Will Printk() output to the standard terminal?

I've put some printk()'s in some of the filesystem files of the linux source tree to try and trace what's going on.
When I run dmesg, I can see a few of my traces, however they aren't showing as I would have expected when I then call the functions again via the terminal.

How can I call some of the system calls and see a modified output?
