New Tattoo and Exercise

So I just got my tattoo yesterday and the artist told me not to exercise until it was healed (this could be anywhere from 1-4 weeks!) But I didn't think to ask her what specifically she meant. My sports bra wont rub it so that's not a problem, and if I just run that wont stretch the kin on my shoulder, but is sweat an issue? They are closed today so I can't ask, but does anyone know what would be the reason to not exercise? I will have to just walk I guess.

  • I have never heard this... and I just got a new tattoo 2 months ago... No direct sunlight, no chlorine, no fresh or salt water I heard... but no exercise? Maybe it has to do with location?

  • I have never heard this either. Unless it is a matter of rubbing like you talked about I can't think of why no excercise.

  • I will have to call and make sure then, because I have been running a lot lately trying to lose weight before our family reunion in 2 weeks and this will really put a damper on things.

  • Well what the heck? I could understand if it was in the bra zone, but it's not. Maybe she meant for the next 24hours and I misunderstood her? I will be calling her at 1230 when the shop opens for clarification then.
