Natural Tattoo Care Balms & Oils

At Archeus [Ah-kee-us], our tattoo products are handcrafted from the finest herbal oils and extracts in our Hawke’s Bay apothecary.

We believe that effective tattooing balm and aftercare products do NOT need to be made from synthetic ingredients. We draw upon centuries of herbal wisdom to create and handcraft balms and oils that are ideal for healing new works of art and to keep old favourites looking and feeling amazing. We have collaborated with leading NZ tattoo artist Dean Sacred to create our organic and vegan Supernatural Tattoo balm.

Our balms are also used by tattoo artists when working on skin.

Some customer feedback on Archeus tattoo products:

“I used this balm after trying two other products to help with the burning and itching--and healing--process. Not only did it work beautifully, it was also beautiful to use--lovely scent, lovely feel, and ooh how it helped. Thank you thank you!”

“I have had a lot of ink put on my body. As a result, I have tried a range of tattoo aftercare. This balm is magic. Non greasy, stops the itching, keeps the ink moisturised. Simply said, it works."

 “I now only use Archeus Vital Ink Organic balm as I work on skin. It has just the right amount of glide, without being greasy.”
