Tattoos are a form of art, and people have been getting them on their bodies since ancient times. In the days gone by, tattoos were a mark or tag signifying one's social status, rank, or identification. But today, they have become more of a personal statement or choice, and a design or shape to be tattooed can be virtually anything under the sun. Generally, a person chooses to tattoo something that can act as a permanent reminder of a feeling, an event, person, situation, belief, etc.

Now, where on the body to get a tattoo inked, also becomes a point to ponder over, since, unfortunately, many companies today, prohibit their employees from exposing their tattoos while at work. Lip tattoos fulfill these requirements; they are almost invisible, until the tattoo bearer shows them off. Special efforts need not be taken to hide this tattoo, which makes it the best option for those who want a tattoo without violating any rules or jeopardizing their job.
Even though these tattoos are very convenient, they have a few limitations to them. One can go in for small, petite designs, as the space available on the inside of the lips is very limited. Small words and symbols are what most people opt for. Given below are few stencils that you may like.
One thing that should never be done is peeling your tattoo. You might feel itchy, but please remember that, since your tattoo is in such a delicate place, you should not rub your tattoo or run your tongue over it. Always remember to take good care of your tattoo, and follow the aftercare instructions given by your tattoo artist.
