Actually, modern tattoos hold their image much better than the old ones... those sailor tattoos that became blurs of ink are no longer, since they use much better equipment now. You still have to take care of them (like not too much sun), but I have ones that are almost 15 years old, and look as they did on the first day. But if I do decide to remove them one day, that's my business - and hopefully laser techniques will be better at that point, LOL.

If you choose wisely. they will look fine. I dont get face tats, ouch..... I dont plan on getting all sun damaged and wrinkled... and by that time why will I care? I will be more concerned that I wont wake up in the morning than if my tats have warped into some weird blob!!LOl

If they are going to make me strip, maybe I should get my pole dancing outfit on!!!!! Maybe I can get some tips!!!!

One more thing... gang & prison tattoos are usually not done professionally, but with items like a paper clip and pen ink. That's why they often look like crap! Then again, I saw this documentary on Russian prison tattoos, and they did some AMAZING work!!
