It’s that time of the year when Netflix, Prime, and other streamers are teeming with Holiday favorites. Within the films is one tale that in addition to traditional life lessons, offers important takeaways for people who have been thinking about a tattoo. Is it Miracle on 34th Street? Perhaps It’s a Wonderful Life? Maybe Die Hard? While each of these include revelations that may apply, they don’t tackle the topic quite like the ultimate classic – A Christmas Carol (aka Scrooge). Charles Dickens’ narrative with its Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future function as an enlightening tale for anyone considering a tattoo. How? Let’s find out!
How A Christmas Carol Offers Valuable Lessons Regarding Your Past, Present, and Future Tattoo
Ghost of Christmas Past
Do you have a tattoo from years ago that you regret? Then the Ghost of Christmas Past visits you every single time you look in the mirror. The good news, is that you can turn back the clock on the bad decision regarding design, tattooist, studio, or whatever led to an ink job that you no longer want. Modern laser technology has advanced to the point that you will very well likely be rid of the tattoo to make way for a brighter present and future to come. Sleight of Hand (SOH) Tattoo is proud to announce that we are offering premium laser tattoo removal in 2023 and beyond. We will exorcise your Ghost of Christmas Past within a few sessions (results contingent upon on how large and dark the tattoo is). Contact us in advance to schedule your consultation.
Ghost of Christmas Present
Whether you are having a bad tattoo removed, or your life lesson thus far is that you have yet to get the tattoo you’ve always wanted, you are now being visited by the Ghost of Christmas Present. Take advantage by getting that right tattoo for you, today. SOH has created a guide for how to choose a tattoo studio, and another for what to look for in a tattoo artist so that you make the right decision. Moreover, take your time to read through our blog, which is filled with insights and ideas for the tattoo you currently plan to get. Celebrate the arrival of the Ghost of Christmas Present by giving yourself the gift of a new tattoo that you’ll never regret!
Ghost of Christmas Future
When getting your new tattoo (as per above) be sure to welcome the Ghost of Christmas Future. This particular specter can play an important role in the design that you choose in the present. If you plan to get another tattoo (or many more) in the years ahead, you may choose a small tattoo design today that can be expanded upon as you get the resources (time and budget). For example, if you eventually want a sleeve tattoo, begin with a small design at the top or bottom of your arm and work your way along as the years pass, Pick a design that works great on its own, but will also make sense as it expands. Organic designs like vines and flowers or traditional Japanese tattoo style of koi, dragons, and other features blend well to create a mural-esque scene in your future.
