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,

    • looks normal to me, it will take at least 6 weeks to heal and more to settle in.
    • hi just got this two weeks ago wondering if it’s healing normal or does it look weird 
    • I have a date set to get this design on my forearm. I’ve heard that fine lines and pointillism can sometimes blur easily so I am a bit worried that the grey pointillism leaf will blur out quickly. Any thoughts on if this will happen and how long it would take? Additionally, if this were to happen would it be possible to touch it up and somehow make it more crisp? For instance, by outlining the leaf with a thicker black line in the future if it were to blur? I just don’t want to end up with a grey blob I can’t do anything about on my arm in 5 years!
