Will a spray tan affect my tattoo?  This is a very common question and concern for anyone with a tattoo if they are thinking about getting a spray tan.

DHA, ​the active ingredient in sunless solutions, work with the skin’s proteins and amino acids in order to turn the skin a brown color when it is exposed to oxygen.

Most tattoos contain enough pigment that the DHA will only affect the skin, and not the color of the tattoo.  However, lighter colors  may darken slightly with the application of DHA.
