So I got a new tattoo yesterday and its doing great so far. I'm just wondering how long to wait before applying sunscreen/sunblock? I know its not good for it to be in the sun much especially while healing.
This is what it looks like!
Its on the back of my left shoulder.
Don't put sunblock on a new or fresh tattoo - follow your artist's aftercare instructions and keep your tattoo covered or shaded with clothing for the first few weeks. You can use sunblock once your tattoo has finished peeling and has grown it's first protective layer of skin.
