There are alway questions that need to be answered when making an appointment for a tattoo, even more questions if it is your first time, it’s the unknown, don’t worry though we got you covered.
First thing to know is that in the state of Texas YOU MUST BE OVER THE AGE OF 18 to get a tattoo and YOU MUST HAVE A VALID GOVERNMENT PHOTO ID. There is no Such thing as parental consent.
When asking for a quote for a tattoo it is always better to make a consultation with your artist to get a more accurate price and for both you and the artist to have no surprises on the day.
To secure the appointment date and time is is common for the artist to ask for a non refundable deposit in case of a no show on your behalf.
If any custom design is to be done then a non refundable deposit WILL be required before any designing is to be done, this deposit will also act as your appointment booking deposit ( you will not have to pay 2 deposits ). The deposit will come off the price of the tattoo.
iYou are welcome to bring someone to keep you company, however please refrain from bringing a crowd of people, getting tattooed is a personal thing and too many friends although can make it more fun can also distract you from keeping still and also distract your artist.
You are also welcome to bring your own headphones if it makes you feel more comfortable and helps you focus on being still.
Now for some other things. Think about where the tattoo is going to go and more importantly what you are wearing, loose clothing will always help, especially if you are having a tattoo in a more personal area. Just keep in mind that we do need access to that area so think about what you’re going to be wearing.
Make sure you have something to eat before being tattooed and bring some sugar and something to drink, getting tattooed can lower your energy levels.
These are pretty much the basics, however we are aware that there are always questions that we haven’t answered and no question when related to your experience is too stupid, so don’t be afraid to ask it..
