How to Take Care of Your Tattoo in the Summer

Summer is the time when most of us enjoy the sun and outdoor activities. However, if you have tattoos, exposure to the sun can damage them. Proper care of your tattoo during the summer is important to maintain the vibrancy and detail of the design. Don’t forget to renew your sunscreen regularly and avoid overexposure to the sun. So you can enjoy your summer activities without worrying about your tattoo. In addition, it is important to choose high quality products for your tattoo treatment. Consistency in care and the use of the right products will ensure that your tattoo remains impressive and healthy.

Why the Sun is Dangerous for Tattoos

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can cause significant damage to your tattoo. UV rays can fade colors and damage your skin, making the tattoo more vulnerable to complications. In addition, if your tattoo is recent, exposure to the sun can slow down the healing process and cause blisters or infections.

Tips for Protecting Your Tattoo from the Sun

  • If your tattoo is new, avoid sun exposure for the first 2-3 weeks. The new tattoo is like an open wound and is very vulnerable to UV rays.
  • When your tattoo has fully healed, use a sunscreen with a high SPF (SPF 30 or higher). You can use TATOO SUNSCREEN, which offers strong sun protection and is specially formulated for tattoos. Apply the sunscreen at least 15-30 minutes before going out in the sun and repeat every two hours or after swimming or sweating.
  • If possible, cover your tattoo with clothing for extra protection. A lightweight, long-sleeved shirt or hat can protect your tattoo from direct sun exposure.
  • Keep your skin moisturized by using a good moisturizer. AFTER INK COLOR CREAM RED is ideal for moisturizing after sun exposure, helping to maintain the vibrancy of your tattoo colors.
  • Avoid tanning beds. Tanning bed lamps emit UV rays that can damage your tattoo in the same way as the sun. Avoid tanning beds to keep your tattoo in good condition.

Extra Tips for Caring for Your Tattoo in the Summer

  • Excessive heat can cause sweating, which can affect your tattoo, especially if it is new. Try to stay in shady and cool places as long as possible.
  • Do not scratch your Tattoo. If your tattoo is recent, you may feel itchy as it heals. Do not scratch the tattoo, as this can damage the design and increase the risk of infection.
  • If your tattoo is new, avoid swimming for at least two weeks after the tattoo. Chlorine in swimming pools and bacteria in the sea can contaminate it.
