Four Things To Consider Before Getting A Tattoo


People may think that tattoos are this new phenomenon, pushed to fame by millennials but nothing could be farther from the truth. Tattoos are as old as time itself. People have been etching tattoos on their bodies for a long, long time. Tattoos are all the new rage in people of all ages and if you want to jump on this bandwagon too, there are a few things you need to know first. If you are on the fence about getting a tattoo bodysuit, here are five things you need to consider before you make that decision.

1. The content of the tattoo matters a lot: While the possibilities of the things that you can get tattooed on your body are endless, names are often the most common tattoo designs. For most people, getting a tattoo of their significant other is the most common option. Sometimes these tattoos are well-thought-out decisions while other times, these tattoos are the results of drunken escapades. Before getting anyone’s name tattooed on your body, you need to make sure that the other person is comfortable with that too. Getting a tattoo is a big commitment, one that you cannot get rid of super easily. Getting rid of a tattoo is not only a super painful procedure but an expensive one too as you need multiple sittings to get a tattoo lasered off. You need to make sure that the other person feels the same way about you before you decide to get their name etched on to your body. Getting someone’s name tattooed on your body is a big decision and not one you can make on a whim. You need to be sure that you absolutely committed to the person in question and have plans to be committed to that person for the rest of your life. Otherwise, you’ll just be left with a permanent reminder of a person that is no longer a part of your life. If your tattoo is on a part of your body that cannot be covered up at all times, you also need to make sure that the tattoo is not offensive to other people. Getting tattoos of hate symbols like the swastika is a terrible mistake as not only is it in bad taste but can also create a bad first impression for you wherever you go.

2. Think about how the tattoo will affect your employment options. While in an ideal world, it should not matter to other people what you decide to do with your own body, that’s sadly not the way how the world works in real life. In real life, having a visible tattoo can put some hindrances in your career. We live in a world where some people still consider tattoos as a visible mark for bad behavior. With such viewpoints, these people often discriminate against people having visible tattoos. If you’re looking to work in more conservative job fields, you can expect to get a few doors closed in your face because of your tattoos. So before actually getting inked, you need to think hard and long about your future career prospects. If you are looking to get hired as a teacher, for example, some schools might disregard your capabilities and focus more on your tattoos instead. However, that does not mean that all employment opportunities might be closed to you once you get inked. You are more likely to get berated and judged for your body ink in places run by older people rather than places run by the younger generation. Secondly, as long as your tattoo is not offensive or does not include cussing in visible places, it should not be much of a problem for you to maintain a steady job while having visible body ink. New studies have even found that having tattoos can actually lead to better job prospects in certain situations. It all depends on what the content of your tattoo is and it’s placement on your body.

3. Consider if you’re ready for the pain that comes with getting a tattoo. Anyone who has ever gotten any part of their body inked can tell you in detail about how much it hurts getting a tattoo. Your skin gets pricked with a needle over and over again to inject ink into it so you can just imagine how that’ll feel. A tattoo is not for you if your level of pain tolerance is very low. Even if you want to get a tiny design on your wrist or your ankle, it’s not going to hurt any less to have a needle pierce your skin. Another thing you can also expect while getting a tattoo is that there will be blood. With all that piercing going on, you can expect to draw a little blood. If you get queasy at the sight of blood, then getting a tattoo is not for youThe level of pain also depends on which part of the body are you getting the tattoo on. The areas of your body where there is more concentration of flesh are the best parts to get tattoos on in terms of pain tolerance. As the needle would be directly piercing the flesh and far, far away from hitting bone, you won’t feel as much pain as you would normally do in other parts of the body. One of the most painful places on your body to get a tattoo is your rib as there is little to no flesh there.

4. Consider the cost implications of getting a tattoo. Getting a tattoo is not a cheap task. The more elaborate the tattoo, the more money you might have to spend on it. There are three factors that determine the cost of the tattoo. The first one is the size of the tattoo. The bigger the tattoo, the more time, ink, and expertise the tattoo artist is going to have to spend on your tattoo. Getting a landscape tattooed on your back would cost certainly more than getting a simple named etched on your arm. The second thing depends on how detailed the design is. Even if both tattoos are the same in size, the cost of a celebrity portrait tattoo would differ vastly from a simple cartoon cat too. The more intricate the design is, the more work there needs to be put into it and the more it’s going to cost you. Lastly, the cost of a tattoo also depends on the type of ink used in the tattoo. There are multiple types of inks that can be used in tattoos and all of them come with their own special price tag. Another cost you need to consider while getting a tattoo is the cost of up-keep. Tattoos tend to fade over time and if you need a tattoo that looks fresh at all times, then you will have to pay for re-inking the tattoo.

The Final Thoughts
After you have looked at all these factors and decided that getting a tattoo is a good decision for you, you need to conduct research into your tattoo artist. The place where you get the tattoo is extremely important as it needs to be safe and sanitary. With a tattoo, you are changing the natural disposition of your skin so you need to pay careful consideration to the place that will make these changes.
