ever stop to think that some people dont give a rats ass if their tattoos look like crap?
Awwwww you’re cute little badasses, aren’t you? I just wanna pinch your little cheeks! :3
But seriously, sure, maybe some people are happy with their shitty tattoos. And that’s fine. If they’re happy with it, in the end that’s all that really matters, right? But what ISN’T okay is the practices that at-home tattooers/scratchers do. They’re unsafe and not even in the realm of clean. And that puts your HEALTH in danger, perhaps even your LIFE in danger. Sure, people can get infections and other bad shit from professionals, but it is much much much less likely.
And, really, at the end of the day, we’re here to let people know that they don’t have to have shitty artwork put on their bodies for the rest of their life if they want a tattoo. A lot of people think that getting a good tattoo is difficult or extremely expensive. Getting even a tattoo that is of decent quality done in a clean environment IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT OR EXPENSIVE (especially compared to the thousands and thousands of dollars in medical bills should something go wrong with your scratcher tattoo). Finding an artist who will work with you to create an amazing custom piece that is above and beyond what you ever thought could be done with a tattoo IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT.
Perhaps it’s more difficult in bumfuck nowhere where the next tattoo shop is hundreds of miles away. But you know what? If you really care about the art that’s on your body and even possibly your personal well being, you’ll fucking travel.
