Two Things That Should Be Thought About Before Getting A Tattoo

When it comes to thinking about getting a tattoo there are a lot of mistakes that people can make. This is why it is so very important to do your research and think about all your options before you go out and get inked. Tattoos are something that should be taken seriously and is something that should not be decided one night while hanging out with a group of friends. Never pull a “Hey wouldn’t it be great if we all went out and got a tattoo” when you are hanging around a bunch of friends and alcohol is involved. Deciding to get a tattoo is a decision that should be made sober and is a decision that should be given a lot of thought too.

There are several mistakes that a lot of people make when it comes to getting a tattoo. One of the most common mistakes is that people don’t get the correct size of a tattoo. While bigger might not always be better when it comes to a tattoo a lot of people tend to get tattoos too small. This can cause a problem because the quality maybe poor or when you get older it might just look like a blab of a mess. So don’t go too small but don’t go too big either. Also the location on your body is a key factor of your tattoo. Don’t get a really small tattoo on a big part of your body, it will look out of place.

A second common mistake people make is that they don’t give their tattoo design too much thought. It is a good idea to keep your options open and don’t just pick out the first butterfly you see or whatever design you are wanting. Give it some thought and look at several designs then make a choice.

    Hi Ashley,

    Great points! I have a couple tattoos and for two of them, I forced myself to wait almost a year before I got them. (The first one didn’t require thought at all….it’s my late-dad’s name in filipino scripture). I hear people say “you make me want to get one.” It shouldn’t be impuslive….you really do need to sit down and think about it…then forget abou it….and think about it again to see if you still feel the same about it. And research, research, research!
