Well I have just looked at allergic reactions to tattoos. Terrible. I can do without that.
Odds are very small, and most reactions are also small.

The internet is great at showing the worst that can happen.

What, exactly , is the stereotype you have in your head of "person with tattoo(s)"?

Re: Tattoo-what are the risks?

So, no actual real-life clue then? It's ok, you can say. How narrow-minded.

... i have lots of friends with infection-free tattoos. It's all in the skill - and superlative hygiene - of the artist.
I'd also add that it's partially to do with how well the "tattooee" follows instructions on care of the site until it heals fully.

That's the thing, not for me. I find them and the idea of them just not something I like. Piercing is the same.

Re: Tattoo-what are the risks?

Be careful what colours you chose, they might not match the outfit on some days. In your case your underwear.

I think they can look amazing. The art of them... sublime. A poorly done one though... ugh. Awful. But the beautiful unique ones created by skilled artisans... wow.

Piercings can be great. Depends where they are I suppose. Love a curated ear.

Anybody out there had a tattoo done. Are there risks? Any bad experiences?
The risk is that you will still be a visually unappealing old man... except now with an even more undignified tattoo.

I would be talking about more a very small pubic tatoo
. . .
Have you come under some strange peer pressure to have a tattoo on your, er .. , well .. , pee-er ?
Or is the 'tat' in omtatsat a hint of this ambition ?

That's it, choose carefully. I, for one, would be reluctant to get a tattoo out of fear that I'd grow out of my "cool phase" pretty quickly, but you know, if this is what you feel like doing or this is your thing, why not.

Look up the meaning of pubic. Its not what you think

And if I say pubic I mean pubic

Re: Tattoo-what are the risks?

What are you thinking of getting done?
A friend of mine has some great coloured Steam Punk and '30s sci-fi.
