There are a few little things everyone should know before they walk into a tattoo parlor and get inked. First thing is first you need to be 110% sure of the tattoo design you have picked out. Don’t rush this decision, you will be living with it for the rest of your life. Absolutely do not walk in and just pick something off the wall you WILL regret it if you do. Another very important decision that needs to be made is which tattoo shop you decided to get inked at. Visit tattoo shops in your area and talk to the artist or just ask people you know who have tats and find out who did there’s. That’s how I found my tattoo shop. One of my college friends had several very nice tattoos and I asked where he got them done at and that’s how I choose my tattoo artist.
There are a few little things that you should do before you get inked that will help the healing process and there are a few things that you should stay away from as well. The best thing you can do for your self is start taking Vitamin C and Zinc to help boost your immune system. Also you can make sure the area you want your tat is moisturized and the skin is healthy. Absolutely DO NOT drink any alcohol 72 hours before you are going to get inked. Alcohol thins your blood. So that means when you are getting tattooed you will bleed heavily and this makes the tattoo artists job even more difficult to do clean work. Also if you have a little cold or some sort of virus or are just feeling under the weather DO NOT get a tattoo wait until you have gotten better.
