Non Whitening Sun Protection?

Recommended Posts

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 :)

    • Yes, blowouts can happen no matter how skilled the artist. The thinner and more delicate the skin, the greater the chance of a blowout.
    • Re-read the response. You don't know what it's going to look like until it heals. 4-6 weeks. There is no point in worrying until then. There is NOTHING you can do. EVERYONE'S tattoo looks like shit while it's healing and peeling.  Tattoos are not perfect. There is NO tattoo that you can't find something wrong with if you look hard enough. If you can't get past the perfectionist, I wouldn't get any more tattoos because you'll A) make yourself miserable obsessing over the tattoo or B) completely ruin the tattoo trying to "fix" it. You have a nice tattoo there, quit ruining it for yourself and just enjoy it.
    • Thanks for the reply. How do you think it looks from an outsider point of view? I felt as if the rose had maybe too much shading, but it could end up nice with highlights and once it's all finished. I'm just very particular and a perfectionist. Having that much black is kind of like WOW and I'm not really used to it haha. Was expecting something more subtle.

      Hey guys,
      I'll add a pic later in the thread but I recently got a bicep tattoo, 3 days ago, decent size (a cover-up) and my bi-cep is the size of a ham. I had a similar experience with my forearm. Anyone else experience this?

      Hey everyone. I'm just wondering if anyone knows how tattoos with no black in them look after a few years. I know it's generally frowned upon, but if it's a darker color (blue for example) would it last? Something like the picture I attached. I have no intention of getting anything like this by the way, I'm just curious as to how they hold up long term.

      Hi everyone. So I've been trying to think of stufff i could add around my moth tattoo. I don't like all the empty space around it, but due to the shape of it I can't think of anything that would fit well. My first idea was roses, but if anyone has any suggestions they'd be much appreciated.
