You'll want to wait a minimum of 4-6 weeks to tan. Your tattoo should be fully healed. Do not protect it with virtually any saran wrap as well as cloth and bronze. Do NOT put sunblock in your new tattoo, it is going to damage it. If you need color on skin, get some squirt tan and spray throughout the tattoo. Once that heals, never expose the tattoo to the sun for extended intervals. The sun, and also tanning beds, diminish tattoos quickly. Did you have this done in a shop from an authorized artist? Did they not supply you with care instructions? The artist needs to have instructed you to stay from the sun or suntanning beds. Again, absolutely no sunblock, Vaseline, as well as Neosporin, let your own tattoo heal absolutely!!! Either wait until it really is completely healed (about a month) or put a wet paper towel about it. I did it plus it was fine. Just don't glob sunscreen on it for quite a while. In like per month put just the standard amount of sun screen about it. I have 16 tattoos and still have had them only a few years now and we have not had one particular fade yet. I use just the regular amount of sun screen on them.
