Vital Ink Tattoo Conditioning Oil
This oil and the Vital Ink tattoo balm share the same back story. A few years ago Stefan Sinclair of Two Hands Tattoo in Auckland asked me if I could make an organic tattoo oil. I had a bit of a play about with herbs renowned for their anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, antiseptic, antibacterial and nourishing properties.
Then a woman came to me wanting something natural to heal the tattoo she had done following a breast reconstruction after a mastectomy. She saw the tattoo as a way of taking back her own body and ‘writing over the cancer’ – ink became a form of empowerment.
Around this same time my mother was going through cancer treatment and the morphine was making her skin very itchy.
It was the combination of these three requests for something natural, healing and soothing that led to the Archeus Vital Ink products.
It was a thrilling moment when this oil was selected as a finalist for Best New Natural Product for the 2015 Pure Beauty Awards in the UK. The awards were to recognise ‘the most exciting, innovative and efficacious new products release globally’ (their words not mine!).
