Sunblock after new tattoo

Recommended Posts

Is it ok to start applying sunblock 5 weeks after getting a tattoo?

I've read that it shouldn't be used on a fresh tattoo and want to make sure I'm not going to do any damage after 5 weeks has passed.

Thanks in advance-

Rob

I'm told it can pull out ink. At 5 weeks, mine is obviously all peeled. Second peel done as well. Some areas still look a bit dusty as you can tell there's new skin under old ready to come out, which is why I want to make sure I'm not going to do any damage by putting sunblock on now. Been over 5 weeks since its been done.

Thanks

Good to know guys! I'm extremely fair and I feel like I put sunscreen companies in business! I'm going monday to finish up a tattoo and I would have been upset if I forgot to ask and ruined my new piece of art

How early would it be considered okay to use sunblock on a new tattoo? Of course one of the milder ones without perfume and other nasty stuff.
