Tattoo No-Nos – For You And For The Artist

Filed under Tattoo Tips

There are certain lines when it comes to getting a tattoo, lines which must not be crossed either by you or by the tattoo artist. These exist in order to protect health, dignity and decency, and crossing them will only end badly. The following are some facts about the no-nos of tattoo art.

You should know when getting a tattoo that the artist is reliable. There is some chance of blood seeping out through the skin which is pretty much unavoidable. For reasons of hygiene and health, a good artist will wipe this away as and when they see it.

Getting a tattoo on your face may seem like an interesting thing to do at the time, but be wary that in many countries most artists will refuse to do it without a lot of persuasion that you are ready for the repercussions. Many employers will simply refuse to employ someone with a facial tattoo – especially in public-facing jobs. No, you shouldn’t judge by appearance. But people do anyway.

Tattoos on hands and feet are similarly unpopular with artists, but for different reasons, although hand tattoos are also highly visible and a tattoo artist does not want to be the cause of your unemployment. The other reason is that our hands and feet get through a lot of work, and during the three month period that exists between getting a tattoo and it truly healing that work can lead to the tattoo rubbing off. If it came off all in one then that’d suck, but in actual fact it is worse – it comes off in bits and looks appalling.
