Why should you get a tattoo? You could express yourself in a way like never before. However, it is not something you can just jump into. We’ve covered everything you need to consider before doing this.
It will sting
People say that tattoos hurt for a reason. Depending on your tolerance for pain, it can be unbearable. Therefore, you need to figure out whether this is what you want to go through or not.
If you want one but are afraid of the pain, write down where it will be. Areas that are thinner hurt the most, such as the wrist or ankles.
The size of the piece is also something to consider. If it is large or very intricate, the artist cannot tattoo it in a day. Want to stick a needle in you for more than a month?
How much time do you have?
In line with the point above, you may not be the best off getting a big tattoo because you are very busy. A piece that may take a week to complete can take months. Scheduling appointments to fit into your schedule can also be difficult, making the sessions virtually impossible.
Research, research, research
Tattoos are permanent. Anything you’re not a fan of has to be removed with a laser, which is very expensive and painful. You are therefore advised not to work with just anyone; quality counts. You are also not advised to skimp.
Don’t be afraid to go out of town to work with someone. There may be more talented artists in your neighboring town.
What do you want done?
Because the piece stays with you forever, not you you just have to think about who you work with but you have to think long and hard about what you want done. You can’t go wrong with anything personal because you always have a memory or loved one with you.
