Swimming 1 month after a new tattoo?

I am getting a new tattoo in 3 sessions, ending July 2nd. (Last session being touch-ups and maybe a bit of shading), I am schedule to go on a Beach destination vacation September 7th.. will this be enough time to heal with me going into the Ocean frequently? Thanks

(I will have free touch-ups for 6 months).

    One month should be just enough time. Depending on how your body heals it might be a little longer or shorter.

    But most likely you will be fine. Just make sure to put on sunscreen frequently. Nothing worse than getting a new tattoo and having it fade.
