    I'm in training for a big swim and I keep putting off getting this tattoo that ive wanted because of it. Should i continue putting it off or is there a way i can dress it to swim. It would probably go on my chest and i swim for about an hour at a time :dunno:

    thanks :wavey:

    I should also add, I'm biking and running a lot also, so beyond the pool there is a lot of time i spend sweating...

    Sweat isn't a major concern but swimming is. It needs to be healed before you swim. Soaking a healing tattoo for 1hr will just make it scab up really bad.

    I wouldn't do it. Wait until you're done training or half a rest period

    I worked in 2 tattoo shops for many years and I will tell you what we told everyone else....Do not swim until the tattoo is healed (until all the flakes and or scabs have fallen off), or just wait to get it done until you aren't swimming for a small window of time. Normally it takes me a week - 2 weeks for all the flakes to go away, some people it takes longer.

    Well they just sent me the last bill. Apparently the insurance company and the hospital had to argue for a couple years first. That bill came straight out of the blue and I was PISSED when i got it :o lol
