PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINMENT
- Eat a big meal beforehand and bring lots of drinks and snacks.
- A lot of things affect how your body reacts to being tattooed.
Some things include:
- Blood Thinners
These substances are best to be avoided, but let your artist know if you’ve taken any.
- Bring things to help you stay comfortable during your appointment like; layered clothing, pillow, blanket, headphones, phone charger, etc.
- It is very helpful to your artist if the area you want to get tattooed has been well moisturized – the longer you’re able to have a moisturizing routine, the better!
- Dress for the tattoo – wear a tank top or shorts if necessary for the piece. Bring extra layers for the parts that aren’t getting tattooed – clients tend to get cold during sittings.
- Make sure you set aside a generous amount of time for your appointment – you don’t want your artist rushing work that’s going to be on your body forever.
