Finding the best tattoo shop in your area.

When it comes to getting a tattoo, you spend months on evaluating and studying up on exactly the perfect piece to forever put on your skin.  You ask your friends, coworkers, and family what their opinion is and what they would do.  You know how important this is to you and you want it to look perfect.

So when it comes to picking out a tattoo shop and tattoo artist to create this masterpiece you want to give it the same attention.  Determining if a tattoo shop is right for you means you need to study up and set up appointments for evaluations with the shops you are looking at wanting to go to.  Here are some other helpful tips to look at when you are finding the best tattoo shop.

First, when you call to set up your appointment was the receptionist friendly, helpful, and  
knowledgeable about the working of the tattoo shop.  They should know each tattoo artists schedules and what styles of tattoos they are best at.  If the receptionist isn’t delivering the information to you in a helpful, knowledgeable and friendly manner this could speak of the kind of tattoo shop she or he is working for.

Second, when you have set up the initial consultation make sure you know exactly what you want.  Don’t be afraid to ask questions and make sure you enjoy being around your tattoo artist.  You are going to be spending a good length of time with them in one seating possibly.   Also, make sure the tattoo artist has a portfolio of their past work.  These photos need to be on actual skin and not just drawings.  Take a look at their portfolio and make sure their style of tattooing fits what you are looking for.   

Third, take a tour of the tattoo shop.  Ask the tattoo artist if they sterilize their equipment and how they store their supplies.  You want to make sure there isn’t any cross-contamination that may happen by recycling or reusing products.  Even ask to see their autoclave and if they keep it regularly maintained.  An autoclave is a high pressure chamber that is used to sterilize equipment or supplies that aren’t disposable.  Ask the tattoo artist how their supplies are stored and cleaned.  Check out the tattoo artist’s personal tattooing room.  Is it clean?  Is it organized?  Is it a location that you can feel comfortable in for a long length of time? 

You definitely don’t want to be going to anyone that doesn’t meet these guidelines.  You are going to be spending a good amount of money on a great quality tattoo and you don’t want to go to a basement or garage tattooist.  You deserve to have what you spend your hard-earned money on, so study up and do the work to find the best.  You find the best you will get the best!
