Mistakes you should avoid when you are going to get a New Tattoo.
Getting a tattoo is a rite of passage for many. But considering the permanent nature of tattoos, it’s essential to think. Do your homework and make sure you’re putting yourself in capable hands.
If you’re thinking about downing some liquid courage before taking a tattoo to think again, drinking before and after getting a tattoo is a big no. Alcohol thins your blood, which means excess bleeding. When you bleed more than usual, it affects the visibility of your artist and also compromises the quality of the tattoo. Excess bleeding can also thin the ink. There’s also the fact that alcohol impairs judgment, and you don’t want to make permanent decisions while you are drunk.
Furthermore, drinking after the fact can compromise
the healing of the tattoo because of its effects on your blood. So take it easy for a bit. Getting a tattoo is a pretty big decision and should go carefully. You wouldn’t buy a car without doing your research, right.?
When deciding on a tattoo studio and a tattoo artist, this could be hard for some of you since not everyone has artistic knowledge. But you should look around and take a close look at the artwork or portfolio; some tattoo artists may specialize in tiny tattoos. For example, while others are better in black and gray realism or portraits.
Are you going too Small? Even if a small design looks great on a piece of paper, that doesn’t mean it will translate well to your skin. Tiny tattoos often wind up looking like blemishes, and trying to create an intricate design in a small place will likely lead to ink lines blurring or bleeding into one another. The scale is significant, so discuss it with your artist and listen to what he recommended.
You should always listen to your tattoo artist. If you have any doughts just contact us we will be glad to help.
