A Tattoo-Specific Sunscreen


A good number of my friends, Nancita included, have tattoos. So when she showed me this Tattoo Goo sunscreen stick ($6.49), I had to share it with you. Wearing sunblock is important for your skin's health anyway, but it's of special concern if you're inked up. Sun exposure can fade the color of your tattoo over time, making that cool orange clownfish design look like a faded, anemic guppy.

If you already wear sunblock, you probably don't need to buy this separate product; anything with SPF 30 will protect your skin anyway. However, if you prefer a stick applicator, this makes sense. It contains a chemical sunblock, oxybenzone, as well as the physical block of zinc oxide. My only hesitation with this stuff is that it isn't waterproof, so if you're into aquatic sports, I'd stick with Bull Frog ($8.49), which is an all-around great sunblock for sporty types.
