    I know the rule is you shouldn't go swimming with a fresh tat. I might be getting a tattoo while on vacation at the end of March and on the way home we're visiting Disney World. We'll be at the water park at some point and I was wondering if going on a few slides would be ok as long as I don't keep it submerged in the water.

    Or could I just use saran wrap and water proof tape to keep it covered? I know it should have air, but would one day of being wrapped up hurt it in any way?

    i tend to wait two weeks until i totally submerge it in water or at least until it stops scabbing and completely healed

    but being that people tend to shower everyday, i don't see why you couldn't go on the water rides...and i'm sure keeping it coverd for one day won't hurt it

    If there's scabs on the tattoo then you don't want to soak them.

    the chemicals, the submerging/soaking and the sun are 3 things you don't want to deal with.

    thanks ;)

    chlorine and anything else in a pool is a big no-no for a wound
