Ornamental Tattoos


Amazing tattoo ideas for ladies!

Generally speaking, though, you can expect something like a $50 minimum service fee. This can look pricey at first, but it is actually quite reasonable considering most artists lose a significant chunk of revenue to the tattoo shop owner/landlord. They have to spend money on many other things, including equipment and ink, so tattoo artist profits are actually modest for the most part even with a minimum fee like this.

Your tattoo artist should supply you with some tips for care after your session. These actually vary from artist to artist. Some prefer to advise their clients to wash the tattooed area in a particular solution regularly for some days after tattooing, for example, whereas others prefer to leave it bandaged. It depends on your tattoo artist’s preferences.

Generally speaking, you should be treating the tattooed area as a lightly injured one. In other words, avoid hitting it or allowing other things to come in contact with it. When washing it, be very gentle and use antibacterial soaps to reduce the chance of infection. Finally, if you must use an ointment or salve of some sort, try to use one that is antibacterial as well. This will improve the rate of healing. Just remember to use only clean towels when drying it, or all the washing in the world might as well be for nothing.

Above all, keep in mind that you get what you pay for in the tattoo business. In other words, do not be tempted by the cheap (often novice) tattoo artist offering low-cost work. Do not hazard your first tattoo experience on the “free tattoo” specials some artists use to promote themselves. Just do not think you can ever get a great tattoo for free! Bad free tattoos are the stuff of Internet humor: you surely do not want your tattoo to end up in their ranks.
