There are countless reasons for getting a tattoo. The factors that influence decisions to get inked either come from inside us, we call these psychological influences, or outside of us, we call these social influences. The tricky thing with tattoos is that tattoos are meant to be permanent and the things that influence us change greatly throughout our lifetime.
There have been a few articles floating around lately that suggest getting a tattoo based on your zodiac sign. According to one particular article, choosing a tattoo that aligns with your zodiac sign will ensure that your tattoo “best supports your astrological archetype and cryptically embraces your inner truth.” The article offers location, placement and design recommendations for each zodiac sign. Here are some reasons why following your tattoo horoscope may lead to regret later on in life.
Many of the designs suggested in this article are designs that are currently trendy. Tattoos that follow trends are commonly sought for removal. Tattoo removal providers follow trends to see what kinds of tattoos they will be removing in the coming years. The tattoos recommended in this article include watercolor tattoos, geometric tattoos, and tiny tattoos.
We strongly recommend choosing a design that you love over something that everyone else is rocking. Read our article for more on how to choose designs that minimize tattoo regret here.
Location also plays a role in tattoo regret. Choosing a tattoo that can’t be covered up can lead to tattoo regret. The location of the tattoo should be carefully considered in terms of visibility and changed to body composition over time. Many of the tattoos suggested by this horoscope are in locations that are commonly sought for removal.
We strongly recommend avoiding tattoos in highly visible areas or tattoos on places that may change shape (think stomach tattoos and pregnancy). Read our article for more on location and laser tattoo removal.
While not everyone follows astrology or will come across this horoscope-based tattoo idea, we still think it’s important that your tattoo be uniquely you. It is bad enough running into multiple people with the same outfit as you at a wedding. You don’t want to have that experience with your new 2018 tattoo.
