    I’m booked in to get 2 new tattoos, 1 of them is a large piece on my hip/thigh and will be done 6.5 weeks before I go on holiday.
    The other is much smaller, mostly line work, on my ribs. That will be done 4 weeks before I go.

    I intend to use spf 30 suncream and try to cover up – but I will be swimming in the sea and a pool and wearing shorts etc in the sun.

    Is 4 and 6 weeks long enough for them to heal enough?

    Does anyone have any tips for looking after new tattoos on holiday?
