Tribal Tattoos Really?

Posted on: July 25th, 2012 by admin

Innovative Tribal Designs

In the world of tattoo designs there are thousands of potential tattoos to choose from.  Each and every day, there are new designs added to studios and online tattoo websites.  Tattoos are becoming more and more popular these days, making the designs all the more important.  Although flowers and other designs are popular, tribal designs seem to be among the most common.

The one thing that sticks out with tribal tattoos is the innovation. Tribal tattoos feature unique artwork, with most being more or less solid black with no other colors.  Tribal can have several different meanings as well, as it all depends on the image that the artist is trying to bring to life.  Tribal can either be a design that the artist already had or the artist can take your feedback and do the entire tattoo freehand as he goes along.  Experienced tattoo artists can normally do great work freehand – as it gives you the ability to make changes as he goes along.

Some of the most popular designs with tribal tattoos include skulls and letters.  Unique designs are also very popular, especially those that wrap around the arms or the back.  Tribal can be put virtually anywhere on the body, just like any other tattoo.  Depending on the tattoo design you have in mind, it may take quite a few hours before the artist has finished.  With the larger tattoos, you may need to come back to have the work finished.

Before you decide to get a tribal tattoo, you’ll first need to decide on the design.  If you don’t have an idea in mind, this can take you quite a bit of time.  You can look online for some ideas, or look at some of the already made designs at your local tattoo studio.  If you see something that you like but you want to be a bit more creative, you can always add to the design.  For example if you see a tribal skull design that you like, you can make it bigger or change just about anything in the tattoo design that would make it unique for you.

If you want the entire tattoo to be unique and creative, you can always have your tattoo artist draw the entire tattoo from scratch.  You can give input as well if you want, to ensure that the design matches what you have in mind.  Drawing a custom tattoo can take anywhere from an hour to several hours, depending on the size and detail of the tattoo.  Tribal tattoos that have a lot of detail can be a bit complex, both to draw and to tattoo.  No matter what you have in mind for your design – you can rest assured that it can be accomplished with tribal design tattoos.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Posted on: March 22nd, 2012 by admin

Research has shown that nearly half of those between the ages of 18 and 40 have a tattoo or several tattoos. The problem here is that a majority of those who have tattoos have later decided that they don’t want them anymore. The biggest complaint to tattoos is dissatisfaction, which has led to a recent increase in tattoo removal. It’s been proven in the past that women research their removal options more than men – due to the fact that men have less of a stigma when it comes to tattoos.

Often times, the ink that is used during tattoos can lead to infection, simply because the type of ink being used isn’t regulation for tattoo parlors. Clean equipment is also essential with tattoo parlors; otherwise someone can end up with hepatitis B, C, and various other infections. There are many serious diseases and other sicknesses that can occur if a tattoo parlor doesn’t keep their materials and parlor clean.

In the event of infection or if someone just doesn’t like their tattoo, there are ways to get them removed. Skin grafting and dermabrasion are good examples of tattoo removal, although the most popular and most common these days is laser removal. Laser removal is the fastest and by far the most preferred. With this surgery, the laser being used will zap the metal ions that are found in the pigment of the tattoo, fracturing the ink into very small pieces that the body can easily dispose of.
