How to Keep Tattoos From Fading

FYI, the Sun Fades Tattoos

If you've been inked, you probably know there's a possibility your body art will fade over time, but did you know sun exposure can also speed up your tat's disappearance? Along with not getting proper moisturizing and care, sun exposure, especially tanning beds, can totally destroy the bright colors in a tattoo and even fade the blackest ink. So how can you keep your art looking fresh without getting reinked? Wear sunscreen on it every time you go outside, keep your skin hydrated, and don't bake yourself — it's terrible for you anyway.
