Tatu-derm® was created in 2005 when our inked inventor Rusty, woke up with his back stuck to the sheets after getting a new tattoo. He was angry with the lack of protection his tattoo artist had to offer and this fueled his creative process. He began researching moist wound management and started testing ideas on himself and a few tattoo artist friends. The idea took off, he filed patents, trademarks and started our company TatuYou.
Tattoo conventions gave us the chance to bring Tatu-derm® to our early customers. Social media helped share more information with friends near and far. Once tattoo artists starting asking their suppliers for it, we began selling to tattoo supply distributors in addition to direct sales on our website. We now sell to customers in all 50 states and have over 30 distributors on 5 continents. Learn more »
