by Lisa Huffington tattoobloglove

Are you thinking about getting tattooed? Before running to the nearest tattoo shop, you must research about it and the tattoo artist. A tattoo is a permanent thing. So, you should take the time to make your decision. Here are some tips for you when you are choosing a tattoo shop.

The ‘why’, ‘what’, and ‘where’ of getting tattooed

When you think to be inked on your body, you must plan carefully. You should be sure about why you want to get a tattoo. This is the most important thing because you don’t have an option of backtracking after getting the tattoo. Then you must have clear idea about what type of tattoo to get and from where to get it. So, you have to make time for research.

How much do you know about your tattoo shop?

In an authentic licensed tattoo parlor, you have a better chance of getting the tattoo done by a well-trained artist who can provide you a safe, less painful experience with subjectively better result.

Getting the tattoo for the first time can make you nervous about the pain, a tattoo parlor with a homely environment gives you that relaxed vibe. Remember, it’s a permanent change to your body and you must enjoy the process.

The one most important factor: Hygiene

Before getting the tattoo, you should make some inquiries about the hygiene maintained in the tattoo parlor. Make sure that they use disposable accessories for one time use only. You must check that tables, chairs, machines, and other equipment are sterilized regularly.

Check that the needles come from sealed containers and that they are using new pigment trays every time. And when you go to the best tattoo shop, you get the best possible service.

Stencil or Freehand?

You must decide on what type of tattooing process you want to go for. In Stencil process, the artist will stamp the design on your skin before taking the needle. For Freehand, the artist will sketch the design directly on your skin first.

While the former is comparatively faster, the latter can match the shape of the body much better. Which will make it feel like a part of your body. The best tattoo shop in Ho Chi Minh and even in other places should be able to provide both options.

But what about the Artist?

Like all art, for tattooing, the most important factor is the artist. But contrary to most arts, a correction is not an option in this case. So, the skill and mastery of the tattoo artist makes a big difference. And you should always check about that.

Just like the tattoo studio, the artist’s view towards hygiene is also very important. Get to know your artist on social media and the kind of work they do. Then decide if you want to go for that artist.

A tattoo is an art where you are only the medium. So, getting all other factors right is important. A good tattoo shop can provide you with just that.
