Hey! Got some advice?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm Miguel and I live in Portugal. To be honest I mostly joined for advice in this matter..

I've wanted a tattoo for a while now, and only now I've got some money to use in it.

I've pretty much decided I'm getting a wolf claw right under my collarbone, and I'm so into it that I wanna do it right now.

The thing is, it's summer, and on the soon I'm going on a trip which will pretty much 'make me' go on the beach and get sun for a week.

My birthday is coming soon so it would be pretty much a gift to myself :p

I know it's not recommended to do a tattoo in summertime, but my question is, is there any chance I can still get it and not 'damage' it?

I'd be getting it in 2 days and pretty much be super careful in the aftercare, try to do the best I could so it would heal the fastest. So when I'd go in the trip it would have been 15days since I made it (that's when I would start having long exposure to the sun for a week). So I'd apply that mineral sunblock everytime I'd go to the beach (which is pretty much a barrier to the sun, like having clothes on I think..), etc..

So I really want to get it now, but I don't know if it's still possible to do so without "damaging" it, even though I'd follow all the rules of the after care.. What you guys think? Any advice?

Not really no, you are probably going to damage it. It's not worth the risk (damaging a tattoo you will wear to the grave) with the reward (getting the tattoo a few weeks earlier so you have it for your holiday). Have patience.

    • 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.
