FreddieBeachExposing your new tattoo design to the elements too soon can impair the healing process.  If you want to go swimming, consider where your tattoo is in the healing stages.

1. Has it been 3 weeks since you got tattooed?

2. Has your tattoo stopped shedding?

3. Have any scabs naturally healed and fallen off?

If you answered yes to the questions above, then that’s a pretty good indication it’s safe to go in the water.  If you will be exposing your new tattoo design to the sun, be sure to protect with with lotion containing SPF protection.
