I just got a new tattoo on my hip two nights ago. I started tanning at the tanning bed a week ago and didn't know my tattoo would conflict with it. I need to continue tanning because I am pale, prom is right around the corner, and I have already paid for a certain number of sessions. My instructions were to not tan for two weeks, but I desperately need to. If I wait another week and cover up my tattoo with a towel, will it be okay to tan? Or a bandage or paper towels? Any suggestions? Please do not say that the tanning bed is dangerous and will cause skin cancer because I am aware of that. Also, please do not say I should wait 4 or more weeks, because the artist that did my tattoo said two weeks was the max I needed to wait. Thanks in advance for the help!
