During the two weeks that your tattoo is healing, stay away from pools, the ocean, hot tubs and most importantly, the sun. The healing tattoo should not be exposed to the sun at all. You are allowed to shower though.
After the healing process is completed, make sure that you always cover your tattoo with a good sun block ( Try to use at least SPF of 30 that provides both UVA and UVB protection, and it does not matter if you choose a cheaper brand, they are all the same) as exposure to the sun is the major cause of tattoo fading.
Here are a few tips to remember:
- Always make sure that your hands are clean when tending to your healing tattoo.
- Make sure that the towels you use, are clean
- Make sure that your clothes that will be touching your tattoo, is clean and loose.
- Change your bedding every two to three days during the healing process.
