Tattoos are subjective. Whether you like them or not, they are a popular form of physical self-expression. But are they really worth the money? Do they only offer temporary satisfaction?

Tattoos have grown in popularity over the last few decades and many young people are jumping on the trend. Some teenagers even get tattoo bookings gifted to them for their 18th birthday. There are so many different types of tattoos you can get to make yours as unique as you’d like. From the variety in designs, colours, size and other aspects, there is really no limit to the art you can have on your body. But will these people regret the tattoos they get?

Different tattoo artists will tell you different things – some will do anything you ask them to, while others will really encourage you to think about certain designs. While some artists encourage people to get a big tattoo, as you are less likely to get bored of a masterpiece on your body, others encourage smaller tattoos as a safer option. Many teenagers also resort to getting smaller tattoos as they can be placed in harder to see areas and can be covered if needed. A tattoo can be used to really express someone’s personality or something meaningful to them on their body. However, other people get ‘trendy’ tattoos that they will most likely regret if they mean nothing to them.

Either way, people should be encouraged to think about tattoos, no matter what their age or what they want done. Tattoos should be seen as a work of art and self-expression, rather than something to get bored of when you get older.
