(Aquaphor is Vaseline/petroleum jelly based actually)
No it isn't, actually.

Petroleum jelly has petroleum products in it. Aquaphor contains petroLAtum, and less of it than petroleum jelly, which is a derivative petroleum jelly but isn't the same thing. The difference is that while they have the same texture, Aquaphor is actually absorbed into the skin slowly over a long period of time, Vaseline and petroleum jelly is not, it actually clogs the skin and evaporates from the outside down to the skin, rather than being absorbed from the skin toward the outside.

You could also avoid the two altogether and use A&D lotion, another widely accepted form of tattoo care. I've used Aquaphor for the first 1/4 of healing and plain Eucerine or Aveeno for the other 3/4 as my regular tattoo care routine.

Perhaps one of the cuter projects I've made. Dice Bag of Doom.

1/4 teaspoon sea salt, 8oz/1 cup distilled water. Make water just over bath water hot, soak for 5-10 minutes at a time, 2 times a day. Rinse/Flush off with plain warm water.

Thank you very much!

I'll make a food store run on Friday as it's payday.

what works best as far as what to put the soak in?

Hey guys!
I got my nipples pierced march 10th and I've been told they take somewhere around ~8 weeks to heal. It's been almost 4 months now, and they still get those crusties and some fluid. Though I read that that's normal even after healing for n****e piercings?
Just wondering what you guys think. I bought some n****e shields to wear once their healed, but I'm too paranoid to take them out.

I'll be seeing my piercer when I go in for touch ups on my tattoo, but I'm just looking for some opinions.

Whoever said that it'll take under 8 weeks to heal definitely was assuming they were piercing someone with Wolverine-like healing abilities. My nipples took a solid 6 months to really heal up, and every now and then they'll still ooze lymph if they get bumped too hard (I regularly catch them on my towels or shower door)

I know a lot of people like to say less than realistic healing times, thank you for telling me your experience! I'm glad to know mine aren't taking abnormally long or anything.

Start by mixing it into a clean glass mug, or a clean glass mixing bowl. From there, fill a shot glass, press it to your navel, then lay yourself back on the floor/couch/bed, watch TV for 5-10 minutes, then carefully stand up and take the glass off.

I know there's quite a few options as far as sea salt goes, so I want to make sure I look for the right stuff...

It's just plain sea salt. nothing more to it right?

Just simple, white, organic, non-iodized sea salt. The most important part is the non-iodized aspect. The package should say "non-iodized" or "not a source of iodine", something like that.

What's the dumbest question you guys have gotten, in the bedroom or out of if?

I think my favorite stupid question was a woman asked me "How do you eat with those?" indicating my Dahlia pair. She thought it was one solid bar that went through my mouth like a horse bit. I just laughed wide to show her that there was nothing in my mouth to get in the way, then walked away.

It wasn't a question, but this came from a damn doctor.

"When you need to feed your children, you'll need to take those out."

The lady was trying to convince me that my piercings were plugging my nipples and would make it impossible to feed an infant. At first I was pissed that she assumed I was going to have kids, but then I was just flabbergasted by how incorrect her information was.
