Think before you Ink! Or end up with a Terrible Tattoo
Some people have simply awful tattoos. This should not be seen as a call to condemn the entire idea of getting a tattoo, but it should be a quiet reminder to anyone thinking of getting ink done, that they need to be careful before letting the needle anywhere near their skin.
It may sound like a great idea at 9.30pm one night and look like a horrible mess twelve hours later. There is a reason why most tattoo parlours will refuse to tattoo anyone who even appears intoxicated.
Let’s talk about some of the bad one’s, at least in my opinion.
- Tattoos which depict a cartoon character in an obscene pose.
- Tattoos which take a fairly weak visual joke and stretch it so far that it breaks.
- And then the list just goes on and on!
If you are going to get a tattoo, make sure it is conceptualised when you are stone cold sober. A drunken tattoo will not cause people to think you’re a hilarious, crazy guy, but it might make them think you are a loser.
It is also worth checking out the credentials of the parlour where you go before you get the tattoo. If you have a friend who has a great-looking tattoo, ask where he went and go there. Do not just go to any tattoo parlour, because some are really not very good at all.
If you have one of these tattoos collect the courage and go to a good artist and ask for there help. They may be able to alter and re-ink parts to change the tattoo and the meaning.
