My first tattoo was the most nerve wracking experience of my life. I spent hours researching the best after- care, and I’m glad I did. After looking at all the pictures of tattoo gone wrong, I just want to say thank you Ink Integrity! My tattoo healed perfectly, and since I used Ink Integrity’s Tattoo Protector religiously my tattoo practically didn’t fade at all!


– Angela B, Westchester, NY

I’m covered in tattoos, full sleeves. I even have them on my feet and hands (Call me a punk but it was pretty painful!). I was just about to get my elbow done (even worse believe it or not), when I found Ink Integrity. I wanted something to help with the pain and I knew getting my elbow done would require more care. Ink Integrity’s Tattoo Protector was a lifesaver. Not only did it help with the pain (Im a baby…), but it made sure that my tattoo healed up nicely despite it being in a bit of an awkward spot. It’s only been a month but I’ve noticed the tat is vibrant which is what Ink Integrity also does.


– Casey W, Salt Lake City, UT

I get tattoos because I’m happy/sad/glad/bored. Thanks to the randomness of this I’ve wound up with a few that scarred and didn’t hold. I love tattoos and I was tired of paying a lot of money for something that didn’t look right after it healed. I was recommended Ink Integrity by my Tattoo Shop, and the results were amazing. I never had a tattoo heal so well before! I’m hooked for life!
