As long as you do it with about 6-8 weeks to spare I think it should be ok… 

Even now 10 years after I got my tatt I just make sure to apply suncream to it every time I am in the sun and all is good (I got mine just before the Australia summer when I was 18 and even thou I was not as sun smart back then I still added sun cream to it and it was all good :))

Second that… just leave time so that the scabs can heal properly before the big day. After that… plenty of sunscreen!

As a tattoo addict I would say you definately need to give your new tattoo 6 weeks to fully heal, not just from the sun’s UV rays point of view, but also you are going to want to go swimming etc – and ‘soaking’ a fresh tattoo can cause the ink to leak.

Then I agree with the other bees – a factor 30+ sunscreen is a must for all tattoos new or old if you want to maintain good ink colour for the future
