Get the most out of your tattoo with pre care

  • Before getting a tattoo, it's a good idea to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and blood thinners like aspirin for at least 24 hours beforehand. This can help reduce bleeding during the tattooing process. You should also avoid sun exposure and tanning for a week before getting a tattoo, as this can make your skin more sensitive and prone to irritation.

  • For piercings, it's important to keep the area clean and avoid touching the piercing site with dirty hands. You should also avoid using any products that contain alcohol, as this can irritate the piercing.

  • It's also a good idea to wear loose, comfortable clothing to your tattoo or piercing appointment to make it easier for the artist to work on the area.

  • Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing that might make it difficult for the artist to move around the area they will be tattooing.

  • If you are getting a tattoo on your upper arm, chest, or back, you might want to wear a tank top or loose t-shirt that can be easily pulled down or removed. For tattoos on your legs or lower body, you can wear shorts or loose pants that can be easily pulled up or removed. And for tattoos on your feet or ankles, you can wear flip flops or sandals that can be easily taken off.

  • It's also a good idea to bring a change of clothing with you to your tattoo appointment. This will allow you to change into something clean and comfortable after the tattoo is done, and will help prevent any clothing from rubbing against the tattoo and irritating the skin. Overall, the most important thing is to wear clothing that you find comfortable and that allows the tattoo artist to access the area they will be tattooing.

  • To avoid delays, it's a good idea to arrive at your tattoo or piercing appointment a few minutes early. This will give you time to fill out any necessary paperwork, discuss your tattoo or piercing with the artist, and get settled before the procedure begins.

  • It's also a good idea to make sure you have everything you need before you arrive at the appointment. This might include your identification, any reference material or images for your tattoo design, and any payment or deposit that is required. Having everything ready beforehand can help ensure that the appointment goes smoothly and that there are no delays.

  • If you are unsure of how long the tattoo or piercing will take, you can ask the artist for an estimate. This will give you a better idea of how long to plan for, and can help you arrive at the right time.
