Tattoo ideas for men!



Tattoos appeared in different parts of the world practically independently and at the same time. Different styles and techniques developed in these places and they today mix and mingle to joy of all tattoo enthusiasts and artists. Find out more interesting facts about tattooing and tattoos.





We may see tattoos as an act of rebellion against the society but that is only one of the many reasons why people wore and still wear tattoos. Tattoos find ways to human skin from purely accidental to necessary and life-saving.





Keep the tattoo clean and dry, and avoid soaking it in water for at least a month (showers are ok, baths are not). If your clothes are likely to rub on it, keep it covered with gauze/clingfilm and medical tape.

Healing times depend on how well you heal and the size of the design. This can range anywhere from around a week for simple, small line designs, to several months for complex, larger designs. Keep following your aftercare instructions for as long as the artist told you to, and make sure the tattoo is kept well-moisturised and clean for a good few months after that, avoiding abrasive skin products.






Getting a tattoo can be very rewarding if you do it right, as you basically end up with a piece of body art on yourself for the rest of your life. Do it wrong, however, and you may find yourself saving money for a laser removal in no time at all. Fortunately, keeping certain things in mind can prevent that. As we noted above, steer clear of potentially compromising designs, use only the best tattoo artists, and ensure that you get a tattoo in a place where it cannot hurt you (beyond the pain during the ordeal of getting it, that is).







Again, flat rates vary. Usually, territory has a lot to do with it. Flat rates tend to be higher in or around the bigger cities, for example, and cheaper in small towns. The average flat rate in or near a US city is about $100 an hour. This already tells you how expensive a large, complex tattoo can be. That pair of wings you may have been eyeing for your shoulders may well run you several thousand dollars, for example, as well as more than one visit to the tattoo parlor. You should be prepared for it.




The cost of getting a tattoo done will vary based on a number of factors. The place where the tattooist works, the size and type of tattoo, and individual shop rules may all play a part in determining the price.
