Semi Permanent Tattoos

April 17th, 2012 by admin

A great way to decide if you want a tattoo permanently is to get a temporary tattoo. A step further is to get a semi permanent tattoo. These type of tattoos are supposed to last anywhere from six months to 5 years. That way someone does not have to have the tattoo surgically removed. Sounds like a good idea especially for the 18 year old who is getting a tattoo just because they are 18 and they can do it.

There is debate about semi permanent tattoos however. Do they actually disappear over time or just fade.  The reading I have done tells me that any ink put under your skin is not temporary, parts of it may fade but then you are left with a blotchy tattoo. There are a few alternatives to permanent tattoos however, henna, mehndi, and stick on tattoos, some of the stick on tats are very nice and can last for about a week.

It will be great when the semi permanent tattoo is perfected and people can have the best of both worlds.
