Sun bathing after my first tattoo?

My family is having a huge pool party this afternoon and I just got my tattoo yesterday around 3. It's 3 words on my ankle and isn't very big at all. Is it safe it be in the sun? Since its not really getting direct sunlight it shouldn't be sitting straight in the sun. I'm not going to swim though!... show more My family is having a huge pool party this afternoon and I just got my tattoo yesterday around 3. It's 3 words on my ankle and isn't very big at all.

All the tattoo artist said was wash it really well if I go swimming.
