1. Try a variety of temporary tattoo first. Search online to find some high quality temporary tattoos with great designs, you may find that you want to use these forever instead of a permanent inking. Many of the higher quality fake tattoos out there are made in the USA and look exactly like real tattoos on the skin. Plus, they usually last for 3 to 7 days, even while bathing with soap or swimming in a chlorinated pool.
2. If you must have a name inscribed on your skin, make sure it’s your mother’s name…or someone who you are positive will be a loved by you forever. Your mom will always be Mom to you…but your current lover may not be around in a few years. It will be more costly and painful to cover the tattoo with more ink or have it removed…so think before you ink!
3. There are quite a few serious health risks resulting from permanent tattoos. The extremely dangerous Hepatitis C virus is up six times more common in those who sport tattoos. Health authorities recommend that those who have been inked at a tattoo parlor should also visit a lab. Some of the more inexpensive tattoo kiosks found recently may not be able to afford good sterilizing equipment.
4. Body Piercing was made popular by the PUNK subculture and since then the body-piercing fad has teens and adults of all ages getting pierced in droves. The nostrils, navels and nipples are popular and also painful places to pierce. Tongues have become a favorite piercing site, but beware…the tongue is red due to a huge number of blood vessels. Body piercers usually pray they don’t hit a blood vessel when they ram a large spike through the tongue. A painful and swollen tongue can lead to hemorrhaging, tongue infections and other serious complications.
5. Another common problem is that metal barbells on the tongue often drive dentists crazy because biting down on one can fracture and chip teeth plus lead to a wide variety of mouth problems such as infections and abscesses.
The moral here is that if you think you must permanently alter your body in one of commonly fashionable ways…learn all you can about the potential problems. Use common sense when choosing a tattoo artist or piercer. This is no the time to be looking for a bargain. Trying to save money by using an unprofessional or inexperienced person will very often end up costing you a great deal more in both pain and expense.
