• I'm turning 16 next week and I can get a tattoo I don't know we're though?

    Best answer: I have several tattoos but didn’t get one until my early 20s. I’m in the Uk so we can’t be tattooed until at least 18 (legally - I know plenty of people who got them aged 16/17 and regret them now). You may disagree / not want to hear it but you really are too young to make such a permanent decision. Make sure... show more

    You may disagree / not want to hear it but you really are too young to make such a permanent decision. Make sure you really want it and then wait at least another year and be sure you still want it then. Also if you are unsure neither your arm nor your neck is a good placement. Both will be forever visible and even if you love it and have no regrets you may need to cover up sometimes. Some employers might require it and you don’t want to limit your options so early on. Once you know what you want to do and are sure that visible tattoos won’t harm your prospects then I say go for whatever you want but..
    Arm= ow
    Neck = ow x10 (thin skin!)

  • How bad does getting a tattoo hurt and what does it feel like?

    How bad does getting a tattoo hurt and what does it feel like?

    Best answer: The most common feeling is - scratching your sunburn/warm scratch. It's more uncomfortable than pain for me and I have an ok pain tolerance. The arm is by far the easiest area, more shoulder outer shoulder area and inner arm. Bicep is sensitive and outer arm you feel the needle grinding against it which can... show more

    Hello I just got my 2nd tattoo on Saturday. This one is large and on my upper back. I had no problem with the small one on my wrist but this one has been a pain.

    Hello I just got my 2nd tattoo on Saturday. This one is large and on my upper back. I had no problem with the small one on my wrist but this one has been a pain. Due to the location of my tattoo and how it goes up my shoulders, the scabs are regularly moved around and stretched all day, every day. This morning (4 days after getting inked) I was applying the CVS version of Aquaphor. On my shoulders and anywhere else that is regularly moved, my fingers were covered in pieces of scabs. I did it gently but the scabs were flaking off and sticking to my fingers. Is this an issue? Am i damaging the tattoo?

    I have a tattoo of a flower on my ear. I wash it frequently and use vitamin E oil as a lotion, as told. But I’m forming a blister at the bottom of my ear towards the lobe and it’s red and has a mild burning sensation. But the area around the tattoo and the actual tattoo Is completely fine. So I don’t believe it’s infection. I think it’s the dryness of always patting it clean and build up of oil that drips down but I’m not sure. What do I do?

    Best answer: I'm all about freedom, so you ought to do what you want. At the same time, some things we do have long-term and far-reaching consequences. A tattoo is one of them.

    At the same time, some things we do have long-term and far-reaching consequences. A tattoo is one of them.
    In the name of current fashion, you would be permanently disfiguring yourself with an image you like at your age now. What would the 30 or 40 year old you think? And your future mate? And your children and grandchildren? Your future employer or your future employees?
    If you love tattoos, then you probably will have no trouble ignoring those who don't. Many people love them!
    Obviously, tattoos do not appeal to me at all. I'm not the majority, I'm sure, but I doubt I'm alone.

    Best answer: They fade very quickly when you start to purposefully fade them.
    The best way is, obviously, getting it lasered off. The benefit of going to a professional is that the majority of stick and poke tattoos aren't quality tattoos, there isn't much ink in the correct layer of skin even though it may look like it on the surface. You will need only a few sessions to completely remove it. Just one session should be enough to fade it enough to cover it with any other design.
    Of course the DIY treatments aren't as effective, but they can work if you are ok with scaring. A stick and poke tattoo will fade quicker than a professionally done tattoo with at home removal methods, but this process is never very fast. At home removal methods can also get very gross very quickly, its important to keep the new wound you created clean to prevent infection and scar tissue buildup.

    I am a first year university student set on pursuing a career in medicine, considering getting a cultural tattoo on the back of my hand (about thumb length - from wrist to the base of my index finger). As a half Polynesian, half european New Zealander I believe that this sign of embracing my pasifika culture may allow me to connect to that particular demographic of people - who may be my patients in the future. However I am aware that a hand tattoo is not easily concealed. To people in the medical field out there: do you think getting this tattoo would be a good idea for me? Would my opportunities as a med student and/or work life in the future suffer due to this decision? I know scholarships are available for Pacific Islanders in the health sector - so perhaps this ink could show dedication to my culture. Online I see a few articles about medical professionals with tattoos (the general opinion is that it is frowned upon), but I wonder if the fact that mine will represent a cultural identity makes it more acceptable?
