How Experts123 Helped Me: Teenage Tattoo

We got another thank you from one of our experts. A woman was in the middle of dealing with a difficult 14 year old son who wanted a tattoo of his favorite band across his wrist. She looked on Experts123 for tattoo alternatives, and here's what she wrote:

"Dear Experts123,

I can't thank you enough for saving me the agony of a 14 year old son with a tattoo. He has been bugging me to get a tattoo of his favorite band on his wrist for a long time now, and I didn't know what to do. On top of the wrist being one of the most visible places for a tattoo (as in he won't be able to hide it from future employers), I feared having it was something that he might regret later on in life.

I am very active on Experts123, and I decided to take some time and search some information about tattoos on the site. I searched tattoo dangers and immediately got results. Not only did this search outline the dangers of getting a tattoo in a parlor, but also the potentially fatal risks of at-home tattoos (with a Bic pen? I had never heard of that).

In a mini-panic attack, I decided to look up tattoo alternatives and immediately found henna as one of the top alternatives to permanent tattoos. I found that henna was not dangerous, and washes off in a few days. I thought to myself that this was genius because my son could re-tattoo himself with every fad he encounters without the life-long commitment of a permanent tattoo.

Thank you Experts123 for helping me (and my family) get through this. I knew I could count on you to give me the right information from people who know a lot about this stuff."
