Fashion Of The Skin

Updated on January 20, 2016

Fashion Of The Skin.

There's a lot of mixed opinions & views about tattoos. Some view them as art, love them, think they're beautiful. Some view them as sinful, "trashy", etc. Some think they have to look a certain way. My opinion about them, is they are a piece. We love art. Some people wear it, some people hang it up, some people make it. Hence "tattoo ARTIST". Here's some things to think about before getting a tattoo.

First, you'll get the stares, the whispering, the ones who openly tell you you look stupid. People will want to touch your tattoo. Some will ask about the meaning, & placement. That's another thing to think about before getting a tattoo. Think of where you want it, how much space it will take up, why do you want it, etc, etc. People will also ask you where you got it, who your artist was.

Now, we're going to talk about how to chose a good artist. Remember, if they charge more they probably have better quality work. I've seen too many people complain about the prices of a tattoo shops, then go their cousins, or some ghetto shop & they get infected, or the quality of the tattoo is just awful. Shaky lines, crooked, spaces missing. Please go to a high quality shop. Do some research. Because some will look good, but the artist won't the best.

I have Pickachu ( character from the anime show Pokemon if some aren't familiar) on my left forearm. It was done in a shop, but the quality of work isn't as good as it should be. I also have one on the top of my right foot, although I did get that one done for free, done in my kitchen, done by a friend of mine. Again, not the best. Never get one for free. (Unless you know this person is very good.) My lesson as been learned, & I have passed it on to you guys.

Some tattoos don't absolutely have to have a meaning to them. If you saw a picture online & you thought it looked cool, & want it as a tattoo. Then get it. If you're one of those people who does research about a certain picture(like me), because you're just curious, then by all means. But, don't let anyone tell you has to have some deep meaning to it.

Again, it is art. Have fun with it.

I have about five tattoos. I got my first one at 18(that's the Pikachu one.) The my second one at 19, its on my left thigh. Then I got one the foot tattoo at 20. Then, I got one on my right wrist at 20. The, I got one my left shoulder blade at 20 also. Exciting year for me. But, I've gotten the stares, rude comments, "that looks dumb." "Why would you get that." I walk way, or just ignore it & go about my business. Someone will always have something to say. So, don't worry about it too much.

Remember, DO RESEARCH ABOUT THE SHOP & ARTIST. If you take anything away from this article, just remember that. Most important. Have fun with it.
