CBD-Infused Creams For Tattoo Aftercare

culture

An important part of getting a tattoo is aftercare, so much so that the niche tattoo aftercare industry has become quite prominent. So prominent that the tattoo industry is worth around $1.6 billion including services, ancillary products, and aftercare. While the art, script, or designs that we choose to get can vary greatly, something many of us have in common is that there aren’t products specifically crafted to help our tattoos heal with vibrant lines, and in some cases, color.

For decades, tattoo artists have spent hours upon hours crafting a glorious piece of art before putting saran wrap over it and telling their clients to apply Preparation H until healed. This simply doesn’t feel right after dropping a big chunk of change on a new piece of art to wear. But the reality is that while healing a tattoo is an open wound, and petroleum-based balms and creams that contain alcohol aren’t the way to heal the wound properly.

Despite hesitancy from the tattoo community, CBD-rich balms, salves, sprays, lotions, and patches are actually proving valuable in this niche market. One reason that this could be is for the anti-inflammatory properties that many have found CBD-infused tattoo creams to help smooth out the recovery process. Though there have been many studies surrounding the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD there haven’t been any related directly to tattoos. Despite this need for research, personal testimonials are inspiring business owners across North America to start crafting their own CBD patches and topicals to market to the tattoo community.
