If you ask a kid, if he will get a tattoo once he/she gets older, most chances are that they would agree and start discussing some cool design ideas of flames etc. But many times, the same child changes his mind because many people would tell him that tattoos aren’t good for the long run, and many people don’t like them; initially narrowing your job employment chances. But the truth is that it’s not that bad…as long as you get decent tattoos so that everyone accepts you with it. As long as you have a nice, decent, not-too-overboard tattoo somewhere on your shoulder, wrist etc. you don’t have to worry at all about what the world says.
Many people suggest not having a tattoo because; it will look nasty once you’re old. But face the fact, your skin will look gross once you’re old whether you get a tattoo or not. So this isn’t a reason to not get a tattoo, as you will regret not fulfilling your wish when you had the time. But yeah, it isn’t a good idea at all to get a person’s name or portrait inked on you. Because you don’t know if that person is going to be with you for life, and if he/she leaves you, you will be haunted by memories every time you see that tattoo.
Another thing you might want to keep in mind when thinking of the disadvantages of tattoos in a long run is that, the risk of tattoo infection isn’t limited to some weeks after the tattoo, but you might catch infection even after many years of having that tattoo. Research shows that some ink colours are much more reactive and get infected easily. So, choose after a lot of research and also discuss this with your tattoo artist. Then only go ahead because your tattoo won’t come out after some days, it’s going to be there forever, and if it goes wrong…it will trouble you all your whole life. Also, tattoos fade away as time passes by, you can get it redone, but it is better you get it done by the same artist from whom you got your tattoo done in the first place. Getting your tattoo retouched means you will have to get inked again on top of the original tattoo.
So, think properly if you want a tattoo or not, then you can discuss designs and get a tattoo done. But get it done properly, on a proper place and don’t go too crazy over it. Because you don’t want to look like a complete gone case which creates a problem for you.
