Think before you ink!

Tattoo Newbies Choices

Tattoos are permanent; they apparently they are meant to last a lifetime. Once you've done it, there is no turning back. Getting rid of it unless you are willing to have laser treatments. Be conscious of what you are getting into and never do it on a dare or when intoxicated. Never do one on the spar of the moment.  You need to think long and hard about your decision to get inked. You could get up one morning and regret a choice you made without thinking.

The worst tattoos are those made by people on drugs or alcohol.  If you are not thinking clearly, you are sure to make a wrong decision.  A misspelled or cute flower on a man's chest could be an inappropriate choice.  Especially if the name you tattoo is incorrect or your breakup with your sweetheart.   Good-intentioned ring or bracelet friendship tattoos may turn out like barbed wire around your wrist. That's terrible body art that you should ward off.

Tattoo Newbies Mistakes

Always know what you want before you go to the tattoo parlor.  You may make a hasty decision just because it looks good in a picture. There are many generic tattoo designs online or in catalogs. The plan you choose should have special meaning to you.  It could be a symbol, a flower,  or a tribal design. . Whatever it is making sure it is what you want on your body.

If you want your tattoo to be yours alone, you can also draw or have someone create it for you.  If you are not an artist, you should consult with a tattoo artist to determine what type of tattoo you want.  The larger the design, the more detail you will have in your tattoo.  If there are errors, they usually occur when an artist freehands the design directly onto the skin.   A tattoo stencil may be what you want the artist to use for your plan.  This way you will be able to see the exact size and placement before the actual tattooing.

Tattoo Newbies Decisions

You need to decide at this time whether you want colors and which ones you want.  A figure that looks good on paper may not look good on the skin depending on the tone of your skin. The darker the skin tone, the less color you want to use in the design.

Once you make your decision, you need to determine which part of the body you will use.  Large tattoos require large areas of the body for proper placement.  Other considerations are the policy you have to follow at work.  You may need to keep your design hidden, and that will be a factor your decision.  If you place of employment does not tolerate tattoos, you will need to keep yours obscure or small.  In either case, decide early, and you won't make a regrettable decision.

Tattoo Newbies Consider the cost

Make sure you have enough cash because good tattoos are not cheap, and inexpensive symbols are not right. A small 2-inch design can be anywhere between 50 to 200 dollars.  The detail you want will affect the cost. Many artists charge by the hour instead of by the piece. Colored tattoos cost a lot more than simple one tone ones.  Ask your friends for reference to good artists.

If you brought your design and you want the tattoo artist to redraw it, the price will go up. If you want an original design, you can expect it to cost you extra. Some people don't mind paying more for a unique plan to ensure you don't end up with the same tattoo as someone else.

Tattoo Newbies Summary

Finally, if you are getting the first tattoo, you should bring a friend to your session.  Tattoo needles can be scary, and you may need some support during this course.  The second meeting will be more comfortable since you already know what to expect.
