Tattoo On the Brain? 3 Considerations to Make Before Pulling the Ink Trigger
- Posted on: May 15 2017
What you put in and on your body are going to have lasting effects on your overall health and appearance. Although Dr. Kristin Tarbet can perform laser tattoo removal with a technology called Blink Tattoo removal, it is a fairly lengthy and complex process. To help prevent you from making a mistake before you even pull the tattoo gun trigger, this article will discuss three lengthy considerations every person should make before they get a tattoo. Read on to learn more.
One of the biggest things that we run into with our patients at our office is that they don’t like the placement of their tattoo. For instance, as a trend that was once sexy in the 1990’s, tramp stamps are a mistake most girls want to have permanently removed. Before you get a tattoo, really think about the placement of it. Is it going to be a part of your body that will naturally sag with old age or is it going to maintain it’s shape and texture? These are all considerations to make regarding the placement of your tattoo.
Is It Trendy?
In the world of tattoos, things like birds and small symbols are currently on trend, but that could go out of style quickly. One tattoo that may be trendy and cute today is going to look out of style and tacky in just a few years. Before you decide on a tattoo design or lettering, make sure that it’s something unique to you and that won’t be considered “trendy.”
Is It Just a Phase?
If you are considering getting a tattoo, but you just aren’t sure if it’s the right thing for you, don’t do it. If all of your friends are getting tattoos and you feel like you’re missing out, this isn’t reason enough for you to get a tattoo. As a fairly permanent decision, you need to be 100% confident in getting a tattoo. As a suggestion, wait a full year from thinking about getting a tattoo to getting one— if after a year you are still excited about it, then get it. If, however, you have grown out of the idea after a year, you know you made the right decision to wait.
Even though Blink Tattoo removal is a great way to get rid of the pigment in your tattoo’s, it is a painful and lengthy process. If you are new to the tattoo world, make sure to take into the considerations above. To learn more about tattoo removal or to schedule a consultation, contact Dr. Kristin Tarbet today!
