Tattoos are a subject of much debate, with some people finding them beautiful works of art, while others may find them abhorrent. No matter what opinion you may have on the matter, however, most can agree that tattoos should always fall in the category of a “Desire” and not a “Financial Consideration”. That is why I previously wrote about tattoos, as if you really must have one, it should come after essential needs like food, utilities, basic clothing, medical needs, and life insurance have been taken care of.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of life insurance, especially since it is one of the least expensive forms of coverage you can buy. It provides a safety net for your loved ones in the case of your untimely death, something that cannot be changed, put off, or altered. Though there are many things that most people would put ahead of life insurance, it is the most important insurance you can own as it is the only one that covers you for something you cannot buy your way out of death.
I have never met a widow who said her husband had enough life insurance, and I don’t think there is anyone who would look back and wish her husband had chosen a nice tattoo over a life insurance policy in hindsight. While the timing of getting a tattoo can be put off indefinitely, life insurance is something that should be taken care of sooner rather than later, as it is an essential part of providing for your family’s financial future.
