Why Using Sunscreen Is Important For Your Tattoo

Table of Contents

Getting a tattoo is an exhilarating experience. You may have been considering the design for some time, thinking about the perfect location or building up the courage or gumption to actually make it happen. Once you’re permanently inked and thrilled with the results however, that’s not quite the end. Tattoo aftercare is an incredibly crucial part of getting a tattoo. It can be the difference between a lasting work of art or a potential cover up later. Aftercare is also a lifetime responsibility, not just reserved for the immediate weeks after the application. Once your tattoo has completely healed, there are certain things that should be done to ensure that your tattoo remains the vibrant beauty you intended it to be.

If you live in a tropical or sunny climate, you may already be aware of the importance of sunscreen for daily use for health reasons. When you have a tattoo, the importance is compounded. Tattoos will fade over time but this can be slowed or prevented by using sunscreen daily, or minimally when outdoors for an extended period of time. In addition to fading tattoos, the sun has the potential to cause cancer, skin discoloring, wrinkling and sagging.

To combat the damaging rays of the sun, H2Ocean’s Surfers Choice SPF 50 spray was specially designed for ultimate sun and tattoo protection. The anti-aging, non-scented dri-mist formula dries in 30 seconds with no oily residue, is water resistant and provides over 80 minutes of total block from the harmful rays of the sun. The addition of Tattoo Protek helps to shield your ink from damaging UV rays and aloe vera helps to keep your skin and tattoo hydrated. Safe for children and reefs, the 360 degree sprayer also makes it easier than ever to use.

Both UVA and UVB rays are emitted from the sun’s rays and affect the skin in different ways. UVA rays have longer lasting effects and penetrate deeper into skin. They are mostly responsible for the fading of tattoos, wrinkling and sagging. UVB rays affect the top layers of skin and are the cause of sunburn. Neither of these are beneficial for maintaining a tattoo and proper and regular makes a major difference in the appearance of your tattoo over time.

Whether your tattoo is new or old, the sun should be considered in your aftercare routine. It is advised to avoid sunscreen and stay out of the sun with a new tattoo until it has fully healed. A tattoo is an open wound and ingredients in sunscreen can irritate it while healing. Once your tattoo has completely healed, regular use of sunscreen, especially when outdoors, can help to keep your tattoo in pristine condition and keep its appearance for a much longer time.
