Why You Should Get a Tattoo During the Winter

Here at Tattoo Consortium, we see an increase in the number of our customers walking through our doors during the spring and summer months. However, there many reasons why getting a tattoo during the winter can be better and more beneficial.

Benefits of Getting a Tattoo During the Winter

Less Sun Exposure

Everyone loves being able to soak up the sunlight during the spring and summer months, but it is not always ideal for tattoos. Sunlight can cause your tattoo to fade and slow down the healing process.

The cooler months are perfect for getting a tattoo because you cover more of your skin with long sleeves and pants. Therefore, you can easily get a full color tattoo and not worry about the colors fading in the sun.

Less Sweating

The summer heat means a lot of sweating, especially here in Texas. This is bad for your new tattoo. Also, the colder weather causes your skin’s pores to tighten and actually helps the skin to hold the ink better.

While you sweat less during the winter, you run a higher risk of dry skin. Therefore, you will want to make sure to keep your new winter tattoo and skin properly hydrated.

No Sacrifice of Pool Time

During the hot Texas summer months, being able to take a dip in the pool is a big bonus. However, when you get a tattoo during the summer, you have to give that up.

Getting a tattoo during the¬†winter months means you don’t have to worry about sacrificing pool time. The only thing you would have to look out for is if you get in a hot tub or take a hot bath.
