The Design

This is probably the most important part before getting a tattoo. Getting the right tattoo design that you want and thinking it over and over again before getting it is the right way to go to prevent any tattoo regrets. Sadly, most people who get a tattoo end up regretting their tat years later. To prevent this, get a design that really means something to you.

The Pain

Some people say getting a tattoo freaking hurts, while other say it’s not. This pain thing is very subjective and it all depends on how do you deal with pain. Do you have high or low tolerance to pain? If you can deal with pain, then lucky you, getting a tattoo won’t be a problem. But if you’re not, just don’t think about it, don’t focus on the needle, watch TV or have a drink before or during the session.

The Artist

To be absolutely sure with the outcome of your tattoo design, it is wise to go to a professional tattoo artist, best if the artist is popular. Going to the right artist can make or break your tattoo design and you only got one shot at this because obviously a tattoo is permanent. So save up, these guys maybe expensive but they’re worth it.

Tattoo Care

Tattoo aftercare is also a critical part of tattoo process. You may be tough as steel when it comes to pain, you may have the design that you love, and got the tattoo done with the best artist you can find, but if you don’t take care of your tattoo properly, everything will go down the drain. Before going under the needle, study up on proper tattoo aftercare.
