“Sunscreen and tattoos should go hand in hand. but most people forget and then quickly watch their tattoos fade. Seeing it happen to my clients and watching my work fade, I wanted to provide something effective and convenient;  clients would not use sunscreen because they ‘didn’t want sticky hands’.” shares Nicolette ‘Nic’ Ferreira, Ink Defense Pro-team artist and owner of Back40 Tattoos in Molalla, Oregon

“I went on a challenge to find the right sunscreen product for my clients. Using myself as a guinea pig, I realized many of the products including baby and sport sunscreens failed to work; chemicals were harsh, leaving me with rashes or breakouts.  

I discovered Ink Defense all-natural Sunscreen Stick SPF30+. I tried it out, while fishing; no bumps, no pimples, no burn, and no sticky hands. It is now the only SPF product we offer at my shop.”
