Hi everyone. 

 

I know that my question may seem a bit silly and that someone could say to just use my common sense. I'm still looking for an advice. 

 

Everyday we are getting more and more of sun now and everyone will be using screen protector for their tattoo. Last year when I was doing so I have found that every time sunscreen was leaving stains on the clothes. Yellow stains on white t shirts and grey greasy on colour. They are incredible difficult to get rid of and it's difficult for me to imagine that every person who's got a tattoo is struggling with this. Is there any way, remedy to avoid that? I just can't think of any and I actually feel a bit silly to come here and ask for something like this.

I'm a bit surprised it never happened to you guys I'll try to change brand in that case. Anyway thanks. And this is what I have found about sunscreen stains. 

 

"Sunscreen stains are mostly oily, but they can also leave orange, rust-colored stains on your clothes thanks to avobenzone, an ingredient found in sunblock that can react with iron in hard water."

I always use a zinc based sunscreen which is the best for protection. But it’s also the greyest, thickest balm. Gets on everything like the op described. So now I wear golfing sleeves whenever I’m commuting or taking any kind of prolonged solar beat down on my arms. They’re really comfortable actually. Just google golf sleeves.
