I was always told lubriderm, but it's been a few years since I've gotten a tattoo.

H2ocean, got a tattoo last year for the first time and loved that stuff, not only is it really good for your tattoo but for your skin too and it smells good. I got mine at Attomic Tattoos.

Pretty ... my tattoo guy always recommends TATTOO GOO. I love it and still use it to keep my tats looking good. I get compliments on it all the time .. can't believe that it is 5 yrs old.

Bacatracin or A&D ointment.  You went to a tattoo artist and they didn't tell you what to put on it for after care?  That right there tells me he is only about the money and doesn't care about his clients.

 Way to assume.  He did tell me what to use and not to.  He said not to use A&D or bacitracin because they don't let the tattoo breathe.  He said to use lotion, but I  couldn't remember the kind to use as I was too excited to hear him.
