Submitted by Jodie Michalak on Tue, 2014-06-24 16:47

 

The best part about tattoos is that they are permanent. Unlike most purchases you will make in your lifetime, when you get tattooed you're wearing a tangible piece of art.

 

With that said, the cost of a tattoo over the years breaks down to a pretty affordable investment, regardless of the artist, the size, the location, and even any touch-up work.

Even the most careful of tattoo collectors may need a tattoo cover up at least once in their life. Sometimes we get our tattoos young and don't research the tattoo artists thoroughly enough. We may end up with a tattoo of a heart that looks more like a kidney bean. Or perhaps some of us have gotten a tattoo with our soul mates name on it, only later to find out that they WERE NOT our soul mate...in the slightest. Those rose colored glasses can be very dangerous to walk into a tattoo shop with, but hey, it happens! A tattoo cover up can be a true life saver.

Eyebrow Tattoos can look very normal or very startling depending on the type of eyebrow tattoo you get. The common and even unnoticeable eyebrow tattoo is the kind that women get as permanent makeup. These are tattoos that women get when they're eyebrows start to thin, and they are tired of filling in the eyebrow shape with makeup. These kinds of tattoos can be done in many makeup studios, as well as tattoo studios. Some permanent tattoos are less common looking, as the wearer may choose to make them extra thick or extra arched. We've all seen these lists floating around the internet.
