Anyone who’s tattooed or been tattooed knows the experience is painful. To what degree depends on both personal pain tolerance and of course tattoo placement.

 

So before you grab the machine and get to work on customer’s skin, how do you make them feel comfortable?

 

Ease Their Expectations

If your customer has no prior tattoos and requests a design on a more tender area, a reputable tattoo artist should always advise first on the pain level, to better inform their customer of the potential experience.

Submitted by Naomi V on Tue, 2014-05-06 23:21

When looking for your next tattoo design, it's easy to become anxious and impatient. Along with this demand for tattoo art to fill the growing need, the tattoo generator can be found online, and many versions of it. We understand tattoos are a passion of yours! But the right tattoo take times and patience. While online tattoo generators may be faster, is there really the love and sould that you'd want, included in that generated design? Most of the generators online take the text you want in your design and let you choose some premade clip art type of designs that you can mix together.

Tattoos have a long and rich history that spans among cultures and classes. There are stereotypes also associated with tattoo, but things are starting to change within the realm of tattoo culture. More people from different walks of life are adoopting tattoo as an acceptable form of personal adornment. Even moreso, people are starting to see tattoo for what it is - a true artform. While tattoo art is becoming less taboo and more largely appreciated, there still are some differences between tattoos and those we can deem as tattoo art.

A Poem for Your Mom

         (From You)

 

Roses are Red

 

Violets are Blue

 

Here’s My Tattoo

 

An Ode to You

 

It’s Not the First One I Got

 

But it’s the First One You’ve Seen

 

And I Hope You’ll Accept Them

 

Because They’re Part of Me

 

I Didn’t Ink My Hands, My Neck or My Face

 

I Knew You Would Call Those a Terrible Disgrace

 

Top Four Mom Tattoo Designs

Submitted by Jodie Michalak on Tue, 2014-05-06 01:32

Now I don’t know about you but if there is ever a time one of my two boys comes home with their first tattoo, it had better say Mom on it.

 

No matter your opinion of body art, I believe Mom tattoos are accepted by every parent.

 

So if you’re easing into the tattoo lifestyle and want a design that scores you a few points before busting out the skulls and daggers, a Mom tattoo is a safe bet.

That doesn’t mean you have to wear a heart with Mom’s name however, there are plenty of ways to honor thy mother.

How to Complain About Your Tattoo Artist Properly

Submitted by Jodie Michalak on Sun, 2014-05-04 11:05

Scrap That Work…What Happens When You Hate Your Tattoo?

 

It happens. You opt for a new tattoo and end up being unhappy with the finished piece.

 

It’s one thing to go home and complain about it and quite another to voice your opinion and not allow your artist to fix it. Then there are those happy (yet unhappy) customers, and they are really the best to work with.

 

Here’s how to complain properly…and why.

 

My Opinion Matters (I think…)
