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 am wanting a colorful big lotus on my shoulder (will be my first tattoo), and am finding artists that I like although their work is almost all in black. Is an artist who is talented in black not necessarily skilled with color?   Also, I am in Colorado and would definitely appreciate artist recommendations 
    • I did reply to this but for some reason it didn’t work.... so excuse me if for some reason I’ve posted this story twice.    a similar thing happened to me, but with my grandad. He unfortunately had a stroke and lost his marbles - previously a very proud man (an architect) and wasn’t overly fond of tattoos however.. I got a fairy tattooed on my shoulder about 10 years ago representing my grandparents because I went fairy hunting with them as a young child and it was such a special, magical time in my childhood that I wanted to keep a reminder.. anyhow. After he had his first stroke (unfortunately he had numerous) I showed him, he had tears in his eyes and stroked her gently and told me how beautiful she was. It really upset me but in a good way, because I knew at that moment it meant something to him too.    I also have “tomorrow’s another day” tattooed on my collarbone because it’s a saying my dad told me growing up (he suffered with depression, as did I growing up) so it was a constant reminder to try and remember that although today may be shit... tomorrow will hopefully be better. 
    • @oboogie that’s adorable. I want an old lady to touch my arm haha @Hollie yeah that seems to be the general consensus- doesn’t matter what people think as long as yr good with it. I think I was just seeking affirmation that it wasn’t a ‘bad tattoo’ / ‘done poorly.’ Ya know that pesky self doubt that a creeps around the brain!
