Tattoo artist Chris Riddle offers the following advice for people contemplating body modification on his website:
“Be ready for negative reactions from your friends, family members, and coworkers. They are bound to ask you why you’ve got a new tattoo. They’ll ask if you need to have it removed and how big the damage is. Some people just don’t know and the response they give is, well, that’s fine. They don’t want to see you be unhappy!”
If you’re not happy with your tattoo, Riddle advises to consult a doctor or dermatologist.
Tattoo artists often have patients with serious health conditions. A tattoo is no different.
“A tattoo is a medical procedure and they must follow medical regulations,” explained Riddle. “If they choose someone with a severe allergy (like an allergy to tattoo oils), it’s likely to negatively affect the performance and appearance of the tattoo.
“If you’re under 18, have a medical condition or are a woman, you need to talk to someone, a licensed medical professional.”
The Bottom Line
It’s not just the appearance of a tattoo that could affect its performance. The actual appearance and texture of the tattoo is also important.
The top image below is a typical example of a bad tattoo.
A tattoo that appears as though it has been created by a machine or computer.
The bottom image below looks at an example of a good tattoo.
If it isn’t obvious how it’s created, you could have your finger tattooed and it’ll look much better than if you were the artist.
If you are under 18 years of age, a tattoo artist should contact you in the event you have medical problems or problems with vision. You can also get a free consultation with a doctor or a dermatologist from the National Association of Tattoo Artist.
If you are interested in a tattoo, don’t shy away from a piercing. But if you are concerned about your piercing, consult a doctor or the dermatologist first.
