First Tattoo Tips 1-5: The Day of Your Appointment


You’ve found the right artist for you, had
the consultation, and booked the date to get your first tattoo. Excited? Nervous? Relax, Body Art & Soul Tattoos has some more tips for you to prepare for your first tattoo to ensure you have a great experience. 1) Adjust Your Schedule
Tattoo aftercare is important. So start thinking about it even before you’ve been tattooed! A fresh tattoo is an open wound and needs protection from infection – so no swimming, tanning sessions, or hot tub parties! 2) Feeling Ill Before? Reschedule
Your artist would rather you reschedule than have you sneezing and flinching mid-tattoo. If your immune system is stressed, your body is going to have a harder time healing your new tattoo. 3) Sleep Well and Don’t Get Drunk
Partying until 4am the night before your tattoo appointment is not going to help because alcohol thins your blood, which will make you bleed more. 4) Get the Right Mindset
Don’t worry about the pain, getting tattooed hurts less than you think. Focus on knowing that at the end of it you
will have a nice new tattoo! 5) Hit the Shower
Follow your usual routine and be a friend to your artist and make sure you’ve brushed your teeth, wear deodorant, but keep the perfume or after-shave to a minimum. When you’ve followed these tips on the day of your appointment, you’re on track for a memorable first tattoo experience! Be sure to check out the rest of our tips
in this series.
