7 Things You Didn't Know about Getting a Tattoo ...

I currently have two foot tattoos and found out along the way some things you didn’t know about tattoos. I wasn’t expecting them to be work, rather simply art that makes the body beautiful. It’s a means for self-expression, especially in today’s culture. Here are just a few things you didn’t know about tattoos that I think are worthwhile to know.

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you or someone you know has a tattoo, you may be familiar with the after-care required. Things you didn’t know about tattoos include the fact that the work doesn’t end once the artist puts down the ink. Typically, you need to apply A&D ointment to help heal the skin for a few weeks after, depending on the size. Then, after the skin has begun to heal, you should moisturize it. Non-scented lotion helps the irritated skin soften back to its original nature.
