How To Get A Tattoo You Won’t Regret
We talk a lot about temporary tattoos here on OurVanity but what about all those horrible creation mistakes ruining so many perfectly fine bodies? They are permanent and very hard (and painful) to remove for good. So why there are so many of them? Well, first, people seem to think that they can always remove a tattoo later so they get it on a whim or drunk. If you don’t want to regret a tattoo that you will then have to remove here are a few tips how to get one and keep it.
A Tattoo You Won’t Regret
Know What You Want
Don’t know what you want to get tattooed? Maybe it’s not the best time to do it. You can, of course, ask an artist to help you out if you really want it, or browse for ideas, but you don’t know how long will you enjoy a certain thing, That is why tattoos are better to have some special meaning to you.
This one is probably one of the most important things to do. Don’t go cheap and amateur. Go to a professional artist in a clean salon who will offer you tasteful designs or will realize one of yours. And for the love of all that’s beautiful, listen when he or she recommends doing (or as it more often happens, not doing) something, like getting a small really detailed tattoo, which will bleed a little over time as the skin shrinks and stretches (it’s normal and the effect of a fuzzy tattoo is inevitable).
Don’t Name Names
But don’t get too carried away just yet. Lovers’ names are the worst and most often removed tattoos along with roses, butterflies, and barbed wire. Let’s face it, it has to be something unique and carry the meaning of something really deep and personal. Or at least something that has stayed with you through the years. That way you’ll know it will stay true for the rest of your life.
Choose The Right Spot
The right tattoo location can ensure future employment and save you a lot of headache in case you might want to disguise it. So no face tattoos. Also, if you plan working somewhere where the dress code requires you to have no visible tattoos, don’t do them on your neck, palms, and anywhere else you won’t be able to dress them.
Last but not least, if you must have a tattooed phrase in a foreign language you do not speak on your body, at least make sure it says what you want it to say and you got the spelling right. And what’s wrong with good ol’ English anyway?
