Will paintball ruin my tattoo sleeve?

Hey everyone

I quit the sport back in 2012 and i'm starting to play D4 again. Since I quit I have a brand new beautiful (and expensive) tattoo sleeve. Obviously I wont be playing until it is fully healed (4-5 weeks). I was wondering if anyone who plays has tattoo sleeves and if getting shot has effected their pieces at all?


I've been on here longer than you have been playing

get some elbow/arm pads and you'll be fine. I find myself still getting touch ups every other year.

Elbow/arm pads help protect your arm sleeves a lot, they do for me. Thing is, they don't cover the entire arm, just most of it. That said, be aware that most paintball hits to the unprotected areas will *probably* be fine but there is always a small small chance for a welt and if it's bad enough to where it breaks skin and scars over to heal (rare but possible) then there might be some minor tattoo damage. Welcome to the world of tattoo sleeves bud.
I've missed years. Can't waste minutes now.

Left in 2007. I loved it then.
Came back in 2015. I love it more now.
