Coppertone Tattoo Guard (sunscreen)

No experience, but this is different than regular sunscreen how exactly? I do like that it is "portable" though because I've always had trouble lugging around tubes or bottles of sunscreen.

Wait, I don't have to buy sunscreen in a 55 gallon drum anymore? The wonders never cease.

The best sun screen i have found that works great with tattoos is: Age Shield™ Face Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 110.

Age Shield

This product doesn't let the skin I put it on burn at all, even if I stay all day in the sun. Id recommend it for tattoo lovers!

I have sensitive skin so I generally try to gravitate to something more mild. Also note that baby sunscreen generally is pretty mild with more natural ingredients and have high SPF ratings that block out UVA and UVB rays. I've done a bunch of personal research and there's concern among many circles (not just tattoo collectors) that certain chemicals in high SPF sunscreen may affect hormones after long term use.

I stopped by the local Bed Bath and Beyond yesterday while running errands. Saw the Coppertone Tattoo sunscreen and compared it to several different labeled sunscreens in the Coppertone line. Pretty much the same active ingredients at the same percentages. Just marketing and packaging changes.

I bought some of the Coppertone tattoo blend and did a little research on it.

it is similar in chemical makeup to Coppertone "sensitive skin/faces" SPF50 sunscreen,it has Zinc Oxide,and it has no Oxybenzone,which makes it a little different & better for tattooed skin than most sunscreens.

    • Hi guys, so I recently got a cover up and it's a little over 2 weeks in the healing process. I'm finally starting to like it, but it doesn't fully cover up my old tattoo! There are hints of the old tattoo still showing through (where the arrows in the picture point to the faint black curved line). Is there any way to fix this and cover this part up better? Can I just go back for a touch up and maybe have the tattoo artist go over it one more time with some shading and yellow ink? Thanks for the advice.
    • There's nothing to fix on that tattoo. It's still healing. Tattoos look weird when they are healing. A lot of people say to give it 6 weeks to heal and then judge, but I'd given it longer, at least three months. It shouldn't be shiny or bumpy then.  Secondly, a tattoo is not a sticker. No tattoo is perfect. Tattoos do not heal exactly the way they looked when they were first done. Skin is a living canvas and that means lines often spread or color migrates. It would be ridiculous to go back to your artist to get that "fixed." If you can't live with minor imperfections, then tattoos aren't for you. 
    • Tattoos in general fade with time. Trying to do anything to it while maintaining the original design is going to make a mess of it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
