Face Tattoos. Would you get one? Chances are most of you said ‘no’, but people are getting them and they’re getting more popular. So what drives people to ma…

I don’t care what anyone does to themselves, but I do try to ensure those
more out there kinds of decisions are made with the party involved being
fully informed of any risks or possible consequences.
It is a fact, regardless of all the care in the world, that patients
contract infections in hospital surgeries, so it’s fair to say, the same
risks exist in a Tattoo parlour no matter how careful the tattoo artist is.
A friend recently made the mistake of getting a tattoo without researching
the risks or possible consequences, afterwards, she was made aware of the
risks; what she learned terrified her and has really impacted on her
emotional health due to the concerns and regrets she now has.
She had no idea that on top of her emotional regrets, there was a risk of
HIV, AIDS, hepatitis, herpes and a plethora of all kind s of other
infections. No one told her the inks used were never intended for use “on”
the skin, let alone to be “injected into and under it”.
These inks are industrial inks which no health authority anywhere on earth
has ever approved.
These inks contain acids, toxins, plastics and mercury, they are a time
bomb, which, after the tattoo is applied, your bodies blood flows through,
this eventually destroys the liver and due to the carcinogens in the inks,
also put the wearer at long term risk to cancer.
Although people may think, given the fact tattoos have been around since
time in memoriam, that tattoos must be risk free; what they don’t know, is
that in the past, natural dyes were used, but due to fading, operators now
use completely unapproved industrial inks which do have both short term and
very long term health risks.
It’s no surprise the in thing in Hollywood at the moment, is the removal of
tattoos, because the fad is over, but also, because the wearers are trying
to remove the long term possibility of cancer.
Unfortunately, some of the removal processes are just as risky, depending
upon the colour of the inks used in the original tattoo.
It must also be acknowledged, life is a long time, fads come and go, but a
tattoo is there forever, and given the undeniable stigma surrounding
tattoos, it’s no surprise, that on women, they are known as “tramp
stamps” they take away the decent image of even the most beautiful girl,
they are known to be worn by people with low self esteem, and women who are
Respect is something we all need in our lives, and our self respect, or
lack of it, is another thing tattoos take away from us.
Briefly and by no means the full story, tattoo’s began as an ownership mark
on Egyptian slaves, this was adopted by the authorities for prisoners, and
then by men who were really only trying to portray a dangerous image,
wannabe tough guys, frauds, usually men of weak character. On women, they
were used by pimps to mark their whores, showing they were his property,
hence the term, “tramp stamp”.
My advice when it comes to fads or fashion is that fads and fashions come
and go, so it’s unwise to ever do anything that is permanent, because it
won’t match future changes in fads or fashion.
A necklace or an earring you can remove, the same applies to a dress or
it’s style, so why would anyone who enjoys keeping up with fashion,
permanently disfigure and degrade themselves, to then be stuck in that
moment in time forever?
Tattoo’s eventually become a permanent reminder of an act of
thoughtlessness and youthful ignorance more than anything else, but what
has also been proven, is that any tattoo the wearer claims is about someone
else, is really only about themselves and how they want others to see them.
Anyone contemplating something as permanent as a tattoo, should try wearing
a fake tattoo for a good long period of time and they will quickly learn
they have classified themselves as low life’s and losers whom decent people
really do not want to associate with, who employers do not want
representing their businesses; they should try the fake tattoo to learn how
people begin to treat them differently, and I’m sure in time they’ll never
regret not getting one, but if you do get one, you will most likely regret
it for the rest of your life.
Some say Tattoos on women are sexy. I do understand how a tattoo can
create in the observer, the impression that the wearer is sexier with the
tattoo, but that’s only perception, it’s to do with the attraction of the
forbidden, the wearer is seen as sexually promiscuous, as a result, the
male or female observer, who was seeking easy gratification, would have
their sexual instincts ignited by the fact their target had a tattoo, so
yes, I can understand that misguided view, but once again, in the case of a
female, it only supports the “Tramp Stamp” view people from all walks of
life have of tattoos on women.
It is most obvious, a tattoo is a bad move, if people want to remember a
loved one, they can have that persons name engraved on a nice piece of
jewelry, avoiding any risk to their health.
Above everything, no matter how much people try to deny it, is the negative
way you will be forever perceived, I mean one day you may wish to be a
“Clean Skin” to get some great opportunity, or even some respect, and there
you’ll be, all marked up like a junkie or a criminal, but mostly as a
mindless sheep, a person who shows poor, long term judgment, not exactly
the image or the character quality one would need to succeed.
I’m simply offering food for thought in order to enable people to act by
being informed, I do not care how many tattoos people choose to have, it’s
their life and their health, but above all, their happiness they must
consider for the long term.
There are huge risks with both tattoo application, and with their removal,
with the best advice being, do not get them until the health authorities
approve every aspect of them, especially the industrial inks currently
being used by all tattoo artists.
Never penetrate the skin unnecessarily, because to do so is to undergo a
surgical process and the risk of infection in this day and age, is huge,
especially when super bugs are considered.
Only fools inject drugs, so it’s fair to say, similar risks exist with any
kind of injection, and in the case of a tattoo, thousands upon thousands of
deep skin injections are involved but instead of injecting an anti biotic,
they involve industrial inks.
I’m happy to have done my best to inform. Good luck with whatever way you
decide to go..
I remember talking about getting 1 of those typical tribal band tattoos,
but they’re so trendy, that I’m glad that I didn’t. I believe in
impermanence, and tattoos are very permanent, so I’m not sure if I’d be
happy with any one idea.
I thought about getting a tattoo of my personal symbol around both of my
eyes… in red…
Tattoos are for those that have never grown out of the preschool mentality.
That drawing on themselves is cool or fun.
I personally don’t think there’s anything wrong with tattoos, but I do
agree that tattoos that are visible would decrease the chances of you
getting at least a good and well paid job. Tattoos are a symbol of
something to someone, yes they’re a statement too, but if they mean
something to that person, then there’s nothing wrong with it.
My view is, they’re obviously permanent to a certain degree, because you
now get the option of removal, although it’s not 100% guaranteed. But only
get tattoos if they truly mean something to you, there’s nothing worse than
just getting a random piece of ink that means nothing. I’ve always wanted
my sleeve done, down to just above my wrist so it could be covered up with
a shirt if needed, I’ve spent a long time coming up with loads of ideas
that would completely cover my arm, but so far haven’t thought of enough.
What I want, and other people should do the same, is to think of tattoo
ideas which when they’re 90 years old, would make them think, dam, I’m
still glad I had that done. A tattoo should mean something, not just some
random shit inked on your body, because by that stage they start becoming
I love facial tats, I’m getting one soon above my eyebrow …. its a
Are you really willing to risk the following?
In addition to allergic reactions and the unknown long-term health effects
from the metal salts and carrier solutions that make up tattoo inks, there
are other health risks involved. Skin infections, psoriasis, dermatitis and
other chronic skin conditions, and cancerous tumors (both benign, and
malignant) have all been associated with tattoos. Due to the use of needles
in tattoo application, there is also the risk of contracting infectious
diseases such as tetanus, herpes simplex virus, staph, HIV, AIDS, Hepatitis
B and C, and even Syphilis. And those with tattoos might not be able to get
a life-saving MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) test if they need one—some
hospitals and testing locations will refuse to do an MRI on people with
body tattoos due to the metal particles in the tattoo, which may cause a
burning pain during the test.10
If you plan on having your tattoo removed, you should be aware that some of
the pigments used (especially Yellow #7) are phototoxic and may break down
into toxic chemicals in the body when removed with UV light or laser,
common techniques used in tattoo removal. The toxic end-products eventually
wind up in the kidneys and liver, adding to your total body burden.5
Think for yourself.
In an ideal world, the ‘trade secrets’ clause that allows companies to put
profit over public health would be disallowed for all products used
topically, transdermally, or ingested into our bodies. However, in the
absence of federal regulation to protect the consumer from unqualified
tattoo artists, unhygienic tools and application methods, and highly toxic
inks, the best advice for the youth of today is abstinence from tattoos. At
the very least, one should find out if their state has any regulations on
tattoo inks, and always ask to see the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
for any pigment or carrier used to see basic health and safety information
for the ingredients involved. Skin tests should be performed prior to
tattoo application to see if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Although certain tattoo ink ingredients may be plant-based or otherwise
considered safe and non-toxic, the truth is that no long-term studies have
been performed confirming that they are safe to inject as a permanent
cosmetic. Bottom line: don’t trust the government, tattoo ink
manufacturers, or tattoo artists to give you accurate and complete
information on the toxicity of the pigments and dyes being used—at least
not just yet.
just immagine growing old and all that art turning to mush…then everyones
gonna look at ya as some weird old person
lol i hate people like this woman so much. just because you don’t
understand something doesn’t make it stupid.
The ultimate declaration of mental masturbation….
All justifications in favor of such garbage habits will center around the
triptych: individuality, relativism, live (in) the moment.
Try to rebut me without trespassing on one of these… Oh, and why are
these three the cancer of today’s society?…. Well, you should start
thinking instead of regurgitating like a little parrot that “it’s good and
wonderful because it’s my personal choice and I love it”…
If today’s people learnt to sift through the bad and the good, humanity
would improve not just in science but in civilization, also. There is
objectivity EVERYWHERE. you have been taught that everything is subjective,
but you never ask “WHY”.
There is a point when tattooing becomes disfiguring. I’m not going to dance
around it, the face is the point! Although, I don’t dislike most people
with tattoos because more people with tattoos aren’t stupid enough to get
one on the face.
No matter how much you love tattoos, never get visible ones. Tattoos all
over you mean you’re either a tattoo artist or a musician.
Ones that can be hidden easily are cool though
fuck i hate this girl
Tattoos are kinda like makeup but tattoos are permanent. Like really
people? People can do whatever they want to their OWN body!!!
People who have tattoos are disgusting and immoral.
Her consistent choice of the word “stupid” really makes her sound like an
ass. Assy McGee everyone!
i am a tattooer, but face tattoo not for me. and lots of profesional
artists refuse tattoo on face of their clients
ooh id have to pay some attention to a girl who would put my name on her
face.. or even like her neck no doubt about that. obviously not
everything.Also that vsing a ring pfff ring means nothing.
I have tatts on my arms not sure if i would do my face but you have to look
at it from others point of view, some hate tatts, some love them, i look at
it like this some light a cigaret up suck the smoke into your lungs, pay to
do it, it cost a lot and kills you, i hate that, you hate tatts, were not
all the same.
she so pretty and now her face is ruined for life
If it makes you feel beautiful & happy. Then who cares. Even like the woman
said, theres no psychy to someone being mentally ill if they have extreme
tattoos. I have a large portion of my body tattooed. Including my entire
neck, throat, hands, & some of my face. It’s turned me into a much
healthier & confident person. I feel the ease to smile more because I feel
like I have such incredible art to show the world. I never thought I was
horrendous looking. But I do feel that I love the person I am, more now.
This is because I’m able to express things in ways I couldn’t with
possible words or just simple statements. I’m proud of the person I have
become, it may have created a more challenging lifestyle for me. Just
because of the world we live in. But I love working hard, showing people
that I have a good moral character. It’s nice to know that when I
accomplish things, or divulge myself into different aspects of life. It may
have taken some extra stride and ambition. I think this woman tackled the
subject without offending anyone. This is a nice video being respectful to
both peoples opinions on the matter. I wish that there was more like this
I adore tattoos I’m planning on getting most of my body done, I’m super
excited about it!
I love DNews 🙂 so interesting!
I try my hardest not to judge people who I don’t know. I once worked in a
greengrocer’s and served a guy with a lot of tattoos on his face. It took
me aback when I saw him, probably because I wasn’t really expecting it
(usually we’d have relatively “smartly” dressed customers, especially the
elderly). It made me wonder what his every day life must be like- if it
surprised me (somebody who doesn’t like to/or often judge), how would
somebody else react to it? For this reason I’m sure it would be difficult
to have any sort of job in service/commerce… so in my opinion I don’t
think that facial tattoos are a sensible thing to have.
I for one would love to have a tattoo (on a more discreet place), if it
weren’t for my worry that I’d not like it/feel embarrassed about it when
i have tattooed my face, i love all my tatts
fuck you bitch tattoos are awesome
i think that its ok if it isnt too glamorus like mike tysons tatoo is ok a
small tear drop is ok but 5 inch tatoos of your partners name on your face
is too much what if it dosnt work out you dumbasses
She abused tattoos too much. …. dislike
Call me prejudiced, but I’m suspicious about anyone who goes out of his way
to look like a criminal even if he did nothing wrong yet.
She is so fucking annoying.. and im only 10 sec in the video..
nothing says i love you like giving your babe a facial……………..
Lol I find it funny that im in the video and had no idea till someone
tagged me on instagram! id like to kno where you got the pic of me. But
anyways I think some face tattoos are sweet mine is hard to see when my
hairs down but id do it again for sure. And I also love how she doesnt talk
about the love of art and that ppl have stories and reasons for getting
things. Tattoo can b beautiful pieces of artwork but who cares if other ppl
have face tattoos its no ones buisness but their own ! If its not you who
cares what people do to their bodies. We dont judge other ppl for not
having tattoos so why judge us for having them right 🙂 just be your self!
This bitch scares me with her pig face
lose some weight fattie you look like a cow. Moooo Bessie Moooo.
Some People just love tattoos,don’t mean you’re fucked up in the head, I
hate stuck up people like her
Im in love with her <3
95% of my face is tattooed. I did it more or less to keep people at a
distance, also growing up I always had issues with the way I looked, always
felt like I didnt fit in or wasnt good looking enough for anyone. Now
instead of people looking at me, they’re looking at my tattoos. And if
someone takes the time to get to know me and look past the tattoos then I
know they are probably more genuine than the rest, and deserve my
what is wrong with a small star on ur sholder huh? im not getting one but
still what would be wrong with it
It’s always funny when people naturally break up with name of their ex
tatooed on them, but it will be hilarious when the couple in the video
do a little bit of research next time it might help you understand that
about 95-99%of tattoo ink is completely organic coming from natural plants
and as well as yes there is health risks but that shouldn’t detour someone
from going to a clean shop unless your doing it inside your own household
without the proper gear or using needles twice
I will never have a tattoos
Because everyone thinks she’s ugly, this is a good picture of Lesya (the
Russian girl). No matter how much you hate how it looks, you can’t deny the
linework is clean, and that he knew what he was doing. If it was a mistake,
it’s a very beautiful one.
remember that getting tattoos can be addicting so someone looking for just
1-3 could end up with very many.
