Don’t get a tattoo just to get a tattoo. That’s not cool. Mmmmkay?!
Does it hurt to get a tattoo?
For some, it can be compared to getting stung by a bee repeatedly. After so many stings, you’ll become kind of numb but you are right to think that it will hurt when you get your first tattoo. However, it’s worth it if the tattoo has a deep rooted personal value… not just something you think looks cool at the moment.
Will you regret getting a tattoo?
The tattoos most often regretted are those with names, tattoos that can’t be easily covered when and if you need to present yourself professionally, and tattoos that can be found offensive or distasteful. The most common regret is a low quality tattoo. Your tattoo artist is responsible for communicating the consequences of any tattoo you choose, and for providing quality work and after care instructions. You are responsible for making a grown up decision over whether or not you will want to live with that artwork on your skin for the rest of your life… and for taking proper care of any tattoos you do get.
