How to prepare for your first tattoo?
First of all, don’t worry! Before the session get some sleep, eat well and come in a good mood.
How to prepare a design?
The best way is to come on a free consultation, choose the best place and size for your tattoo and make sure you like everything. If you can’t come on a consultation, all final preparations can be done directly before the session.
How artist transfers the design on your body?
The artist uses special transfer paper to put your design on your skin. Some tattoos artists do the design “freehand” by drawing directly on you.
How long the session lasts?
It depends on the design. If the tattoo is small, but detailed it will take more time. If the tattoo is big, but not very much detailed, it will take less time.
What about the aftercare?
Tattoo artist makes 50% of a good tattoo and the other 50% is your aftercare. That’s why you need to follow your artist’s or studios’ recommendations.
The most important things:
Is it painful?
Small tattoos are not painful. Sessions more than 3 hours can cause a sense of discomfort, though the pain is bearable. We don’t usually use anesthetics as they can affect the healing process.
Some body parts are more painful to tattoo. This scheme shows them in red color
