Grappling and Tattoos?
So, I don't usually post questions, but this is one I've been looking for feedback on.

For those with grappling experience and tattoos: How much time did you take off after getting ink?

I'm looking at getting one, but trying to figure out how much mat time I'm going to lose.

I got my ink done years before I started grappling. Though I can say it took about two weeks for me to be comfortable with it being fully healed.

Think of it like any other scrape/shallow cut injury, it bleeds, and it scabs over, when that stops its pretty much good to go. Keep it clean and bandaged up like instructed and down time should be minimal.

Remember a tat is a open wound like CFT said keep it clean....I got some work done a month back and I gave it 5 days but I was scared to death....Staph is no joke Ive never had it and I never want it
