In basements all over the world, the soft hum of a tattoo gun races across the surface of someone’s skin. Wipe after wipe, an image begins to emerge. Some of us have them, some of us want them, and some of us don’t want anything to do with a tattoo, but the reality is that tattoo home businesses are popping up everywhere and they are making good money.
There are most definitely areas of your body where a tattoo will hurt more than others. The level of pain has to do with the amount of fat and muscle that exists over the bone. When choosing the location for your tattoo, you should not base it on the area that will hurt the least. Any tattoo you get is going to hurt, just some may hurt more or less than others. Pick the spot where you want your tattoo and remember that even though you will be in pain for some time, you will have your tattoo for the rest of your life which far outweighs the amount of time you will be in pain.
For those that have tried the treatment and complain they have seen no results…..well….this is quite common with the first session. The first treatment is done very gently….the reason is that you do not know how that particular person is going to react to the Rejuvi and more importantly how that person is going to heal. If results are not achieved the first time around but healing was quick, a more aggressive the second treatment should be done which generally gets very good results. It’s best to do this than have the tattoo equipment come off in one treatment and leave a horrible scar behind.
Preparing the tattoo area. Rubbing alcohol is the most common substance used to clean the area that will receive the tattoo. Once the area is cleaned, then the area will be shaved with a new disposable razor to remove any hair. The area has to be clean shaven because any presence of hair can cause problems. The immediate and surrounding area will be cleaned again, making sure there is no hair remaining and everything is set to proceed.
Finally, you’ll want to pick a tattoo shop or artist. The first thing to keep in mind here is that you need to shop around. Pick a tattoo shop that you think you’ll be comfortable spending some time in, and also pay attention to the working environment for the artists. After all, the more inspired your tattoo artist – the more unique your tattoo.
Most tattoo supplies equipment parlors will require payment for their services before they begin. This again will vary from shop to shop and each will vary in the types of payment that they accept. You should always request a receipt for your payment.
Ask yourself where you see yourself in 20 or 50 years. While body art might be a great things for you now, what happens later on when you try to move up the corporate ladder or you have children and grandchildren? Will a quote you like now still have the same meaning then? Will pop-culture references still be recognizable and be appropriate in the future? What about saggy skin or weight gain resulting in your tattoo becoming deformed? Will you need to explain why grandpa has a tattoo of a naked lady on his forearm or why grandma has something that somewhat resembles Tinkerbell on her back?
Pricing is based off of skill level. If you are looking for the cheapest tattoo you are looking for the least skilled artist. As a general rule the better artists work faster so their hourly rate increases. Tattoo studios are not flea markets, do not haggle your artist on prices. Tips are always appreciated but should never be expected. Most people tip similar to restaurants.
