My first body piercing came at the hands of my then boyfriend who was working on his piercing apprenticeship, and needed people to pierce to work on getting his certification. So I agreed. Boy was I dumb. Brian and I agreed on a certain Saturday that I would accompany him to the piercing shop and he would pierce my nipple.
So… you’re THINKing about treating yourself to some adorning addition to your lovely , but plain “birthday suit”?
If you finally decide to get a tattoo you will go to a recommended tattoo artist. He will probably show you some designs to pick from. If you don’t like any of them you can ask him to do a custom one.
Be careful when choosing the design of your new tattoo because you will live with it all your life. Anyway, after getting a tattoo done you should know some aftercare tips that cannot be ignored.
If you go to a good tattoo shop than the tattooist will clean and apply antiseptic ointment to the tattoo while creating it. This is the healthiest way to make a tattoo. After the job is finished the artist will clean it and use another coat of ointment.
So… You want to get tattooed. Great! This can be a rewarding and life-enriching experience… IF done right. Knowing HOW to get tattooed is key to being happy with this decision.
I hope in the following paragraphs to help you learn the skills necessary to get a good tattoo, one you can live with. People get tattooed for a number of reasons… some good, some not so good.
