The Deal About Body Art: What Is It All About

May 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 235

It is the ultimate goal of people to be looked at, be gazed upon with looks of appreciation. That is what make-up can do for ladies and that is why they hang on to it for centuries. Facial make-up though has moved passed the simplicity of making oneself attractive and has become an expression of self.

Body paintings have replaced nudity, permanent and henna tattoos have been written on many individuals that it has become a trendy style while piercing on the other hand has gone farther than the earlobe.

The concept of body art has gone to more than concealment of imperfections and beautification and has extended to a dynamic form of art. Being it so, one must also realize that there are certain things that one must know before having body art done on the body or any part of it.

*Originality Whether you want a tattoo or a piercing, you must know one thing - body art is all about originality. Twins are cute when they are still toddlers but when they get older, they look silly together. Just like a tattoo, body paint or a piercing, it will not look pleasing if two people have the same design totally alike.

*It stays forever Drunk or not, once you have your body pierced, painted or tattooed on, it has been done. Lucky you if you only got a piercing but what if it is a tattoo. It stays on permanently and getting it out is almost the same as having one inked.

Besides that, think maturely about what you want to have. Many people often think of body art lightly and just have it done on a whim. Mostly, what can mean most to you today cannot have the same effect on you as yesterday so choose your words wisely or your design thoroughly.

*Cost Body art comes with a price and though it may be a thing for expression you still have to think about how much it will cost you. Body paintings are usually done for free, and most volunteer to have their bodies painted on, if you are just in it for the experience, why not wait for the next body art festival and have it done on you without a price instead?

Or if you have the money, discuss the design and the cost with your artist before doing so. Try to get a reasonable price with it without sacrificing the design and the cleanliness.

*Where to get it Tattooing is a common thing but make sure you align yourself with a credible artist. Tattooing and body piercing both involve skin penetration, and it involves your vessels to. The equipment they use should be clean as eve, not re used and recycled.

If you are not asked to complete any form before getting your service, demand one or switch shops. Do not think that all shops are clean and hygienic, be vigilant on your own and choose the best shop to get your body art done.
