If you are looking for the perfect place to do your tattoo, while also being able to hide it easily for those work and conventional family meetings, then this sternum tattoo might be the perfect choice for you! You can get super creative with these tattoos, while also being able to keep them private. Keep on reading to find out more and to see some of our top picks for sternum tattoo designs!
What Do You Wear to a Sternum Tattoo?
You can wear a loose shirt and any bra you want to your sternum tattoo appointment. It would probably be best to wear something baggy, you can also consult with your tattoo artist. If you are worried about your breasts being exposed, the artist will probably give you some tape to cover everything needed.
Can You Wear a Bra After Getting a Sternum Tattoo?
It is not recommended to have the bra sticking to your new tattoo, so we would suggest that you wear something baggy after getting your sternum tattoo done. If you must wear a bra, maybe go with a loose sports bra. The healing process of sternum tattoos is the same as for most tattoos, so you should be looking at a 2-3 week process.
