The first tattoo as we know, is a very important step for anyone and obviously in many ways it can be unnerving.
Many "tattoos" are intimidated by the word "forever", so we thought to put together 7 useful tips that will certainly help you!
1. TRUST THE ARTIST (He knows what he does)
In most cases, those who enter a tattoo shop already have clear ideas about the subject to be tattooed and obviously also have good expectations about the final result. The best thing to do then is to explain in every detail your vision to the tattoo artist (do not forget anything), any detail will help the artist create the tattoo you have always wanted.
In any case, if the artist gives you some suggestions or proposes some stylistic changes, try to follow him and listen to him, he knows what he is doing and at the end of the day your tattoo will be his best advertisement.
2. GET A UNIQUE TATTOO
Every day we see hundreds of beautiful tattoos worn by other people, acquaintances or friends. It's too easy to open a magazine and say ... I WANT THIS. But why get some tattoo that has already been done? Our body is unique and so is every tattoo! Even if it is a subject that has already been tattooed hundreds of times, ask your tattoo artist for advice and you will see that it will help you make it unique.
3. ECONOMIC TATTOO = BAD TATTOO
One of the most important issues when it comes to tattooing is definitely the price.
Many people still today seek the tattoo artist "that costs less" and this does nothing but destroy the market but above all to destroy the skin of people who rely on fake professionals.
Guys, a nice tattoo costs. Think about it, would you be branded for life by the first that happens? Or would you rather find an established professional with a few years of experience?
A tattoo is an investment made on our body, so consider this factor of vital importance!
4. PAIN IS PART OF THE GAME
"But here it hurts? What's the most painful place? I'm afraid of needles I can not get tattooed! Blood makes sense to me "
Tattooing hurts, there is no excuse ... Anyone who has tried can confirm it, there is no excuse to hold! Advice? Clench your teeth and be strong, it is a pain that can be resisted!
Sure there are some points where our skin is more sensitive than others (in the next days we will post a "pain map") and obviously the more the tattoo will be bigger and the more annoying it will give. For this reason, if you are a bit frightening, do a good search and look for the ideal position to get a tattoo. (in the most extreme cases ask for an anesthetic cream to the tattoo artist!)
5. CARE TATTOO IS NOT AN OPTIONAL
Tattoo care is essential, if you want the result to always be nice and clean then listen to the advice of your tattoo artist, will show you how to treat and clean your new tattoo.
In any case the rules are always the same: Rinse the tattoo with warm water and neutral soap, let it breathe as much as possible and apply the cream that will recommend the tattoo artist. That's all.
6. BE AGITATED ... IS NORMAL!
When you take care of your first tattoo you will a little apprehensive, this is normal, so do not be afraid if in the first 2 or 3 "wash" with warm water you will see ink coming out of the tattoo ... No, you're falling apart! It's normal, do not worry and above all do not call your tattoo artist in the middle of the night!
Another thing that can happen is to see the small crusts formed on the tattoo, this is normal, the important thing is not to deliberately remove them and continue to put the cream.
7. CHOOSE THE TATTOO ARTIST MORE SUITABLE FOR YOUR STYLE!
Last advice, but probably the most important: Choose the most appropriate tattoo artist for your needs!
Outside is full of tattoo artists, now you will find a tattoo studio in every corner of your city ... DO NOT trust the first you meet, we will never tire of telling you. Do a good research and do not be afraid to move from your city, there are many very good artists around you, just look for them.
Focus on those artists who respond to your stylistic needs, look at their work and get advice!

Increasingly, for mere esterophilia, some people decide to tattoo Chinese and Japanese characters ... But are we really sure that they know the meaning? Let's find out together!
The "fashion" of the tattoo representing Chinese and / or Japanese ideograms has spread throughout the West for several years now,
especially at the beginning of the 2000s where most of the small / medium sized tattoos depicted gothic or Japanese / Chinese ideograms ...
Even today many people reserve part of their epidermis for this type of tattoo. But how many of them are able to relate with certainty the meaning of what they carry on their skin?
Browsing the web we found everything, the most serious cases are those related to writing "upside down". That is, the tattoo artist, not knowing in the least the ideograms or meanings of them, tattooed the unsuspecting customer by reversing the character of 180 °. Why? it's a mistery!
Very often we choose a Chinese character because it is considered beautiful to the eye, but what happens if the translation is not as pleasant?
We get testimonies from every part of the globe ... Some tattoo artists should take an accelerated course of Ideograms before tattooing a client:
We leave the ambiguous translations to our readers 😉
Tattoos inspired by Chinese or Japanese culture are magnificent and full of meaning, for this reason it is necessary to go to specialized tattoo artists!
It happens very often when you have so many tattoos that you can tell how brave you are or how unconscious you are. We find people trying to make us change our mind about filling ourselves with tattoos, telling us that it's easy now that we're young, but we have not come to terms with the passage of time.
The truth is that we know perfectly what eternity means, because we have chosen to bring the events of life on our skin every day.
Moreover, it is not so true that tattoos will not remain beautiful when we are old. Why? Let's find out right away ...
Although even in the best-kept tattoos the color tends genuinely to lose intensity, the most surprising thing is that the tattooed elderly who are beginning to appear on the world scene still show perfect designs that have gradually evolved and adapted to the changes in their skin . How is this adaptation possible?
The needles with which the tattoos are made allow the color to enter the various layers of the epidermis without reaching the dermis.
Tattoos when we are old as the skin reacts to the tattoo here there are the macrophage bacteria, which are activated by the immune system because of the wounds caused by the realization of the tattoo itself. These bacteria "eat" the ink trying to eliminate it, but they can not do it completely. Indeed, part of the ink that they try to ingest is "held back" and this is what makes the tattoo something permanent.
For the same reason, over time, the tattoos are perfectly integrated with the bacteria of the "aged" skin and manage to stay alive and alive!
This leads to perfect tattoos on unsuspectingly attractive bodies just because they are tattooed.
