Some tips for your first tattoo

First af all, make sure you are not allergic to the ink. An allergic reaction could be harmful, so it is better if you see your doctor before. After that, it is time to look for the tattoo artist. Always remember that a high-quality tattoo is not cheap. So, if somebody has low prices, do not trust them.

Ask the tattoo artists’ advice about the type of ink you would like and choose the part of your body where you want it. Do not rush this decisions, but consider every alternative. For your first tattoo, you will definitely want one in plain sight: just remember that in some body parts ink can more easily fade, for example on your hands.

One of the biggest concerns is pain. Of course there are more sensitive areas, but you need to know that pain is very subjective. However, the most sensitive body parts are the inner part of the arm, ribs, thighs, hips and feet.

Do not get your tattoo in summer, because the sun may damage it. Your tattoo will heal in about 3 weeks.

If you want, you can also remove your ink. However, even if it is possible, think very well about what to do.
