Well when you are drunk, you are pretty much out of your control and so there is no say to that. But, if you have been thinking since a long time to get one done, there are a lot of factors which you should consider. Remember: Tattooing is a form of ‘body grooming’ which could lead to ‘body shamming’ if haven’t dont with caution. There are various simple factors which you already might know about and then there will be certain very important factors which you will have to follow no matter what since they are really important and necessary.

The tattoo which you wish to get inked on your body needs to have a concept or needs to be something that will really mean a lot to you. If you are just thinking to go for random design, there are possibilities that you might regret it later on. When you get a tattoo of something you really can relate to or you really feel happy about, you know that it will keep you happy for a really long time.

#2- The Tattoo Place:

The tattoo parlor or the tattoo artist from whom you are getting your work done should be an experienced person. His or her work should be neat and clean and should not look like he is working out of pressure or is just doing it out of a certain kind of burden. After all, it is something which is going to stay on your body forever, right? Who would want to risk it anyway?

#3- Colored or Not?:

This is something that most of the people are usually really confused about before getting a tattoo done. Do you want your tattoo to be colored or do you want it to be the simple tattoo? Colors tend to fade away with time so many people do not really prefer. And if you wish to get a colored one, you need to make sure you get it done from someone who has a really good record of having done good and the best colored tattoos in the past.

#4- You Will Not Be Able To Work Out:

If you are a gym rat and someone who cannot give up on working out for a long time, you might forcefully have to do so once you get your tattoo done. The place where you get your tattoo done will be swollen for  a few days so you will have to wait for your tattoo to heal. You as well have to cut down on a certain food items like you cannot have anything which has a lot of starch in it and other various things. It varies from a particular tattoo artist to the other.

#5- Are You Ready To Take The PAIN:

Many people are confident about getting the tattoo done until they go to the tattoo parlor and even before the artist starts his work, they hear the noise, freak out, and run away. It does hurt you a little bit. No matter what people say, it will sting you a bit. It as well depends on the place where you are getting the tattoo done. If you are getting your tattoo done somewhere on the bone and where there is less of your body muscle, there are higher chances of your feeling the pain.

#6- Get The Tattoo Which Suits Your Personality:

One of the tips for not regretting your tattoo later on will be getting a tattoo which will suit your personality in and out. If you have something really related to you on your body you will obviously love it more.

#7- If You Are Dedicating a Tattoo:

If you are getting a tattoo for someone else, watch out. You might want to think like 100 times over it. Getting a tattoo for someone means dedicating something permanent on your body to them. If it is about your family, you might not have to think so much about it. But otherwise, you would really want to give it a good thought.
