Small, large, visible or hidden under the sweater ..? No matter what kind of tattoo you want, there are some things you should think about before you go under the needle.
Tattoo artist is not a protected title in Norway.
In principle, this means that anyone can acquire the equipment and get started without really knowing what he or she is doing. the vast majority are still serious, but you should take a background check before you leave any tattoo away at your skin.
Check with friends and family, find out who has the most satisfied customers, review praised albums to the tattooist.
Then you get an idea of how they work.
Each tattoo artist has their own way to draw on, so be sure you choose the right one for you.
Talk to him or her to tattoo you, make sure you understand each other, and be clear on what you want. For example, for a portrait in black and white on the arm, go to a tattoo artist who specializes in this.
Think carefully about what you really want, search the web, cut out pictures from magazines and make a collage of inspiration, talking with friends. Simply: do research! Many some artists will be happy to draw the tattoo, go back with inspiration your photos and get help
If you can`t find out what you want, you should wait until you get the inspiration, you will not have to bee stuck with a cartoon character on your arm, which was fun then and there, but that is sooo funny two years later. Do not get a tattoo just to get a tattoo, remember that you will live with ink stain your life.
It's allowed to think strategically when choosing where on the body you want to tattoo you, it does not mean you are a coward. It may be that right now you do not care that everyone can see your ink, but maybe not as cool about five to ten years when, for example, your work situation is a totally different ..? Also remember that the skin becomes looser with age, and that the tattoo can change shape if you put it on the stomach, and then get pregnant.
* Dont tattoo the name of your boyfriend/girlfriend. It CAN be over between you, and then you sit there with "Nick" on the arm. Possibly not as fun if your next boyfriend/girlfriend is named "Alex".
* Do not jump on the tattoo waves. Both the motive and the placement can be superhot now, and not so hot a few years. Be original!
And especially in the area where you have many sensitive nerve endings, as in the upper body or lower back. And the bigger and more complicated design you choose, the longer it takes, the more it hurts. If you know that you usually can not stand the pain so well, you should remember this when you select the motive.
Kat Von D from LA Ink is hardcore - and apparently MUCH tolerate to pain.
Follow the instructions given to you by your tattooist, it's not something he or she says to make it difficult for you .. on the contrary it is good advice based on long experience. The advice about cleaning when you have just had the tattoo is especially important, they prevent you getting infections and thick crusts on the tattoo. And remember strong sunscreen, use sunscreen on ink!
