Most of my friends have had tattoos for years. I even went with two of them when they got their first tattoos, so I was able to see the entire process from the beginning to the end. I was egged on many times to get a tattoo, but I just didn’t want one until not too long ago. I still was not sure how I felt about having one permanently on my arm, and that is when I found out that temporary tattoos are a great way for a person to find out if he wants to have a permanent one or not.
I considered all of the pros and cons of getting a tattoo, and honestly, the pros list was much longer. I guess the only thing that had stopped me in the past was I did not see a tattoo that I really wanted to have. When I went with my brother so he could look at a tattoo artist’s portfolio, I started looking through it too. When I saw the tattoo of a lion with actual wisdom radiating from his eyes, I knew that it was the one that I wanted to have.
When I asked the tattooist if he could do that one for me with just a temporary tattoo, he agreed. He told me that it would last for a while because of the henna, but that it would not be permanent. That way, I would be able to determine if I liked it or not. Well, it took him a few hours, and it was absolutely fantastic. I know that when he does the permanent one, it is going to look even better because of the color he will be able to use. Getting a temporary tattoo was actually a smart decision, because it allowed me the choice of finding out firsthand if I wanted the one I am getting very soon.
