We have some very exciting news involving tattoo removal that we will be offering starting next month. It's been a very long road to find a better and safer solution than laser and has also been put to the test. It is here!!
While any time of year is great for getting a tattoo, some times of the year are slightly better than others. Today, Cap1 Tattoos in Denton, Texas is going to share some of the biggest benefits of getting a tattoo during the fall and winter months.
Less Sun Exposure
While everyone loves being able to soak up the sunlight during the spring and summer months, it’s not always great for tattoos. The sunlight can fade your tattoo and slow down the healing process. However, the cooler months are perfect for getting a tattoo because you cover more of your skin with long sleeves and pants. That means you can easily get a full color tattoo and not worry about the colors fading in the sun.
Along with the heat of summer, comes a lot of sweating which is bad for your new tattoo. The colder weather also causes your skin’s pores to tighten and actually helps the skin to hold the ink better. However, while you sweat less, you can also run a higher risk of dry skin. So, you’ll want to make sure to keep your new tattoo and skin properly hydrated.
No Sacrifice of Pool Time
Being able to take a dip in the pool is a big bonus during the summer, and when you get a tattoo in the summer, you have to give that up. However, when you get a tattoo during the fall and winter months, you don’t have to worry about that! The only thing you would have to look out for is if you get in a hot tub or take a hot bath.
When it comes to getting a tattoo, the fall and winter months truly are the best times to get a tattoo. If you would like to get a tattoo during these colder months, contact Cap1 Tattoos near Dallas, Texas today. We are booked three – four months, so if you would like to get a tattoo before the weather starts to warm up, reach out to us as soon as possible.
