You can get tattooed at any time of the year. It is true that there are things to keep in mind before and after getting a tattoo in order to guarantee the best outcome, especially when you decide to get a tattoo during the summer season.
BEFORE GETTING A TATTOO:
In order to be able to do your tattoo, the skin must be healthy and in a good condition; the slightest sun burn will make it imposible to do the tattoo. Even if your skin is slightly burned, red/pink, hot to the touch, or shows any other sign of having been exposed to the sun during the days prior to your appointment.
If you have booked your tattoo appointment during the summer months be sure to use highly protective sunscreen (50+) on the area where you want to get tattooed. It is even better to avoid exposing that area of the body to the sun altogether and to cover the skin with clothing to protect it from the sun. To avoid the skin you want to tattooed getting burned, we advise you to protect it from the sun for at least a week before your tattoo appointment.
AFTER GETTING THE TATTOO:
To guarantee the best result it is very important that you follow the instructions to heal your new tattoo. During the first 2/3 weeks after tattooing you should keep the tattoo out of the sun, sea water, swimming pool, lakes, rivers, etc. In order to enjoy your vacation to the fullest, we recommend that you contact us to make your appointment in advance and plan it for the last days of your vacation.
This way you will be able enjoy your vacation, take good care of your skin before and after your tattoo appointment and return home with a unique souvenir to last a lifetime.
