JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - Lifestyle always shows significant change. Tattoos for example. Some tattoos are not made at the usual body points, but are inked in the armpits. This phenomenon is also popular in the United States (US).

As quoted from Menshealth, more than 7,000 instagram account users with hashtag #armpittattoo have uploaded photos of tattoos on their armpits.

To obtain maximum results, armpit hair should be shaved off prior to making the tattoo. Unfortunately, the phenomenon of this armpit tattoo apparently also has risks that need to be taken into account.

The greatest danger is the occurrence of infection. You probably already know the importance of making tattoos in a clean and reliable place, and must use sterile tools.
