Hopefully your day in the chair to get that dream tattoo of yours is fast approaching and you do need to know ahead of time how to prepare you self both for a good tattoo experience and for the longevity of your new tattoo.
We have broken down for you the top 5 things you need to think about and know ahead of time in order to prepare your mind and your body.
So let's start at the beginning, the first step in preparing for your new tattoo is to:
Work With Your Artist
This step kind of goes hand in hand with finding the right tattoo artist for you, but is still separate because not everyone who finds their dream tattoo idea bothers to talk it over properly with their chosen artist.
An experienced artist can bring so much to your dream tattoo, umpteen things that you probably have not even thought of, that will improve the overall look of your tattoo.
Spend Some Time With Your Artist
As well as the above, spending the time working with your artist on your dream tattoo idea will also instill confidence that the artist understands the exact look you want and will be able to translate the image that you have in your head and apply it to your body in a way that will impress you and all your friends.
This is very much a collaborative process, not only do you need to suggest ideas and the original direction you also need to be open to the ideas that your artist will present that may take the tattoo in a slightly different direction but the end destination where the two of you will arrive will be so much better then where you might have gotten too on your own without some experienced guidance.
