* Could not find a better category than this to post the

review * * Now do not give me that stare. It indeed is a part of personal


(for me at least).


I am an impulsive buyer and doer. When I was buying things for my place like

Refrigerator or TV or Washing Machine et al, or When I wanted to visit a place

or choose amongst flights, I always either went by my instinct or by the most

convenient process where I do not have to do comparison between products. I am

just not cut out to do that kind of sorting considering I am hopelessly

restless. And that is why you will rarely see me rating any product/service,

now few others: do not again give that stare.

Ok. So I did it finally and got myself pampered with a permanent Tattoo. Now,

many will disagree saying how can that be a subject of being pampered as the

process would have taken the sh!t out of me. Well, yes it indeed was hurting

but it wasn’t awfully agonizing. It was as good as taking an injection, only a

continuous and lengthy one.

How it all began?

I have been using temporary stickers(no, not the boomer

ones) as tattoo for quite some time now and was happy doing it. A permanent one

was never in my scheme of things or in any sort of "blah-blah things to do

before blah-blah"

So, when I got the impulse to go for a permanent one I told

couple of friends and they advised me to consult few others who have done that.

Much to my dismay, I did ask and spent some time on Google and related sites.

After 3 days of extensive search and 10 to 12 calls later, I zeroed in on a

place and fixed appointment only to be informed a day in advance that the

person is going out of station and my appointment needs to be rescheduled. Now

what do I say to that? I spend so much time and at the end of it I am told to

do it later. But I was mentally prepared and was all set to go for it. So, I

called Just Dial services and asked for numbers of few permanent tattoo makers

in and around my area. I chose 2 randomly depending upon the distance from my

house and called them. One guy did not pick up. The other one picked up and I

asked for an appointment straightaway. He was quite puzzled as I did not ask

for any details and wanted just an appointment. He had a free slot. He again

asked me whether I want to know other details. All I said I will check for your

certification tomorrow when I come, right now I just want an appointment. So there

was I next day at the appointed hour. My best friend joined me as I was with

her last year when she had a cupid done on her back. The lady had screamed like

a dying fox and I had to stuff my handkerchief in her mouth, and later I had

fun telling all our friends about it. So this was time for her to take revenge.

She could not miss this chance at any cost.

It’s happening


I had couple of designs in my mind, the usual one which the

lady politely rejected. And she chose what I called an ugly dragon. I had

chosen the cupid for her so it was her go. So, a dragon it was.

Puneet, the tattoo maker and my karta dharta of those two odd hours was a huge guy with equally

huge tattoos on both his hands and on left side of his neck. I am not going to

get into the workings of the preparation. But he did give me chance to open the

new needle all by myself to assure it is new and unused. The dragon I chose was

of size 4 inch by 2 inch. That’s quite a big one in true sense. Of course the

color I chose for the body was black and for wings I went with dark blue as it

looked awesome on paper. The procedure took about 90 odd minutes. And not even

once I cried or screamed much to the disappointment of the lady. So, there was

I 2 hours later with a dragon on my left arm saying Hi to me.

However, you need to know few things before you go for it.

Like, the removal of a permanent tattoo is doubly expensive than getting it

done in the first place. And even if you get rid of it, it might leave an ugly

scar. There are few myths surrounding it. That you may fall sick, you will get

allergic reaction and so on. But they are all bull sh!t. its been 3 days now for

me and I am alive and kicking. Nonetheless, you need to take care of few things

as mentioned below.


Avoid exposure to direct sun.

2) Wear cotton and do not let synthetic and nylon come in contact with it. If

wearing a synthetic/nylon cloth, put a cotton tee or cover the area tattooed

with a cotton fabric.

3) Do not put hot water. Use only cold water. If habituated of taking bath with

hot water, cover the area first.

4) Apply Neosporin ointment 4 times a day for the first three days on the tattooed

area and switch to coconut oil after 3 days.

5) After applying coconut oil first few times, observe closely. If skin gets

rashes in the surrounding area, stop using coconut oil and switch to Johnson’s

baby oil.

So, these are just few things to be kept in mind.  Ah,

who says the job is over after it is done? But they are no big deal tasks and

can be followed without much difficulty.

So, I leave you now at this point making many wonder

whether to go for it or not. It’s all personal choice and given right kind of

treatment by right person, it can be quite pleasant experience.  And rest

of you who are not wondering and are quite sure you will never do something

like this; come on, start admiring my tattoo at least.
