Having a scar somewhere around your body can be a nightmarish thought for many beauty-conscious people. Now that tattooing has made its way into the mainstream fashion trends, many people are opting for tattoos in order to hide the scar. In a hygiene tattoo world, this trend has sparked off a big debate on whether getting a tattoo done over the scars is medically feasible or not.
It would be very presumptuous to say that there are no medical threats associated with scar tattooing. However, it also remains a certainty that tattooing can be a very effective cover up for your scarred skin,provided your scar is completely healed. That said, let’s get a few things straight regarding this which would wipe out any misconception remaining in your mind.
Do not opt for tattooing if your scar is not completely healed. Usually, a scar takes 9-24 months to heal completely. Tattooing subjects your skin to very harsh chemical exposure. An industry which is still battling hard to enthuse its clients with trust regarding hygiene issues- tattooing does have its own dangers. You would never want to inflict further physical and mental agony upon yourself by subjecting your scarred skin under such kind of chemical exposure. The last thing which you would want to do is to get entrapped under the lure of some low quality tattoo designers who will make sure that you get the ‘most unhygienic tattooing session’ of your life. It is very natural to feel like hiding your scar with the most glamorous tattoo on the planet but it’s far more important to go for it only when you are medically fit for it. Ignoring hygiene issues will not only pose the threat of further skin infections but will also be detrimental for your mental well being.
The road to glory is beset with bushes of some ‘unhygienic threats’. You better watch out!
