What makes a tattoo long lasting is its deepness. Remember that a tattoo is also considered a wound. Just like any other scrape, slice, cut or pierce on the skin, a tattoo is at risk of diseases and infections. If you are prone to getting keloid, you should avoid having a tattoo.

Tattooing involves injections under your skin and viruses like Hepatitis B and C and HIV could be transferred to your body if sterilization and precautions are not done. Moreover, removing a tattoo is very expensive. Depending on factors which include design and size of your tattoo, removal could cost a considerable amount of money than the tattoo itself.

When having a laser tattoo removal, there are also some side effects. The area where the tattoo is could be scarred, infected and prone to hyper-pigmentation which can cause the area to grow darker than the normal skin or else hypo-pigmentation, making the area lighter than the usual skin color. The colors of a tattoo could become ugly and dull in later years. When you lose or gain weight, the tattoo could be misshapen. Some people will look down on those who have tattoos despite its popularity and there are also some companies that do not hire people with tattoos. Therefore, if you really like to have a tattoo inked on your body, make sure that it is in a place that can be covered easily or in a hidden area in your body.
