Have you been thinking about getting a tattoo? Do you know what you want? Where would you put it? There are quite a few things to consider before being permanently stamped. This is milestone-worthy so you want to make sure you're prepared to make the best of it as this memory will physically last forever. Here are some things to consider:
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
You definitely want to have something to reference. Unless if you're an open canvas the more detailed you are the better chance of you getting what you want.
KNOW YOUR ARTIST
Do your homework on this one. Thankfully there is a ton of social media out there now for people to display their work. Google them and see what surfaces. Referrals are good place to start. If you see someone with a nice tat, ask them where they got it done.
YOU GET WHAT YOU BUY
Tattoos can get quite expensive depending on the artist, their level of experience, the size of your design and how much time the artist takes to finish the task. Some artists will charge you a flat rate, while others are by the hour. Some require a deposit, some don't. Just know if you're trying to get a full back tattoo and it's under $1,000 something isn't right.
YOU MAY GET UNCOMFORTABLE
I enjoyed getting my tats. But I'm pretty sure that had to do with placement. I put my tats in places where I'm beefier. So it was more of a scratching sensation rather than a stabbing one. Know that if you are going anywhere near a bone, it will hurt a little more.
