Should I Get A Tattoo?

As tattoos have grown in popularity and social acceptance, you may have confusion "Should I get a tattoo or not". If there is something that you really love, then a tattoo is a great way to show off how you feel. There are various reasons to get a tattoo and not to. I think there is no reason not to get a tattoo, if it's for fun.

There are many reasons why people wish to have tattoo on their body. Some important reasons are listed below;

Memories of loved ones - this is one of the most common reasons to get a tattoo on your body for your lifetime. The loved one may be dead or alive. Whatever, this type of tattoo depicts the love inside you for that person.

Religious - another common tattoo is the religious tattoo. Many people get these tattoos as a sign of their devotion to their beliefs.

Passions - if there is something you are really passionate about, then go get the tattoo on you. For example, it may be a sports team or any game. Personal passions are fairly few.

To express ones personality, they use tattoos.

To indicate membership of a particular group, tribe, or way of life.

To make a statement.

To make their body more pleasing to themselves.

To annoy their parents or relatives.

Just for fun.

These reasons listed above are just common. There may be a different reason for getting a tattoo as people vary. You can hear a different and funny reason from some people who had tattooed or wish to be.

As there are reasons to get a tattoo, there are reasons not to get it too. Some reasons not to get a permanent tattoo are listed below;

According to a recent study, the risk of contracting hepatitis C increases significantly among people who have tattoos on them.

It's very expensive and painful to remove a permanent tattoo once it's done.

Tattoo removal can take up to two years.

The expense of tattoo removal may vary from $3000 to $8000.

Tattoo ink cannot be completely removed.

Multicolored tattoo is nearly impossible or may take 4-5 laser treatments to remove.

Tattooing may result in many skin infections.


Things "NOT TO DO" while getting a tattoo:

Do not get a tattoo in any place that can be seen by others. You may regret it later. Even though tattoos are more acceptable these days, there are still liabilities while applying for a job.

Do not get a tattoo in the name of your boyfriend/girlfriend unless you get a ring on your finger. 99% love relations at present are failures. So, don't do anything stupid that you'll regret in your future.

Do not get a tattoo based on bad memories. Memorializing bad memories is not good for your mental health.

The expense of tattoo removal may vary from $3000 to $8000.

Do not get a tattoo to show that you are a unique individual. If you do so, you will be proving that you are not, like the "other unique individuals."

Do not get a tattoo for any reasons. If you want to memorize anything in your life, there are many other ways like, writing it down, or taking photographs or just remembering it.

Tattooing may result in many skin infections.


The truth is, none of these "DO NOT'S" matters if you really want to get a tattoo, except for people's judgments. If you really want to do it, go right ahead. You are the only one who has to deal with it throughout your life. Try to pick a good and experienced tattoo artist. Make sure to see the original photographs of the work done by the artist you pick. It'll be better to go to someone whose work you have seen in person. Tattoos are great, if it's for fun. But, go for temporary tattoos instead of permanent. You can save a lot of money, pain and regret in future if you do so.
