Getting Your Tattoo
When it comes to finding the perfect tattoo artist, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
First and foremost, make sure that the artist you choose is experienced and reputable. Ask around for recommendations, and do your research online. Once you’ve found a few artists that you’re interested in, schedule consultations with each of them. This will give you a chance to see their portfolios, meet them in person, and get a feel for their work.
Secondly, be prepared to bleed. Tattoos are created by puncturing the skin and injecting ink into the underlying tissue, so they will inevitably cause some bleeding.
Third, be prepared for some pain. Though everyone’s pain tolerance is different, tattoos generally do cause at least some discomfort. If you’re worried about pain, talk to your artist about ways to minimize it, such as using a numbing cream.
Finally, be sure to follow your artist’s aftercare instructions. This is very important for ensuring that your tattoo heals properly and doesn’t become infected. Aftercare typically involves keeping the tattoo clean and moist, and protecting it from sunlight.
