Chemist Warehouse shoppers go mad for tattoo aftercare range: 'Game changer'

There's a new way to take care of your ink.

Taking care of your tattoos is an essential part of keeping them looking good over the course of your life, whether they're brand new or you've had them for years. Now, Chemist Warehouse customers have found an easy way to care for their tatts thanks to Ink Nurse — and they're raving about the results.

"Game changer," wrote one fan in an online review, while another said, "Fantastic cream. Brought my aged tatts to life."

Available at a Chemist Warehouse near you, Ink Nurse is an Aussie-made cream that provides effective tattoo aftercare and lasting ink protection, as well as rejuvenating ink pigment caused by age or sun damage.


It's designed in conjunction with the Australian Tattoo Guild and contains ingredients specifically to help maintain different aspects of your tattoo. Shea butter nourishes your skin and helps your tattoo maintain its vibrancy; rosehip oil fades shadows around your tattoo; chamomile prevents redness and swelling from occurring around new tattoos; coconut oil can help prevent against infections, and jojoba oil is healing and rejuvenating.

If you've just had a tattoo, Ink Nurse can be used as early as day two to help with the healing process. It helps skip the "itchy phase" of the process too, reducing skin flakiness and keeping your skin soft.

Because the cream is extremely nourishing, it can also be used to soothe rashes, insect bites, eczema and psoriasis. It's also been proven to soothe and help second-degree burns in just a few days.

Vegan friendly, it's paraben-free with no synthetic colours and no petroleum.
