Getting Water on Your New Tattoo

Swimming, hot tubs and showers etc.

There is no reason you cannot get your tattoo wet, that’s perfectly okay. But, beware of hot water. A shower is no problem, but baths and hot tubs where the tattoo is submerged for long periods in hot water, in particular chlorinated hot water is certainly not idea and can easily destroy elements of your beautiful tattoo.

Swimming should also be avoided for up to 3 weeks after getting a new tattoo.

Many people forget the early aftercare and damage their new tattoo from the very start.
