Tattoo-what are the risks?

Anybody out there had a tattoo done. Are there risks? Any bad experiences?

Why? The appearance or skin reaction?

Re: Tattoo-what are the risks?

- Diseases like Hepatitis
- Keloids
- Allergic reactions
- Infections
- Granulomas
- Empty wallet syndrome (good artists are expensive)

And a lot of artists make ugly pictures.

Find somebody who is really good at what you want and who can show previous work to proof it, a trampstamp can be done nicely by almost all, but an animal head that looks great is a specialisation and will be F'd up by a lot of them.

I got mine at Tattoomania in Buenos Aires and can really recommended them, it is just a long travel :P

So the risks are maybe more the exception that the rule? And Zürich tattooists should be "clean"and professional?

I would be talking about more a very small pubic tatoo

The google pics to " skin reactions tattoo"are really terrible.

In Zürich you want to make sure that you've seen previous art to know they have the skills, and they should be able to show you their certificates as for being hygienic. And you don't need a special artist if you have a small normal tattoo, you could also google them to get a better impression.

Diseases and such are in proper shops a very rare exception, and allergies can always happen but are rare also, Almost all my friends have at least one but often more or even up to 20 tattoo's and none ever had an infection or such.

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

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 ?

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.

Getting something done in sanskrit which you are led to believe has some clever, deep Buddist meaning but actually translated reads "I'm a twat!"

Mine says "Hello Kitty"

But to be honest, when you get to a certain age, getting a tattoo is not exactly "original", is it? It's a bit tired and clichéd.

Why would you want to inject poison into your body?! I understand you are a nurse. Surely you should know better? Tattoos are in the same league as piercings, drugs and smoking.
