Introduction: How to Make the Best of Your Tattoo Experience
Step 1: Brainstorm
Step 2: Research
Research local tattoo parlors and visit the ones that stand out to you. Do not be afraid to ask questions. Choosing the right tattoo artist can be the difference between seeing your vision come to life, and showing up on “America’s Worst Tattoos.” Look through their artwork, read any available reviews, and choose the environment that puts you the most at ease. One should feel comfortable and relaxed when one walks into a certain parlor. The above parlor is my personal favorite.

1. The tattoo should still be washed in the same manner discussed in the previous section. However, it no longer needs to be washed every 3 to 4 hours. It is acceptable to wash it in the morning and in the evening.
2. Lotion may be applied if the affected area feels dry from all the washing.
3. Continue to be gentle when putting on clothing or drying off after a shower or bath.
