Getting the Perfect First Tattoo

tattoo Getting your first tattoo can be a daunting experience to say the least. There are many concerns that you will want to address before you make an appointment. There are health concerns that you want to be aware of too. Take the time to address these issues well ahead of time and the whole experience will be much less stressful.

Where to get your first tattoo done is an obvious, but no less important consideration. Many opt to get it done in their neighborhood or home town, while others will have it done while they are traveling so that they can commemorate the experience. Which ever you choose, be sure to make certain that the establishment is clean and sterile.

You also want to check out the qualifications of the individual artist who is going to work on your ink. How long has he been in business and does he have a portfolio of satisfied clients. If you have a friend who can give you a personal referral then you can be assured that you will be dealing with someone who comes highly recommended.

It is not unheard of for some tattoo parlors to give a guarantee for their work. Be sure to ask if you particular choice offers this. It is comforting to know that they stand behind the quality of their work and will not stop until you are satisfied with the final result.

Prices can be pretty high for tattoos, especially the larger ones. You should do a little comparative shopping to get a feel for the market in your area. Don't choose a parlor just because it costs the least amount. Often a higher priced shop can charge those prices because their work is superior.

Feel comfortable asking questions. If your inquiries are brushed off or not taken seriously then you do not want to get your tattoo done there. This could be a red flag of the time and attention you will be given when it really matters.

By taking time to implement the suggestions I have outline above, you will be well on your way to your first tattoo being a great experience.
