Our mission is to provide a tattoo’s before and aftercare line of products that works for everyone…the person that’s preparing for a tattoo, the artist that’s artfully creating the tattoo and the body that carries this beautiful artwork around for a lifetime. We will deliver a product that contains natural and organic ingredients that you can trust and that you’ll love to use for the life of your tattoos. We will build our brand on the core values of customer service and care, the highest standards of quality, honesty and integrity and will ensure that all our customers are given first class service, whether they visit us online, at a pop-up event or through one of our wholesale customers.
Angela, Tatted UPkeep’s founder, got her first tattoo at the sweet age of 18…a little tiny thing on her foot. Fast forward to the present and she now has many across her body including an entire color back piece and a beautiful Ganesha sleeve (thanks Cassie E!). It’s true that old saying, ‘once you get one, you will want more!’ As a matter of a fact, 46% of all Americans have at least one tattoo, and 50% of those people are under the age of 40. Of those Americans who have tattoos, 70% have more than one tattoo and 20% have more than five.
It seems pretty obvious in hindsight, that people with tattoos have very unique skincare needs, so Angela decided to launch a skincare company for that audience. We’ve created a product that’s an alternative to synthetically made, mass-produced products that tend to be more harmful to tattoos than good.
Yes, Tatted UPkeep is new to the tattoo industry of aftercare products, but Angela has been around the block with respect to creating natural skincare – many of you may have already tried Body Souffle Butter by Gritz n Glitz for your tattoos (GnG is Angela’s first successful, all-natural bath and body products company). We also offer that version here at Tatted UPkeep as Tattoo Buttercream.
In short, we’re building a brand to be a one stop shop in tattoo before, during and aftercare — going way beyond skincare.
