If the tattoo artist tells you that your drawing will not be beautiful once on your skin or that the location you have chosen is not ideal, trust him. He knows what he is doing.
- Prepare to get hurt
Yes, it hurts. Not a lot of pain, but still enough. Especially if the room you have taken is large enough. If you want, bring in headphones. Listening to music at the same time can help “change the nonsense.”
- Stay hydrated and feed
Getting a tattoo can be very physically demanding. That’s why it’s important to come to your appointment with a full stomach and a good thirst. We suggest you bring a bottle of water and a snack.
- Take care of your new tattoo
Listen carefully to the instructions of your tattoo artist. During the first days, you have an open wound on your body. It is essential to clean it often with unscented soap. Once your tattoo has dried, create it as if your life depended on it. Avoid Polysporin or other disinfectants. Instead, favor moisturizing creams like Aveeno.
- You do not have to justify yourself to anyone
Once the tattoo is on your skin, it belongs to you. If you do not feel like talking about it, do not talk about it. It does not concern anyone except you.
