The Trouble with Sunburn Tattoos

Some people like to give themselves something called “sunburn tattoos”. These are exactly what they sound like: pictures rendered in the skin by leaving unprotected areas as you apply your sunblock, allowing the sun to tan or redden an area so that it stands out among the rest of your skin. The results can look quite impressive, but the long-term effects are not as fun.

The fact is that any unprotected sun exposure is serving to damage your skin, and this is doubly true when you are actually trying to burn your skin. Though you may not necessarily get skin cancer, you are sure to develop wrinkling, unsightly spots, uneven blotches of pigmentation, or other unappealing side effects.

When you go out in the sun, always wear your sunblock. The fleeting effects of tanning or sunburn tattoos are not worth the often irreversible damage you are doing. If you are serious about decorating your skin, consider professional tattoo services. If you are serious about getting the most out of your skin, talk to our Botox clinic in Tacoma.
