Can i go in for sports with tattoos?

The quality of the tattoo depends not only on the procedure itself, but also on how you take care of the tattoo after the procedure.

After tattooing, the skin is covered with a layer of dried blood (scab), which has a protective function. Once this area is damaged or scratched, the tattoo itself is damaged. This is especially true for sports such as hockey, martial arts, basketball - therefore, it is recommended to protect the tattoo site with an armband from the very beginning. The situation is similar with swimmers ... it is not recommended to soak a fresh tattoo in water - this also applies to the shower.

As a rule, athletes are encouraged to rethink the term "tattoo" in order to skin what is possible least stressed during training or matches.
