If you’re going to get a tattoo, not only have to worry about the artistic part. Remember that it is a procedure that invades your body. The tattoos are usually done with a needle that pierces the skin (you prick) repeatedly to deposit ink on the surface layer of the skin. So, with each needle prick is inserting tiny drops of ink under your skin. The result is likely to bleed and feel pain.
Many lovers of tattoos began in a home. But if you ask them, most certainly tell you they would not do so. Why? First, the tattoo may not be aesthetic if you have a good artist to do so. And second, because it involves many risks to your health because they generally do not have the right tools, the place is not necessarily hygienic, and inks are highly recommended.
