Things to Know About Tattoos

July 15th, 2010

Getting the first tattoo can be a very hard decision for a lot of people. For some people just deciding what design to get is the problem while others may struggle with deciding what colors, size or where to place the tattoo. After all the other decisions have been made, please take some time to pick the right tattoo parlor for you. There are some different things to know about tattoos. 

Most people understand the tattoo ink has been developed to last a life time. The style and design of the tattoo should not be made on a whim. If this is your first tattoo, please make sure this is something you will be comfortable about and proud of for the rest of your life. Never get a tattoo thinking that it can be removed later with the laser tattoo removal process, you should not consider even having the tattoo applied if you are thinking this. Certain colors will also have different meaning for different people to choose. 

A good tattoo parlor can make almost any design that you can think of. Most of the tattoo artists think of the skin like a blank piece of canvas waiting to be developed. But do keep it realistic, the tattoo artist can only do so much. For example, the lower back tattoos can not be placed on your little finger. While the placement of the tattoo is important to you, take the time to consider the loved ones around you. The idea of tattoos today is not as taboo as it was several years back but there are still some people that may be offended by them. Will your job allow you to show the tattoo or will it have to be covered up? Location is important in more ways then one. 

Once the size, style, location and design of the tattoo has been decided, now it is time to find your tattoo parlor. You should take some time in choosing your tattoo parlor. Getting a tattoo is a very personal experience and you need to feel comfortable with the tattoo artist and with the tattoo parlor. If this is your first tattoo, take plenty of time to find a parlor that you feel good in. It is always a good idea to talk with the tattoo artist and make sure you are both in agreement with the work that is to be done. Tattoo safety is very important in todays society. If the tattoo artist is opposed to your ides, that the time to listen. The tattoo artist is the professional and is the one who works with the equipment and the pallet or the skin and knows better then the average person why something should not be done. Listen and learn is a good idea in this situation. If the tattoo artist is not comfortable with the design or placement of the tattoo, you may want to either reconsider the tattoo or the artist. This is the work of the artist and it will be seen for years and they want you to be proud of it;
