You’ve decided that you want to get a tattoo and you’re determined to go through with it, but you’re worried about a lot of things.
How much will it hurt? How long will it take? Will it wind up being something that you love or something that you hate?
More and more women are getting tattooed, but because women think differently than men, many women second guess themselves so many times when they go to get a tattoo that they wind up talking themselves out of something they really want.
If you’re looking to get your first tattoos, for girls, here are a few tips that may help.
Realize firstly that it is going to hurt, there is no getting around that. Tattoos are needles piercing the flesh – they have to do that in order to get the ink under the skin, and any time you pierce the skin the nerves send signals to the brain saying that it hurts.
But what may surprise you is that most tattoos for girls do not hurt as much as you may think. Many women describe it as the pain they get from a bad sunburn, and while it may be enough to say “ouch” a few times, most women are able to get tattoos without crying.
If you’re truly nervous, ask if you can have a small tattoo done first before you get a larger one. You may have to pay a set price for even a small tattoo, but it is worth it to know if you can handle the pain or not.
Have something small, yet significant, tattooed somewhere safe on your body, such as your upper or lower back.
The best thing, though, is that now that so many women are getting tattoos, it’s easy to find more and more beautiful tattoos for girls everywhere that you look!
