Remember – there are a few things you can do when getting a tattoo to minimize the chances of regretting it later down the road. Even though we are in the business of laser tattoo removal, we are happy when you are happy with your tattoo. We step in when people aren’t happy with their ink and want to make a change with affordable and effective laser tattoo removal.
That being said, let’s talk about location. This is important. The wrong location can lead to major tattoo regret down the road. There are many things to consider when thinking about the location of your tattoo. Do you want your tattoo to be visible 24/7 or do you want the option of hiding it? What if you do someday decide to remove it, will location matter? What about pain? Or body changes as you age? Here are three locations that we generally recommend avoiding.
Face/neck – As a general rule, you may want to avoid the face and neck when getting a tattoo. These areas are extremely difficult, if not impossible, to hide. Some places won’t hire you with visible tattoos, so any career moves or future plans will need to be taken into consideration if you desire a face or neck tattoo. One exception, for those with longer hair, may be the nape of the neck. In addition, these areas are quite sensitive and you may experience some increased pain or discomfort should you ever choose to remove them.
Stomach – You can easily hide a stomach tattoo with clothing. We suggest avoiding stomach tattoos because of the changes that can happen to your stomach over time with weight gain or loss. When skin stretches or tightens, tattoos can change shape and become unrecognizable or distorted. Considering getting pregnant someday? A stomach tattoo may not be the best idea.
Inner Lip – Easy to hide, trendy, small… what is not to love about the inner lip tattoo? Inner lip tattoos run the risk of leaking or blotchy pigment and may become unrecognizable faster because the area is moist all the time. We suggest avoiding the inner lip area.
