Beginner's Guide to Getting a Tattoo
The main concern when thinking about getting a tattoo should be finding something that
you really like as well as the location on your body. Keep in mind that this will be with you
for the rest of your life, so you must be comfortable with this decision.
Custom tattoos tend to be more expensive and time consuming because they demand the
artist to pay closer attention to the detail and design. In addition, it is a design that they
have never done before. Simple, more common designs are generally less expensive and
take less time.
Another aspect of the design to consider is color or black. Black tattoos are very attractive
because they tend to stand out more on the skin due to more of a contrast. Color tattoos
generally are more expensive but there can be more creativity involved because the
possibilities are endless with color.
The location of the tattoo is key. You must consider some things when thinking of
location. Will others see it easily? Do I want this to be easily seen by others? Do I want it in
more of a private place so only those close to me would view it? Which body parts hurt
more than others?
Generally, places that have thinner skin tend to hurt more. These places include, but are
not limited to, due to differences in all of our bodies, the ankles, head and the lower back.
Less painful places include the upper arm, back of the shoulder and the chest.
