Thinking about getting a tattoo ? Here’s what to check.

There are a few key things to note. Watch this video by the NHS :

  1. Your tattoo artist and shop should be licensed. The licence is issued by the local authority and must be displayed.
  2. Check the hygiene and that they are using sterilised equipment.
  3. The aftercare is really important. Poor healing can affect your tattoo, ruining the design or worse it can lead to an infection. The best product you can use to heal a new tattoo is After Inked – it is formulated specifically to moisturise new tattoos, which reduces scabbing.
  4. Finally, before you proceed, make sure you are happy with the design and your tattoo artist. A tattoo is permanent.
