* Tattoo cannot be removed: Tattoo can be removed through a laser treatment leaving no scars behind.

* Tattoo will fade when you get old: Tattoo needs maintenance. You need to moisturise your tattoo at least once in a day.

* Skin allergy and blood poisoning: People have a mindset that getting a tattoo can lead to skin allergies. With the right artist and hygiene factor, it doesn’t come up as a problem.
