Avoid the pain and misery that a lot of people have gone through when they got their tattoos.
You must be eighteen years old to get a tattoo. This is not because the age of legal consent, but also because most of your physical growth has stopped at that point.
When the time comes, here are a few recommendation to prepare yourself to get the tattoo done in a comfortable condition:
Eat a light, healthy meal two or four hours before your tattooing appointment, or at least drink some juice or non diet soda to keep your blood sugar level up. Never go to a tattooist under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Bring a friend or family member, if that will help you sooth your nervousness and give your somewhat strength
Take along your favorite CD or MP3 player to listen to while tattoo is being placed.
Come to the studio in comfortable, loose clothing. Take a shower or bath beforehand, be clean. You may have to refrain from shower or bath for a few days after the procedure, be prepared for that.
Get a good night rest the night before the procedure.
Absolutely NO drugs or alcohol before your appointment, come in sober.
