There are always different kinds of tattoos trending. However the latest trend is cuticle tattoos. They’re all over Instagram at the moment. And we’re sure that they will be even more popular once this idea catches on further.
People are getting small dots, flowers, arrows, and other small images just below their nail. Some designs continue all the way down the fingers. Some people are even matching their cuticle tattoos with their nail polish.
While this trend is really popular at the moment. There are a couple of things you need to consider before getting this type of tattoo. Firstly, the finger is one of the most painful places to get a tattoo. Therefore this design may not be ideal for someone who has a low pain tolerance.
Also finger tattoos fade quickly. That’s because your hands are exposed to the sun, cleaning products, and all kinds of other stuff. Consequently it may not look as good in a couple of years time. So you need to take this into consideration before running to your nearest tattoo shop.
Furthermore, tattoos on your fingers are visible at all times. Which could cause all kinds of issues in the future. So you need to ask yourself if you’re ready to have a tattoo that’s visible to everyone you meet. Are you prepared for any possible judgement you’ll face as a result? Are you in a more conservative industry, where tattoos are frowned upon? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a cuticle tattoo probably isn’t the best idea.
If after reading this article, you’re still unsure whether a cuticle tattoo is right for you. Then you can try the trend without committing. There are loads of brands now selling temporary cuticle tattoos. That you can stick on to your fingers, without going through the pain of something permanent.
