Consider When Obtaining a Tattoo or Piercing
(press release from The American Society for
Without giving it much
thought, many choose to brand themselves with a tattoo or body piercing to
express their personality, but today's trend may be tomorrow's regret. As a
result, many of yesterday's trendsetters choose to remove piercings and
undergo laser tattoo removal. According to Jeffrey Dover, MD, dermasurgeon
and fellow of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), there
are several do's and don’ts people should consider before getting a tattoo
or piercing that would help if and when the removal process comes along.
- Do choose a facility carefully: Make sure the establishment is
reputable and licensed to perform these procedures.
- Do keep things simple: A small tattoo or one with two or three
colors is the easiest to remove, as well as conceal; and simple piercings
in the ear are classic symbols of style that never get out of style.
- Do choose an appropriate location: Because outlandish piercings
or tattoos in unusual and sensitive areas can lead to scarring and holes
that never heal, you may want to think twice about where to place these
items on your body. Also, think carefully about where you want it and how
big it should be. A good tip is to place it in an area that can be covered
by clothing traditionally worn in the work place. For example, a belly
button piercing can easily be covered but shown off if you wish, whereas
an eye brow piercing can not.
- Do remember what's "hot" today may not be tomorrow: Today, the
latest fad may be tribal or flower tattoos, but tomorrow’s trends may be
different. That lip ring may not be so popular when you are a soccer mom
driving the car pool. So, think about down the road and what you’ll be
happy with in the years ahead.
- Don't administer self-piercings or tattoos: Attempting to
pierce yourself or give yourself a tattoo is extremely dangerous and can
lead to infections, serious health complications and even death.
- Don't have a procedure in unsanitary conditions: Sterile
equipment and supplies should always be used for tattoos and piercings.
Look out for unacceptable conditions, such as the use of needles on more
than one patient and technicians who don’t wear gloves.
- Don't let an infection go: If you suspect any problems, or
experience considerable redness or soreness, see your dermasurgeon
immediately – it may signal an infection.

before getting a tattoo/piercing or the effect they can have on your skin,
