1.Wear sunblock every day on your tattoos as well as any part of the body exposed to the sun.

2. Moisturize your skin every day - that means men, too! Right after you shower lock in the moisture already on your skin with a layer of emollient lotion. This time of year, if you skip the moisturizer your skin is itching and dry again in no time.

3. When not showing them off, keep your tattoos completely covered for the best color protection. Darker, more tightly woven fabrics provide a better armor than light-colored clothing. Consider clothing specially designed with sun-protecting properties.

4.Put your clothes to the test: If you can see through it when you hold it up to the light, then UV radiation can penetrate it and your skin.

5.Keep your skin healthy ,eat right and drink lots of water to keep your skin elastic and hydrated. Dry, flaky skin is unattractive. Dry, flaky tattoed skin isn't any better.
