Coppertone Tattoo Guard (sunscreen)

Recommended Posts

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.

My wife use to use a similar product when she used to fake tan. She doesn't have that many tattoos so the stick works well to just protect tattoos. But thankfully she stopped fake tanning a couple years ago.

I use this Neutrogena 45 product I get at Target, 2 tubes for around $12. It works really well and stays on even in salt water. I will try the Coppertone product when I run out of the Neutrogena.

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.

    • Oh, for sure. 😂
    • Everyone likes what they like, but true Japanese tattooing probably has had more influence on modern tattooing than anything else... American traditional a close second.  Janky kanji is not what it's about.
    • Look, tattoos are an adult thing.  Be an adult, decide what YOU think and what YOU think should be done about it and stop looking for someone to agree with you. You might not post to this site again, but you know you'll lurk and think pissy things about all of us, lol.
