Make Your First Tattoo Experience a Pleasant One (Part One)

First Tattoo Experience (Part One) – Tattoos are truly works of art. They’re a way to express yourself. They give the world a glimpse into who you are, what you think is beautiful, and the things you’re passionate about. Whether you’re getting a meaningful tattoo or an intricate design you think is truly stunning, you’re adding art and beauty to your body. Still, no matter how great your first tattoo is, you still might feel a little nervous. Don’t worry, that’s to be expected. Below you’ll find a few tips to make your first tattoo experience a pleasant one.

Don’t be in a Rush

You want your tattoo to turn out exactly the way you imagined it. In order for the tattoo artist to accomplish this, they’ve got to design it perfectly, and then position the sketch onto your body with precise detail. This process alone can take some time. Don’t rush it. You want your tattoo artist to take their time and get every detail right. This is permanent after all. Don’t be afraid to communicate your thoughts and desires during this process. It’s your tattoo, you should have a voice in how it turns out.

Come Prepared

If you know exactly what you want, you’ll need to bring a clear, detailed picture of the tattoo you desire. It shouldn’t be too small or grainy. If you want to mix two tattoo designs, you should be able to clearly mark what details you want from each, in a clear concise way.

Don’t be Shy

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Now’s not the time to clam up and keep your thoughts to yourself. Tattoo artists are used to first-timers, so you certainly won’t be the first one flooding them with questions. They want your experience to go smoothly and satisfactorily, so they’d prefer you ask your questions and feel comfortable rather than stay silent and regret it later. A good artist will always take the time to explain the answers to your questions and make sure you’re completely comfortable before continuing on.
