After getting a tattoo how long did you wait until you started running or playing basketball?

My tattoo artist recommended me not run for 24-48 hours and not to play basketball for a whole week. Others say not to run for 1 week and not to play basketball for 2. I'm obviously going with what my artist recommended but I want to know what others did? Maybe they waited until it peeled instead of listening... show more My tattoo artist recommended me not run for 24-48 hours and not to play basketball for a whole week.
