Tattoo Care Products

Ink Rx


Our flagship product, Ink Rx, includes all four of our core ingredients: a base of beeswax and olive oil infused for 1 month with the healing herbs yarrow and comfrey.

Our founders invented Ink Rx after years of dissatisfaction with the available aftercare options: petroleum-based, non-organic, non-tattoo-specific, and other sub-par products.

We invented Ink Rx to heal and preserve tattoos under any conditions.

  • 4 simple ingredients
  • healing herb infusion
  • petroleum-free
