Magnum reviews: Tattoo Goo


Taking care of a new tattoo is essential to ensure optimal healing and vibrant, long-lasting results. Some traditional aftercare products can be messy, difficult to use, and often contain harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin or cause allergic reactions.

Tattoo Goo is a popular brand with a wide range of tattoo aftercare products. So let's get started – join us now as we review everything there is to know about Tattoo Goo aftercare products!

Tattoo Goo Original Aftercare Salve

Tattoo Goo's flagship product is their original Aftercare Salve or Tattoo Balm. This product is designed specifically for the aftercare of a tattoo. The balm contains eight natural ingredients, including olive oil, cocoa butter and wheat germ oil, which are all rich in vitamins and help encourage healing.

Additionally, original Tattoo Goo has been designed to form an occlusive humectant barrier—essentially, it draws moisture from the surrounding environment to the surface of the skin and traps it there. This process keeps the skin moisturised while also helping to prevent dirt and bacteria from entering the open wound.

Unlike many traditional tattoo aftercare products, it is free of petroleum and lanolin—two ingredients that can clog skin pores over time, or even alter tattoo ink colours.

Rest assured, Tattoo Goo's original salve is the result of meticulous development by pharmacists and has also received approval from dermatologists. This endorsement guarantees that the product not only promotes effective healing but also mitigates any potential skin risks, ensuring your tattoo heals just the way you expect.

Tattoo Goo is available in handy 9.3g or 21g tins, as well as studio packs for tattoo artists wanting to store this product in their studio.

If you require a larger size then check out our MTS Tattoo Balm, which is available in tins ranging from 15ml all the way up to 250ml!

Main benefits of Tattoo Goo Aftercare Salve:

  • non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly into the skins surface
  • the balm's natural ingredients make this a great product even for sensitive skin
  • keeps bright colours looking vibrant, even when the healing process is complete

Tattoo Goo Antimicrobial Soap

The first product in the care kit is the Tattoo Goo deep cleansing soap designed for tattooed skin. This antibacterial soap contains olive oil, which helps moisturise and nourish the skin while also removing dead cells and other impurities.

This effective formula is both alcohol and fragrance-free; the absence of harsh chemicals makes it suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.

Tattoo Goo Lotion

The second product in the complete tattoo aftercare kit is a light lotion that goes on evenly and absorbs quickly, never leaving skin feeling greasy. The inclusion of vitamin A and Panthenol (vitamin B5) makes this product particularly useful during the scabbing part of the healing process, as it relieves itching sensations.

Additionally, this product can be used even after the tattoo has healed to keep the skin moisturised and colours vibrant.
