PREPARING FOR YOUR TATTOO SESSION?
Whether it’s your first tattoo session or your latest, chances are you could be doing more to prepare for a tattoo session. We’ve compiled these tips for how to prepare for a tattoo session to make it as comfortable as possible for everyone.
About one week prior to your session, specifically a long session, you want to start using lotion to moisturize the area being tattooed. Doing this will make the skin more receptive to pigment (ink).
Have a good meal 1-2 hours before your appointment. It's a good idea to bring a snack and a gatorade also. When you get tattooed, you lose a bit more blood than you expect, so having something in your stomach will help keep your blood sugar level up. In turn, the food and sugary snacks will keep you as comfortable as possible in the chair.
Make sure you get a solid nap in before getting tattooed, preferably 8 hours. Coming in feeling well rested will get you in a better mindset to handle a long, draining tattoo session.
The natural reaction to pain is to run from it - instead of thinking about how much it hurts, focus on your breathing and put the pain elsewhere. A simple shift in your thinking seems too easy, but it's a very effective way to change the mood of the tattoo from tension to acceptance. You just have to let go, and let it happen.
Be mentaly prepared
If you don't normally drink much water, drink a few glasses in the days leading up to your session. This has a similar effect to the lotion and (aside from being healthy for you in general) helps to keep the skin healthy, hydrated, and primed for tattooing.
No tanning, fake tanning, chemical peels, sunburns, major cuts or scrapes, in the area to be tattooed within a month prior to your session. we can’t work on freshly damaged skin...it won’t heal properly.
No extreme weight lifting in or near the area to be tattooed at least 2 days prior to your session to prevent unnecessary swelling & soreness.
