Penile Tattoos

penis-tattoo-rotatorThe thought of getting a penis tattoo might bring most men to doubt.

However, there are some robust enough to let the needle on their underpants. This is a YOLO type of behavior.

While the procedure of a penile tattoo is the same as getting a tattoo on any other part of the body, there are possibly genuine dangers and risks included. The tattoo on your penis will be permanent just like any other organ tattoo.

It is recommended to follow the famous saying:

“Think before you ink.”

This mantra might be particularly true in this situation. Men considering a penis tattoo should know about the dangers, reactions, the best penis care systems, and post-inking sanitation techniques.

Potential Dangers and Risks of Penis Tattoos

There several side effects that might be possible and risky. For the official guidelines, read the FDA safety guide.[1] Here are the most frequent ones:

  • Permanent Erection: Otherwise called priapism, the condition is not as much fun as it might sound. Priaprism happens when blood is physically not able to leave the penis, bringing on severe engorgement and potential nerve harm if left untreated. While not all penis tattoos lead to priapism, it is a manifestly obvious danger, especially with a tattoo craftsman who is less experienced with tattooing that particular body part.
  • Contamination: As with any tattoo, there is a risk of disease. The risk of illness and infection happens by unsanitary conditions and dirty tools. An expert tattoo artist must do any sort of tattooing in a perfect saloon with new, sterile needles.
  • Skin Harm: Having a tattooed penis can easliy lead to the scarring of fragile skin and hidden tissues. Consider the skin on the penis as a thin crust, which is overlying a thick layer of muscle. The skin of the penis is considerably more delicate in nature and more sensitive to scarring. The process of tattooing can leave a scar up for more sensitive-skinned people, which is not something most men need on their penis.
  • Nerve Harm: In addition to the possibility that the needle may create priapism, it might also lead to permanent nerve damage in the region. The penis has millions of nerve endings and, sadly, a minor slip of the wrist could leave the person receiving the tattoo with repulsive nerve harm.

Post-Tattoo Penis Care

tattooed-penis-elephantThere are approaches to avert or decrease reactions after penis tattooing. Be sure to keep the entire skin area clean while it is recovering and always use proper hygiene to diminish the danger of contamination. Watch out for signs of disease. Seek medical help after a few days if the skin experiences redness, change of color, or soreness.

The long-term health of a tattoo begins with your tattoo artist. Needles never have to be reused to prevent the transmission of blood related infections, for example, hepatitis and HIV. It is likewise reasonable to inquire as to whether they have done penile tattoos before, and ask to see photographs of the work.

Once the penis has come back to its natural state, besides the new work of art, men must use a penis creme which contains essential supplements, vitamins and minerals as a component of their usual penis care schedule. A top notch penis creme might diminish scarring, reduce the risk of infection, and enhance the strength of the penis skin in general.

Fact: Sometimes penis tattoos are done by fans to support their appreciation for their teams.[2]

Here at AHCAF, we do not encourage such behaviors as getting a penis tattoo. You should focus more on tools and other male enhancement practices.

Following my bowel cancer .. I decided to get tattoos all over myself .. ( I use to think tats were horrid)
One of my tat , proud of of it , is an elephant tat on my penis ..the head of the elephant is above my penis , the trunk is obviously the penis .. it is extremely well done and extremely please with it … it was not painful at all and would do it again.
Ps : I had a awkward uncontrolled erection
During the session but it went back down quickly .. the tattooist was a total pro and did not react negatively about it .. he just told that it’s something that can happen..

I was castrated and my young wife insisted I have the date I was castrated tat on my groin and that the head of my dick be tattooed with the Eunuch’s symbol. And yes it did need to be touched up several times as the glans “head” of my dick did not take the ink well and She had to redo me several times. P.S. It did not hurt, but being castrated did make me sweat.

Hello all: During the summer of 2019, I got the head of my penis (glans) tattooed with a shamrock. I got it there because such tattoos are rare and I love being unique. I am also a male fetish model so it adds a little extra zip to the naughty photos. I must say that my penis did not have to be hard but it did have to be squeezed somewhat to make it tight. As for pain, it certainly did not hurt any more than my other 8 tattoos on my body. I knew it was being done, but to be totally honest, it really did not hurt much at all. I do have a fairly high tolerance for pain however, so this may have something to do with it. The only issue I had, was that the ink did not take right away and the artist had to go over it 2 or 3x to get a good solid colour. I had no issues with it and having my penis tattooed does make it more interesting for fetish pics as it is so unusual. I plan to get the rest of the shaft done in a barbwire motif.
