SUMMER TIP: HAVE YOU BEEN PROUDLY SPORTING A TATTOO FOR THE PAST FEW DAYS AND CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW IT OFF AT THE BEACH? FORGET ! TATTOOS AND SUN DON’T MIX, ESPECIALLY IF YOUR TATTOO IS RECENT.
If your skin is a magnificent canvas that readily submits to bodily modifications, we must not forget that it is above all an organ with a vital function, and that therefore, it must be protected.
In order to optimize healing and avoid changes of all kinds to your tattoo (ink which sparks, which becomes pale, etc.) or even annoying reactions during this phase (itching, burning, etc.) you must respect the “post- tattoo = healing = taking care of your work of art ”to the letter.
And among the elementary rules to which it is absolutely necessary to comply is a sacred chapter concerning exposure to the sun. And yeah, had to get a tattoo at the start of the school year!
