On Jocelyn and my recent trip to California we decided spur of the moment to get a tattoo while we were in Venice Beach. We figured after being friends for 23 years and talking about it forever it would be fun to get a tattoo. (see my tattoo below)
Jocelyn was scared out of her mind but while she was getting her tattoo done she sat there like a champ and acted like it was easy and pain free.I went second and maybe because I am a wimp or maybe because we got the tattoo on our feet I winced and wriggled like I was being branded with a hot iron. Jocelyn was laughing so hard and taking pictures of me as I shrieked (no I will not post them!). Even the tattoo artist ended up laughing at me, ahh the fond memories of our vacation.
Once we had our tattoos and a cocktail we went back to our hotel to read up on aftercare. We found out that tattoos on your feet tend to fade faster and red (the color we chose) is one of the fastest fading colors. You would think two 30 yr old moms would know better and research beforehand, but apparently not. After returning from our vacation I was contacted by chance from a rep for a great company called Tattoo Potion about some new aftercare products they had on the market.
I am in love with the Tattoo sunscreen until reading up I never knew the sun was my tattoo’s worst enemy and being on my foot I needed to make sure to protect it. The Tattoo Potion sunscreen is great and it has a non stick formula so you don’t have to worry about sand or dirt getting glued to your feet.
Tattoo Potion #7 and #9 both work at protecting your tattoo from fading and ensuring it will remain as great as the day you left the tattoo parlor. I have had a little fading from wearing the wrong shoes too early but Tattoo Potion #9 is helping restore the original brilliance.
