Sunscreen On A New Tattoo

Moisturizing cream

Most of us either have a tattoo or have at one point thought of getting one. Tattoos are a beautiful form of art expression on your body and when done right can look amazing. The quality of your tattoo is highly dependent on the artist who does it. A great artist will make you a great quality and long lasting tattoo. However, as much as an artist may be great at what he does, how long your tattoo lasts looking as good as new purely depends on how well you protect it. There are a number of things that may cause tattoo fading.

Tattoo fading
Tattoos often fade as an effect of UV rays from the sun. Most people with tattoos will testify feeling a tingly uncomfortable sensation when they left their tattoo directly facing the sun when fresh. This is mainly because the tattoo is a raw sensitive wound when new and UV light does not favor the tattoo or its healing process. Though not recommended for the first few days after getting the tattoo, the only way to protect and keep the quality of your tattoo over a long time is the use of sunscreen.

Why sunscreen
Sunscreen works to prevent UV rays from getting onto your skin. This allows your skin to stay safe at all times when sunscreen is applied. Application of sunscreen comes in handy especially if you may want to tan in the sun. Most people who go out in the sun have their tattoos fading after some time. Sunscreen prevents such effects by preventing UV rays from getting onto the tattoo. This is especially the case when swimming where UV rays exposure may be higher.
