Getting a Tattoo? A Simple Guide for You
Pros & Cons
"I'm getting a tattoo!" - You beauty...Let's go before I change my mind...wait!
When having your skin inked there are a number of things you need to consider first:
- Do you seriously want a tattoo? - they are permanent (well almost)
- Where do you want your tattoo to go?
- Your tattoo design?
- Who's going to be your tattoo artist?
- And whether to use a tattoo numbing cream or not.
While tattoos can be beautiful and meaningful, they can also be the opposite of what you're expecting; terrible and meaningless. It is, therefore, important to invest ample time in the preparation period.
You should consider if you are serious about getting a tattoo. It's gonna be part of you , who you are - don't take this lightly. Ask yourself why you want the tattoo and if you are ready to have the same tattoo for the rest of your life.
A tattoo is not a joke (though humorous tatts can be awesome!) - but rather a big deal since it is a permanent ink imprint on your skin. The only way to get it out is through a painful and expensive surgical procedure or laser. If you ask me, it's not worth getting a tattoo only to have it removed through surgery later.
As many would say a tattoo could break or make your life. While many would be cynical of this statement, tattoos have indeed broken homes and lives. If you are teenager, a tattoo gotten to spite your parents could cause a breakout between you and your parents.
