If you're thinking about getting a tattoo, there some things you should probably consider before heading to the shop. Where you should go? Who should you use? What you should get and where? What size should your tattoo to be? You know, basic questions. You may also want to take into account some of the surprising things that happen to your body when you get a tattoo (aside from, you know the alteration of your appearance.)
Tattoos are more popular among Americans than they have been in previous years. According to a 2015 Harris Poll, 29 percent of Americans and 47 percent of Millennials have at least one tattoo. But, like piercings, tattoos can affect your health and body in a major way because they introduce unfamiliar materials to your body's precisely calibrated internal balance. If you think a tattoo might be in your future, you may want to add the ways they can impact your health to your list of things to consider, or you may just want to know what might happen to your body as a result so you're not surprised if something comes up. Either way, knowing what happens to your body when you get a tattoo is important. As the saying goes, knowledge is power.
