Practicing sports after getting a tattoo? Find the answer here
Sports and tattoos, all about it.
Practicing sports after getting a tattoo is a very repeated practice lately. Nowadays, there are many people who like to combine visiting tattoo studios and different sports centers. but is this a recommended practice?
If we talk about combining tattoos and sport, of course there is no problem in combining both, in fact, you should practice sport on a regular basis. There are many people who like to have a fit body along with numerous tattoos on it, a lifestyle that has been booming in recent years. If we talk about practicing sport just by getting a tattoo, this is not recommended for the following reasons.
The first reason is that we should treat the tattoo as an injury, as we already commented in one of the previous blogs. Since it is a wound, the tattoo must heal and sweat does not favor this, which could be a problem. The next reason is the exposure to possible surfaces that can infect the tattoo, sea water or swimming pools, or sun exposure. Therefore, special care must also be taken with contact sports and water sports. These warnings are more important the first days after, then you can resume the sport in a moderate way depending on the speed of healing of each person.
It is very important to follow the instructions given by the tattooist or the tattoo studio. If you are not careful with the tattoo once it is done, it could lose quality and not have the expected result. Therefore, from our tattoo studio in Valencia we recommend that you consult the steps to follow once the tattoo is done, especially if you are a sports person.
