Tattoo Care Is Made Easier with Jack Black’s Ink Boost Kit

If you’re a reader of this fine publication, you’re someone with a taste for the finer things. You never drink bourbon below the middle shelf, you consume nitrate-free bacon, and if you have a tattoo, you had the good sense to pay good money for it. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from Inkmasters (not to mention a few ill-advised experiences in college that we’d rather not share), it’s that you get what you pay for when it comes to tattoos.


A quality tattoo of average size is likely to cost you $500 at a minimum. When you’ve spent that much on a beautiful piece of body art, the last thing you want is to have that investment depreciate as a result of negligence. Alas, leaving your tattoos to the vagaries of weather, age, and fate can result in blurry lines, faded colors, even whole patches of ink disappearing from the piece.

Fortunately, the same things that keep your skin looking fresh, vibrant, and ageless do the same for your tattoo: cleansing, sun protection, hydration, and general cell nourishment. Enter the Ink Boost Tattoo Care Kit from men’s skincare experts Jack Black.

Part of Jack Black’s Performance Remedy collection, the kit pairs two standby Jack Black products enriched with nourishing essentials that keep tattoos vibrant and protected. The Oil-Free Sun Guard Sunscreen prevents ink from fading or breaking up by providing broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Don’t worry, it’s both water- and sweat-resistant, which means you can still flex that sweet arm piece where it counts (the gym, the beach, the summer music festival, etc.).

The MP 10 Nourishing Oil is a concentrated blend of natural oils derived from argan, baobab, marula, and even watermelon seeds. It infuses skin with intense moisture that enhances colors and adds vibrancy.

If you’re not already caring for your skin (and you should be), make sure to at least protect the investment you’ve made in your tattoo. Combined with other signature Jack Black products, the Ink Boost Tattoo Care kit ensures that your tattoo ages as well as you do.
