So you want to get a tattoo, but don’t know where to begin! Don’t worry, this guide can help you find your ideal shop! The internet is a vast resource of information and you could spend hours and hours searching it, so here are some key tips to keep in mind!

You Get What You Pay For

You ever hear of the saying “good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good?” It’s a true statement! No matter the size of a tattoo, it shouldn’t look like a 5 year old did it! If you’re more concerned with the price of a tattoo instead of the quality, then you should probably save a little longer. It’s better to wait then to go to some friend’s cousin who does tattoos out of a kitchen!

Research Time!

The internet is HUGE and FULL of information! Use it! Go on Yelp, Facebook, Google, even Instagram and look for your local shops! You can even ask your tattooed friends and family who they went to! People love to talk about their tattoos, and would love to tell you about their experience with their artist!

What to Look For

When you’re looking for an ideal tattoo shop to call your tattoo home, remember that you want to go to a place that is on the up and up with health codes. You don’t want to walk in to a place and wonder what you might catch from just standing in the waiting area! Here are things you should look for – 

  • There's a sharps container
  • The artist uses single use, sterile needles
  • The shop is clean and well lit
  • The artist uses nitrile gloves
  • There's an autoclave or other sterilization equipment

Meet Your Artist

You’ve finally found your ideal shop, but now you need to meet your artist. While most artists can do pretty much any style, there’s always someone who specializes in a specific one. If your tattoo is realism, you don’t want to be going to the new school guy. Before booking your appointment, call up the shop and talk to the manager! Tell them what you’re looking for, and they should be able to recommend an artist. You should meet with them before so you can tell if this person is a good fit for you. If you hit it off, then book your artist, leave a deposit, and anxiously await your tattoo appointment!
