Before You Get a Tattoo, You Should:

1. Choose A Professional Tattoo Artist
2. Be Absolutely Healthy
3. Know The Risks


Have You Ever Liked Anything Forever?
This is the question! Think about it. Is it a person, a life statement, a memory, a pet?
Whatever it is the tattoo design you want to tattoo must be meaningful to you, otherwise it doesn't make any sense. As time passes you might get bored of the tattoo and want to remove it. Tattoo removal is a long and expensive method so it's not a good idea. While tattoos are fashionable and exciting, you just can't pick some design that is interesting to look at. You are going to have your tattoo permanently on your skin for your lifetime. So you should choose a design that has meaning to you.

How to Choose my Tattoo Artist?
Not enough people take the time to research the artist that is right for them. There are so many amazing artists, so you don't have to go with the first artist you come across. Nowadays most artists have online portfolios you can look at, but the best research is the tat work you see in reality. Seeing a tattoo in real life is the best example of what your tattoo artist may be capable of.


Tattoo Scarring
Tattoo Scarring is possible and it happens when the tattooed area is not treated properly. The healing aftercare treatment requires proper advice from a professional artist. Following your artist advices is the only way to stay away from scars. Scars from burns, surgical procedures, accidents or other incidents may make you feel bad and frustrated. Some doctors claim that scars can be removed by laser treatments, surgeons... 

Tattoo Scabbing
A new tattoo will flake and peel during the healing process and may even scab a little bit. To prevent a new tattoo from overly scabbing and thus possibly losing color and clarity, the first two weeks is the most critical time to carefully follow aftercare instructions. Whether you use an aftercare product suggested by the tattoo artist, an over-the-counter ointment or an unscented hand lotion or moisturizer, you must keep your tattoo moist. If it dries out and starts cracking, where it splits is where you are going to see scabbing.

Itchy Raised Tattoos
It's funny when the tattoo will itch intensely and sometimes it's hard to avoid this. After 2 or 3 days, the tattooed area starts to peel and remove the first layer of the skin. Don't be panic - that's normal and it means that tattoo is healing. Itching could be dangerous and it could cause loosing the tattoo color. 

Showering with a New Tattoo/Leaking Plasma Issue
Caring for a new tattoo properly for the first several weeks is critical to maintaining the appearance and health of the artwork. Because of the way the ink is applied, a fresh tattoo is an open wound, and must be allowed to heal properly. Improper care can result in scarring or loss of pigment. Tattoo aftercare is a multiple-step process, but an important element in that process is learning how to take a shower with a new tattoo. Showering will help your tattoo heal quickly and maintain its appearance.

Tattoo Ink Poisoning Symptoms
Today, tattooing is a very popular and trendy practice. Just the same, it remains a subject of controversy in terms of health hazards and tattoo ink poisoning. It seems that no matter how sophisticated tattoo technology becomes, there are still many who believe it to be a dangerous practice. There has been much controversy around the topic of tattoo ink poisoning...

Getting a tattoo is a popular method of self-expression, but it also comes with some health risks. Understanding the current concerns and risks about tattoo ink will help you make a better-informed decision about decorating your body.
