In order to preserve your body art for a longer period, it is important to keep in mind that sunlight can fade it away. The tattoo is now part of your body and the better you groom your body, especially the skin, the better your tattoo will look for longer.
Tattoos are something very special for anyone. One can take precautions by covering tattoos if they are getting too much of sunlight exposure. You can have a permanent cover, or even a simple paper towel will do.
