When it comes to getting a tattoo there are several common questions that everyone wants to know. No question is stupid if you truly do not know the answer to it. Below is a list of the most common questions people ask when thinking about getting a tattoo and the answers to those questions.
Q. Does it hurt?
A. Yes, getting a tattoo does hurt. Of course it all depends where on your body you are getting your tattoo and how bad it will hurt. Also everyone has a different pain tolerance so one person may say it didn’t hurt too bad while another one will disagree. Some of the most painful places to get a tattoo are on your feet, shines, elbows, the outside of your ankle, chest, ribcage and anywhere on your spine.
Q. Is it expensive?
A. It can get expensive depending on how big your tattoo is and how much detail is involved. A typical tattoo will start out at $50 and go up from there. If you are worried about money keep your tattoo design small.
Q. Which color ink is better?
A. The color of the tattoo ink is purely a self preference. Some prefer black ink while others prefer color ink.
Q. How much care does a tattoo require?
A. A tattoo doesn’t require too much care but there are some things that you need to do for your tattoo. First of all you need to make sure you put your neosporin on your tattoo at least twice a day when you first get it and do not put lotion on it until it has completely healed. Also stay out away from the pool, ocean or taking a bath, submerging your tattoo in water is a big no no. Also stay out of the sun when you first get your tat. After it has healed be sure to put a sunblock of 45 or higher on it. This keeps it from fading and looking newer longer.
Q. Should you tip the artist?
A. Absolutely. Tip them some where between 15% to 20%
