I know you are in love. I know about the butterflies in your tummy. You think it will last forever; it’s cute. But if you are over 17 years old, then you already know that relationships don’t usually last forever and sometimes love turns into ugliness and the butterflies in the tummy turn into aches in the chest. Should I say more?

It’s the same as the name. Ideologies and beliefs change over time; they are just steps in the route. When we look back at our past beliefs, we see some as silly and childish, but we lose all respect for others. I mean, I’m sure, some Nazis thought it’s so cool to have a swastika tattoo. Where did this get them? Jail!

They indeed are very much on edge. So you need to give it some thoughts. Would the colours fit your natural skin tone? How are they going to match with your facial features and eye/ hair colour? Is it too many colours? Etc.

Your tattoo is an open wound, for at least ten days, so sun exposure and saltwater are not your friends; they cause inflammation and make the ink fade out. Also, wounds heal better in cold environments, so winter is the best time for it.

Because nothing is worse than a messed up tattoo, you go to a cheap place, and you give them an excellent dragon design, and they give you a goat tattoo, it sucks, and it happens. The cheaper, the riskier.

Lots of people are going to offer you alcohol to minimize the pain but don’t. Alcohol increases bleeding tendencies which are dangerous for both you and the artist. Also, when we are high or drunk, we tend to make foolish decisions.

As we said, Tattoos are open wounds for at least ten days. It needs regular cleansing and good covering. Use anti-bacterial and antibiotic cream as described by your professional artist. Eventually, Love your tattoo. Embrace your decision and DO NOT INK SOMEONE’S NAME, seriously guys; this is the most important one. After healing always use durable sunscreen if you’re exposing your tattoos to saltwater and sunlight because this combination makes the ink fade out, not just during the healing process but forever.
