Maybe you already know, tattooing has its own risk. One of them is infected by HIV, Syphilis, TBC (tuberculosis), and Hepatitis B. These ‘top’ diseases are highly contagious through blood contact.
Of course, you bleed when you are being tattooed. It’s a needle thing, Mate! Not a plain body painting. Some people are natural bleeders and bleeding does occur during tattooing. So, for people who have hemophobia (mental illness of afraid of blood) and hemophilia (physical illness where blood clots much more slowly than normal people), don’t even think about getting tattooed.
In some case, people get a nervous stomach while getting tattooed and sometimes even pass out, due to the bleeding. Armpits are very sensitive spot. So consider also about the pain.
Here is an experience of a woman tattooing her armpits:
Before it begun, I need to wax my armpits, the tattoo artist said that shaving is not enough. Then having me on table, he started his work. Drew the outline on my skin surface. It didn’t hurt too much, but I was so nervous. We then got into colors. He starts with red. Then another color. And another. And so on. It was really torture. My armpit skin was raw in nothing but pain. Seconds after seconds, it got worse. Then it ended. I get bandaged with head spinning, lightness.
It’s different with other part of your body, when you tattoo your armpit, you will directly smell your blood, because it’s pretty close to your nose. This is why a hemophobia sufferer should not do this, unless she get drug before the tattooing process.
After all, armpit tattoo? Come on! It looks nasty, don’t you think? Besides, the ink could block your sweat stream and give you trouble one day.
Maybe you think tattooing armpit is cool right after you have it. But what do you do when you have regretted that tattoo? You’ll never raise your arms again while wearing a sleeveless.
So, think before you knock a tattoo artist’s door. Unless you are so rich and able to get advance treatment anytime you want. FYI, a laser surgery to remove tattoos cost hundred thousand bucks. Not to mention that the process usually takes several sessions. Wasting money, wasting time. And your skin never be smooth again.
Be smart. Express your uniqueness another way.
