Deciding Where To Put Your Tattoo Could Have Big Consequences

For most people, the most important part of the tattoo decision-making process is what to have inked onto their skin. Tattoos are a permanent marking, so whatever you get, you’d better make sure you are willing to live with it for life; otherwise, you may be coming to us for tattoo laser removal services later!

Another big decision is where to place your tattoo on your body. This is important for many reasons. Chiefly, the area you choose will impact the pain you will experience during the procedure, since certain areas of the body are much more sensitive than others. Also, whether or not your tattoo is visible could affect how others judge you and even whether or not you get hired.

If you place a tattoo in a highly visible location, such as the face, neck or hands, you may be at a disadvantage when you sit down for a job interview. There are also many jobs that do not allow visible tattoos (including some major police departments), which could hurt your employment prospects further.

We’re not in any position to judge what type of tattoo you get or where you put it on your body. We do however, meet many people who later regretted getting highly visible tattoos. They come to us asking for tattoo laser removal, which costs time and money.
