When you’re deciding what to get tattooed most people start with what they like. If they like something then it’s an easy choice, if there’s a specific thing that has meaning that also makes the choice easy. But what happens if you’re not sure what you want to get tattooed? What if you’re not 100% if you want it on your arm or on your side? There’s a lot of decisions that come with getting tattooed.
There are a lot of cool apps for people who want to get tattooed or who like tattoos. Piercing & Tattoo FREE for example, from the iStore is a way to try out different piercings and tattoos on your own selfie images before committing to making any permanent decisions.
