what you should know before your tattoo appointment
There are many ways you can prepare for your appointment.
We like to think of a tattoo as a team effort between you and the artist, meaning there are things that you can do leading up to the date to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
The most important thing you can do is keep the skin healthy by avoiding sunburn and abrasions, moisturizing the area, and establishing a Vitamin K and D regimen. All of these will make your skin healthier and healthier skin is easier to tattoo.
On the day of your appointment, remember to shower and wear darker clothes (we are as careful as possible but the ink does stain).
Make sure to eat a fulfilling meal, being hungry in the chair makes it harder to sit still and causes more swelling. For a longer session, we recommend bringing a snack and drink although, upon request, we will provide some on the house, to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
Finally, make sure that you are well-rested and well-hydrated when the time comes!
