How to Choose a Tattoo Artist

When you decide to get a tattoo, you need to know how to choose a tattoo artist. Information about their background and history are important bits of information that will assist you in moving forward with your decision. Here are more helpful tips and some questions you should be sure to ask when you talk to a potential tattoo artist.

How To Choose A Tattoo Artist

  1. The first thing you should find out is if the tattoo business is licensed to operate a tattoo parlor.
  2. Finding out how long the tattoo parlor has been in business is also very important – as this will tell you much about the overall reputation of the business.
  3. You should also find out the artist’s qualifications as well.  Finding out how much experience and qualifications a tattoo artists has will tell you quite a bit about what you can expect from them.
  4. You’ll also want to find out if the tattoo studio guarantees their work.  In the unlikely event that you don’t like the outcome of the tattoo, you’ll obviously want it to be fixed.  The better studios will fix it without additional charge.  Refund policies are also important, especially if you don’t like the quality or the workmanship of the tattoo.
  5. The cost is also very important.  Before you decide to get a tattoo or agree to anything, you’ll obviously want to know the full cost.  Large tattoos can be quite expensive, although even the smallest of tattoos can be expensive as well; it depends on your budget.  You can save yourself a lot of time and prevent any type of surprises by knowing the costs upfront.
  1. You should always make sure that the parlor is clean and all equipment is sanitized and cleaned after each and every tattoo.
  2. Infection is also something you’ll want to find out about.  The better tattoo artists will provide information about infections, and tell you how to prevent them.
  3. If you suffer from a fear of needles, you should always ask if there is a way to help you.  You should never feel bad about asking, as many people are afraid of needles.  If you are afraid of getting a tattoo due to the needles, you should make sure that you let your tattoo artist know.  Chances are, they may suggest applying a topical numbing cream prior to your appointment or give you some tips to make the process go as smoothly as possible.

Asking questions is never a bad thing when it comes to getting a tattoo.  If a tattoo artist hesitates to answer any question you ask or acts hasty towards you, you should always leave and find another tattoo artist.  Tattoos always have risks and concern, which is why tattoo artists should be more than willing to answer any questions that you may have.  Asking questions can help to ease your concern and make you feel better about the artist

You shouldn’t rush your decision – but instead look at what each tattoo parlor has to offer you and compare them.
