Penis tattoos are very fashionable nowadays. You probably can't stop them from getting one, but you can offer some advice on how to lessen the chances of infection down there. Tell them to use a penis health creme called Man1 Man Oil. This creme contains Vitamins A and E, which will limit bacteria, soothe the pain and aid in the recovery process.
