    Everyone will probably tell you to keep it out of the sun. That is critical. However if you are in the sun make sure to where a strong sunscreen. I like Revita Shield by Revita Ink. It is a specialized sunscreen made to help prevent tattoo fading. In general you have to care for your tattoo similar to you would care for your face. As your skin ages the tattoo will fade. Again, check out Revita Ink. They have multiple products that can be applied to your tattoo. All their line is specifically made to prevent fading and loss of color.I started using the product line shortly after I finished my arm piece. This was 6 months ago. I am still very impressed with how bright the color has stayed. It seems to have faded far less, if any, than my other tattoos. I would recommend you give the product line a try. Hope this helps. If it does, please make sure to vote me as the best answer. Thanks.

    If it has healed moisturise it regularly once a week at least, and use sunscreen when ever it will be exposed to sun screen. If it is still healing keep washing, drying and moisturising 3-4 times a day using tiny amounts of lotion on it until it has finished peeling. Also keep it out of the sun while healing and no soaking in a bath pool or the sea. Quick showers are fine. then when peeling is done do the above.
