Bad bad bad

I applied Dr pickles to my tattoo, but unfortunately, it caused discomfort. My arm became unusually puffy, and I wouldn’t recommend it. While some people have positive experiences, mine was not one of them. Show details

Burns skin and made it swell

I was recommended this cream by my tattooist. However it made my skin burn and also made it swell. Started using coconut oil instead. Show details

Red and Irritated

I have a number of previous tattoos, but for this new one I thought I would give Dr Pickles Tattoo Balm a try. I waited the usual few days before I took my second skin off, gave my tattoo a gentle clean then used the Mr Pickles. My skin became very red and irritated. I’ve washed off the balm, and my skin is starting to calm down now.
I definitely don’t recommend. Show details

Never again!

I usually use bepanthen on my tattoos, but I had ran out thought I’d try Dr Pickles as it had been recommended by the tattoo artist. I’ve got a couple large tattoos so not my first rodeo when it comes to knowing when to start applying aftercare. Started off as a tingle but then moved to a scratchy burning feeling, was really painful if any light hit the tattoo with the Dr pickles on it. Other reviews calling people “clowns” because “they are uneducated and don’t know when to apply” is absolute crap. I have no known skin issues or allergies and only started applying 3 days after getting the tattoo so did everything right as I’ve done with all my other tattoos and couldn’t believe how horrible this product was. Would not recommend to anyone. Show details

Burns and caused a rash

I have had many tattoos and usually use Hustle Butter (which is amazing). I used Dr Pickles and it burnt and caused a massive rash all throughout my new tattoo and the surrounding area. Some of the tattoo is still raised and bubbled. Show details

OMG IT BURNT AND BLISTERED MY SKIN!!

Yeah nah! My tattoo is now blistered and red and swollen! Going back to using the good old non perfume moisturizer or paw paw ointment. Would not recommend this product. Ok to use on old tattoos, new ones, HARD PASS! Show details

Crap, drew ink from tatt

I have recently gotten several large tattoos. I used bepathen for all of them, then on the last one with a different artist (and reps from dr pickles happened to be there) I was told that bepanthen was really bad for tatts and given a whole bunch of reasons, so naturally I got myself some dr pickles.
I went from artists being amazed at how fast and well my tatts all healed, looking amazing after only a week and healing beautifully in the months that followed, to one week in and half the ink falling out and already having to book in a fix because it looks like a 10 year old tatt I treated like sht.
Nothing changed about my aftercare except for switching to this.

Would never touch this product again. Show details

Best tattoo aftercare on the market

I can't help but laugh at all the clowns who got burns from putting cream on a freshly inked tattoo. Everyone who is covered in ink like myself knows to wait a day or two. I've been using Dr Pickles since 2013 when I purchased it directly off their website. Easily the best product on the market. Doesn't dry the skin out like Bepanthen , only needs to be applied twice a day and doesn't cause pimples under the skin from oily ness like normal paw paw does. Do yourself a favour and use this product, you won't regret it especially if you administer it correctly. Show details

LOOOVE

ive used this for my last 5 tattoos. i find that this stays hyderated for much longer than anything else ive used.
i've also used it to heal all my cosmetic tattoos such as microblading and lip blush. It is also safe to use as a lip balm and moisturiser on super dry skin so its very well priced for the products many uses. Show details

Don't listen to the iT bUrNt mE muppets

I'm going to start with the fact that the negative reviews of it burns are stupid.. it burnt them because they put it on before the tattoo started to scab cream is used to prevent the scab from drying out improper use of a product is not the fault of a product I'm covered in tattoos these other people probably have little experience with tattoos and after care

I only just started using this and it's by far the best cream I've used helped my throat tattoo heal very nicely great quality product Show details

DO NOT recommend

within 1 minute of applying this balm my skin WAS ON FIRE!! within 2 minutes my tattoo and all skin around the area began to swell, turned bright red , the tattoo raised and it began to draw COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF INK FROM MY NEW TATTOO!!!! ram as fast as I could to a chemist, bought hand soap and washed it off at the back of my car with a bottle of water which gave me INSTANT RELIEF!!
it has taken 4x nurofen and a cold pack to now have my tattoo back to how it looked and felt before using this aftercare balm.
hoping it has not destroyed my ink.
100% DO NOT RECOMMEND!!! Show details

Best tattoo balm

This balm accelerated the healing of my most recent tattoo by I would say a week or so! Smells nice and easy to apply, not sticky. Highly recommend this product for any tattoo healing. Also great for older tattoos. It really seems to brighten them up and hydrate the skin. Show details

It’s okay…

In terms of healing my tattoo and keeping it moisturised, it’s doing great. The formula is too thick for my liking and takes forever to absorb into skin. Lint and hair gets stuck to the balm easily. I got my tattoo on my forearm and it Left a rash on my inner elbow area, it’s turned red, scaly and now hurts. Wouldn’t use near joints that bend often. Show details
