These tips might help you have the best experience getting a tattoo in Cancun.
Care for your new tattoo: VERY IMPORTANT!!! It is best to wait until the day before you go home to get your tattoo. Why? You want to keep your new tattoo clean, dry & out of the sun.
It's OK to get your tattoo wet - just don't soak it. Submerging your tattoo in a bath or hot tub can cause serious damage, so you'll want to avoid those for 2-3 weeks, but showering is perfectly fine as long as you don't saturate your tattoo. If you get soap or shampoo on your tattoo, just remove it quickly with water. Swimming - whether it be a pool, fresh water or salt water - should be avoided for at least 2 weeks.
