A tattoo is more than just a piece of art, it’s a medical procedure too. Because a needle is used to insert the ink underneath your skin you leave yourself vulnerable to scarring and infections. Caring for your tattoo can prevent those complications and ensure that the tattoo heals properly.
Keep in mind that sun-protection does not increase proportionally to an increase in SPF (Sun Protectin Factor). That means that higher SPF number doesn’t necessarily provide better protection. For example, an SPF of 2 absorbs 50% of UV rays, SPF 15 absorbs 93%, and an SPF of 34 absorbs 97% of UV rays.
