Default What cream can i put on my tattoo long term

I had a large colour tattoo done in december and its already starting to look a bit dull. I followed all the correct aftercare, maybe its just how its healed? Do any of you guys use a cream daily to keep your tattoo looking fresh? Thank you

Lush Elbow Grease for me. Seems to keep everything bright and very well moisturised

100% raw and unrefined shea butter, period...by far the best product to use. It is a bit solid to start with, but it melts with hand warmth pretty quickly. Nothing moisturizes like it! All natural, 1 ingredient, also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties as well (and many many other benefits, Google it). You can buy a big block online for dirt cheap compared to other "tattoo" labeled creams.

Also good quality sunblock can't be forgotten, sun is the number one tattoo fader, aside from lasers...

on a side note, shea butter even provides SPF 6 protection
