Things to know before getting first tattoo

A tattoo is an amazing way to flaunt your personality. Tattoos look cool and beautiful. However, you need to know a few things before getting your first tattoo so that things don’t go awry.

1. A good tattoo will not be cheap

You must know that a good tattoo will not be cheap and a cheap tattoo is not a good tattoo. The cost of a good tattoo depends on the size, color and amount of shading. The cheap tattoo artists are not trained and experienced. They are also not health conscious. Therefore, if you are keen to have a tattoo, invest in a good tattoo.

2. Check out the tattoo shop

You must check out a few tattoo parlors before taking a decision. You must ensure that the tattoo shop is clean and the staff is polite. You should also check out the pictures of their artwork.

3. Proofread

Misspelled tattoos are the most embarrassing. Therefore, you must double check the spelling when you tattoo artist is drawing it.

4. Tattoo on feet and hands fade faster

Designs on your feet and hands fade faster. Therefore, you should keep that in your mind when you opt for a tattoo.

5. Treat it like a test day

You should have a good night’s sleep and eat a hearty breakfast before going to the tattoo parlor. Treat that day like a test day as your body will go through a lot of stress.

6. 15 minutes pain

The pain will start reducing after 15 minutes. Your adrenaline will block some of the pain receptors of your body.

These are some of the things that you must keep in mind before getting your first tattoo.
