Swimming, hot tubs and showers etc.
There is no reason you cannot get your tattoo wet, that’s perfectly OK. 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 very bad and can easily destroy your beautiful tattoo.
Swimming should also be avoided for up to 3 weeks after getting a new tattoo.
Most people forget the early aftercare and damage their new tattoo from the very start.
