Do you take any time off from the gym to let your new tattoo heal?
I took a week off when i got my tattoo. Can't be too safe.
I had to take around 7-10 days off for each of my 5 sessions on the ribs. If you are getting something gay like a little scorpion on your shoulder I wouldn't worry about it. If you are getting something huge in a highly mobile place you'll probably have to get some time off...i'm doing my whole chest from shoulder-shoulder in early march so I'll prob have to take some time off then
I want to get shadow lines inked on my abs.
its a good sized custom piece on my chest
maybe I'll just concentrate on legs, lower back and arms this week
i took about a week, the gym is not a place to have an open wound like a tat
about a week off.
agreed with purevl. you don't wanna be going to crazy once you get your tat.
edit: btw...getting a tattoo adds 15lbs to your bench.
only if it's of a wolf
I just got a tat a week ago and took a week off training/lifting to let it heal.
good lord I'm ready to go to class tonight and then hit the weights
