There are many reasons people get tattooed. And everyone, is a first-timer at some point in their tattoo journey. Whether it’s a one & done experience or tattoo collecting for a lifetime, it is still important to have an idea of what to expect when you are going to get a tattoo.
Here are some general expectations and etiquette that are good for anyone to know!
Have an idea. Just telling your artist that you want a tattoo is going to get you nowhere. You absolutely have to have an idea so that the artist can guide you in choosing a style, a template, flash, or in her/his own efforts to create a custom tattoo for you.
Have more than an idea? Bring pictures. A picture will help further refine the idea that you like. Telling your artist you want a bird and knowing what type of bird, how it looks, will go a long way in creating a satisfying piece.
Make an appointment. Though walk-ins are always welcome at most shops, if you want to guarantee your space and time, an appointment will go a long way.
Listen and be respectful. Your artist is a skilled professional who has put in years and hours upon hours to be where they are at. They know more about the art and its placement on the human body than your novice eyes. If they tell you something about where a piece will look best, they know.
Take care of the tattoo. You spent money, time, and energy in getting a tattoo. Your artist worked hard. Listen to what s/he has to say about tattoo after-care and take care of it. While touch-ups are often free, a properly cared for tattoo will heal great and last.
These are just a handful of general tips to factor in along your tattoo journey. Now let’s get you inked! Our Waikiki tattoo studio is open 7 days a week, 10a – 10p. Walk-ins are welcome, appointments guarantee your space, and we offer free consultations.
