Tattoos are inked permanently on the body skin. Most people use tattoos to express their nature or to feel artistic. Others have tattoos done in remembrance of someone or something they love. We discuss what one needs to know about tattoos and the what to do before getting a tattoo.
Discussion one, how Can I pick the right tattoo design?
Individuals having tattoo for the first time are not able to pick a tattoo design. They just visit a tattoo shop and request to have a tattoo but no idea for the design. Think over and over again; remember that this will be a permanent mark on your skin, and you do not want to end up with ink marks that you do not like.
Discussion two, do tattoos hurt?
This question is asked severally. A number of needles will be running through the skin, so the answer is; the process hurts. An individual determined to have a tattoo inked permanently inscribed on the body doesn’t worry about the pain. It may seem unbearable for those having a tattoo for the first time, but tolerable on the second, third or even forth tattoo. However, some find the process painful even on their tenth tattoo.
Dialogue three, how much does it cost to have a tattoo.
Several aspects determines the cost for getting a tattoo. Different tattoo experts charge different costs, depending on their location and level of experience. A tattoo shop at uptown areas where several celebs and artists have their tattoos done will definitely be charging high costs compared to a tattoo shop located on downtown sides of the city. The shape of the tattoo is also another determining factor where a big tattoo will consume more ink and time, attracting high charges unlike a smaller tattoo that will consume less ink and less time.
Discussion four, how do I care for the tattoo?
Caring for a tattoo is very crucial so as to avoid getting any infections after the tattoo has been inked on the skin. Maximum care on the skin is vital as the skin’s normal condition has changed due to pricking and use of ink. The tattoo artist should be able to advise the client how to take care of the tattoo until it heals. After having a number of tattoos from different tattoo shops, you may realize the artists have different way of taking care of the tattoo; something not to worry about as the tattoo artists have experience in caring for the tattoos. As part of the tattoo caring regime, use an antibacterial cream to prevent occurrence of any infection. You may want to avoid wearing tight clothes that cling to the tattoo area until the tattoo heals.
