plenty of food on the day. That way you reduce the chances of being unwell. It is important not to drink alcohol the day before your session, nor on the day. Alcohol has the capacity to thin the blood. Since it undeniably bleed when you get tattooed, it will certainly bleed more when you get tattooed if the blood is diluted with alcohol.
For some, to be tattooed is a great experience, while for others it is a real pain hell. It is therefore a good idea to be in balance you and your body. This is best done by avoiding the use of substances and to be well rested and have had plenty of food and liquid.
In order to achieve a very good result, it is important that the skin is well. This can be ensured by smearing with moisturizer day before.
Don’t use cream on the day, as this may reduce the ability to use stencil or marker pen on the skin.
Take a hot bath in the morning on the day and scrub the dead skin cells on the place to be tattooed.
Shave the place to be tattooed with a proper razor and use shaving cream.
