As long as you go to a reputable artist that is following all recommended safety precautions, getting a tattoo is perfectly safe. Make sure you're fully honest about any medical conditions.
When it comes to tattoos, you get what you pay for. Yes, there are plenty of people tattooing out there that will charge very little. But, look for quality, and be willing to pay for it. Never haggle over the price of a tattoo. It is disrespectful to the artist. Think of it this way: This is a piece of art you'll wear for life.
A few days after the tattoo is completed, the skin around the tattoo starts to peel, similar to sunburn. Picking at the skin should be avoided, because doing so can damage the artwork and increase the risk of infection. 7 to 10 days after getting a tattoo, the peeling process should be completed, leaving the skin shiny, and slightly wrinkled. After two weeks, the tattoo should appear fully healed.
Everyone's pain tolerance is quite different, so it's not the best idea to take anyones answer to this question too seriously. You can minimize the discomfort by being sure to visit a professional piercer, who is seasoned and great at their job! Be sure to never be pierced with a gun, as they cause damage and definitely hurt more than being pierced properly with a hollow needle.
The answer to this question varies greatly depending on how you care for your piercing. Your overall health, whether you sleep on your new piercing or not, how it was pierced, if you touch it and many more factors play into your total healing time! As a general rule, lobes will heal in 1-2 months and any cartilage piercing takes 3-12 months.
The amount of time that a set will last is dependent on your type of nail, what products were used, and how it was applied. If applied correctly (on certain nail types) hard gels and acrylics can be five weeks without damage. Soft gel designs that are topped with hard gel last, on average, three weeks before chipping and lifting occur.
