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.

    • Welcome.  Read the FAQ, this isn't the place if you want to get into tattooing, and in any case, pretty much no tattooers post here anymore.  Anyway, let's see the tattoos you have on you.
    • First off, a bit about myself.  I'm 26, looking to get into tattooing.  I've been studying art seriously for a bit over a year now.  Messed around for a few years before that, learning how to draw portraits and basically draw what I see,  but with no real consistent study or discipline.  I'm looking to supplement my course load with some tattooing specifics so I'm not a complete noob when I start getting out there.    I have a shitty machine (never going to use it, don't worry) that I've played around with while reading a book to get familiar with the machine.  Did a bit of study on felt, but I don't want to learn any bad habits so for the time being I'm just focusing on the art side of it.   So that brings me here. I belong to another art community and it's incredibly helpful to have others critique work and help you grow as an artist, while pointing you towards valuable information when needed, but it's not related to tattoos at all.   Haven't spent much time looking around yet so I'm unsure if this is a good forum to find what I'm looking for,  maybe someone will be able to point me there. This was just spurred on after spending a couple hours on another piece and getting a little tired of that path.  Drawing tattoos seems fresh and exciting.  Cheers  
    • I love Dr Woo's ornamental dagger. Incredibly delicate and fine line work. No idea about longevity though...
