Hi everybody the thing is that I'm thinking about getting a tattoo... But I would like to read all your opinions about tattoos, this is a site that promotes health so what do you think a tattoo could be unhealthy? and can we donate blood after a few years???
hope you can help me then i could make a decision :D thnx
Ive got some ink. Do your homework on whats in ink and what options there is.
As much as giving blood is a great thing FORGET about it if you want to be fit and healthy.
isn't it what natural hygiene considers permanent make up?
tats are great in my opinion, but make sure you ink something meanful - i see so much garbage put on people's bodies. i have one and is says "vegan" - this means something to me.
also, as vegans, ensure that your tattoo is vegan - vegan ink, vegan aftercare, etc. This is a great place to get educated about vegan tattoo: http://vegantattooeducation.blogspot.com
keep posted and do show pics if you end up doing it :)
You can actually donate blood 6 months after getting a tattoo.v
I've got 4 tattoos, one quite big covering my thigh. Love em!
Thank you for all your answers ! they are all positive so probably I will have a tattoo soon :) thanks Durianrider I didn't know about ink.
Alek yes I agree with you I want also something meanful I saw a pic of yours and loved it. I want something like tha infinity symbol and the "V" of vegan so maybe it will be a combination of both so I have to think about the dising :) and of course, when I get my tatt I will show it to you all :)
Tarah, that are great news! thank you so much you should post pics of yout tats too :)
My right hip tattoo.
As well I have the chinese symbols for "sister" on my left forearm and a clover on my right big toe. I work in the hospitality industry and no one would know by looking at me that I even have tattoos.
love em! the dolphin is such a great work they are beauthiful tats can't wait to have mine
Theres a reason tattoo removal is such a big business. Got tattoos? Sorry, you're not allowed to work for us.
The working hypothesis is that there is a measurable (negative) correlation between income level and percentage of body covered in tattoos. Corporate America in general is not that tolerant of tattoos and a very high percentage of managers will not hire or look at tattoos as a negative on your potential job placement. This is not how I feel but many managers instantly assume someone being covered in tattoos makes you a lower class citizen? I'm just letting you know how people with money look at things.
Why anyone would want to work for corporate America is beyond me.
I run my own businesses and it's more then just America. Unless your self employed your entire life or are a Rock star or Pro Athlete it could cost an easy million dollars in lost wages over your life.
Or perhaps if you're like those "corporate" businessmen, lawyers, doctors, professors, executives who have full sleeves, full back pieces, chest pieces and leg work but choose to temporarily cover up an artists masterpiece beneath a plastic cloak of ties and button down long sleeve pressed collared shirts.
What kind of life is it to be bound behind white wooden prison bars and freshly manicured lawn clippings? A life distracted 1,900 hours per year while in the pursuit to gain an imaginary income to match an imaginary lifestyle and imaginary trinkets?
Anyone can be self employed.
Anyone can employ themselves towards a career that aids environmental, humane and animal causes.
Anyone can be an artist.
Anyone can be a pro athlete.
Anyone can seek knowledge.
Anyone can find happiness without money.
But nobody can be truly happy and fulfilled by living an artificial life controlled by the human ego, sleeping in an over sized box crafted out of the souls of massacred trees, and waiting to eternally sleep in an even smaller box six feet under.
Money is not relevant to ones happiness if the majority of ones waking hours is spent being free and jubilant.
