    I never go out in the sun so thats not a problem, but I get punched/kicked directly on my tattoo 2-3 times a week...bare nuckled. It's part of my training and its not something I can really help.

    I notice that bruises don't even show up or discolor the tattoo, but when I have a really bad hit the tattoo is raised up in that section. Will all of this have a negative effect on the longevity of the colors?

    it shouldnt effect the tattoo at all. the raised part is just the pigment under your skin getting irritated

    If you think about it you tattoo is always going to be scar tissue, never exactly healed like the rest ever again. So maybe scars swell a little bit when a lot of blood is circulating near them, like when you get excited or injured there. Vale tudo and MMA are awesome man, I just got back from a local show near Atlanta, it kicked ass.
