Non Whitening Sun Protection?

8 posts in this topic

Hi Folks,

I am looking for sun protection that doesn't make my tattoo which is quite dark, white!

Can anyone recommend one that I can apply daily and doesn't whiten my tattoo?

I have tried loads now from super expensive to cheap and they all seem to do this..........

Thanks

I'm using a Neutrogena 45 on my ink. It goes on milky and then goes clear and stays on even in salt water and chlorine. Been using it all summer and it doesn't whiten any of my tattoos.

I got it at Target in a 2-pack for $10.50, normally goes for $12 a tube. Been using it on some very new ink which shows no deep tanning so it works.

Ok just got Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 100+.

It is the best I have tried so far, hardly any white maybe just slightly but I will continue to use this until I find something totally white free which might not exist :)

I use Aloe Gator, an invisible gel - it looks like vaseline. Best to let it dry a bit.

I've also found Alba Botanica Hawaiian Sunscreen SPF 45 to not leave a whitish haze.

    • Hey guys, ill just post a few pics here of some of the tats I have now, hope to get many more, and hope to glean a little information about tattooing from the wonderful forum!

    • Hey guys,   i just had a forearm sleeve almost a week ago inner forearm 6 days ago outter forearm 5 days ago to be specific and a total of 8hrs under the gun. Now it's swollen even my fingers are a bit too but no red no pain nothing just swollen. I've had previous tattoos and none of them swelled like that. Is this normal because it's a large piece or should i be concerned. Thanks.
