Enhances ink color and prevents fading

Comments about Tattoo Goo Color Guard Stick Color Protector/Sunscreen:

Ouch! Tattoos hurt. I don't care what people say, they all hurt. No one gets thousands of puncture marks in their skin injected with ink and goes: "hey... didn't feel a thing."

I felt something, and I do not wish to have it re-done faster than I have to. I'm talking about touching up existing ink that has been faded by the sun. In the summer, even under clothes, I put sunscreen on my ink. The ones out in the open get it slathered on.

I found a product by Tattoo Goo that I love. It's called the Color Guard Stick. It's an SPF 30 sunscreen with UV/UVA inhibitors that help tattoos from fading from sun exposure. It comes in a .45 ounce stick that looks like a giant Chapstick. It is solid and goes on like Chapstick, too.

Tattoo Goo Color Guard Stick has that familiar sunscreen smell. It retains the SPF rating even after 40 minutes in water. It's not an average sunscreen. It was formulated to preserve the artwork and colorations of body art. 

Not only does Tattoo Goo Color Guard Stick protect your ink, it also enhances and deepens the colors while it's applied. I've been asked a few times if my tattoos are new. No, they're not but they sure do look fresh.

A few things about the Tattoo Goo Color Guard Stick: don't use it on a healing tattoo. If it's less than three weeks old, go with something else. Hmmm... may I suggest the original [Tattoo Goo][1] ? Also, it doesn't rub in as well as normal sunblock. Sometimes at the end of the day, the tattoo on my foot has picked up little bits of dust. It's a little tacky (sticky, not garish), but I don't mind.

It's hypoallergenic. Here are the main ingredients. If you are allergic to them, sorry. Go with sunscreen.

 


- Avobenzone

- Octinoxate

- Octocrylene

- Oxybenzone


Keep it looking good, and avoid needless needles. Tattoo Goo Color Guard will help you do just that!
