Body Art is not without Risk!

Tom fell in love with Wendy and in an impulsive moment he decided to get a tattoo. All the decisions he made were wrong. Don’t be like Tom. If you want to get a tattoo #think:

  • Getting a tattoo should be a well thought decision and not a spontaneous one;
  • what the tattoo will depict should be considered carefully and the decision should not be impulsive;
  • it is of the utmost importance to choose a tattoo studio, which will follow all proper hygiene tools and not the first one you find available;
  • tattoos might cause adverse effects on the skin;
  • removing a tattoo might be painful and is expensive, and finally,
  • tattoo regret is common.
