How to select a Tattoo?
Where to get them?Firstly, you have to look at these things in the shop:
- Machines with proper insulations.
- Tattooist with good hands in art.
- Proper online platform.
The shop should be clean as hospitals, as tattooing should be done in a hygienic conditions with sterilized machines. If the shop isn’t clean, just run from there as fast possible! It is not only getting tattoo, also the aftercare which will be different depending on the tested methods by artists.
Before getting?Once you have selected the tattoo and the artist with whom you want to get the tattoo. First thing do is taking proper appointment based on the time with which you are comfortable. After the time and appointment is fixed then don’t eat any heavy food like fast foods or oily food before getting tattoo. If possible clean the part of the body where you will get the tattoo (no problem if you can’t do the artist will do it for you before the tattoo process). Keep yourself relaxed and don’t think much about this as it will be over before even you think.
Take someone along with you as the process may be tiring based on the size and place of tattoo.
Finally After getting Inked!As much as time we spend before getting a tattoo, we have to spend same or more time to take care of the tattoo. It is the most important thing to do on which the life and look of your tattoo depends. Once you are done with tattoo the artist will apply lotion and cover it with bandage or wrapping sheet.Which is to protect the tattoo from the dust and dirt which will on your way to home.
Once you reach home remove the bandage as soon as possible and clean the tattoo with cold water first to remove the lotion and secretion by the wound. Then use mild soap or lotion with lesser level of pH value. After you clean it then use a clean towel to pat dry it don’t rub it or use pressure to dry it. Then comes the time to apply lotion as per the artist’s suggestion. This process has to be done twice per day for a week or fifteen days. Keep the tattoo moisturized as much as possible, don’t let it dry up. Avoid the exposure to sun as it is the worst thing to do as it will make it dull. If you can’t avoid the suns exposure then try using the sunscreen to protect the harmful rays.
