While Christmastime and the Holiday season is a blast for most, it’s also pretty hectic. For that reason many people who plan on getting inked may put it off until a later date. However, if you take a moment to reconsider you’ll find that December may very well be the best time of the year to get a tattoo. Here’s why.
4 Reasons Why You Should Get a Tattoo During the Holiday Season
You Can Add It To Your Christmas Wish List
You know what’s awesome? Free sh*t. And if you plan on a tattoo, getting a quality one for free is the best possible scenario. That’s the primary reason why this may be the prime time of the year for getting inked. You can put a gift certificate for a tattoo studio near you on your Christmas wish list. The amount (contingent upon how deserving you’ve been this year!) may cover a significant portion or all of your tattoo, especially if you convince family members to chip-in. If you live in Greater Vancouver BC or Toronto ON, give gift givers the phone number for an Adrenaline Studios in the area and let them take care of the rest.
It’s a Way to Celebrate the Season
If you’re a big fan of the Holidays then getting a tattoo now is definitely a great idea because you can consider it a way to celebrate the season – a present to yourself, so to speak. Better yet, you can get a Christmas and/or winter themed tattoo design to express your deep affinity for this festive time of the year.
You’re Covered Up and Protected
Getting a tattoo in the spring or summer can put a damper on your plans because it requires that you stay out of the sun more than you may typically desire. It also may restrict your outdoor activities when there is on-body impact involved, with little clothing beyond a t-shirt to protect the constitution of your fresh tattoo. However, if you consider the winter, especially during the Holidays when you’re bundled up (read: padded), often indoors, and frequently sitting on the sofa with a cup of cocoa while binge-waching Home Alone (1 and 2), Elf, Scrooge (with Bill Murray) and other Holiday favorites, you are giving your new ink the best chance to heal. Protection and rest is the best medicine for a healing tattoo and the Holiday season can deliver on that better than most times of the year.
Gives You a Head Start on Your New Year Resolution
Did you know that a new tattoo perfectly coincides with New Year resolutions? It’s true. The design can be thematically tied to your goal/s of making a big change in your life while showing tangible commitment to its fulfillment.
