Have you ever wanted to try a new tattoo style? Now’s your chance! The British singer and social media star, Rob Pattinson, has a new temporary tattoo design that’s taken Europe by storm. It’s called the “Piercing” tattoo and it’s designed in a rough, steampunk-meets-sci-fi style reminiscent of Harley Quinn from the Batman series. Naturally, as with any hot trending topic, there are concerns about whether or not this is a safe choice for some people. Fortunately, the medical community seems to agree that temporary tattoos are relatively safe when compared to other forms of body art. However, just to be safe, here are some things you should know before you get the tattoo.

Is It Suitable For Medical Purposes?

In order to ensure the safety of the public and the tattoo artists, it is essential that the public knows whether or not this particular design is suitable for medical purposes. Fortunately, the makers of this design claim that it is entirely suitable for this purpose and, based on the evidence, they could be correct. After all, they have had a lot of clinical testing and have found that it is highly unlikely to cause any adverse effects. Still, it’s always better to be safe than sorry and, as a temporary tattoo, this could ultimately be removed at any time. In fact, most people who get this tattoo are opting to have it removed after the party has ended.

Will It Hurt When You Get It Removed?

Even though most people who get this tattoo are deciding to have it removed later on, you should know that it will hurt when it’s removed. As with any form of body art, there will be some degree of discomfort when the tattoo is removed. Still, in most cases, this will be more than compensated for by the artistic satisfaction that you get from having this piece of art on your body. In some instances, patients have reported severe pain following tattoo removal procedures. Fortunately, this is extremely rare and most doctors recommend against undergoing such treatments if you’re not prepared to cope with the pain. In these cases, it is advisable to seek medical help.

Where Can I Get It Removed?

Although the majority of people who get this tattoo are planning to have it removed later on, you should know that there is a procedure to have it removed now! Fortunately, there are a number of doctors around the world who are able to remove this kind of tattoo and, given its increasing popularity, it’s definitely something you should consider doing if you’re planning on staying in the country for the long term.

What Will It Look Like Once It’s Finished?

Tattoos are easily recognizable as they’re composed of a series of horizontal or vertical bands that are usually monochrome but can also be polychrome. In some cases, people who get this tattoo have described it as a cross between an Aztec headdress and a ship’s wheel. Still, the vast majority of people who get this tattoo are electing to go with something simple and straightforward. This is partially due to the nature of the design but also because they want to keep the design simple for the duration that it will be on their bodies.

Ultimately, the decision to get a tattoo is one that’s personal to the individual who gets it. In most cases, people get these tattoos as a fashion statement but, in some instances, it could be that the person is looking for personal significance from the piece of art that they’re putting on their body. Regardless of the reason, the fact that there are so many different options makes this form of body art incredibly versatile and, as such, a great choice for people who want to express themselves through their bodies.
