Contrary to belief there is a lot of knowledge that needs to be known when it comes to picking out a tattoo, getting a tattoo and taking care of a tattoo. Getting a tattoo is serious business and it is no walk in the park. You will most certainly experience some sort of pain and or discomfort when getting a tattoo and people need to be ware of this. Of course different people have different pain tolerance levels so the amount of pain you fell will be up to you. Also the location of the tattoo will also determine the pain level. However, the most important thing that one needs to know about getting a tattoo is how to take care of it properly, because just like a cut your tattoo can get infected.
One of the biggest no no’s when it comes to getting a tattoo is going swimming and or submerging your new tattoo in water. Many may think this isn’t a big deal but it is. But you should avoid hot tubs, swimming pools and soaking in bathtubs of water while your tattoo is healing. After all a tattoo is a surface wound on your skin and your skin is susceptible to infection and public pools and water are easy sources of bacteria. Thus, allowing unwanted bacteriainto your new tattoo, which will then cause an unwanted infection. Also if you are in water for a long period of time or soaking your tattoo in water it can cause the scab to come off the tattoo prematurelyl cause your tattoo not to heal properly. So keep in mind if you are planning on going to the beach or some other place where water activities will be involved refrain from getting a tattoo ahead of time or while you are on vacation.
