Tattoo Designs - Chinese, Celtic etc

A "Tattoo" is a permanent or non permanent design which can be done on any part of the body. While non permanent tattoos are the simplest way to get a design on your skin, permanent tattoos are a painful experience with needles puncturing the design on your skin.

Non-permanent tattoos are designs that come on flimsy sheets of paper and the designs can be easily transferred on to the skin by applying water on the backside of the surface with design. This can also be washed off according to the convenience of the user. Other ways of acquiring a non permanent tattoo are henna designs or designs made with silver nitrate. Both these type of tattoos fade only after 10-15 days.

Permanent tattoos are of artistic nature and acquiring a permanent tattoo requires, patience, ability to with stand pain, choosing a good tattoo artist and ensuring hygienic practice of this art form. One can choose from a wide variety of tattoo designs that are categorized as: angel tattoos, Chinese tattoos, Celtic tattoos, Aztec tattoos, astrology tattoos, evil tattoos, fantasy tattoos the range is ever widening. The choice of your design reflects the style statement you wish to make with the design now being a permanent feature of your body.

Tattoo designs can be ornamental in nature as reflected by modern youth to indicate interest in body art while tattoo designs can also be indicative of religious or community symbols. Excessive tattoo and body art designs were initially used by criminals to indicate their psyche and criminal behavior. Therefore, employment in various fields may not take too kindly to visible tattoos and body art on account of such notions.

Permanent tattoos also run the risk of infections and allergies that rise from the kind of needles used by tattoo artists. Modern methods in tattoo design have done away with such fears. The electric tattoo machine now commonly used by tattoo artists insert the ink into the skin with the help of a group of needles that are held together by a bar which is attached to an oscillating unit. The needles used are single use needles which ensure safe and sanitary practices. One should also ensure that the tattoo artist wears gloves and uses disposable wet towels as and when required.
