The Full Checklist Before Getting A Tattoo

Getting a tattoo is not a decision that should be taken lightly. Before you head to the tattoo studio near you, there are some important things to consider to ensure your tattoo experience goes smoothly and meaningfully.

Some Things to Consider Before Getting a Tattoo

1. A Permanent Decision: Tattoos are permanent, so it’s important to think well about your decision before getting a tattoo and ensure that you are absolutely sure about what you want.

2. Clear Tattoo Vision: When scheduling your tattoo appointment, it would be beneficial if you have a clear idea of the tattoo you want, including the design, placement, size and colour scheme. Sharing inspiration images with a local Indonesian tattoo artist can help. Combining elements you like from different images can lead to the design you crave. You will also need to agree on an agreed sketch with your tattoo artist before the session begins.

3. Medical Procedures: If you have a surgery or medical treatment scheduled in the near future, it may not be wise to proceed with getting a tattoo. It is always wise to consult your doctor if you are in doubt about the suitability of getting a tattoo.

4. Blood Donation: If you are a blood donor, it is important to note that after getting a tattoo, you will not be able to donate blood to others for at least six months.

5. Age Restrictions: At Ink Satire Tattoo Studio, the minimum age to receive a tattoo is 18 years old. This policy is strictly enforced, and even with guardian consent, there are no exceptions.

6. Identification Requirements: In order to receive a tattoo, you must provide valid identification. Failure to do so may result in Ink Satire Tattoo refusing to give you a tattoo.

7. Skin Preparation: Take good care of your skin by moisturising it in the intended area daily for a week before your tattoo appointment. Well-guarded and soft skin can have a significant impact on how the tattoo colour is received and settles in the session.

8. Appropriate Clothing: Choose appropriate clothing for your tattoo session. Comfortable, loose-fitting clothes made of breathable materials are best. Depending on the area to be tattooed, wear clothes that can be adjusted or rolled up easily, such as t-shirts for arm tattoos or wide/rubber pants for leg tattoos.

9. No Children in the Studio: Children are not allowed in the studio. If you have children, it is important to arrange a sitter during your tattoo appointment, as tattoo studios are not a safe environment for children.

Additional Care Steps Before Getting a Tattoo

10. Stay Sober: Do not consume alcohol or drugs before your tattoo appointment. You will be asked to sign a Health Declaration before your session, authorising that you are not under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the session. If you are visibly under the influence, Ink Satire Tattoo reserves the right to refuse to give you a tattoo.

11. Rest Well: Make sure you are well-rested before your tattoo appointment. Adequate sleep is important as stress, lack of sleep and fatigue can lower pain tolerance and hinder the tattoo healing process.

12. Respect the Tattoo Artist’s Decision: Always respect the decision of your tattoo artist. If they judge that you should not proceed with the tattoo or if there is a reason to stop the session in progress, it is important to comply. Ink Satire Tattoo always reserves the right to refuse to provide services to clients at their discretion.

13. Eat and Drink Well: Consume a balanced meal and drink well at least an hour before your tattoo session. Avoid nicotine, energy drinks, and espresso.

14. Snacks: Bring a snack to your session. Keeping blood sugar levels stable can help your body deal with the tattoo process more comfortably.

15. Obey the Tattoo Aftercare Rule: Proper tattoo aftercare can reduce your risk of scarring or infection.
