Excessive sweating with fresh tattoo help

Recommended Posts

Hello I’m new to the last sparrow and need some help. I work outside in the heat and I got my first tattoo three days ago on my upper back  and without thinking about it the past two days I’ve been working in the heat all day with a sweat drenched shirt on I plan on bringing extra shirts to work from now on but could these past two day have an effect on the healing of my tattoo and what it will look like when it’s done healing?

Your sweat shouldn't really affect things much. Important that whatever you're doing outside doesn't include lots of dust, dirt or grime which might soak through your shirt and into the wound between cleanings.

Sweating, specially in the early days of a fresh tattoo is good for you, just you need to keep the salt off- which means you should probably wash it more often (and put on a clean shirt).

    • @tertia - kind of a late response to this, but that's is a very nice rose. Very bold and solid. Congrats!
    • @Charmed– I'm definitely a fan of large pieces and heavy coverage. But I have to say that there is sometimes something very dramatic about a single well-placed tattoo, and yours falls into that category. It is like a single painting hanging in the middle of a wall, it sort of focuses the eye. Very pretty! That being said, the wrapping idea sounds nice. Alternatively, since you seem to be inclined to get more tattoos, maybe you could move to another part of your body for your next piece, and let this one sit for a while as you ponder ideas for your leg. As @Hogrider said, think about where you want to go with your leg. Do you want an integrated large piece, or a collection of pieces?
    • I'm a month shy of 25y/o.  I'm just not a movie guy; I'm a comic book and punk guy.  I also like the Mohawk Hot stuff, very 80's-90's NYHC. Wonderful tattoo though, lets not take away from that.
