Tattoo Link of the Week 3: Tattoo Mistakes

LA Ink or temporary tattoos?

The TV personalities and tattoo enthusiasts/artist on TLC’s LA Ink know a thing or two about tattoo remorse.  Our link of the week has the crew count down the top five mistakes people make when getting a permanent tattoo.

#3 and #4 from TLC’s list ring especially true as problems that could have been prevented using a temporary tattoo.

– Getting a tattoo of your lover’s name sounds romantic, but you’ll regret the curse you scribed across your body when the ink outlasts the relationship. If you don’t have a history of romantic relationships that last forever (most people don’t), you may want to go with something less permanent. It’s only $89 for 1000 custom temporary tattoos at Tattoo Manufacturing. Those should last about 8 years – about the same as the average first marriage that ends in divorce, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

– Getting a tattoo on impulse is another common mistake; once again, you can prevent the remorse by trying a temporary tattoo first. That way, you can test run the artwork for a fraction of the cost and with much less commitment. If you decide you really really like it, then you can go ahead and have it permanently attached without that voice in the back of your head pestering you with worry.
