Never Do These 10 Things When Getting A Tattoo

Whether it’s your first tattoo or tenth, getting a tattoo should be a great experience, both for you and for your tattoo artist.  Make sure you’re not doing any of these, you definitely don’t want to be “that guy”!

1. Arrive under the influence

A huge no-no, come back when you’re sober.

2. Micromanage the artist

Trust is huge and constant micromanaging is not only distracting but also disrespectful.

3. Be disrespectful

Speaking of that, being polite and respectful to the artist and shop employees is critical for a good experience.  You wouldn’t like it if someone came to your place of work and was rude right? Don’t forget to show gratitude to your artist via a tip for their hard work as well.

4. Ask to copy another artist’s work

Inspiration is fine but artists are here for their own work, not someone else’s.

5. Throw up on them

Yikes. Please don’t.

6. Be rushed

It’s a process and takes time so if you don’t have the time and patience, GTFO!

7. Bring a ton of people

One or two people for support is just fine, but a crowd of annoying friends?  Definitely not.

8. Haggle the price

Back to respect, the prices are what they are so don’t be that haggler.

9. Have poor hygiene

Maybe it’s obvious, but just like everyone else, your artist doesn’t want to smell your BO.

10. Come unprepared

Getting a tattoo is a big decision and you should arrive with a plan and comfortable with what you’re getting and the artist you are working with, make sure you do your homework.
