How quickly can I see results on old and new tattoos?

Faster than you think. Our Brightener Balm helps increase the brightness and vibrancy of all tattoos immediately and over time. With more usage, results get better. On older tattoos, our formula rejuvenates and sharpens the edges of work that may have experienced sun damage and everyday wear and tear over the years. And on newer tattoos, it helps maintain a fresh look for years to come.

Can this be used on black/gray and color tattoos? Suited for sensitive skin?

Yes. INK the original has been tested and proven to work on all styles of tattoos. Also, all our products are dermatologist-reviewed and suited for all skin tones and skin types. And they’re fragrance-free as fragrance is the biggest reason for negative skin reactions.

How is this different than a petroleum-based product?

Our entire lineup is petroleum-free. Petroleum jelly creates an illusion of hydrated skin by creating a thick, oily and shiny film over the skin. In reality, petroleum-based products actually clog pores and stop skin from producing its own moisture. This leaves skin much drier in the long-run. INK the original is toxin-free, made without petrolatum, mineral oil, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial dyes and colors.

Nice and bright

I bought this after reviewing many tattoo balms. My tattoo on my back is darker in color and started to look somewhat dull. After putting Ink the Original on, the colors started to pop and looked like they did when I first got the tattoo. I would definitely buy this again.

Definitely brightens!

I have a lot of black and grey work and this balm definitely brightens them up! Makes the ink look newer and isn’t greasy like a lot of balms. A little goes a long way and once it dries it lasts all night!
