When it comes to beauty, there are few lines we won’t cross. We do what we can to keep up with trends. We go all out with makeup hacks which are sure to serve. We even spend hours in front of the mirror trying to find our next look. And, in some cases, we go all out with permanent beauty additions which take our style to the next level.
We are, of course, talking about tattoos. Whether you want your makeup tattooed or your arm, recent years have seen this permanent beauty method gaining in popularity. Most of us now have at least one tattoo somewhere. And, done right, these can compliment any outfit. Done wrong, and you could end up looking like a ruined canvas.
If you’re thinking about taking the plunge, then, you’re probably curious about how to get tattoos ‘right’. That’s why we’re here with a beauty-lover’s guide to a tattoo which is sure to work with any outfit.
Pick a body part you can easily hide
This may seem a strange point to start on. If you’re going to hide your tat, why should you bother getting it in the first place? But, bear with us. The fact is that if you want a tattoo which suits every outfit, a hideable option is your best bet. We aren’t saying you need to get this on the bottom of your foot. But, opting for your wrist or upper arm may be your best bet. That way, you can get it out when you’re dressing down or heading into town. Yet, you can still cover up when you’re heading for an all-important business meeting. It doesn’t get much better than that for a tattoo which suits every occasion. Before you take the plunge, then, think long and hard about where you make your mark.
Choose your parlor carefully
Next, you need to think a bit about the tattoo parlor you opt to go with. You wouldn’t head to any old salon, would you? Well, taking time here is even more vital. Remember that, whatever this place does to you, you need to live with it forever. Make sure, then, to look at every parlor’s credentials and past work. When you head in to book up, get a sneak peek at their health procedures. In an ideal world, you want to see cleaning gear like this red soap, and plenty of sterile equipment. Only then can you be sure that the tattooist in question is going to do your design real justice.
Keep it subtle
It’s also worth noting that you should aim to keep your design subtle. As with makeup, less is often more in the world of tattooing. If you go all out with a whole arm design, you’ll struggle to ensure it suits your look. Plus, something like this is sure to pull the eye from everything else. By comparison, a classy number on your wrist can set off your look, rather than bulldozing it altogether.
