Ankle tattoo under uniform

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I got an ankle tattoo yesterday, tomorrow I go back to work and my uniform consists of skinnyjeans and boots. Should I wrap it to avoid the friction of the jeans fabric damaging my tattoo?

I know, I asked for a solution to that problem.

well,yes,wrapping it will help,put on something like Aquafor or cocoa butter under saran.

next time ,something like these dermal films below will solve that problem if you buy it before,I get mine online,

unless you can find it locally.

like Saniderm or tegaderm , you should be able to find Tegaderm at walgreens,target,or CVS

these products are great stuff for healing tattoos IMO,I have used them for a few years now with great success.   

you leave it on a tattoo for a few days,you can shower and sleep with it on and no hassle.

I just ordered some saniderm. It looks like it fits pretty securely. Better than I was thinking it would. Are the edges sticky or does it just adhere to itself or???

it's self adhesive,there is a peel off layer and trust me,it sticks really well,and I already had referenced a thread here at LST in my previous post in this thread,

    • I just wanna say this,I have many many tattoos and many years of getting tattooed and by many artists,I started when I was about 25 and I am 59 now, I am still getting tattoos, and ,well,I still get tattoo remorse,regret,etc,etc,what ever the F*** you want to call it,to this day !   it goes away,maybe takes a month,maybe takes a week,once the pain of the $600 or $1500 I just spent goes away,I am thinking of my next tattoo, and all is good in my world again.
    • Do you mind me asking, how long did it take you to get past the serious regret phase? @Carmelita
    • You are right, its NOT healthy. Don't hate me for saying this but why does it have to have some deep meaning? From what I see, it looks cool. I would invite you to consider exploring other areas of your world that may not be aligned...is this misdirected frustration at someone/something else? I would offer that a bunch of us have tattoos that break "rules". But hey, if you don't like it, you don't like it. It's not a bad tattoo though!
