Seafood slow the process the skin healing.and cause itchiness to the wound .not sure if it is scientifically proven . However , it is taboo in our custom.

Stubborn, now my tatoo now look like done through hot stamping.

i did not practice it myself and the result is permenant.
its just for few days. Better to be safe than sorry.. my two cents worth.

hey there guys and gals,

im also thinkin of gettin 1, but you not supposed to swim for 2 - 4 weeks after getting it done, so that would kinda wreck my holiday!
can any1 confirm this to be true?

The whole idea is to keep the tatoo area dry..
Depending how fast your skin heals. Ideally 2-4 days.

oh yea , some might think to do the tatoo at the end of thier holiday so that they still can go to beach etc. It depends on your priority , if you do your tatoo at the begining of your holiday and IF your skin start peeling along with the ink , then you will have enough time to go back to the shop for a touch up . Normally, this a free service.
