Baby name tattoos just like any other tattoo art tend to be permanent. They are meant to be there on the skin forever.
Tattoo removal is not quite easy and cheap. In most cases, it takes a series of visits to tattoo removal clinics. In fact, it is often more expensive to remove a tattoo than getting one. However, there are also a myriad of good reasons why some people want to have their tattoo or a couple of their tattoos removed.
One survey showed that 17% of tattooed people regret having it. It could be that some of them have made a mistake in choosing the design that they would be happy for the rest of their life, or they must have mistakenly got it in the wrong part of their body. People’s taste changes as they get older and what they got at a young age may turn out as a source of embarrassment when they get older or get married. Had these people spent a lot of serious thought about it, regrets would have been avoided.
In most cases, baby name tattoos cover a larger area than other tattoos because of the fact that the design will include the baby’s name, birth date and sometimes, the birth place is included. But generally, it depends on the size of the design. It could also be smaller as some parents want it small enough to be hidden in places where tattoos can create controversies. Because baby name tattooing includes intricate details and it’s all the more important that it should be professionally done to reduce the possibility of regrets.
Getting baby name tattoos or any tattoo art, for that matter, should be well planned and should be done right by a professional tattoo artist. Unfortunately, if it’s not done right, it could be a big reason for regret.
Luckily today, with the advancement in tattooing equipment, getting one is a lot less painful than it was before. This could likely increase the interest of new parents to get one with their little one’s name, birth details and the image that symbolizes their baby inked on their skin. Sure, it’s now safer to get it, but remember, the options of removing it are still limited.
So, to avoid regrets and costly mistakes, make sure you get the design with a significant meaning in your life and that you’re likely to be happy with until the coming years and get it done right by a professional tattoo artist.
