1 Hidden in a tattoo
People with tattoos understandably like to show them off, which usually means plenty of sun exposure. There’s a popular myth that big tattoos can act as a sunscreen but not only is that untrue, some ink color—particularly white—can actually intensify sun damage. In addition, the ink can mask common symptoms of skin cancer like moles that change color or a bumpy lesion. So if you want to make sure all your skin stays as pretty as (your) pictures, make sure to pay close attention to your skin under the tattoos and always wear sunscreen.
