- Protect Your Tat from Harmful Rays
One of the most common reasons for tattoos fading and discolouring is due to sunlight exposure. Whilst enjoying the blissful sun, you must remember about your body art! Look for products containing SPF and make sure to apply frequently to protect your tattoos from the sun’s harmful rays and prevent discolouration.

- Keep it Moisturised
Many people think that after a few days they are able to stop moisturising their tattoo, but daily application is essential for keeping skin hydrated and helps to reduce signs of ageing. This, in turn, will help to prevent any colour fading – the key to a fresh and vibrant tat!
Check out our Protecting Daily Moisturiser which also contains SPF 15… win win!
- Water, Water, Water!
Adding lots of water to your daily routine will help to keep your skin looking healthy which is vital since this is where your tattoo is placed. Drinking plenty of water means that your body art will stay looking smooth and hydrated.
- Don’t let your tattoo dry out
Ensure you deeply moisturise your tattoos with the SPF15 moisturiser, using the oil during the evening or for a more deep conditioning to enhance the vibrancy of tattoos.
Although it is inevitable that your tattoo(s) will naturally fade over time, you will be able to keep them looking vibrant for longer by simply dedicating a few minutes each day to add to maintaining them.
