Choosing Your Artist

When choosing your tattoo artist, pick someone that you trust and can see yourself having fun with during the tattoo process.

Most tattoo artists have some sort of online portfolio, whether it be a website or Instagram profile.

Make sure you take the time to browse their body of work before choosing them as your tattoo artist.

Once you’ve decided on your tattoo, wait a few months (one year is even better) before moving forward, to ensure that you’re making a sound decision.

Don’t Shop Around for the Cheapest Artist

Bargain basement prices can mean you’re risking the quality of your tattoo and the cleanliness of the equipment. Of course, this doesn’t have to be the case, but it’s something you should keep in mind.

If someone is willing to do your tattoo for $12, you should definitely pass on that. Even if you just want a small tattoo.

If you can’t afford to be tattooed by the artist you want, I recommend saving up your money until you can afford it. You won’t regret waiting, but you may regret not waiting.

Make Sure The Artist Uses New Supplies

To avoid contracting an infection or serious illness, your artist should always use new ink cups, disposable needles, napkins, and gloves.

When it’s time to get your tattoo, make sure you see them opening the needle package to ensure that it’s a new needle.
