Oops. waht do you do if your tattoo gets sunburned?

Recommended Posts

My tattoo got burned at the pool yesterday. It's not too awful since I did use sunscreen, I guess I just didn't reapply often enough. This has never happened to me before as I'm rarely out in the sun. Anybody do anything special to take care of their tattoos after a sunburn? I can't remember ever hearing anything about it and I was curious.

If it's a tattoo that you've had for a bit and it totally healed I don't think it will cause a problem. I haven't had a real sun burn in years, but when my skin gets red, like what happens if you come in just before you really burn, it doesn't do anything to my tattoos. Tattoos do fade in the sun thought, so sunscreen is usually recommended even if you don't normally burn.
