Nowadays, you can’t walk down the street without seeing someone that has a tattoo. In fact, you might even be inked yourself. Because tattoos have now become a part of our everyday life, nobody really bats an eyelid when people are out and about with their tattoos on full display.
Sure, your grandma might have something to say about the doodles on your skin – but you can just give her a hug and hope that she gets over it. Yes, tattoos have really taken off in the past few decades or so with more and more people making their way to parlors across the world to cover their entire bodies with artwork.
They might go full-on tattoo mode and fill up every free area of skin, or they might go for an addition to their appearance that really means something. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be greeted by the clinical smell of antiseptic, the distant hum of the needle, and the occasional “Ahh!” or “Ooh, that hurt!” from those who are also turning themselves into walking pieces of art.
There are some people in this world that love the feel of the needle against their skin, while there are others who vow to never again put themselves in that situation. However, what all of these people have in common is that they’re all told the same information; they need to look after their tattoos.
Tattoo aftercare is vitally important if you want to keep it in good condition. You need to wear sunscreen when you go out in the sun, and you need to know tattoos will always fade over time so you may have to return for a touch-up. Don’t believe us? This is what tattoos look like years later…

Although the picture on the left looks pretty cool, this tattoo has sadly not been able to stand the test of time. Hand tattoos are notorious for fading quicker than those elsewhere, and this person soon realized this first-hand.

If you have a favorite animal, you might want to find a way to solidify that love.

In this case, this person went for the last option and opted to get a lucky lizard tattooed on their body.
