Tips For Your First Tattoo Appt Manchester CT
Here are some helpful tips for your first tattoo appt from Shamrock Tattoo near Manchester CT. Planning your first tattoo session is very exciting. However, if you’re a newbie, knowing where to start can be confusing. We’re here to highlight the basics and share some tips, so you’re more prepared.
Choosing Your Tattooist
First, you’re going to need to choose your tattooist. Once you’ve decided what you want tattooed, it’s time to choose an artist you want to work with. While we can point you in the right direction based on style, the decision is ultimately be yours. To help you decide, we have shared the artist portfolios of Jay Kelly, Pat B., and Greg Paradis both in the shop and online. You can view them here.
Setting Up a Consultation
After you’ve chosen your artist, it’s time to set up a consultation. You can do so by calling Shamrock tattoo, emailing us, or just stopping on by the shop. The consultation is a scheduled time for you to come in and talk your tattooist about exactly what you want to tattooed. Also, bring any references you might have to the consultation. You can talk about things like detail, placement, and pricing at this time.
Booking an Appointment
After the consultation, you’ll need to book the appointment for your tattoo. Please make sure to ask if a deposit is required. This usually depends on the size of the tattoo. Larger pieces require a longer time block to be reserved on our schedule and a deposit may be required to hold the spot.
Getting a Price Quote
As we mentioned a earlier, setting up a consultation is the best way to get a price estimate. There are many factors that go into pricing a tattoo. For example, the tattoo artist will consider size, detail, placement, as well as if you want color or black and grey. This is why we typically don’t give price quotes over the phone or through email. The tattooist needs to see what you want and where you want to put it to determine and accurate estimate.
Will it Hurt?
Yes, pain will always be a factor when getting tattooed. Some spots on the body are more sensitive than others. If this is your first tattoo, you really have nothing to compare it to. The most important thing is to relax! Although everyone tolerates pain different, here is a helpful article from healthline that describes a little about the sensation and pain levels for various parts of the body. We’re here to help you feel as comfortable as possible and answer any questions you have.
