    Default How long after a new tattoo i can have a bath?

    So I got my tattoo coverup 6 days ago. Looks great and is healing well with no scabs I'm at the itchy peeling stage at the moment, but its not as sore.
    I know I can't have a bath straight away, but how long should I wait? Its on my lower back, just above my ass.

    I usually wait about 2 weeks before soaking in water (either pool or bath) although when I got my foot done we went away to a log cabin with a hot tub about a week later so I just mostly stuck my foot out the water haha (which I realise is a lot harder with your lower back!)

    If it's healing well like you say then 2 weeks minimum, ideally I'd say wait slightly longer than that. Tattoo's can be evilily deceptive!
