Tips to Make Your First Tattoo Experience a Pleasant One (Part Two)
First Tattoo Experience (Part Two) Getting your first tattoo is a complete experience and one that you should enjoy. Yes, it’s ok to be a little nervous, but this is a story you’ll tell and remember for a long time. You should enjoy it despite your nerves and the pain. A great way to do that is to make sure you’re ready, that you’re prepared. Below you’ll find a list of tips to make your first tattoo experience a pleasant one.
You might want to choose a smaller design or a more discreet area for your first tattoo. Dip your toes in the water instead of cannonballing in. Of course, the choice is yours. But, it’s a big decision and something you’ll have to live with every day so you might want to avoid areas like your hands or neck for your first time. Plus, you’ll want to consider which areas are the most and least painful. It’s always nice to tattoo an area that causes less pain to ease yourself into the tattooing experience.
Don’t be Cheap
Tattoos are expensive for a reason. It takes a lot of time and ink to create these works of art. Plus, it’s a lifetime masterpiece on your skin. Good tattoos won’t come cheap, but they’re worth the money. This isn’t the time to “bargain hunt.” If you do, you’ll likely end up with a “tattoo fail” that will cost you more to remove it than a great tattoo would have cost you in the beginning. So, focus more on what’s really important like the artist’s skill and experience, and the shop’s health standards. Those are far more important than price.
Wear Comfortable Clothes
First Tattoo Experience (Part Two)
The tattoo artist will need access to the area you wish to have tattooed, so make sure you’re not wearing something that makes reaching the area difficult. Plus, depending on the intricacy and size of the tattoo, you might spend several hours sitting in one place, so make sure you wear comfortable clothes. Wearing loose clothes is always beneficial because you won’t wind up putting pressure on your newly tattooed, and sensitive, skin.
If you follow these tips your first tattoo experience will go a lot smoother and you can actually enjoy it. So, take a moment to look over the list and make sure you’re ready. If you are, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to be part of your experience.
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.
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.
