The first thing you do is, if you have a tattoo, make sure it really gets there: The second thing, if you’re not a professional, is just to be sure. Don’t believe in a tattoo artist who tells you the tattoo is “right” or “realistic.” I’ve seen a lot of people get tattoos that are not close to being “just right.” Take your time, have a conversation with the artist and pay attention to the detail.
I can never find my tattoo at home. What happens then? If you are able to find an online location (website) that will have it, then that is your best bet. If you still can’t find it, you can call the number on the back (if you live in the country!). The number on the back of the license is for licensing issues. But you should keep in mind you can always find it a local tattoo parlor or a local tattoo artist.
Do I have to get a license to get a tattoo in the First World? Yes. Most countries have some type of mandatory licensing, often with fees. Your country should be free of licensing.
What if I am not eligible to practice my profession? You can become a licensed tattoo artist as long as you have a high school diploma or higher. You can practice in most states of the United States and Canada. The federal government doesn’t license and regulate tattoo shops (it just requires that licenses be provided to the licensed establishment). But it is not a total black hole, even though we’re talking about thousands of locations.
Where can I find more articles and information? If you need more information, look on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website (www.health.gov). There are also many websites that detail and show examples of your tattoo.

Kendrick references how he “got in trouble” once, because of a girl who used to date his old friends.
Lamar used to live in Oakland, California, a major hip-hop hub. The song was released just as he was getting back from college in Texas.
As expected, the most recent
