Why do so many people assume that young girls with tattoos are just following trends and will regret it later?

January 27th, 2011 No comments

Personally, I don’t have one, but I’m contemplating it.

I’ve heard so many people say, "Oh, it’s just a fad, and you’ll regret it in 10 years." I know many girls my age {20} or slightly older that have tattoos they love. They did not get them because they wanted to jump on the bandwagon, but because the tattoos were special and meaningful to them. I also know many women {ages 30-60} with tattoos they got in their early 20’s who say they wouldn’t be the same without them and don’t regret them in the slightest.

Why do so many people assume that tattoos= future regret?

the people who say that are idiots

they are just cynical…

they think, that because they dont like tattoos, they are ‘not following a trend’
when actually, there is no trend… tattoos are for those who really want one

im getting one soon! and im not gunna regret it

Where can I find some really sexy tattoo designs for girls?

January 27th, 2011 No comments

It’s great to get you started, but when you start to get ideas, draw up your own. Or have a tattoo artist draw one for you. Tattoos should be unique. I would die if I saw someone with the same tattoos as me. I’m very proud of them, and have drawn them all myself.

Girls Tattoos Recommends – Suicide Girls

January 11th, 2010 No comments

Well now I have a new addition to my must have girls tattoos sites and this is it – Suicide Girls

Suicide girls is not your normal tattoo site but is a social site for the alternative lifestyle.

This site has the hottest girls with the hottest girls tattoos – it’s fantastic.

If you’re into the tattoo scene then you have to check this out – it is huge with over 300,000 members and comments like:

“A nation wide art-sleaze phenomenon” los Angeles Times

“The meeting place for people interested in
alternative lifestyles” New York Times

And

“Post modern pin-up girls for the
alternative nation” Boston Phoenix

The site is packed full of Photo’s of girls tattoos, videos, groups on every conceivable topic, chat rooms, webcams – you name it and it’s here.

I gotta say suicide girls is not for the faint hearted and meek among you – but if you live it large then get over there, you can become a member or apply to become a model and get paid.

Talk about inspired – well I’m now getting my 3rd girls tattoo sorted – and I’m getting bold – will upload a photo when it’s all done.

I LOVE SUICIDE GIRLS – 11/10

Why Do Girls Tattoos Fade

November 25th, 2009 No comments

Why do tattoos fade?

Unfortunately this is something that is inevitable – all of your girls tattoos will fade at some time. You may be lucky and it may take 15 – 20 years or you could be very unlucky and your dream tattoo could start to fade in as little as 5 years

There are quite a few reasons why your sexy, cool girly tattoo will start to fade and the rate in which it will fade – these are the main ones.

Sunlight

Now you should know by now that sunbathing is very bad for your skin so you might look great with your tan now but it’s going to age you and your Ink. The sun is probably plays the largest role of all in fading your tattoo – so slap on the sun block.

Basically the sun burns the epidermis and the dermis and becomes damaged – this can cause the pigments to break down as its in the dermis that they are lodged.

Certain tattoo pigments in girls tattoos are more prone to breaking down in the sunlight and these are usually in the magenta range of purples and violets and white pigments particularly don’t like the sun much.

Poor Quality Inks

Now technique obviously plays a big role in weather the ink stays put after your tattoo is finished, the quality of the ink used also plays a vital role. Don’t forget that the tattoo ink is a foreign body in your dermis and your body will attack it to try and rid itself of it by flushing it out. If the ink can’t stand up to the pressure the body puts on it then it will fade much quicker – use a decent reputable brand of ink.

Bad application of the tattoo

As said above – technique plays a vital role – the tattoo ink needs to be inserted into the dermis at the correct depth. Too shallow or too deep and it’s not going to last as long.

Aftercare (Important)

You need to look after your tattoo once it’s finished – see my section on tattoo aftercare.

But just to reiterate Don’t pick the scabs, Don’t go in a swimming pool because of the chlorine, stay away from steam rooms and don’t go sunbathing – not until your girls tattoo is fully healed.

Do moisturize your tattoo once healed – keep your skin in good condition and your tattoo will look good for longer.
