Tattoos and BJJ Training

We have a student who just got a tattoo on her shoulder, and is worried about training with basically a large scab on her back. 

Since I have never gotten a tattoo (yet), I am a little out of my league here. I have seen other team members train after a day or so, but make sure to keep the tattoo covered while they just drill and sit out, or go whole hog and spar as well. 

I know it needs to be kept moist, and some people cover their tattoos in Aquaphor, or cover it in Saran wrap. 

Anyone in the peanut gallery have any suggestions for jiu jitsu training with  a new tattoo?
