Tattoos are usually long-lasting, so you probably thought very well what and where you want to get. But not all body parts are equally comfortable for tattooing! If you make a mistake with the place, it will begin to wear off over time.
It seems that tattoos are done everywhere - they even got to the eyeballs (and this is generally a very dangerous idea). Experts do not recommend getting tattoos where clothing is often in contact with the skin or sunlight is on the drawing. Here is a list of forbidden places, which the master may not say, but you should know.
The skin on the palms is too hard for the pattern to remain on it for a long time. The same applies to the skin on the back of the fingers. Over time, the tattoo will turn into a gray spot.
Firstly, it is also a rather difficult place to work. Secondly, bright colors won't be as bright as intended, and blacks will be truly black.
The tattoo will wear off due to contact with socks, tights and shoes. Unless, of course, you agree to walk in a skirt and barefoot all your life.
You constantly bend and unbend your arms, the tattoo will wear off over time.
The skin in this place is constantly shrinking and straightening, this is destructive for the picture.
And also the collarbones if you like to wear backpacks. Frequent contact with the webbing will fade the beauty of the tattoo.
How to save a tattoo?
1. Moisturize your skin
The better you take care of her, the longer the tattoo will be bright and pleasing. Use unscented water-based products, lanolin and petroleum jelly will not work. They are too rough and can clog the pores on the skin.
2. Protect the drawing from the sun
At least 2-3 months after application, while the healing process is in progress. Use the most powerful barrier cream. And then it is better not to expose this area to the sun's rays unnecessarily.
3. Don't wear tight clothes
Skinny jeans and sweat tops can ruin your design over time.
