    Can you workout after having a tattoo done???

    Not sure where to put this question, but is there any expert advice that it is fine to workout after getting a tattoo done? My workouts are grueling and intense, I sweat like a pig on fire lol.....

    I was told so long as you don't have a wet shirt sitting on it for prolonged periods of time you're fine. I worked out after getting a tattoo on my left shoulder without any ill-effect, just used a sleeveless shirt or tanktop and dabbed off the sweat if it got too bad.

    I'm sure you could workout still. Just have to change shirt every so often and dab of the sweat. If not all the sweat and the shirt will peel off the scabbing and wont allow the tattoo to heal properly and you would have to go get it touched up.

    Placement is the only concern. As long as you have nothing rubbing against the tattoo and causing it to become irritated you'll be fine. As for sweating, no big deal, just make sure NOT to wipe it but rather pat the area dry when cooling down.

    Where is the tattoo?

    But really shouldn't be a problem, if you get really sweaty just dab the tat don't wipe it so you don't scratch off any of the skin. BTW if your artist was good you shouldn't have scabs on your tattoo.

    sweating isn't even close to as bad for it as rubbing. if it's like on your back, you don't want to be laying on a bench. and you don't want to do anything that can stretch it either.

    I didn't have a problem working out after I first got tattooed, but then again my tattoo was on my ribs. Just keep it dry, clean, and avoid friction.

    OK I wouldn't worry about just work out and don't rub it.

    The thing about getting it wet is more about soaking it anyway, like in the tub or pool.

    good luck

    Just make sure you clean up real good and put lotion & whatnot on it as soon as you're done at the gym.

    I got 2 on my chest last year in 4 sessions, I was in the gym the next day. I followed the artists directions and used an antibacterial ointment for 2-3 days and just lotion after that. I did make sure my shirt was loose enough for comfort.

    There is nothing wrong with working out with a new tattoo. The only concerns are as follows:

    1) pressing the tattoo on something like a bench or a barbell if doing squats and the tattoo is on your back

    2) making sure the equipment you use is sanitized, dont want the tattoo getting infected

    3) wash it immediately when you get done working out

    Sweating has no effect on the tattoo after 12- 24 hours. A lot of people will say tht sweating will push the ink out of your skin. If the ink is going to be pushed out, there is nothing you can do to prevent that. your body just doesnt want that ink. To say a good atist will cause you not to scab over is ludacrious. It is the individual, not the artist, that will determine if you scab over or not. Just do what you did for your other tattoos, assuming this isnt your first one, and you will be fine.

    I would just be nervous of Staph infection if the tat is a little deep and not healed well.

    Maybe ask the artist doing the ink?

    I'm actually concerned about it aslo, getting a half sleeve done on my left arm while I'm on my 2 week RnR from Afghanistan, but I don't really want to take a break from lifting. But I figure I should be alright if I don't wear my gloves to work out right? Since I won't have any wrist support, i can jsut lift light with high reps to keep myself in it, should have to worry about messing up the ink or hurtin my wrists.... or am I just way way WAY off? Please, any advice will help, only been lifting for 7 months, still kind of a beginner..

    I think the advice from two years ago still holds true today. Ask the tattoo artist.

    Training with fresh tattoos is fine. Wipe equipment prior to use and don't make direct contact with healing area. So If you get a tattoo on your should low bar squats should be avoided. Just be sanitary and use common sense.

    It depends on where you just had it done. You don't want to allow sweat/salt to accumulate over it. Just make sure you use some ointment to protect it and you should be fine. Just don't do too much the first week. Most tattoos take 6 to 10 days to completely heal (with proper care).
