Side Effects/Danger of Drawing Tattoo On Your Skin

1. You Feel Uncomfortable due to Its Permanence

Tattoos are made by puncturing your outer skin with ink filled needles; this primarily affects the dermis which is the inner layer of the skin. This causes the outer layer to wear out as you grow older but the ink remains permanent on the inner layer.

This means that you tamper with the complexion of your skin and makes it nearly impossible to get back the original color and texture of your skin after tattooing on it. Well, unless you opt for laser treatment , an external therapy which is so painful and extremely expensive, you might want to consider a rethink before you regret it in the future

2. Its Chemicals Can Cause Negative Effects


Toxic chemicals like lead, mercury are used in preparing tattoo ink and when these chemicals are injected into your skin via needles, could trigger adverse effects which turns out to be quite detrimental for your skin as it can result to skin cancer and also permeation of major important organs. You should also be aware that Tattoo ink is exactly the same as the ones used to paint automobiles and used for printers. More findings on the dangers of tattoo ink and what it poses to the skin is still ongoing

3. It Aggravates Allergies

Because the tattoo ink is composed of strong and toxic chemicals, there are chances of developing a major skin allergy or a break out just after you get a tattoo made on your body. And this is true especially if a person is already allergic or has tendency to catch bacterial infections. You could get red rashes which are although common in appearance, can cause extreme discomfort through itchy and irritable skin.

Hence, get an allergy test done before you go to get that tattoo carved. Common allergies that you might develop are dermatitis, psoriasis, scarring and eczema.

4. It Cause Life Threatening Diseases

One of the most significant and often neglected aspects of getting a tattoo on your skin is that it can cause life endangering diseases like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV and AIDS. Mainly due to infected needles and maintaining poor hygiene of the entire tattoo carving process. Giving into pleasure in an attempt to look unconventional and stand out from the crowd sounds cool as long as it does not affect your life. There is no fun in indulging into something that could bring your life to an irrevocable end.

5. Stigma To Your Personality

While tattoos are a beautiful way to express creativity and art, many people in the society are still not very open in their perception about it. Tattoos can attach a stigma to your personality which can make you look rebellious or belonging to a certain genre. This can alter your image when you are out amongst other people. Sometimes it does serve to boost your social image among friends or people thinking “out of the box” especially painters, musicians, stage performers etc.

At the same time, it could also lead to adverse effects on situations where a more conventional and formal approach is required. So choose wisely and envision the repercussions it would have on your image.
