1. Do your research when choosing a tattoo and an artist.
Don’t rush yourself when choosing an idea. You’re going to have to live with it forever.
Most artists have a speciality, think about this when choosing one. If you want a photorealistic tattoo don’t choose an artist who specializes in American Traditional, for example.
Don’t ask to have your neck/face/hands tattooed if it’s your first tattoo, you will most likely be denied.
Look into the cost of the tattoo before walking into the shop, don’t sacrifice the tattoo you want to get a good deal. Save up to get the right ink.
Be prepared to be placed on a large wait list for the more popular artists.




2. Prepare properly on the day you get your tattoo.
Eat a full meal beforehand.
Many artists recommend drinking orange juice prior to getting inked.
Don’t drink alcohol beforehand.
Getting tattooed is a pretty intimate experience, don’t forget to shower.
3. Bring a good reference photo.
Bring in a high res photo if possible; at the very least a picture that is big and not blurry.
4. Don’t bring your entourage to the shop with you.
It’s fine to bring a friend to hold your hand, any more than one is rude and obnoxious.
Children are not permitted in most tattoo shops, leave them at home.
5. Trust your artist. 
The artist knows what they are doing, there is no need to be a “backseat driver.”




6. Check out the stencil design, body placement, and spelling before the tattoo begins.

If you see something, say something. You aren’t going to hurt anyone’s feelings if you tell them that something is spelled incorrectly.
7. Be prepared to go through some pain, tattoos hurt.
Don’t be afraid to tell your artist that you need to take a break if the pain is too much. Nobody wants a passed out client.
Ribs, feet, hands, head, and the spine all really hurt.




8. Stay still!
We know that it might be difficult to do so, but make every effort to remain as calm and still as possible while getting tattooed. If you are jittery the artist won’t be able to create straight lines.
9. Tip your artist.
Most artists don’t own their shops and have to pay a percentage of the tattoo price to the shop.
Tipping anywhere between 10-20% should be fine.
If you really love the work don’t be afraid of tipping extra.
10. Take care of your tattoo once you leave the shop.
Tattoo aftercare is a crucial step in assuring you have a good tattoo.
Tattoos will scab and they should heal in 2-3 weeks.
Avoid sun and going in bodies of water for the first 2 weeks.
Keep the tattoo moist and clean as it heals.
Once it’s healed don’t forget to use SPF 50 sunscreen when going outside, you don’t want your tattoo to fade.

For future reference!




My first tattoo I had gotten over my shoulder blade. My back is very bony so I had no clue what I was getting into. The worst part was when she’d have to ink over bone. It rattled that shoulder blade so fucking bad. Fortunately, the tat came out looking amazing and I don’t regret it for one minute.

  • I'm in my father's class at my high school. He said this today:

  • Him:

    As some of you may not know, I'm a feminist.

  • class:

    *laughs*

  • Him:

    No, really, I am.

  • Class:

    *laughs again*

  • Him:

    Why is that funny?

  • Asshole:

    Because you're a man, and you shouldn't think that way.

  • Him:

    Well why not?

  • Asshole:

    I dunno that's just the way that is.

  • Him:

    I'm a feminist because of my wife. She and I have the EXACT same job. Yet, I make more than her.

  • Class:

    *laughs*

  • Him:

    Why is that funny? Shouldn't women be paid equally as men?

  • Same Asshole:

    No, they're supposed to be in the kitchen.

  • Him:

    *slams fist on asshole's desk* Why?

  • Asshole:

    Because that's how it is.

  • Him:

    Why?

  • Asshole:

    That's their job.

  • Him:

    Why?

  • Asshole:

    *can't come up with another answer*

  • Him:

    I'm a feminist because my wife has the exact same job, gets less pay, and with that, I can barely support my three children. If she got paid as much as me, life would be a bit easier for all of us.

  • *note, my mother is a teacher like my father*

  • Him:

    Women gave birth to us, and now, here in the state of Michigan, they can't even have their own rights? It's 2014 people! Grow up or get out of my class.

  • Class:

    *silence*

  • Him:

    Now.. Louis XVI

In two days, my blog turns 2 years! I’ve met some of the most wonderful people here, and some really terrible people. I just want to say thank you to everyone who’s following me, to everyone who followed me due to a certain fandom and kept following me even though I changed my blog a little bit.

Bolded ones are friends, the rest are just super cool people (who I’d love to be friends with).

A special fuck you to oh-my-klaine for convincing me to watch Teen Wolf which caused my sudden blog change. Thanks for dealing with my Derek talk both irl and on tumblr, I love you.
