A few months ago out of sheer desperation, I discovered that Punkin Butt teething oil soothes itchy and irritated tattoos. I have a large 10 month old tattoo on my right forearm that flares up at randomly and itches and burns something awful. I've tried many different products to soothe the itching - coconut oil, plain body lotion and vitamin A&D ointment to name a few. They would take away some of the itching but not the burning. I considered using Orajel for it's numbing power but I knew I also needed something that will moisturize as well.
I reached for my baby's Punkin Butt Teething oil, smoothed on a thin layer and it was instant relief!
Here's another time Punkin Butt Teething oil has come to the rescue:
It was was a very cold day and the icy temperatures zapped all of the moisture out of our East Texas home. My hands became ridiculously dry and began to flake. The tops of my hands were like sandpaper and I was scratching them raw. So now, not only where they itchy, they hurt as well. Nothing I had on hand would sooth them and after days of irritation I remembered how the teething oil helped me with my tattoo. I applied the oil on the tops of my hands and hallelujah sweet alleviation.
By the way, Punkin Butt Teething Oil is without a doubt, one of the BEST teething products in the world. I'm not getting paid to say that either! I mean it!

FIY: Why do old tattoos itch anyway?
If you're battling an itchy old tattoo that has long since healed I'm sure you're wondering what's up with that. Check out this article HERE for possible answers.
NOTE: I'm not sure how the oil will affect healing and color retention so I wouldn't recommend using teething oil on a fresh, still healing tattoo without first consulting a professional tattoo artist.
