5 reasons to not get a tattoo.
1. You may regret it
We've all done soemthing we regret right? But at least those mistakes we can generally hide it. A stranger isn't going to come up to us and say, 'Oh, you're the person who ate too many marshamllows at once and choked on them and almost died last year.' No. People don't do that because they aren't psychic.
But, what if you made a mistake, that is forever there for the world to see. A tattoo is permanent. If you mess it up, it goes from being an awesome work of art, to an awesome permanent mistake that any stranger can see. (unless it's easy to hide).
2. You might not like it as much in years to come
This keys into number one. But a bit further down the track. One of those 'It seemed like a good idea at the time' things.
Yeah. No. It was a terrible idea. Just because it looked cool and was trending, does not mean you will love it forever.
3. Terrible artists
Not all tattoo artists are any good a their jobs. I don't even know how they got the job in the first place. But thye did. And that permamnent horror on your body is the result of letting that wannabe get ahold of a needle with ink.
Thankfully this guy managed to save his pikachu with a much better pikachu, from a much better artist.
There are a lot of judgmental people out there. A lot. You get a tattoo and people are going to judge you even more than they do already. That is a fact. But if yuo get the wrong tatto. Oh just watch shit go down.
(according to google this is the most expensive tattoo)
Tattoos cost a lot. Heaps.
I walked into a tattoo and peircing place with a little drawing on my arm, and asked how much it would cost to get it tattooed onto me. One hundred dollars. A hundred bucks just for the tiny thing on my wrist? Serious? I don't want to ask my mother how much the huge work on her back cost.
According to her, her most recent ex spent over a thousand bucks on the tribal on his shoulder. Three sessions, a thousand bucks, a permanent ink stain. Yeah it looks fine. A lot better than it had before Mum convinced him to get it fixed, but serious? That much? Shit. No.
Anyway, those are just five reasons not to get a tattoo. Stay tuned, for shortly there will be five reasons TO get a tattoo.
