Petroleum Jelly is an essential item in any tattoo studio. It has a range of uses including during the tattooing process and in the aftercare too. This petroleum jelly has been highly refined to provide you with an almost pure product. Petroleum jelly is used in tattooing to avoid irritation to the skin, keep a smooth track for the needle and to help avoid blood collecting and obscuring the vision of the artist. It can also provide a protective layer once the tattoo is finished and help to clean and dry in the first few hours after it is finished.
