Is it ok to briefly swim with a new tattoo?
I'm a Lifeguard at a pool and I really want to get a new tattoo, unfortunately my job revolves around me getting in the water if I need to. So if I had a fresh tattoo and had to jump in for a rescue, would it harm the tattoo too much? Or would it be ok?
You should not go swimming with a new tattoo.

Get the tattoo in the off season, and let it heal before you go swimming.
