I have a shoulder bi tat. Just make sure and keep it clean and get some tatoo goo to keep the colors sharp and if you go in the sun use sunscreen. And tons of lotion, to prevent stretch marks while on cycle.

just dont use any cream till it heals. also if you sweat a lot ya might
want to stay out of the gym for a few days. as it heals you want to keep it

Tattoo goo is a waste of money, get some bacitricine, nothing more than a moisterizing lotion once it has healed up. If it's one thing i know, it's tattoos.

I have heard from tat artists that it DOES make a difference but from everyone here they say it dosent.... but I was just trying to find out the same thing because I want this tat but I dont want to stretch this **** out of it and make it look ugly when I put on alot more muscle. But I have read alot on this and it seems it is alllll good. go for it

i just put vasaline on mine in the morning, afternoon, & night and it was fine. i don't think you should let it dry out. and, for the saran wrap in the shower, i never did that, but i guess it could work??

i have got several tatts hemeroid cream is good to put on it morn+night also wash it 2-3 times a day with warm soapy water and pat it dry with a clean towl.i wouldnt work out your arms for a few days as i did and where you pump up it pushes blood and ink bck out so now i have patches on the one on my shouler to bicep where the ink has seaped out a ltlle.good luck bro

i keep mine dry for the 1st 3 days or so then i use a&d ointment on it for the next 5 days or so. its for baby diaper rash, works well.

You use the a&d ointment for the first 48 hours and then regular hand lotion.You can get your tat wet like in the shower and stuff its just not suggested to soak in a tub or pool for a couple of weeks.

i think everyone has there own ways of doin it, all i know is the way i do it works for me. basically just dont soak in water, stay away from strong scented soap for 5 days or so, keep it out of the sun for the 1st little bit and use fragrence free lotion.

I had my 3rd tat done for Christmas, Its a dumbell thats inbetween my tricep and the top of my bicep. It actually looks better as i get bigger.
All i do is use warm water (no soap) and cotten wool and wash it twice a day.
After you wash it, dry it and jently apply some bapanthen(baby rash cream) Its a trade secret of tattoo artists though you never buy it from then as they charge you $4.00 more than the supermaket price.
Hope it goes well bro
