A neck tattoo is an extremely common choice for people who want a small tattoo that may be completely invisible on a daily basis. Popular designs are not only inscriptions, abstract motifs, but also animal or floral motifs. What should you know about a tattoo in such a place?
Is it a painful place?
We must be clear that the neck and the nape of the neck are extremely sensitive places. This is due to nothing else than the fact that we have very little fatty tissue in these places. Unfortunately, the needle gets stuck close to the bone during tattooing. This is therefore more of the painful places to get a tattoo. Everything, of course, depends on the pain threshold of each individual. A tattoo on the neck will be slightly more painful than in other places of our body. If we are very afraid of pain, in some salons we can even use anesthesia. This will make us feel more comfortable.
How to take care of a neck tattoo?
The care of a tattoo on the nape of the neck as well as in every other place is very important. We are talking about during healing as well as after it. If you take care of your tattoo, you will be able to enjoy not only a beautiful design, but also a very clear one.
The healing process of tattoos usually takes about four weeks. During this time you should avoid swimming pool, solarium or exposure to natural sun. So called epilation should also not be performed on the area. Remember to wash the skin regularly with warm water and a mild antibacterial soap. It is also very important to moisturize the skin properly. Literally every few hours the area should be lubricated with a greasing ointment. In order to speed up the healing process, remember that your tattoo should breathe freely. Avoid clothes or scarves made of artificial materials.
You should also know that the end of the healing process is not the end of care. After about a month you should still take care of the skin with the tattoo. It is worth applying any specialist creams for tattoo, which are to prevent it from fading. Let’s not forget about an extremely important issue, that is protecting the skin from harmful UV radiation. Before exposing your skin to the sun every time, apply creams with very high SPF protection.
At the very end let’s say something about the price of a tattoo. It depends on several very important factors. The final price is affected by the size of the tattoo, the complexity of the design and the location of the tattoo studio. Moreover, the tattooing technique and ink color are also very important. The price of a small tattoo starts from two hundred zlotys. Big designs cost even a few thousand zlotys.
