Preventing Tattoo Mistakes and How To Deal With Them After The Fact

Copyright (c) 2009-2017

Thinking about getting a tattoo? Not sure what to get? Well before you go to the tattoo parlor, make sure you read this article about the pro's and con's of tattoos.

By following the advice offered in this article, we could potentially help stop you from making a very bad decision that you could possibly regret for the rest of your life.

We all know tattoo's can look pretty cool, but get the facts, before getting the "tat".

Pro's:

  • One of the pro's of getting a tattoo would be that you'll get alot of attention. This could be considered a con to some people, but mostly for people who don't like to attract too much attention.

  • Tattoo's can be dazzling to look at or even fun to get.

  • Tattoo's may reflect an important person or event in your life.

  • Tattoo's may have a special meaning to you, and your permanent reminder may bring you back to these special thoughts any time you see your tattoo.

  • Con's:

  • The number one argument against tattoos is that they are permanent.

  • Tattoos are expensive.

  • Some people have had painful tattooing experiences.

  • There may be a health risk, if the tattoo artist is unprofessional, and more importantly, not careful to keep his studio and needles clean.

  • Tattoos may reflect negatively on you, when you seek employment or a lover.

  • Taking A Closer Look At The Con's Of Getting A Tattoo

    While that tattoo might seem the right thing to do today, time and circumstance may change your opinion of your tattoo and the decision you made all those years ago.

    Another con of getting tattoo's is the price. The price can vary widely depending on how good the artist and if it's a legal artist.

    Underground artists tend to not be that good, and they tend to be very inexpensive. But remember, you will get exactly what you pay for, and if you are unwilling to pay the rates of a top tattoo artist, you probably deserve the crappy tattoo you will get in return for your money. {wink}

    I have talked to others about their tattoos and the pain involved in the process. Some suggest think it just agitates a tiny bit, or it seems like it's a vibrating feeling. Other reports have said that the skin around the tattoo goes numb. I have never personally spoken with anyone who has had an extremely painful experience, although I know it occasionally happens.

    Make sure the artist you go to has sterile needles and a clean environment! You can contract various diseases from being exposed to dirty needles or a dirty environment. If you see that the place isn't up to par on being clean, then you should leave immediately! Never put your health at risk from someone uninterested in keeping a healthy environment in which to work!

    These days, tattoos aren't the major career killers they once were. But it is advisable that unless you only desire to be employed at the bottom of the income scale, then you should take care to only put a tattoo in a location that can be easily hidden from the public-at-large.

    Tattoo Selection Tips:

    Don't know what kind of tattoo you want to get? But you're ready to enter the rebellious world? Well here are a few tips:

  • The number one rule of getting tattoos is to not get a tattoo of a girlfriend or a boyfriend's name. That's the one mistake thousands of people make every year.

  • If you choose later to cover a bad tattoo decision with a new tattoo, it can come out horrible or great, depending on the tattoo artist you use to do the cover-up.

    Some people choose laser surgery to get a tattoo removed. The process is usually very expensive and it can leave scarring. On the surface, laser tattoo removal is not as expensive as one might suppose, but most doctors require a long series of visits to complete the process. At $250 per session, it does not take too many visits to the clinic to create a very expensive doctor's bill.

    Other people choose to use tattoo removal creams or tattoo removal lotions to fade a tattoo. This option is relatively inexpensive when compared to a tattoo cover-up or laser surgery, but you need to get all of the facts before choosing creams or tattoos. There are certain ingredients you will want to avoid in the fade-away creams and lotions.

    If you would like to learn more about the variety of techniques available for tattoo removal, take a few minutes to review the information available at: http://www.healthyskinassociation.org/

    Either way, getting a tattoo with a lover's name on it is an extremely stupid idea.

  • Tattoos that represent something important to you personally are often the best kind of tattoos to get, so long as that personal meaning will not sour over a lifetime. Tattoos in memorial of someone close to you is one such idea - just don't get something that will offend the family or friends of the deceased.

  • A popular tattoo for parents is their children's names, along with their children's favorite toys to accentuate the name. Also symbols that represent someone overcoming a burden in their life is a popular tattoo, as well.

  • Although a lot of people I know, think that getting your last name tattooed on you is pretty lame, it's becoming pretty popular among younger people.

  • In Conclusion...

    So, keep in mind the pro's and con's of getting a tattoo as you are considering whether to get a tattoo or not. More than anything, you need to remember that a tattoo is usually permanent with long-lasting effects on your life.

    If you are thinking that you wished you had considered these things when you were younger, consider reading the source shown above or visit the link shown in my About The Author shown below.

    I hope these tips have helped you in your journey to the tattoo world.

    One final tip. Always remember: Don't get a tattoo that has the potential of making your mother cry at the Thanksgiving dinner table!
