#thinkb4uink - The Finger Tattoo

At FH we generally do not advise getting a finger tattoo. The only time we would consider it is if you are fully aware that it is going to look ugly in a few months - into there words that it has more sentimentel value and is not about the appearance of the tattoo.

 

Why is it going to look ugly?

 

The skin on your hands and feet is waay more wrinkly - which means that the tattoo will “bleed” between the wrinkles, making it appear smudged. 

 

The skin is also much tougher than other areas - meaning that the ink will not hold as well as it should, requiring touch up after touch up as the ink falls out.

 

The more you touch it up - the more smudged it will get - and after a year - you will end up with an ugly blob of whatever used to be there before - or you will give up touching it up and it will just look like a faded old prison tat.

 

Your choice - but now you know why…
