Before doing anything, you should ensure the tattoo parlour is registered and licensed to provide tattooing services. Avoid backyard or home tattooists.
As the process involves injecting dye under your skin, you want to be sure you choose a studio that emphasises everyone’s health and safety.
Once you have a sense of the studio, you can start thinking about the specifics of your tattoo. You can’t pick the right tattoo artist and studio without knowing what it is that you want.
The best way to find this out is to look at their portfolios and any awards they may have won. Instagram and Facebook are also useful platforms for exploring an artist’s work.
Before committing to a tattoo studio, look for reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations. Check out online reviews and forums. Look for feedback on their social media pages.
