Do you want to represent something personal on time? Be a tattoo collector and fill your whole body? Do you think of something small or big? Maybe you just want a tattoo, a few or it’s the first of many. This is important to think about when making the first one, especially if it is small. If you plan to continue, that tattoo may "disturb" you when making another larger piece you want later for the same area.
There are many tattoo styles to begin with. You have linear, black and white realism, color, geometric, Japanese, traditional, neotradicinal, trash polka, watercolor... you will find great variety of tattoos among which we can choose ( I invite you to comment below if you would like us to write an entry on this topic). Do some research before choosing a professional.
Of course we recommend that you choose a study that meets the established standards. You can visit the site, see the facilities and get informed before making the decision. You can also research tattoo jobs through social media... but never get tattoos without seeing jobs before. Choose a professional who transmits you confidence, whose style you like and adapts to what you are looking for.
This part is the most complicated. Many times customers come to the studio with an image that they want to wear tattooed. Usually it’s because seeing it has conveyed something to them, or something in it they have liked aesthetically... but perhaps it is not the best to transfer to the skin. Sometimes they even arrive directly with a tattoo already worn by another person, and they would like to have the same one... but in the end for the tattooer is to copy the work of another who perhaps is not even his style or what he is best at. That is why we recommend not to close in on an image: it is better to go with an idea, a concept that the artist can carry out in the way that is best given, contributing all his tools and knowledge. If you participate actively and creatively the result will always be better.
Ideally, tattoos should be exposed to the sun for as short a time as possible. Moreover, although there is increasing social acceptance, there are certain sectors of the labour market that still place restrictions on this issue. If so, you should consider it.
Rest it is important that the tattoo adapts to the shape of the body. It is not advisable to place things in much detail, like faces for example, on parts of the body where they are small and detail is not appreciated.
The movement of the body must also be taken into account so that the tattoos do not deform too much in the area where they will be placed.
That’s up to you. There are people who prefer to make contact with something small and there are those who do not plan to do anything small and prefer to go straight to the big. The important thing is that you do something that you like and that you are sure of.
