Trends come and go all the time. What was popular last year won’t be popular this year, and in the “millennial” age, not keeping up with a trend (or doing something out of trend) could be social suicide. The same thing goes for tattoos. Tattoos, like fashion, go in and out of different periods of trends. In the earlier days of tattoos, they were frowned upon and considered distasteful. Fast forward to 2017, and tattoos are actually a fashion statement. More people around the world are getting tattoos than ever before, and it doesn’t look like anyone is planning on stopping.
From lower back tattoos, to ribcage tattoos, to butterfly quotes and tribal ink, the tattoo industry has definitely seen its fair share of trends. Within the past few years, the tattoo world has seen another “hip” trend emerge, often by girls in their late teens and early 20’s, and that is the finger tattoo. Sure it’s cute, so “chic”, “subtle” and just do darn “cool”, but what most people who get them don’t know is that they age horribly.
Here are some photos as proof, and if you’ve been considering getting one, hopefully this will change your mind.
Sure, finger tattoos can be absolutely adorable.
But generally, tattoos on our fingers rarely heal well.
Think about it this way…you use your hands for basically, well…everything.
When you get a tattoo, it takes lot of care to make sure it heals right. It needs to remain clean and dry…and how are you supposed to do that if it’s on your finger?
Say you cave in and decide to get a finger tattoo…what’s going to happen when you need to go the bathroom? Or grab something from your pocket, or when you take a shower?
Finger tattoos are just a disaster waiting to happen. Believe it or not, the majority of peoples’ finger tattoos fade within months.
