The most common question I have heard regarding tattooing is, does it hurt? Everyone’s tolerance is different so the level of pain really varies with each person. Yes, it does hurt but it is tolerable. It is sort of a “scratching feeling”. The beauty of a professional tattoo and the pride associated with it far outweighs the needle pokes here and there.
The cost of tattoos is one of the first questions that is asked. The old saying “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true than in tattooing. Who ever you get your tattoo from, make sure they are a true artist that has had proper training at a certified shop. There are many people tattooing that will ink you up for a low price, but a cheap price, usually means a poor quality tattoo. Eventually you will have to pay more to cover it up. Look for a quality artist, and be willing to pay for it. NEVER haggle over the price of a tattoo. It is disrespectful to the artist. Remember, your tattoo is a piece of art you will wear for life.
This question is one of the more odd ones. A tattoo is something that you wear for the rest of your life so, only you can really answer this question. You can get whatever you want, and whatever your artist is willing to do. You can choose a piece of flash (image off the wall) or you can have someone draw a custom piece for you. As far as where you should get it goes, just keep in mind what you do for work and the type of social circles you are in.
**TATTOO CARE SECTION** HOW LONG DO I LEAVE THE BANDAGE ON? So, you just got your fresh tattoo and you want to take good care of it! From this point on, your artist is not responsible for any infection or problems you may have with your tattoo if you don’t take proper care of it. It is very important that you follow your artists instructions. Your new tattoo is sort of a wound. Open flesh is a breeding ground for bacteria and infection.
