Tattoo questions! Do you sell second skin? The few times I’ve used it I’ve had so weird skin reactions. Also is there any way to buy green soap if you’re not a tattooer ?

1. Second Skin
I’ve never used Second Skin and I don’t sell it. I also don’t recommend it because when I looked into it, it’s a cheap knockoff of Saniderm. Saniderm is a company that’s been around longer and was originally an offshoot of a wound care company, which tested and perfected its products in a professional setting. I haven’t heard about bad experiences with Second Skin, but I take issue with a company taking someone else’s idea instead of doing the research and work themselves.

You might have reactions to Saniderm too. Everybody is allergic to something. But so far we’ve been using and selling it for I think a year and a half and NO ONE has had an allergic reaction to it. My guys use it on almost all their customers and I use it every time I get a tattoo.

If you’d rather use lotion/ointment, there are tons of products out there for aftercare. H2Ocean is a company I always recommend, but I personally haven’t been able to use them since they went Vegan. I’m allergic to a lot of natural products, so their new “all natural” ingredients gave me hives, swelling, and rashes. Same thing with Hustle Butter. They’re great products that work for a lot of people, but I can’t use natural stuff myself.

My favorite, if I’m not using Saniderm, is Tattoo Goo. I’ve never had anybody complain of an allergic reaction, my skin is fine with it, and it also smells good 😀

We’ve also been experimenting with CBD oil of late and it’s producing great results. Inkeeze recently came out with CBD Glide, and as soon as my guys started using it, they saw less swelling and redness while tattooing and a faster healing time.

2. Is there any way to buy green soap if you’re not a tattooer?
Of course you can! Amazon sells it. I just looked and their prices aren’t that bad. Walmart and a few other stores I checked online also sell it. Search for “green soap tincture” and you should find it.

But PLEASE be aware that green soap is a concentrate, so you’ll need to dilute it, preferably with distilled water. Depending on your skin sensitivity, you’ll use 1 part green soap to anywhere from 4-10 parts distilled water.

For example 1 cup green soap to 10 cups distilled water combined in a bottle. My guys use a 1:10 ratio, but it’s a personal preference thing and sometimes artists like it stronger. The more you dilute it, the less it’ll irritate your skin.

My mom loves the stuff so much she keeps it in the house all the time. I bring her home a gallon every once in a while. It’s great for EVERYTHING. Seriously, look at Cosco’s Green Soap website. Like regular castile soap, there’s TONS of uses!

Best of all it smells like a brand new tattoo!!

I had a guy buy a $400 tattoo machine from me last week. I told him how to use it, and at the time I was a little leery because he was asking questions abut it that a tattoo artist should already know.

May-May!! What do you do?? Your job sounds so cool??

Oh shoulda scrolled down to read more 😔😔😔

Hehe, that’s okay 😀

I own a shop that’s half tattoo shop and half tattoo/piercing supply shop. I also sell body jewelry. I’m not an artist myself, but I do pierce.

Oh cool so you get to hang around fun and artistic people like yourself all day??

Totes jelly 🍓🍓🍓

Actually all the tattoo’rs in town come to my bar soooo not too dif! Best tippers ever tho!!

(🍓🍓🍓 = strawberry jelly)

I don’t really consider myself artistic. I can write and I can Photoshop stuff, but I can’t really art. It’s obvious on a daily basis their brains work differently than mine. I have business sense and I like tattoos/piercing, so that’s why I opened the shop.

It IS nice being around artistic people. They’re a lot more emotional and impulsive than I’d be able to handle 24/7, but they’re very passionate, caring, and interesting 🙂

And yes, tattoo artists are awesome tippers, especially if you treat them well. They even tip me if I spend an extended period of time selling them stuff because they have a big order, ask a lot of questions, or want to look at lots of different stuff. They’re very visual, so instead of just telling them about something, they want to see it and touch it 😀

Arg, I hate when I leave my plugs out for too long (more than 24 hours) and when I put them back in it’s a bit of a stretch and my earlobes get all warm and they itch a little.

I take them out to give my ears a chance to breathe, but then forget to put them back in.

Kinda envious I miss having plugs/ pierced ears. But I got a keloid after taking mine out and had to have it removed. No piercing ever again.

I’ll just double up on tattoos 😋😋😋

Aww, that sucks! But yes, I concur on the tattoos *nod nod*

One of my favorite things about submissives and/or ABs is the contrast between everyday life and playtime.  Writing/reading about it or even seeing it in a practical application never fails to give me feels.

A businessman/woman, competent and even intimidating during the day, someone who’s successful and has employees/co-workers who might even think they’re too harsh, but they also don’t doubt that person’s leadership ability. Or even just someone who holds down their mundane 9-5 job and adults all day long.

Transition to home or play life, the dom/domme comes in, and it’s almost like a switch gets flipped. The sub/AB melts for their dom/domme/daddy/mommy. If they’re comfortable, they let themselves go and fall into that space so hard and it’s so beautiful. It’s a completely different person, but at the same time it’s not.

Sometimes I forget to breathe when I see it happening <3

Some of us are that way all the time lol.

Hi May-May!!!

Nah, you may be adorable all the time, but you do some adulting too, right? You mentioned a bar. Everybody has to do adulting sometimes even if it sucks.

Hi, Crash 🙂
