Tattoo questions to ask at a Tattoo consultation
Tattoo questions And these videos are based on your questions that I asked for on Instagram.
Tattoo questions And these videos are based on your questions that I asked for on Instagram. And the theme is: “stupid questions about body modifications”. And that might sound rude to a lot of you, but my point with these videos is that there are no stupid questions about body modifications. You are not obligated to know any of this stuff I thought I would answer some of them for you, I got a lot of “stupid questions” that I am very excited to answer!Because they are not stupid.
Tattoo questions 1 One reoccurring question I got a lot was how do you tackle walking into a new tattoo shop that you haven’t been to before or possibly going into a tattoo shop for the first time.
Tattoo questions 1 One reoccurring question I got a lot was how do you tackle walking into a new tattoo shop that you haven’t been to before or possibly going into a tattoo shop for the first time. And yes it can be intimidating to walk into a tattoo shop for the first time but what you have to remember is that they are there for you. Without costumers the tattoo artists would be absolutely nothing. so IF they are rude, judgmental or condescending to you when you talk to them about what you want to get done that’s not because their tattoo artists, that’s not because you’re being “stupid”. It’s because they are rude, condescending, judgmental people!so you shouldn’t be afraid of walking into a tattoo shop any more than a regular shop.
Tattoo questions 2 The second question is about white ink tattoos and if they turn weird colors when they heal.
Tattoo questions 2 The second question is about white ink tattoos and if they turn weird colors when they heal. when a tattoo heals, about 2 mm of skin is on top of the ink. So depending on kind of your skin tone and all kinds of things with your skin, it’s kind of difficult to know beforehand that is going to be on top of the white ink you can imagine white ink shows a lot more in white ink than let’s say black in it’s difficult to know what your white ink tattoo will look like after it heals. because it is difficult to know what those 2 mm of your skin tone will look like on top of white ink. How much do you bleed when you get a tattoo? well,
Tattoo questions 3 this questions is pretty easy to answer and the answer is that it depends on the person everybody bleeds a different amount but if you take for example pain killers before getting a tattoo,
Tattoo questions 3 this questions is pretty easy to answer and the answer is that it depends on the person everybody bleeds a different amount but if you take for example pain killers before getting a tattoo, or if you drink alcohol they day before getting tattooed Those kinds of things can thin out your blood, which makes the blood flow heavier. And the problem with that is that it makes the tattoo artists’ job a lot more difficult because with a lot of blood it is difficult to see what you are doing so it may affect the result. Someone asked “how the heck do you un-stretch your ears? If you put a smaller piece of jewelry in your ear. . . doesn’t it just fall out?”And yes, that is, in fact, the case. Different people say different things about how much ears shrink after a certain mm and they won’t shrink back to normal blah blah blah but to be honest, again here it depends on the person, it depends on your ears, your skin, everything like that you just kinda have to find out for yourself how much your ears will shrink when you do downsize, you just take your plugs out, let them shrink up as much as possible, I guess depending on what you want if you are just wanting to go down a few sizes, then when you feel like you have reached that size put in the smaller jewelry. But as someone mentioned you can’t just put in smaller jewelry and expect it to stay in the ear.
Tattoo questions 4 The next question is: “is there such a thing as waiting too long to get a tattoo?”
Tattoo questions 4 The next question is: “is there such a thing as waiting too long to get a tattoo?”This person is turning 20 in November and is wondering if they are too late. As long as you are breathing and as long as your heart is beating you’re NEVER too old to get your first tattoo. So if you start communicating with an artist about something you want tattooed, and you figure out that this person is not the right fit for the job. How do you approach that situation? And of course, this can happen. What you can do to avoid this from happening is doing a lot of research before starting the project with a certain artist. If you like their overall portfolio, the chances that you like what they will create for you is much higher. But then again it’s your body, you are not obligated to get something tattooed on you just because you have started a conversation with an artist. It’s gonna be on your body forever so you need to speak up if you are not happy with the result. Before it gets tattooed on you. . . . preferably.
Tattoo questions 5 The next question is “Do cover up tattoos hurt more than the original tattoo?”
Tattoo questions 5 The next question is “Do cover up tattoos hurt more than the original tattoo?”And the only reason it would hurt worse is if your skin has been damaged by the tattoo. If there is scar tissue it might make it more sensitive, but other than that if your skin is completely healthy and healed and fine, there’s no reason it should hurt more.
Tattoo questions 6 One question I got a lot is “how do I pay for a tattoo?”
Tattoo questions 6 One question I got a lot is “how do I pay for a tattoo?” it’s a bit tricky for me to answer because in Sweden we do not tip for tattoos. We don’t tip for hairdressers, we tip in the restaurants sometimes, but it is not a tipping country. The tip is included in the price you pay. So we do not tip so I cannot answer the tipping questions. Um, and as for paying for the tattoo, usually before I go there I know approximately what it will cost. by asking the artist, you cannot be afraid to ask the artist what it will cost. you need to know that. But most times that I don’t know I go there and ask is it ok if I go get the money from a cash machine after we are done? 10 times out of 10 I have gotten a “sure no problem” so I just finish the tattoo, the tattoo artist tells me how much it is, I go get some cash, come back, and pay. What do you do if your tattoo artists accidentally fuck up your tattoo? In this situation, you have more or less 3 options. 1) accept it and move on with your life. This goes for minor things, minor mistakes. details that are kind of flawed maybe a line somewhere is kind of wobbly. they are human, and they make mistakes, hopefully, tiny mistakes that are not going to ruin your tattoo. Option #2 is let the artist know that you are not happy with the result and see if they can fix it, ask if this can be fixed or if it is a big mistake that can just not be fixed. . . And #3 if you do not trust your artist to fix your tattoo, just go home, let it heal, and maybe look up another artist that may be able to do it for you. Sometimes you just have a bad experience, and maybe that artist cannot fix a fucked up tattoo. Those are more or less the three options you have to choose from or get it lasered, or get it covered up. but those are kind of obvious. So it happens sometimes that people can pass out from getting tattoos. I guess this is from the pain but I am not a doctor I am not going to go into why people pass out. but it is very important. If you KNOW that you a tendency of passing out, you need to let your artist know before you start that you might pass out. and if you feel like you are passing out, you have to feel comfortable telling them so that they can stop what they are doing and help you. so what if you have acne on the area that you want to get tattooed? can the artist still tattoo on that? And acne and all kinds of skin irritations are, basically, in healing. The skin is not “ideal” the skin is healing, there might be scabbing and that will affect your tattoo. I had a tiny little zit or maybe it was a scab already I’m not sure, right in the forehead of my tattoo just a tiny little scab, and my tattoo artist just went over it and to this day there’s just a white spot just where I had that because the ink did not go through, so I would say let your skin heal and clear up completely before getting a tattoo because it will affect it. “does getting layers hurt more?” for example going over a background. If your skin has healed, in between sessions, like cover-ups there’s no reason it should hurt more. But when you are getting tattooed in the same sitting yes each layer might hurt more because of the swelling that occurred from the previous layers.
Tattoo questions 7 I think that this is the most commonly asked question that I have ever gotten in my life. That is when it comes to my septum piercing.
Tattoo questions 7 I think that this is the most commonly asked question that I have ever gotten in my life. That is when it comes to my septum piercing. “how do you wipe your nose? how do you pick your nose? how do you do everything with your nose when you have a ring in it?”And something I think people forget, or just do not know, is that the piercing does not cover my nostrils. I don’t have two plugs shoved up my nostrils. The piercing just goes through the little wall between the nostrils, so wiping your nose blowing your nose, is exactly how it is for every other person. It’s just that when you wipe it, I mean this doesn’t hurt. I can move this around however much I want. I can like bump into it, I can wipe it, no problems I just wipe my nose and then I just make sure that I wipe the ring as well.
Tattoo questions 8 And the last question for today’s video is “is it okay to get a tattoo or piercing and immediately regret it?”
Tattoo questions 8 And the last question for today’s video is “is it okay to get a tattoo or piercing and immediately regret it?”And no one in the world can tell you that that is not okay. No one can tell you that you are not allowed to fell what you feel. Of course it’s a shame, but I am not going to tell you that it is wrong to regret your new tattoo.
