Infection, of any type

Whether the parlour has verification or not of clean and sterilized equipment it really is easier to not walk in the shop than take the risks......

Really appreciate the feedback. Would it put people's mind at ease if the studio really made a hardcore effort in educating and practicing super hygiene in the studio or do you feel the 'infection' risk is just always there?

Education of artists and them relaying that to customers is key...
Sadly there are still kiosks that will have an effect on the brand, they still come up in the news as spreading infections even recently..

I've had tattoos in both Thailand and the UK. I chose my Thai artist based on reputation not only in skill but also in hygiene. Thankfully no issues and I would recommend him to anyone.

Surely if you willing wish to disfigure your body it does not matter which country you choose ?

Many people choose to 'enhance' their bodies appearance. If you set aside the art work and look at procedures that help with issues like stretch mark cover tattoos that blend the skin to its natural colour again or scalp micro pigmentation that assists people with baldness. Not all tattoos serve the same purpose

That is awesome to hear, very positive for the tattoo community here. I takes very little effort to do things in a correct manor. Good to hear you have had positive experiences here.

"enhance"......are you serious :whistling:

Yes, 100% serious, many suffer with depression due to unsightly scars, loss of hair of deep coloured stretch marks so a solution is to use tattooing as a remedy to fix an issue

Tattoos. Personality you can buy. Or, at least it used to be before everyone and their dog got them.

 

I'm sure there are some good reasons to get a tattoo, such as disguising an unsightly birthmark, covering up scars etc.

I agree, cover ups for peace of mind, art, tribal, religious reasons, memories. So many reasons people choose to have them done.

Many I have seen were done while either drunk or moments of stupidity! :crazy:

A spur of the moment tattoo can sometimes be inspirational or a terrible idea and anywhere in between

Stay away from tattoo parlours when inebriated, in fact a good tattoo artist will refuse to work if the recipient is drunk.
