Hi all :p

Im thinking of getting my first tattoo on my upper arm but on go on holiday in 6 weeks to eygpt and it 45C so chance of sunburn is pretty high. Would my tattoo be healed up and would the intense sun fade it pretty bad ?
the design is below and hope you guys like it.:cool:

Depending on when you get the tattoo and go on holiday, the sun can have bad effects on your tattoo. If you got the tattoo then next day sit out in 45C the sun will severly slow down or even stop the healing process. If you let it get sunburnt then you’ve ruined the tattoo. Simple solution is just cover it up when you go outside.

Hi

It is a nice design but if you are going somewhere hot I would recommend waiting until after the holiday.
The surface will heal within 2 weeks usually but beneath the skin takes 6-8 weeks to fully heal.

Tattoos and sunlight do not go well together especially high uv/ub rays like you get in Egypt ( I spent some time there it is great – recommend Giza if you get chance).

I would recommend waiting until you get back from the holiday.

Take Care

The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this. The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.

Is it a twist on the eye of horus? IF so I would definitely wait.. who knows how Egyptians will take that if there see it.

It looks like a bird, too. Either way it’s pretty cool. I agree on waiting though.
