Quick answer - because it is a high-quality sun protection ointment that will help you protect your tattoo from the harmful effects of the sun. Our ointment was developed specifically for tattoo sun protection. Remember, this is an ointment not a cream, lotion, or butter. In that way it differs from ordinary sunscreens because of its composition and high proportion of active ingredients that protect the skin. Ointments not only protect the outer skin layer like ordinary sunscreens, but also penetrate deeper to the skin layer, where your tattoo is. There it nourishes and moisturizes skin from the inside, so it stays hydrated and protected longer and better.

3. HOW IT WORKS
Tattoo Care Sun protection is an ointment and not a cream, gel or lotion.
Most damage to tattoos comes from improper care and unprotected sun exposure. To properly protect your skin and your tattoo it is important to understand the process of tattooing. Tattoo is a special ink that is injected into your deeper skin layer with the use of needles. Needles pierce the skin from 50 to 3.000 times a minute to inject the ink, which is then dispersed in your inner skin layer and skin cells. Sun is the worst enemy of your skin and your ink as it dries it out and makes it shrink and crack, plus the UV rays will additionally break up the pigment in your tattoo. The damage will show in the form of discoloration (black becomes green) and tattoo colors fading.

5. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Always store the ointment at room temperature (up to 25 °C / 77 °F) and in a dry and dark place.
For fresh tattoos
Before applying the ointment on a fresh tattoo for the first time, gently rinse it with lukewarm water (without using soap). Dry it in the air or gently wipe it with a paper towel. With clean hands, apply a thin layer of Tattoo Care ointment. Since the structure of the ointment is thicker than the cream, try to apply it by grabbing the ointment with your finger and applying it to the tattoo by tapping (picture below). Wait a few moments for the ointment to warm up slightly to your body temperature and then lightly spread it, without excessive pulling. You can also apply the ointment just by tapping without pulling. Repeat this procedure 3 times a day until your tattoo is completely healed (estimated 2-4 weeks).
One Tattoo Care ointment (35 g / 1.23 Oz) is usually enough for 1-2 weeks of use, depending on the size of the tattoo and the amount of ointment applied.
For older/existing tattoos
Apply the ointment on the tattoo and spread it well. If the tattoo is larger, we recommend that you apply the ointment on different parts and then spread it well all over the tattoo. The effect will be visible after a few minutes as the skin will be more elastic and fresh to look at. If the colors of your tattoo are not too damaged or faded, they will come to the fore again and will be more vibrant and shiny. With regular use (at least 2x / week), your tattoo will maintain a fresh and shiny look, as well as the intensity of colors and clear tattoo lines.

FAQ – frequently asked questions
The difference between Tattoo Care Classic and Tattoo Care Black Rose ointment is that Tattoo Care Classic ointment does not contain any added fragrance and has only gentle scent of its natural ingredients. Tattoo Care Black Rose ointment contains a light Aloe Vera fragrance that makes it smell fresh and divine. Both ointments offer the same effectiveness.
The difference between ointments and creams is in the structure and share of ingredients in them which has impact on their later use and benefits. Ointments contain more oils (80 % oils and 20 % water) and creams usually contain equal shares of both (50 % oils and 50 % water). Due to containing more water, creams are easier to spread (the ones containing the most water are also the ones that are easiest to spread) and are less greasy but are also easier to wash away and mostly protect only the outer layer of your skin.
Ointments penetrate more deeply into the layer of skin called dermis (where your tattoo is) and nourish it more effectively from the inside while also creating a protection layer on outer layer of your skin, which helps it stay moisturized longer. That is why ointments are better moisturizers, work more efficiently and are in most cases better option for your tattoo than a cream.
