If you’re headed to the Seattle Tattoo Expo next weekend or are just planning some new ink, pick up Whiskey Ink & Lace’s Tattoo Salve before you go under the needle.

The Seattle company’s founder, Andi Murphy, created the all-natural, petroleum-free formula for herself after other tattoo-care products she tried didn’t work well or made her break out.

The light, soothing salve — with a base of organic coconut oil and castor oil — keeps the skin moisturized while allowing it to breathe as it heals. Its antibacterial properties also make it great for treating cuts and sunburns.
