It’s almost summer—time to throw on the bikini or swim trunks and head to the beach! It’s time to start collecting that brilliant summer tan you’ll be showing off all season... It’s also the perfect opportunity to show off your ink for the world to see. But your ink is an investment and prolonged exposure to the sun (or tanning bed) can actually fade your tattoo, so it’s a catch-22. Do you show off your ink and risk sun exposure or do you cover up this investment which you spent so much money on?
Before you start panicking that you’ve committed yourself to a life indoors with pale skin, don’t fret. There are alternative options that will allow you to continue to enjoy the summer fun while still maintaining your body art.
