I’ve gotten seven tattoos in my lifetime and plan on getting many more at some point in the future. Hopefully within the next year or two I’ll get my half-sleeve. But my big sister, who I never in my wildest dreams imaged she would get a tattoo, is getting a tattoo. And that made me feel rather inspired to write about how to care for your new tattoo. Now I generally follow the instructions I receive from my tattoo artist on what to do which is basically the same every where I’ve went. And has insured my tattoos healed quickly and prevented them from become infected. As tattoos are basically just wounds filled with ink that was purposely placed on our bodies to create pieces of art.
I’ve used InkBox before and did a review of it when I first started using this. I seriously love giving myself tattoos using this stuff since it lasts for weeks. I normally use the 10ml bottle and that lasts a long time! I have gone through one bottle after giving myself various half sleeves around seven times. This is my most recent half sleeve that I have given myself. And I seriously love it. I’m not sure if I would ever actually get a half sleeve anytime soon since I can’t afford to get any tattoos at the moment. But I love when I have half sleeves with InkBox. And generally they are roses or paw prints. So I think if I ever get one it’s going to be a combination of the two.
Tattoos are no longer forever. If you decide to remove yours, laser removal technology is probably the best way to go. It’s clean, relatively inexpensive and it brings just a couple of side effects. Patients who choose this procedure may experience swelling or bruising, but this is a perfectly normal reaction and a sign that your immune system is doing its job.
It’s imperative to take special care of your skin after the procedure, to prevent infection or changes in skin texture. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
I love getting tattoos but they can be rather expensive depending on the designs. And all the ones I currently want are way outside of my budget so in the meantime I still want to represent those ideas especially the ones I don’t have finalized. So temporarily tattoos are perfect for that but a lot of companies don’t have free hand temporarily tattoos. But I finally found once thanks to Flesh Blush, a beauty channel on YouTube that was in the Top 6 for NYX Face Awards in 2015. Inkbox has an organic temporary tattoo that is both cruelty free and vegan. You can choose the design in one of two ways: pre-made or free hand.
To start my tattoo story I have to begin with where I got the inspiration for my first tattoo that I got when I turned eighteen, the legal age you have to be in order to get a tattoo without parental consent. When I was in eighth grade I went on a mission trip to New Orleans, which was several years but still shortly after Hurricane Katrina. While I was there helping to run a summer camp for kids in the area, one of the counselors had a faith/hope tattoo on her wrist. And I fell in love with it even drawing my own version for years until I finally got one of my own. Though it wasn’t the one I drew, but one that the tattoo parlor I went to for about half of my tattoos had. Though my body hates literally any kind of needle if I’m watching it, I got my first tattoo. It was not painful in by means. Though I did faint halfway through because like an idiot I watched the needle as it tattooed my wrist.
Tattoos have become a way to express one’s personality and even show off uniqueness and creativity as the most respected value nowadays. Also, the strongest point of a tattoo is the fact that it holds a strong meaning for the person that wears it. Tattoos have become an inseparable part of one’s being, which doesn’t only make them an incredible art form, but a story from an individual’s book of life as well. There are so many different tattoo styles and there’s no perfect style, but some have definitely been a big trend during the course of 2016.
