DAY BEFORE TATTOO

Tattoo Preparations :

  • GET PLENTY OF REST THE NIGHT BEFORE. YES YOU ARE EXCITED, BUT REST WILL GET YOU THROUGH THE TATTOO SESSION.
  • DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL, HEAVILY, THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR TATTOO APPOINTMENT. JUST A LITTLE CAN THIN YOUR BLOOD THE NEXT DAY.

  • DRINK LOTS OF WATER.

  • BUY AQUAPHOR OINTMENT AND CLING WRAP FOR THE AFTERCARE PROCESS. IF YOU FEEL SICK OR ARE SICK, PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL AHEAD OF TIME TO RESCHEDULE YOUR TATTOO APPOINTMENT.

  • DO NOT COME IN TO GET TATTOOED WHEN YOU ARE SICK! ITS UNFAIR TO EXPOSE THE ARTIST, EMPLOYEES, AND OTHER CLIENTS TO YOUR SICKNESS; IT MAY VERY WELL HINDER YOUR TATTOO’S HEALING PROCESS. IF THE ARTIST NOTICES YOU ARE SICK, THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO NOT TATTOO YOU AT THAT MOMENT.

YOU MIGHT WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A RIDE HOME IF YOU THINK THERE’S A CHANCE YOU’LL NEED ONE.

  • PHONES ARE TO BE ON SILENT AND PUT AWAY. YOU WILL GET A CHANCE TO CHECK IT BUT PHONES CAN BE DISTRACTING TO ARTIST.
