So, on a whim, I got a tatoo on my shoulder worked on yesterday. It is an old tatoo that I always wanted to add to... I get a sick tatoo artist to ink me up yesterday. Afterwards, I was like, so should I stay out of the water for a couple days? He was like, "uhh, try a couple weeks". He told me to wait 10-14 days so i dont risk infection... Then I asked him if I taped it up with water proof bandages under my setsuit, if that would work and he still said no...

What is everyone experiences? I got my first tatoo at 18 and was at Towson, obviosuly away from surf at the time...

How long do you guys with ink wait?
