Obviously, since TattooRemovers.ink excels at laser tattoo removal in Sherman Oaks, CA, it’s in our interest for people to go out and get tattoos, and, better yet, get tattoos that they end up growing tired of or not liking. But we also like to make sure that patients and the general public alike know what they’re signing up for when they get a tattoo. We all know that getting a tattoo is a huge commitment. Here are some quick tips and scenarios that are pretty good indicators that maybe you shouldn’t go through with that tattoo. If you can read through this quick guide before you go through with getting your ink done and still feel 100% about getting that tattoo you’ve been meaning to get, then more power to you!
Probably best not to get a tattoo while drunk.
If you’re drunk, just don’t do it. Make a quick deal with yourself. Make sure that every tattoo idea you have is thought-out. If you get the inspiration one night when you’re out with your friends, maybe sleep on it. If you still want that tattoo in the morning when the light of day shines on your bright ideas, then go ahead and get that tattoo.
You’re not 100% sure about what you want.
If you don’t have a clear vision for your tattoo, then what really is the point? If you’re sifting through the tattoo books at the shop, then assume twenty people or so have the same tattoo you land on. Tattoos are much cooler when they say something about you and your unique experience. Spend some time conceptualizing what you want your tattoo to be and where you want it to go down the road.
You’re not 100% sure about where you want it.
It can be argued that where you get your tattoo is equally as important as what you get. If you don’t know exactly what you want and where you want to get it, then you probably shouldn’t go through with the tattoo just yet. Also, make sure that you inquire about the pain level because each body part is going to react to getting a tattoo very differently.
Imagine yourself at 50 or 60, looking at this tattoo in the mirror.
It might be powerful to imagine that tattoo that you just have to have on your 50 and 60-year-old body. It might put things into perspective. But also remember that everyone you know who has a tattoo right now will also be an old person with a tattoo if they all play their cards right. So you won’t be alone. A couple of decades from now there are going to be a ton of geriatrics with hip tattoos.
You have a low threshold for pain.
What’s the point of making yourself go through any sort of trauma if you have sensitivities that others don’t? None of us are wired completely the same. If you do think that you can withstand needles jabbing into your skin without getting queasy, then bring your best friend along and grip their hand tight when you sit through that tattoo.
You can’t afford it.
Even if you get a discount and you find yourself pinching the last of your pennies, there might be better ways to spend that hard-earned money. Then again, if you’re set on it, maybe those few duckets in the piggy bank were meant to be immortalized in the form of some sweet body art that you can wear forever and ever, or maybe get tired of and visit TattooRemovers.ink in order to get them removed.
You feel pressured or left out.
Don’t get a tattoo to fit in with a crowd, or, worse yet to impress a girl (unless she’s completely awesome, then go ahead and do it to impress that girl). Don’t follow the pack when it comes to tattoos. Of course, tattoos aren’t permanent, especially at TattooRemovers.ink, where the Cutera Enlighten laser works on dual wavelengths to remove a variety of tattoo shades.
You’re worried it might affect your job.
If you’re second guessing that tattoo because of a current or potential employer, then it’s a good idea to rethink that ink. Don’t put your livelihood in jeopardy over expressing yourself through body art.
