Follow these 4 basic instructions before getting your skin inked

To get your skin inked is might be the idea that fascinates you but make sure that it isn't any impulsive decision.

Because you may experience mixed emotions before getting your first tattoo. So we suggest you to think hard before you take the plunge of getting a tattoo design on your body. And in case, you are still firm on your decision, then we have rounded up some important points for you to consider before getting inked.

Follow these four basic instructions to not regret later about getting a tattoo!

Choice of tattoo design

Tattoos are forever, it's a permanent piece of art on the skin. One should go in for a personalised, meaningful design and take suggestions from the tattoo artist as well. It should never be done in a hurry. Think over it and be convinced about the design because your mood and state of mind might be temporary, but the tattoo is permanent. We would definitely not recommend getting one's boyfriend's/girlfriend's name tattooed on themselves.

Choosing the artist

Just because a tattoo shop is in your neighbourhood, doesn't mean you have to get it done there itself. Make sure you've done enough research about the place before you get the tattoo done. It is important to check the reviews, authenticity and work of tattoo artist. Once you find a reputed artist, visit the studio for a consultation.

Inspecting the studio

The most important thing about getting a tattoo done is to get it done at a safe and hygienic shop to avoid catching any skin infection. Make sure that all the tools are sanitised and a fresh needle must be opened in front of the client. So you need to be alert and do your inspection of the studio with regards to cleanliness, while you are at the studio for consultation.
