diluted eucalyptus oil in our tattoo pain relief balm can reduce itching if applied directly to the skin for pain reduction, and is useful in preventing infection and decreasing swelling, and is a key natural ingredient in our Tattoo formula.

witch hazel

2. Witch hazel – Major antiseptic and prepares skin for tattooing

Because of high concentrations of tannins in witch hazel, it makes an excellent astringent, which means it has the ability to remove excess oil from skin and shrink down pores. This is especially useful in the tattoo world, as it tones and expands the layer of skin that will be worked on to make the entire process less painful, with far less of a risk of excessive bleeding.

Witch hazel has been used for years by tattoo artists in a variety of forms, everything from a pre application rub to actually mixing it with the tattoo ink. While this is a great benefit, witch hazel has also been used for centuries as a natural antiseptic. Most acne medicines contain witch hazel as it targets the bacteria in the pores and destroys it. In combination with our other all natural antiseptics, Witch hazel goes to work before and throughout the tattoo healing process, to help keep your wound clean and bacteria free.

Because of the enhanced elasticity that witch hazel provides to your skin, it can in fact reduce the damage to the skin overall. This means that your healing time will be reduced not only because your tattoo is clean and well kept, but also because less damage will have been done in the first place

3. Corydalis  Major Tattoo Pain with Healing Properties

For proper Tattoo care and Healing

A compound found in high mountains of tropical eastern Africa. They are most diverse in China and the Himalayas,  with over 300 species in China. Derived from a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, corydalis has been found to be effective at alleviating pain, pointing the way to a new nonaddictive analgesic for acute inflammatory and nerve pain, according to UC Irvine pharmacology researchers. Researchers note that 75 mg per day of THP (an alkaloid from the plant corydalis) was effective in reducing nerve pain in 78% of those tested, specifically  acute, inflammatory, and chronic/neuropathic pain.

Corydalis makes an excellent pain reducer for Tattoo’s as it specifically targets the small nerve endings, blocking pain receptors.

nutmeg

4.Nutmeg – Powerful antiseptic/ Enhances and clears the skin

Aside from being a delicious addition to many traditional dishes, Nutmeg has many fantastic health promoting qualities, that will bring your tattoo experience to the next level.

Nutmeg has been shown in many studies to have strong antibacterial properties, and is a key part of our Antiseptic system. It prevents the growth of harmful bacteria in the open wound, and when applied prior to a tattoo with our deep penetrating formulagoes to work immediately to help your body kill existing bacteria, and assist in the prevention of growth of more during the actual tattoo process.

In addition to its antiseptic properties, Nutmeg delivers a fantastically strong kick in the pain relief department. It targets nerve receptors in the same manner as many prescription painkillers, without the negative side effects. In many ways Nutmeg is a key component to reducing the pain of the tattoo process.

While Nutmeg is fantastic for healing because of its antiseptic properties, there is another bonus to its use. When applied to the skin, Nutmeg helps clear and brighten it. It promotes the healing and reduction of scar tissue, which is essential in a healing tattoo. We use Nutmeg to increase the likelihood of scar free healing of your tattoo. Remember, the clearer and healthier your skin, the clearer and healthier the tattoo is!!!

hops

5. Hops –

 

While many of us know hops as a flavoring agent in our favorite beverages, Hops do more than that. When the strobules (which is the cone shaped part of the plant) are dried, a strong agent known as lupulin can be extracted from the plant and used for many beneficial purposes.

In the tattoo process we use this extracted agent as a strong natural painkiller. It acts as a nerve sedative and quickly goes into effect to calm the nerve endings, and reduce the current and long term pain of the tattoo needle. It helps reduce the inflammation and swelling that sometimes occurs, and enables the user to have a much more pleasant experience.

In addition to these, hops also has strong antibacterial properties, and is used in our formula to drastically lower the risk of infection in the tattoo, and assist in a reduced healing time. As a deep penetrating antiseptic, it provides great assistance in the long term protection and health of your tattoo.
