If you are really desperate to get a tattoo, but you are not sure about the consequences or how long you are going to like the idea there is an answer to this: henna tattoos! These are the type of tattoos which will be fully removed over time and generally fades in the time frame of two to three weeks (of course it depends on the type of the product).
If we think about it for a minute, this is the basic core problem for tattoos. They can not be removed, and they are permanent. I am sure everyone have heard a lot of horror stories about tattoo removals and why you should be absolute responsible and think over a hundred times if you really want that awesome design. This is the question and this is the exact point where henna tattoos come into the picture. If you have a teenager daughter who has this great friend and they just realized how cool it would be to get a nice and big tattoo on their leg, a dragon for example. Of Course they don’t have any experience in anything even remotely related to tattoos, they just read a few tattoo magazines and came to the conclusion that they are definitely ready to live with the tattoo for the rest of their life.
The point I am trying to make is that please never underestimate the irresponsibility of the teenagers. Just tell her there is an option (and it is cheap) to get henna tattoos or henna tattoo designs (even a kit if they are that desperate) and they can test it out. I’d bet everything that after a week they don’t even like the tattoo anymore and can’t wait until it fully fades. So please, if you are a parent and you can’t seem to dissuade your kids, try the henna tattoos first. If everything falls, a small tattoo which can be hardly noticed. I am a great fan on the henna tattoos and the core concept, this is one of the best thing that could ever happen in the tattoo industry. Please use them, before you do anything which you will regret next week.
