IKONIK Tattoo Care Products

IKONIK Epik cream

Pain, itchiness, flaking, and irritation are common struggles tattoo artists and their clients face once the session is done and the skin starts to heal. Regardless of the skincare products we’ve tried, Good Vibrations Ink struggled to find a solution that can address these issues, contain top-tier ingredients and preserve the artist’s work. Whether you’re a newbie or a pro, one thing is certain: you want your tattoo to be a work of art and the process to be as comfortable as possible.

In response to these ongoing challenges, a group of passionate artists and individuals took matters into their own hands. They made a mission to develop a skincare line specifically tailored for tattoo artists and enthusiasts. They recognized the need for products that could effectively alleviate pain, combat itchiness, prevent flaking, and minimize irritation, all while ensuring that the vibrant colors and intricate details of tattoos are preserved.

With relentless dedication, they meticulously formulated a range of skincare products under the IKONIK line. From pre-tattoo skin preparation to post-tattoo recovery, and even during the tattoo session, IKONIK products are engineered to make your tattoo experience easy and pain-free and keep your skin in its best shape.

What is IKONIK?

Made for artists by artists, the IKONIK line covers every aspect of tattoo skincare, from the initial stages to the final touches, and cares for the skin for years to come. Using their combined tattoo and skin care backgrounds, these artists created products with top-tier ingredients renowned for their beneficial properties. The goal is to provide a solution that prioritizes the skin’s health and contributes to tattoos’ longevity and vibrancy.

Thanks to their commitment to excellence, the IKONIK line is becoming a trusted companion for tattoo artists and their clients worldwide. Artists and their clients can rely on these specialized products to nourish their skin, relieve discomfort, and ensure their tattoos remain visually striking.

When and how do you use IKONIK products?

IKONIK presents a complete range of products that tackle every aspect of the tattoo process. From upholding hygiene standards to delivering pain relief and ensuring effective aftercare, IKONIK has left no stone unturned in creating a comprehensive line of tattoo skincare products.

Before you get your tattoo

Anticipation and anxiety can increase your sensitivity to pain from a new tattoo. To combat this, IKONIK recommends using Tonik Cream to numb the area and reduce pain. Tonik Cream uses a blend of peptides (short chains of amino acids), pain blockers and nerve inhibitors to reduce pain signals from the tattoo area to the brain. It numbs the skin within 60-120 minutes of application, helping make long (and short) sessions more comfortable. It can be used with numbing sprays during your session to lower pain sensitivity and increase the numbing potency.

Stoik Spray can be used throughout the tattoo session and your aftercare routine for pain relief and inflammation. Particularly useful on sensitive areas like the back of the hands or the sternum, Stoik Spray takes just 90 seconds to work, allowing a seamless tattoo session.

During the session

During the session, the tattoo stencil must remain stationary and visible for the artist so the pen can glide smoothly across the skin. IKONIK offers Statik Gel to securely hold the stencil ink in place and hydrate the skin to elevate the design’s visual appeal.At Good Vibrations Ink, we use Statik Gel and Optik Glide together to prevent ink from becoming hazy or smudged during tattoo sessions.

Maintaining clean and hydrated skin is crucial for the tattoo session and aftercare routine. IKONIK’s Cosmik Soap uses aloe vera and arnica extracts to help prevent skin irritation and promote healing. These ingredients, combined with antimicrobial agents and rich minerals, provide a gentle and soothing cleanser that supports healing. Use Cosmik Soap in your aftercare routine with warm water to open pores, and gently remove ink and dried plasma.


Aftercare is the most important factor in the longevity and vibrancy of your tattoo.

Our artists have seen the long-lasting effects of improper aftercare and its impact on how tattoos look. Faded ink, scarring, and distortion are common signs of improper aftercare. Part of any successful aftercare routine is keeping your new tattoo clean and moisturized. We recommend using Epik Cream, made from plant-based moisturizers, hyaluronic acids, and shea butter to nourish and repair the skin.

These ingredients help nourish and moisturize the skin, preventing dryness and flakiness during healing. Hyaluronic acid, in particular, is known for retaining moisture and promoting skin hydration. The healthier your skin is, the more your tattoo will stay looking fresh and vibrant.

You can apply Epik Cream daily to stimulate stem cell reconstruction, repair skin damage, and decrease the time it takes for your skin to heal. We’ve seen improved skin conditions within three days of continued use and reviews from clients who’ve had reduced discomfort and irritation commonly associated with the healing process.
