A tattoo is a permanent skin marking. Tattoos are made by injecting ink deep into the skin. A tattoo can mean something significant, or it may simply be decorative.
A lot of people choose to get the biohazard, or biological hazard, sign as a tattoo. These tattoos are popular among anarchists and nihilists. A biohazard is any chemical or biological organism that causes a health threat to other living creatures. If this is something you'd like to have tattooed permanently on your body, then here are some tips on getting a biohazard tattoo:
- Know what a biohazard sign looks like. The biohazard sign has been a popular tattoo since the game Resident Evil was released. Resident Evil is also known as "Biohazard" in Japan, the country where it originated. Of course, the symbol can also mean different things for you. The biohazard sign is often seen in factories or in hospitals as an indicator that certain types of biological waste can be disposed in some areas. It can also be seen on different products such as bags, caps and shirts.
- Preparation is key. Before getting your biohazard tattoo, you should make sure that you are really certain that this is what you want, as the tattoo will last forever. Search for the different types of biohazard tattoos online. You can also choose to draw your own biohazard tattoo so that the image will be more personalized. Choose a location on your body for the tattoo. Some of the most popular places for tattoos of this sort include the back or the upper arms.
- Consultation. Consult with your tattoo artist first before you get your tattoo. Choose a tattoo artist that you're comfortable with and discuss the tattoo that you want to get with him. He may have some suggestions about revising the tattoo, placement, and so on. Also, be sure that your tattoo artist has all relevant licenses, and check the cleanliness of the tattoo parlor. Some signs that the tattoo artist is clean are if he wears gloves and uses sterile needles. You can even check to see whether he has a health certificate to operate - some cities don't require these, but it's always a good sign if the tattoo artist has one, regardless.
- Getting the tattoo. Prepare yourself for actually getting the tattoo. The pain depends on the size of the tattoo and where it is located. After you get your tattoo, be sure to ask your tattoo artist for advice on how to clean the tattoo so that it will heal nicely. Your tattoo may itch for a few weeks. You should never scratch your tattoo, as this may ruin the design and prevent the tattoo from healing properly.
These are the steps in getting a biohazard tattoo. Whenever you get a tattoo, make sure that the symbol or the image you have selected means something significant to you. A lot of people who get tattoos out of impulse regret getting them. Also, if you are getting a tattoo for the first time, it is ideal to put it on a place that can be hidden under your clothes.
