Default Tattoos and going to the gym

Hi guys

I am booked in for a sleeve in the next few months (foo dog and either dragon or hannya mask) but I have also started going to the gym recently and was wondering if my tattoo will distort as I build muscle? (I dont have skinny arms but they will get a bit bigger than they currently are over time)

Thanks for any help you can give

Like is it still smart to wait to build at least half of the muscle you plan to before getting any large work?
Won't make an ounce of difference. Unless you have one in a million genetics, stick ten tonne of gear in your ass and train like a maniac for years it ain't gonna matter.

I've been told the only way they can get stretched in the gym is if you take anything that would cause enhanced growth so steroids or HGH. The rate at which ur body naturally can gain muscle mass will not negatively affect your tattoos.
