A neck tattoo is quite common and popular. But if it is well thought through and well done, it can make a style statement different from every other placement or position of any other tattoo. Though not very popular until recent times, with changing preferences of patrons and a growing acceptance of it among the public, it gained fairly large popularity off-late. Here are a few reasons why it can save you a lot of trouble.
Getting a neck tattoo can be very painful. The skin around the neck is thinner — only the brave and bold venture into such a placement for a tattoo. So before deciding to get one, think twice and think hard. It is the most important and first decision you will have to make. Make sure you considered every option before deciding the neck as your placement position for the first or next tattoo.
A Neck Tattoo Is Conspicuous
The best thing about such a tattoo is you can decide to show it off or cover it up depending on the occasion or the people you plan to meet. Simple tricks like wearing appropriate clothing can make all the difference. You do not have to undergo a tedious job of thinking about how to manage your tattoo in uncomfortable circumstances. It is convenient and easy to display or not when you choose to.
A Lot Easier To Maintain
Because of its is positioning, aftercare and constant maintenance are much easier. Compared to the other positions of common tattoos, you can reach your whole neck with both your hands and take care of it. It is seldom exposed to the harsh realities of other parts of the body, like hands. The neck is the least often touched, and hence, the tattoo stays in shape and color for a longer duration.
It Can Start A Conversation
Because of its unique placement and your choice to display or hide your tattoo, it usually works as a conversation starter with strangers or people you meet. These conversations can lead to a different relationship level with the person you meet.
Like any other tattoo, a neck tattoo is a statement about yourself, your values and character, depending on the kind of tattoo you decide, it can make you look completely different according to the situation.
The stigma attached to tattoos, in general, is a reason for the low popularity. There continues to be a sense of negativity and a non-conformist attitude to it. But this school of thought is fast changing and people are now more accepting of it.
You will find various simple and elegant tattoos like the anchor, the infinity love, and other symbols popular as neck tattoos. Whatever your design is, a neck tattoo can always tell it better than any different placement. Getting a neck tattoo can be an experience of a lifetime. Enjoy it while getting one. It can make a bold statement about you, the values you want to display, and make an effective style statement.
