I've got a brand new tattoo, what is the best sunscreen to use to prevent it from fading?

While we have never done testing with regards to DHA and tattoo ink, we believe there would be no interaction. However, we suggest trying a test spot on a small section of the tattoo first. The color produced by the sunless tanner may affect the appearance of tattoo, especially if the tattoo is a lighter color.  If it does affect the appearance, the good thing is that the sunless is only a temporary color on the top layer of the skin so it will fade, tattoo ink is more permanent since the ink is down in the lower levels of the skin.
