There are several things you have to consider before you get a tattoo. The first thing you have to consider is whether or not this is the right choice for you and your body. Tattoos are permanent. They are not something you can choose to take off or get rid of should you decide that you no longer care to have a tattoo. It’s on your body forever. If you do decide you want a tattoo, you should also consider the fact that some tattoos simply cannot be removed no matter how much money you pay for a professional tattoo removal. It’s also a long and painful process.
The second thing you must consider when thinking about whether or not to get a tattoo is the cost. Tattoos are not necessarily expensive. Some are inexpensive and some are very costly. In the grand scheme of things, it really depends upon where you live, what color tattoo you want to get, and what size tattoo you want to get. Obviously, the larger your tattoo is the more expensive it will be. Tattoo artists are independent contractors. This means they get to set their own pricing guidelines when it comes to tattoos. This is why it’s so important you speak with your tattoo artist prior to getting a tattoo to see what the cost will be to you. Some are different. A friend who got her tattoo in one state might have paid way more or less than you will pay for one the same size and in the same location.
Additionally, the detail work that goes into creating your tattoo is going to have a significant effect on the price of your tattoo. For example, if you want a painting replicated on your arm, it’s going to be very detailed, and probably very expensive. If you want a single word or initial on your body, it’s not going to require any special skill. Therefore, it will likely be much less expensive than several other types of tattoos. Expect to pay at least $100 for your tattoo, but probably much more.
How To Make A Temporary Tattoo?
Before you decide to get a real tattoo, you can make your own temporary tattoo to wear around for a few days to help you make the decision whether or not a permanent tattoo is right for your life. These temporary tattoos are not the kind you find in the store bubble gum machine. These are a bit fancier and more established. One way you can do this is to get online and find a specialty site that works on temporary tattoo designs. These sites allow you to use their technology to create your temporary tattoo and order it. You will then apply it at home and wear it for a few days to see how you like it.
You can make your own temporary tattoo at home by purchasing decal paper online or in a craft supply store. This paper is the kind that is used on store-bought temporary tattoos. It lasts a few days or a few washes; whichever comes first. You will need to do nothing more than create a temporary tattoo design on your computer. You can do this in any art program or even word, if all you want is to have a tattoo that’s an initial, quote, or word.
When you have sized, colored, and finalized your temporary tattoo design, you will then print it out on your decal paper and apply it carefully to your body in the place you want to see it for a few days. It’s not going to last a long time, but you don’t need it to. All you need to apply your faux tattoo is a bit of water and a steady hand. When you remove the decal paper from your skin, do so very carefully to prevent your tattoo from ripping or not sticking to your skin completely. It’s very simple to make your own temporary tattoo. In fact, with the right equipment and paper, a child could easily make his or her own faux tattoo at home.
What Does The Bible Say About Tattoos?
One question that is often asked about tattoos is what Christianity and the Bible have to say about body art. Some people believe that tattoos are a mark of the devil. Others believe that tattoos are a sign of bravery. Some aren’t really sure what to think about tattoos and the idea of body art in general. That’s why they begin asking questions and researching what it is the Bible has to say about tattoos. If you’re considering one for yourself, you might want to know just how the Bible views body art before you make your decision, as it’s a very big deciding factor for many.
In the Bible, God tells his followers they must not put markings upon their bodies. This, however, is in the Old Testament. The New Testament does not say anything about tattoos and body art. However, in the Old Testament, the Bible reads, “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves,” (Leviticus 19:28). Since believers today are not required to follow the rules set forth in the Old Testament, it is widely believed that tattoos are considered acceptable in the Christian society due to the fact that the Bible has nothing to say about them.
Some people simply do not believe tattoos are appropriate or Godly because the Old Testament says it’s not something that people should do to their bodies. Your own personal opinion is going to vary from that of others based on your level of belief and where you stand in your faith. Technically, the Bible does not say anything in favor of or against tattoos, but your own personal opinion could differ based on your preferred testament and your personal religious beliefs.
