PREPARING FOR YOUR TATTOO
Everyone handles pain & tattoos differently, but here is a list of what I recommend doing if this is your first tattoo (or if you haven't gotten tattooed very often)!
♡ Get a good night's rest and eat a hearty breakfast.
♡ Dress comfortably & make sure your clothing allows easy access to where you're placing your tattoo (such as wearing shorts for thigh tattoos).
♡ Feel free to bring water, juice, a small snack, etc. to your appointment.
♡ Please bring headphones or something to distract yourself! I like to chat with my clients before and after the tattoo, but while I'm working I'm super focused and won't be able to keep a conversation very well.
♡ Swing by a grocery/drug store before or after your tattoo to get aftercare.
Here's a short list of what you might need:
- Dial Gold Antibacterial Soap
- Lubriderm Lotion
- Clean paper towels
- Medical tape (optional)
- Saniderm / Tegaderm (optional)
♡ I'll tell you this the day of the appointment as well, but if at any point during the tattoo you start to feel woozy, uncomfortable, or just need a break, please communicate that with me! I want your experience to be as cozy & chill as possible, so if there's anything you need just let me know.
