Tattooing has been a cultural tradition around the world for centuries. However, behind each cool design and instagram post, there are secrets that those involved want to hide from the public. Here are the Top 10 Secrets Tattoo Artists Don’t Want You To Know Subscribe for more! ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedSubscribe ◄ Stay updated ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedFacebook https://twitter.com/BeAmazedVideos https://instagram.com/BeAmazedVideos ◄ For copyright queries or general inquiries please get in touch: [email protected] Credit: https://pastebin.com/1JbapdCj Be Amazed at these Top 10 Secrets Tattoo Artists Don’t Want You To Know! Tattoos are addicting… and tattooists like it that way - The majority of those who get a tattoo end up getting a second… and a third… and… it can keep going from there. Some get addicted to the rush, but others are swayed by their tattoo artists. Tattoos aren’t just for tough guys - The image most people have when they think of tattoos is of a big burly biker. While many of the first people to get tattoos in the 1960s were bikers, the image has shifted considerably over the decades that followed. Don’t trust a tattoo-free tattoo artist - As the tattoo industry gets larger and larger there is an influx of less qualified tattoo artists. Flipping through a portfolio is one way of getting a sense of the tattoo artist’s style, but checking out the skin art they sport can help you understand more about them. The sun is the enemy - This secret could significantly cripple the tattoo industry. Exposing a fresh tattoo to the sun is the worst thing you can do. Tattoos aren’t vegan - Most vegans are strict about every single piece of food that they consume to make sure every single component doesn't contain any animal products whatsoever. Tattoos hurt a lot and sometimes don’t even last! I know it isn’t a secret that tattoos hurt, but what many people don’t know is just how much certain body parts hurt. Fingers in particular are insanely painful and are the most unpredictable when it comes to ageing. They will let you make a mistake - Tattooing is a business at the end of the day, so if you want to get something questionable… they aren’t necessarily going to stop you. Cover ups pay the bills - Cover ups were once looked at as a last resort for a tattoo that you hated the look of… or maybe that dumb infinity symbol… or the name of your ex that your tattoo artist shouldn’t have given you in the first place. Tattoos can be dangerous - The common thought is that the danger in getting a tattoo lies in dirty shops and back alley tattoo parlors, but even in the cleanest and most sterile shop, there is unfortunately so many dangerous things that can go wrong. Every tattoo artist make mistakes often - Mistakes? No way! These are happy accidents! Like it or not, nearly every tattoo has a mistake of some sort. After all, they are using a vibrating device to stick a needle into a moving human being’s skin… there is no way to make sure every single line, dot, or mark is exactly where it needs to be.

Only tats I would ever consider are the stick-on sorts (I have a friend who sticks on removable tats). I can go for that, but NOTthe permanent painful process. I have varied interests and if I change i don-t wish to be stuck with an outdated tat and have to go through the money and pain to have such removed). NO (permanent) tats for me!

A woman I know it's married to a tattoo artist and wanted to get his name across the whole front of her neck. He said no. She got it anyway. When your husband doesn't want that sort of sign of commitment, there's a good chance that it means he doesn't want that lengthy commitment.

Honestly every time someone asks for a name tattoo, the artists almost always ask them, who is that? And as soon as they tell them it’s a boyfriend husband girlfriend wife etc. the artist always ask them over and over are you sure?, what if things don’t work out etc. At the end of the day people are gonna do with their going to do, and a good artists knows if they don’t put the name on them, someone else perhaps of less caliber will, and in the end who are they to judge? But for sure almost all name tattoos suck!

8 years tattooing. This video is ignorant bullshit someone made-up out of boredom... Artists want to protect their work, not mislead people... Are you kidding me? Also, people under 30 are not "saving" the industry. They are ruining it. By getting a lot of work in very little time as cheaply as possible. Nothing makes someone stay ink-free than some dipshit 23 year-old with a bunch of shitty work. Especially on their dumb-fuckng-face. Do us all a favor, by the way. Wash your nasty asses once in a while. We can smell you. HUGE FACTOR as to why I no longer work with the public.

I'm a tattoo artist. The first thing I tell nubbes getting their first tattoo, is that you tend to want more afterwards. And I always in courage people to come get tattooed during the winter months bc it's the slowest time of year for us anyway! And of course I inform them to stay out of the sun, use sunscreen and a good moisturizer routine bc that tattoo is a representation of the quality of my work and that means more to me than anything! The absolute last thing I want is a shitty tattoo carrying my name that ends up getting covered up. Fucking dweeb. . .
Mac Davis (30 days ago)
Most of this stuff is either false or common knowledge if you do even the smallest bit of research or your artist will tell you. (And if you're getting a tattoo, you should be doing your research) 10) Tattoos are addicting. Just about anything that gives you a kind of an adrenaline rush will be addictive. Rollar coasters, caffiene, etc. And if your artist is talking about your second tattoo, a lot of people who get one tattoo, are probably already planning to get more. So it's not like a scheme. It's just them planning ahead so you don't regret it or that way you can have some ideas for the next one. They're going by the majority of their customers. 9) Anyone can get a tattoo?? Well imagine my shock! These tattooed women I've been seeing all my life weren't just in my head after all! 8) Fair point. If they're an apprentice, they might not have that many tattoos. But normally tattoo artsits are that because they are passionate about tattoos and love that artform. 7) EVERY ARTIST IS GOING TO TELL YOU TO STAY OUT OF THE SUN! Even if you have a sketchy artist who for some reason don't tell you, this is such basic and common knowledge that anyone with any knowledge of tattoos will tell you. And there are many artists who will advise you to get tattoos during winter. 6) TATTOOS NOT BEING VEGAN IS ALSO PRETTY BASIC KNOWLEDGE! If you do any kind of research on tattoos (WHICH YOU SHOULD BE DOING IF YOURE GETTING A TATTOO) you will find out fairly quickly, they're not vegan. This isn't a secret. There are some shops that are vegan. Yes vegan inks are harder to get, but if you need to stick to those restrictions, you can find artists who are willing to do it. 5) BASIC KNOWLEDGE! Tattoos hurt, especially in places with less fat. If you hit your bicep on something, it's going to hurt a lot less than hitting your hip. You don't even need to do research for this point. And yes things fade on parts of the body that experience a lot of friction. The palms of your hands experience a lot of friction and have thin skin, that is going to fade a lot faster than a bicep. And who just assumed they're going to walk out of a shop with a full sleeve? If your plan is to get a whole sleeve, there's a good chance you've planned and researched and know you're not just going to walk out with hours worth of art on you're arm. 4) Many artists are going to give you advice so you don't have to deal with something that you don't like forever. Tattoo artsits are artists. They take pride in their work. They aren't going to waste their time something they know is a mistake if they're a good artist. 3) Most artists don't like doing cover ups. Some artists who do it see it more as helping somebody than some sadistic gain at your expense. 2) Anything can dangerous that will be going into your skin. And if you're not taking care of your tattoo and you feel the affects of that, you can't blame your artist. They gave you the info it's your job to follow it. You chose to get art on your skin, you need to take care of that. 1) Every artist makes mistakes. It's not a secret at all? This video is just so ignorant. If you didn't know this shit in the first place, you shouldn't be getting a tattoo.

My advice to those getting a tattoo, even if you're not a first timer is to wait a year. If you don't feel the same way about the design as you did a year then probably shouldn't get.

I really hope people aren’t gullible enough to believe some of these. No females do not use tattoos as a rebellious statement. Also, Personally as a tattoo artist without tattoos this offends me. You can literally ask to see a tattoo artists license if you’re really that skeptical about their qualifications to tattoo.
Colby S (1 month ago)
Some of that was really silly, and some was spot on! I've been tattooing for just under 30 years, and this video got some good laughs from me. Tattoos aren't actually addictive and we don't use subtle psychological techniques for getting newbies strung out on future ink! Also, modern FDA approved vegan colours are pretty much in the majority now, and you would have to go to a back alley grease monkey to get inks with shellac or even animal based glycerin (plant based is just as available and the usual choice for good inks like Intenze, Eternal, Fusion, etc...in fact most all are batch numbered and have chemical rap sheets for each colour that they will send you upon request. Also, we scold people up and down if they expose their ink to the sun...but fortunately, once the ink if healed on the surface you can slather in in sun screen. Still, a lot of the video was really good...and, yeah, good cover-ups of crap tattoos are a big bread and butter factor in most shops these days. I do about 1/4 cover-ups, and even think they are a fun challenge.

Honestly my artist NEVER tells me about sunscreen, he just tells me the aftercare instructions after i take the bandage off. I put sunscreen on my tattoos religiously. It's common sense. I dont care if it's spring, summer, fall or winter. Sun doesnt discriminate against seasons. People with tattoos that dont cover up give me the weirdest look in public cause they see me covering my tattoos up in sunscreen and the literally look at me and say in confusion, i hear this ALL THE TIME, "why do you have sunscreen on your tattoos?" Cover that ink up and your tattoos will NEVER fade, just age.
Wow lot of hate for this video lol

For christs sake, you can't pack the entire industry up into a cheap 10 minute video, where more than half your information is false or mystified. Whether or not you are trying to be impartial about your information, you are monetizing by misleading folks. Hey people, best thing to do in search of your tattoos: consult with qualified practitioners. It means a world of difference. Word-of-mouth is very important in this industry. Don't be a lazy schmuck.

Got a tat on the back of my neck when i was 17. Buddy from work did it with a home made gun, needles, and ink. It got terribly infected. Swelled up, caused nerve damage. I ended up with temporary partial paralysis from the swelling and infection. Forced into a wheelchair for a few weeks left me plenty of time to think about my poor decision. Definitely research your potential artist prior to getting work done. Plan your tattoos in advance if you can. Having a bunch of random shit that doesnt relate or tie in sucks down the road when you want more ink. I didnt plan when i was a young man and getting my first pieces done. I regret it terribly. 2 words can help anyone. DUE DILLIGENCE!! Put the work into research and planning its worth it.

What a load of shit
A tattoo design is a fashion that last about two years. So what is trendy now, will be tacky in two years. Then a very neat tattoo will be disfigured if you gain or lose weight. Time and tattoos are not good friends. And removing a tattoo is five times more painful.
When everybody wanted to go on the bad biker image, that image was lost on bad bikers, or normal bikers. So bikers just got on their bikes and rode off, bypassing tattoo parlours. These days you need mud or dust on your bike to be considered a serious biker.
