Things that Annoy Tattoo Artists

Bringing all your friends:

Tattoo days are always super exciting and obviously you want to share the excitement and happiness with all your friends. However,  bringing a bunch of people to the tattoo studio with you can be very annoying to the artist, and others also working in the studio.

A lot of studios are quite confined and don’t have a lot of spare seating and space to hang around in. So, having people hanging around can make the space feel even smaller and also be very distracting to the artist. That is the last thing you want for the person who is drawing something onto your skin forever.

If you want to share the experience with all your friends, use social media just like everyone else!

Expecting to walk in a get a tattoo there and then:

If you walk into a studio and they have space to tattoo you on the spot, I would probably suggest you walk straight back out.

Artists book weeks and often months in advance and it can be annoying to them if you expect to get a tattoo done the minute you walk through the door. Also, this probably means that you haven’t really thought your design through. Planning and designing can take awhile for you and the artist so please don’t get a tattoo on a whim.

Wearing clothing that gets in the way:

Be smart about your outfit when you’re getting inked. As much as we all care about our fashion, tattoo days need to be casual and comfy and appropriate.

Don’t wear skinny jeans if you want a shin tattoo. It will just cause problems for everyone. Either you’ll roll your pant leg up and probably cut off your blood circulation and it will be difficult for the artist to work around this, or you just have to sit without any trousers on! You decide!!

Asking to add to the design once the tattooing has begun:

Before you let the artist start tattooing you, you need to be a million percent sure that you are completely happy with your design. Once that stencil is on your skin and the inking has begun, it is no annoying for the artist if you ask to change or add something to the design.

Be open and honest with the artist, and don’t be afraid to ask to change something when they show you the initial design.  That is there job to make it perfect for you, don’t be complacent.

Not looking after your tattoos:

Tattoo aftercare is soooo important to all artists. Your body is essentially part of their portfolio and art gallery so they need awesome healed photos as well as fresh ones. You’ve gone through all the pain and discomfort, why wouldn’t you continue to look after your ink?

The initial healing process can be tedious, but always worth spending those extra few days taking extreme care with your new ink to see the amazing healed product.

Obviously once your tattoo is fully healed, using the Electric Ink Skincare Daily Moisturiser is the perfect way to easily keep your ink looking fresh every single day!
