After 20 years of tattoo shops, bars, houses of ill repute, back alleys, and first class lounges from Waikiki to Manila, one thing was always on my mind. A better, quicker, faster...........Way to help heal a new tattoo. 17 years in the making- consulting with snake oil salesmen and witch doctors, from coast to coast, border to border, and in between- I've hit it- I've got what ya need.......The final formula, tested, approved. It WORKS. Believe me, as anyone who's done business with me can and will attest, from Seaside to London- I won't sell or endorse junk, put up with any shit, or lie to you. Get Some!

ORGANIC 2½ oz. ALL NATURAL, herbal curative Pigment Protector’s unique formula is designed to moisturize and assist the natural healing process of your skin by providing the essential nutrients and vitamins to help minimize scabbing and support the preservation quality and appearance of your new tattoo.

When BIG Josh’s Pigment Protector’s amazing 100% natural salve is applied it starts working immediately, penetrating your cells to help soothe your new tattoo and help prevent itching and peeling. Remedy ingredients have been added to help safeguard your tattoo against airborne bacteria and contribute moisture which helps to promote rapid and beneficial mending, keeping colors vibrant and fresh without clogging pores while quickly penetrating skin to provide long lasting protection. The non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and will not stain your clothes or leave any greasy residue.

BIG JOSH'S Pigment Protector Salve comes in a personal tin which is great for travel and is recyclable or better yet great for storing small items! The screw on lid guards your Pigment Protector Salve from the elements, so no worries about it falling open in your purse, pocket, backpack, or luggage making a big mess because this tin possess a continuously threaded lid for an excellent grip and a tight seal. The twist-off top and the little ridges around it make it easy to unscrew and shut tightly, yet is effortless to open even if your hands are wet and/or slippery.

REVIEW 3-15-2015: This stuff is pretty amazing. I got a large 6.5 hour piece on the back of my thigh and decided I wanted to go all natural and cruelty free in my healing products. After extensive searching, I settled on this one mainly for the arnica oil which is really what set it apart from other all natural tattoo salves. My tattoo has healed very fast and beautifully. This little can is easy to toss in your purse, and smells fantastic. It's easy to grab a bit out and there was plenty even for my large piece and pretty obsessive application. It didn't smear and stain my clothes and sheets and didn't cause anything to stick to my tattoo either. Highly recommended.
