Can people with tattoos tan?

It's not a regular tattoo, but an aesthetic correction for a scar I got on my hips that I'd like to do. But I also love tanning. Will I have to go pale?

Updates:
Its not an actual tattoo, its skin correction with skin colored tattoo ink

  • Tattoo ink does not darken, but the skin around it does. So yes you can still tan.

  • During the healing process you should not tan. Once it is healed, you are free to tan.

  • Yeah, I have tanned with tattoos however it may cause it to fade a tad, but I haven't had any problems.

  • probably not right after. i'd give it at least 2 months before tanning again.

  • it makes their tat fade faster and it can give them skin cancer so you sound better off not tanning

  • Yes, of course but the UV will make the tattoo age quicker.
