A recent article posted on WebMD noted the increased popularity of tattooing among younger individuals. Given this increase, it becomes important to have a clear understanding of the procedure and the risks involved. When thinking about getting a tattoo, here are a few things to consider:
Choose a facility carefully. Make sure the establishment is licensed in tattooing.
Keep your tattoo simple. Smaller tattoos are easier to remove should you desire to do so.
Insist that you view the tattoo artist remove sterile instruments from the envelope.
Make sure that the tattoo is placed in an appropriate location on your body. If you should decide to have a tattoo removed a scar could be visible.
If you experience a great deal of redness or soreness, contact a physician immediately.
