    Default Foot tattoo and running

    Hello strangers, it has been a while.

    Basically I'm (finally) getting my left foot tattooed tomorrow with this;

    However I've got a 5k "run" (air quoted as I highly doubt I'll be running it, more a slow waltz) coming up last weekend in July. As it's only Race For Life and therefore not competitive, I'm not really training for it. After two week's worth of healing, I plan to start walking a few miles a day then I'll start a bit of running training, not much, three half hour sessions a week or something. Will my tattoo be okay by then? Any advice on what I can wear on my foot before putting my running shoes on?
    ROSIE!

    I skated 2 weeks after one of my feet were tattooed and lost a little bit of colour (only from places that weren't fully flaked). Still, I've also warn knee/elbow pads etc over freshly tattooed areas well within the two-weeks with zero issues at all, especially when its just outline (like a molecular diagram would be). Based on my experiences, I'd guess you'll be fine in a month to run.

    If at all in doubt what I've found works best for healing under pads at least is wearing a layer or two of tights (not the cotton ones, too absorbent) underneath. The tights compress the area a bit without adding a wet layer and allow the pay (or shoe) to rub across the area without damage. Even when I've had large areas of colour get moist form sweat, I've just made sure to let the area dry out afterwards (without picking etc) and everything was fine & dandy.

    Thanks for the replies! I'll take on board what you both said

    Quick q to you DehTripper, I've got work tomorrow night in a bar and as I feel uncomfortable having my tattoo out in that sort of environment (filth, alcohol, other people's big feet stomping on me!), do you think I'd be okay to cover my tattoo with two pairs of tights and then wear skater shoes over the top?

    I had to cover both of my foot tattoos the day after getting them done for work, I wore cotton socks but kept my tattoos well moisturised so the socks didn't "stick" to them. Hardly any colour loss, just a teeny bit of the outline I could have got retouched but it's only noticeable if you get reeeeally close hehe.
    Stabbings I still have
    Right ear
    : 2 x helix, conch & rook
    Left ear: helix, conch & tragus
    Tongue web, nostril, septum
    Triangle, VCH & 2 x outers
