You've made your decision and you'll get that dream tattoo you've always dreamed of. Obviously, you want the experience to be good and you certainly do not want to catch a disease in the process and do not want to suffer unnecessary pain. There are a lot of tattoo parlors, so how are you going to choose the one that suits you best?
1 – One of the best ways to get there is to be denounced by someone who has had a positive experience in a living room. Although the referral process can come apart from time to time, it is usually a safe option, especially if you have seen the work of the artist. On this point, if a friend has been tattooed by a particular artist in a living room and you know that his work is good, it will be to your advantage to book the same artist.
2 – Having a good reputation in the local community is a sure way to make sure your choice is good. A good reputation can take years to acquire and most successful companies work hard to make sure their reputation is strong. Reputation is based on how a particular company manages every aspect of its operation. From store presentation to customer service, value-for-money and operating standards. The arrival in any of these areas will be done in the local community, so do your research and ask questions.
3 – Since you are a customer, you have the right to make sure that the company is licensed, so do not be afraid to ask to see the evidence. It would be unwise to subject you to an unauthorized backyard operation or that has poor operating standards. Risks to your health would be more expensive in the long run than the few dollars you saved by not talking to a professional.
4 – Visit the living room and look around. Is it clean and tidy? Discuss with the owner the cleaning and hygiene practices of the salon. A professional outfit would be happy to talk to you about these issues and if you're not convinced, do not go away – RUN – Run for your life!
5 – Last but not least, what do you feel about the artist? Is there a connection there and do you get positive vibrations that you are dealing with a professional? If you have vague feelings, chances are you will win.
Choosing a tattoo parlor is only half the pleasure of getting a tattoo, choosing the right design is the other half of the equation. They are just as important as each other, so do your homework on the design and the living room so that there is no regrets after the event.
