These types of tattoos are gorgeous and mysterious but there is also a lot of meaning behind them. Ankh tattoos represent things like abundance and life. Abundance is available to all of mankind and everything to do with nature. It’s all the elements coming together that create life. There are pieces of the ankh that mean different things. There is a loop at the top that is symbolic of the sun when it joins the earth’s horizon. The union between the sun and earth is a huge deal for the ancient Egyptian mindset. History tells us of how in the lands of Egypt the sun always sweetly kisses the land and that brings about abundance to the land. In Egypt, life is promised to prosper for a few reasons that include the earth, water and the sun. The symbol is sacred because it represents the union between Isis and Osiris who are ancient Egyptian deities.

What You Need To Know Before You Get Your Tattoo
Getting a tattoo can be an exciting time especially if it’s your first. Let’s be honest, every time that we get a new tattoo, it’s an exciting time. There are things to know before you get your tattoo, it should never be something that you rush into. You want to be able to love your tattoo forever so that’s why it’s important to do your homework. We have some tips so that you are prepared for this exciting time. You have to remember that you are not only putting a piece of art on you but you are also putting something permanent on your body. You want to take a few moments to think about what you want.
Here is everything you will want to know about your tattoo:
Don’t Take Your Tattoo Lightly
There are people that will get tattoos, one right after the other without much thought to what they are putting on their bodies. They will get so many that they don’t know what to do with them or they will have them removed later on. That’s why teens should never get tattoos done because the things that you choose for a tattoo when you are a teen is unlikely to be something that you are still happy with as an adult.
When it comes to getting a tattoo, you want to think about the design that you want. Don’t rush into getting a tattoo, make sure that you think long and hard about your decision. If you really do your research, you can end up with a tattoo that you will love forever. One thing we would advise against is putting any person’s name on your body. It happens more often than not that there is regret behind that choice. Especially if you are getting your boyfriend’s name tattooed on your body. It might seem romantic but there have been plenty of times people break up and then they don’t know what to do with it after. It’s just something to think through before you move ahead with it. It might be fine to put your kid’s name or your mom on your body but just think twice about anyone else. You can always get a tattoo removed but it’s expensive and painful.
Research The Artist
Please whatever you do, research the person who is going to tattoo you. Not all artists are created equal and when it comes to choosing someone to tattoo you, you want to make sure that you get someone professional and reputable.
If you know people that have tattoos and you love them, then ask them who did the tattoo. Other people’s tattoos are the best advertising as long as they are good ones. That’s a great start for someone looking for a tattoo. You can see tattoo artists on Instagram and if you find someone that you admire, then you can start there. You can see all their work on Instagram and even see reviews.
Before you even book your appointment with an artist you should have a few questions prepared. The first one should be: Is the tattoo you are looking for compatible with the artist that you chose. For example, if you hire an artist that only does cartoon designs to do a portrait then you might not be happy with the results. Make sure that whatever artist you hire has some experience in the type of tattoo that you are looking for.
Others questions that you should have are is there a deposit required? Is there a cancellation policy? How does the artist work? If there are popular artists out there then you need to be prepared for the fact that they might be booked for months and you will have to go on a waiting list.
A talented and professional artist will listen to what you want and help you design the tattoo before you set up an appointment. If you work together then you are likely to get the tattoo that you want.
Make Sure The Artist Uses Safety Precautions
When you chose an artist, you want to make sure that not only is he/she using safety precautions but that the whole shop is. There are different requirements depending on the state, province or country that you live in so you may have to check out what requirements there are where you live. There are places that require the shop and artists to have licenses and certification. You want to make sure that whatever shop you go to complies with the laws that are in place.
Checking to make sure a shop has the right legal requirements isn’t the only thing that you should check on. You want to look at the facility itself. A clean shop is very important because it says a lot about where you are getting your tattoo done. You want to make sure that it is sparkling clean and even smells of disinfectant. When you visit the shop look for clean sanitation as well as the tools that you see. The artist should be unwrapping brand new single-use needles right in front of you. The ink should be prepared fresh as well right in front of you. Be suspicious of any place that has the needles unwrapped before you get there. They should be doing that right in front of you. You have to remember that your new tattoo is like having an open wound and that’s how easy it can be to get infected.
