I just got a new tattoo on my shouler last night. Can I take a shower and wash my hair this morning, or will it mess up the tattoo? It's been 17 years since I got a tattoo, and i don't remember how long to wait. Also, that last one was on my ankle so it was easy to keep dry. I'm worried that being on my shoulder, the water and shampoo will mess up the work. Please answer! Thanks.Answer Question

Take a piece of plastic wrap and medical tape and put it over your tattoo and then remove it when your all dried off. I have 15 tattoos and i do have my back done so just tape it up pretty well and it will be fine.

No you don't want to get it wet until the earliest tomorrow. If you can hold off from it getting wet until Friday that will be better.

I hit the button too soon... anyway I have 8 tattoos 5 of them very large. You really do need to rub it with the wash cloth or at least blot it.Its really important. Make sure to keep a& e on it constantly the first 5-6 days. That is where the wash rag comes in. You have to remove the old goop before you put on the new goop. Put saran wrap over it if you are wearing a shirt that covers it,
