Posted:I just got my first tat a little while ago and really like it it's the monkey/clock symbol from the movie 12 Monkeys. Anyway I was just wondering how long I should wait before it can accidently get burnt? Any help?

A wise man once said to me, Hey! You! Get out of my wardrobe! and in a way, I guess he was right.

Posted:wait at least a few weeks after the scabs have fallen off, any accident before or durring scabbage, with effect of said scabbage falling or being pulled off will result in damaged tattoo and loss of ink.

to stop it from scabbing and best result in tattoo, keep moist with savalon and wrapped in clingfilm for several days, scab shouldnt or hardly form and you end up with a nice tat.

As love unveils the beauty of all things."
