I was at an event with Me Anima this spring, and got a tattoo oil in the goodie bag afterwards.
After that, I have been eager to get a tattoo almost exclusively to be able to test the oil haha. This is because Annika (at Creative Make Up) fell in love with this after testing it, and often uses it on customers after permanent makeup. I have tested how it feels on the skin, but also want to be able to put it to the test properly, but it will have to wait unfortunately :)
But Annika likes it so much that she thinks about having it included in the price when tattooing freckles, because then it is important that the redness subsides quickly and that the freckles heal quickly. Because it's not as nice to be as red as you are afterwards, and there is obviously a super big difference between using the oil or not. The skin soothes and the tattoo gets nice much faster with this tattoo oil.
The oil consists mostly of sunflower oil, coconut oil, castor oil, vitamin E, and lavender oil which gives a good scent. The oil soothes, protects, nourishes and moisturizes your tattoo.
I think it feels very nice on the skin! Had it been an oil for the body or cuticles or the like, I would have said that it is a bit too heavy, but for a tattoo for extra care (or if you have some super dry areas) I can imagine that it is cruel! And I like to have it on my lips too :)
It does not enter the skin super fast, but it does not feel sticky either, but you feel that it has been lubricated for quite some time. The scent is quite mild for smelling lavender, essential oils can easily smell very strong I think (and so do some of Me Anima's oils) but this one is not so strong actually, but noticeable.
It comes in a spray bottle, which I think is smart when you have to lubricate a specific area like this, then you do not have to pour the oil into your hands first but can spray directly on the area.
As I said, I can not give it two thumbs up without having tested it as it should - on a tattoo, but I can definitely say that I believe in it, and Annika talks so much about it that I dare to recommend it without having tested on your own tattoo actually :)
The oil is on meanima.se and costs SEK 199 for 50 ml.
