Are Hand Tattoos a Bad Idea?

Each person must have a serious and honest conversation with themselves about their reasons for wanting a hand tattoo and what its effects will be. This conversation may include input from others but ultimately you must do what is right for YOURSELF regardless of what others think.

You cant make any decisions based on what your culture, friends, or associates think. You have to be ready to think very critically about your own life. For instance: You may not be able to say beyond a shadow of a doubt that your life will be able to accommodate a hand tattoo in the future. If you are not prepared to accept the life-long commitment of a hand tattoo then don’t do it. And do it just because you think you are prepared. Most people don’t know what the rest of their lives will be like and can’t say for sure they will always be able to do whatever they want. You have to be a very certain type of person to be that sure of yourself.

How Much Do Hand Tattoos Cost?

Average tattoo prices range from $30 to $100 for sizes under 2×2, between $100 and $200 for a 3×3, and around $250 or more for a 4×4 tattoo. Prices depend on where you live, the experience level of the artist, their hourly rates, and if it’s a custom tattoo.

Do Hand Tattoos Hurt?

The tops and insides of the hands, as well as fingers, are popular places to be tattooed. Being tattooed anywhere on your hands can cause severe pain. The skin here is very thin, and it contains numerous nerve endings that can trigger pain when hit by a tattoo needle.
