The Tattman Philosophy
At Tattman we firmly believe tattoos should remain bright and clearly defined for life.
Tattoos with exceptional colour and definition in 10, 20, 30 years time are the direct result of 3 things; a highly skilled and talented tattoo artist, a healthy lifestyle, and exceptional tattoo aftercare (and we take care of the later).
Tattman Tattoo Aftercare contains a combination of essential oils, vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and micro-nutrients to feed your skin. Helping to nourish, build and maintain healthy skin; capable of displaying your ink with its original vibrancy in years to come.
1. For every tattoo to remain bright and clearly defined for longer.
2. Provide 100% natural high quality products at an affordable price.
To convert the tattoo community one-by-one in to looking after their tattoos using the purest, natural, vegan, organic tattoo aftercare.
In 1975 we were making high quality organic products for our family. Things like face moisturiser, hand cream, soap, spray for sand-fly bites, etc. Friends would ask if we made something for tattoos. They wanted fast natural healing with as little itching as possible. Or, they wanted older tattoos to look good. The main thing was they were after something free of harsh chemicals (remembering over 40 years ago nothing was available in New Zealand). We created some amazing products but it had to remain a hobby (we both worked full-time).
Fast forward 40-odd years – we retired from working, but we still made high quality skin care. In 2015 we had an itch to create a home-based business. That’s when ‘Tattman’ was born (as part of Australian Natural Collections) and the kids came on board.
Today, we sell high quality, pure, organic, plant-based natural tattoo aftercare products all over the world via this website and other online platforms. It’s a small family-business that allows us to work together.
We genuinely believe our tattoo aftercare range is the highest quality in Australia to help continually build plump, healthy skin to present tattoos on; … making your tattoos appear brighter, healthier and more clearly defined for longer.
Tattman's 10 Guiding Principles
When creating the best tattoo aftercare that we are willing to stand behind, we consider the following
Organic – Only natures finest, chemical-free ingredients.
Natural - Pure, premium, plant-based ingredients.
Fragrance free – No irritation.
Vegan – Healthy options and not an animal product in sight!
Hypoallergenic – Naturally safe for sensitive skin.
Lanolin free – No blocked pores!
Petroleum free – Skin breathes with less risk of infection.
Alcohol free – No dry, irritated skin.
No animal testing – We love our animals!
100% Australian-made – ‘Ridgy-didge’
(Oxford dictionary: Genuine, original, all good).
All Tattman products are hand-made in Tasmania from 100% Australian ingredients.
Tasmania has many boutique growers and suppliers specializing in the purest, highest quality ingredients available. These superior ingredients are produced in arguably the purest air in the world, in the planet’s oldest, richest soil.
Some facts to back that up:
Tasmania’s prevailing winds come from the west and the nearest land in that direction is two thirds of the way around the world. Sitting on the edge of the cliffs on the North West coast of Tasmania is the ‘Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station’. There, they have been sampling air straight from the Southern Ocean for the past 40 years. It is apparently the purest air in the world, used as the benchmark for gauging the health of the planet’s air. Additionally, Tasmania is the oldest part of ‘Gondwana’ (approximately 180 million years); which explains why our soil is so dark, rich and fertile for making high quality ingredients. This is why we think we have the best tattoo products on the market because the raw ingredients are exceptionally good!
If our Tasmanian producers can't supply, then we source from trusted Australian producers on the mainland.
