"...If you have a family member or friend that has had previous experience in having tattoo's, then have them go first before you have one. While doing this being a friend or relative, you can ask to go up with them and check out your future artist. You can check for cleanliness, his procedure and even how he puts his/her customer at ease. A good tip for deciding whether or not the artist is right for you. 5)Research the procedure that must be taken ..." Read review

Tattoo for you??

Advantagescan be something that means a lot to you

Disadvantagescan mean nothing

"*** Intro Let me start by saying, I have two tattoos, one is just below my knickers line and is about the size of a 50pence piece, it’s a small ‘A’ in swirly lettering and below it is the outline of a small heart.

Tattoo for you Sir... Review with images

AdvantagesLooks good...personal choice

So this is just some advice from me from experience and things I have picked up along the way. I have had four tattoos ..." Read review

Seahorsey seahorsey where will you hide?

Advantagescan look great and is a talking point,

Disadvantagesits for life so be careful, slightly painful and uncomfortable while it heals

"Ok I chickened out of the tongue piercing idea, but did get the tattoo done. Tattooing is obviously something that needs alot of thought, as once its done the only way to get rid of it would be lazering and its an expensive and often ineffective way to hide them leaving scars worse than the original tattoo. Personally I had been considering getting a tattoo for the last 4 or 5 years, my ideas swerved between, seahorses, an octopus or tribal ..." Read review
