Tattoo Dos and Don’ts guide part 3

Things to keep in mind before getting inked, number 2:

Now once you have decided on the design, it is best to keep the design with you for six months to a year and if after that time period you still like it and you still want it, it is probably time to get a tattoo and you will not change your mind about it anytime soon. In other words, if you are in a hurry to get a tattoo, you are likely not in the right mindset to get it at this point in time. There have been some advancements in the ink technology in recent years. A few New York University students came up with ink that actually can fade automatically after I think three months, six months, and a year. Your tattoo can also be removed with a special solution by your local tattoo artist and no lasering is necessary. On that note, lasering away a tattoo does not always work 100% so it pays to really think about it and not just rely on being able to get rid of it after the fact.

What to expect when getting a tattoo, number 1:

First of all, there should be a good vibe between the tattoo artist and you so everything is clear and there is a good level of communication and the artist should apply a stencil to make sure you have the size as well as the angle exactly right. So the first needlework will be the outline which is done with a loaded tattoo gun and a liner needle because this liner needle covers the smallest surface amount, you will probably have the most pain at this stage of your tattoo process. After the artist is done with the liner needle, he will probably rinse your tattoo area and will then use broader needles to add shades to your tattoo.
