    For the tat get the highest spf you can. Tanning will fade tats. It's the UV rays that fade them, just like sunlight will fade fabrics.

    Tanning definitely fades tats... My black one is gray now. Some people even say it's green to piss me off.

    Maybe I should use higher than SPF 8 from now on.

    actually you can use chapstick that has spf 30 in it to get more precise coverage and it won't sweat off as easy. and you can carry it to reapply..All of my white in mine is gone.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Yay for me. I have all the natural tanning I need.

    How come you didn't get a little tan before you got the tattoo?
    The half-million citizens of the District of Columbia, like citizens of the fifty states, bear all of the obligations of American citizenship: they are required to obey the laws passed by Congress; they pay federal taxes; they serve in the military; and they fight and die in our wars. Yet they lack the most basic right that should accompany American citizenship—the right to full voting representation in Congress. This makes the United States the only nation in the world with a representative, democratic constitution that denies citizens of its capital representation in the national legislature. In fact, no fewer than 183 nations provide their citizens the type of representation citizens of Washington, DC are denied.
