Your first tattoo?

In this section, we will guide you through everything you need to know to make your entry into the world of tattooing unforgettable, from the choice of the design to the aftercare. Let’s start this exciting journey together.

What should I consider?

Size

The size of your tattoo should be proportional to your body. A tattoo that is too large may be too conspicuous, while a tattoo that is too small may be difficult to see.

Location

You should choose a location where the tattoo is not too visible, such as the back or shoulders. You should also keep in mind that some tattoos may be more painful than others, depending on the location.

Meaning

The meaning of your tattoo is very personal. You should choose a design that has a special meaning for you.

Process

Consultation

During the consultation, the artist will ask you some questions about your tattoo, such as its size, location and meaning. He will also show you some sketches of potential designs.

Design

Once you have chosen a design, the artist will draw it on your skin with a marker. This will help you see what the tattoo will look like once it is finished.

Healing

After you get your tattoo, you must take proper care of it so that it heals properly. This includes cleaning it with soap and water, and applying a moisturizer.

Tattoo

Tattooing is performed using a needle that injects ink into the skin. The process can be painful, but the level of pain varies from person to person.

Do you have any doubts?

tattooing can generate a sensation of pain; however, the perception of pain varies considerably among individuals. Some characterize it as a burning or a slight scratch, while others associate it with the discomfort of a sunburn. Despite this, it is important to note that most consider it tolerable, and there are those who even find the process a moment of meditation.

 The mystery behind the pin of tattooing

We are committed to providing our clients with unique, high quality tattoos that fit their preferences and needs.

The time it takes for a tattoo to fully heal can vary from person to person and depends on several factors. In general, the following can be expected:

Initial healing (1-2 weeks): During this period, it is essential to keep the tattoo clean and moisturized with a cream recommended by your tattoo artist. Avoid getting it too wet and protect it from direct sunlight.

Peeling and itching (2-4 weeks): After the initial healing, it is common for the tattoo skin to peel and itch. Avoid scratching as this can damage the tattoo and you could injure yourself.

Color Stabilization (up to 6 weeks): The color of the tattoo may continue to settle and improve during this period.

Complete healing (2-3 months): Tattoos will be completely healed after 2-3 months. Patience is key.

  1. Choosing the design: Think carefully about the design you want. It may be helpful to consult with a tattoo artist to get ideas and make sure the design is meaningful to you.

  2. Location of the tattoo: Decide where you want the tattoo to be placed on your body. Consider factors such as visibility, size and comfort.

  3. Research the tattoo artist: Research and choose a tattoo artist with experience and a good reputation. You can check their portfolio and read reviews from previous clients.

  4. Hygiene and safety: Make sure the tattoo studio meets all hygiene and sterilization standards. They should use disposable needles and equipment to avoid infections.

  5. Allergies and medical conditions: Communicate any allergies or medical conditions to your tattooist before you begin. This is especially important if you have ink allergies or clotting problems.

  6. Pain and tolerance: Be prepared to feel some pain during the process. Pain tolerance varies, so be aware of your own sensitivity.

  7. Aftercare: Understand the aftercare instructions your tattoo artist will provide. This includes keeping the area clean, avoiding sun exposure and following the healing care recommendations.

  8. Long-term commitment: Tattoos are permanent, so be sure that the design you choose is something you will be comfortable with for a lifetime.

  9. Cost: Consider the cost of the tattoo, which can vary depending on the size and complexity of the design. Don’t skimp on quality, as it is important to invest in a well-done tattoo.

     

  10. Realistic expectations: Don’t expect the tattoo to look perfect right away. It can take time for the ink to set and the tattoo to fully heal.

Remember that a tattoo is a personal and permanent decision, so take the time to think about your preferences and follow the advice of a professional tattoo artist.

The process of getting a tattoo involves several steps:
  1. Consultation: First, schedule a consultation with a tattoo artist of your choice. During this appointment, you will discuss your design, location and any questions you may have.
  2. Design: The tattoo artist will create or adapt the design according to your preferences. Make sure you are satisfied with the design before proceeding.
  3. Tattoo Appointment: Schedule an appointment for the tattoo session. Arrive well rested, well fed and without having consumed alcohol or substances that may affect blood clotting.
  4. Preparation: The tattooist will clean and disinfect the skin area to be tattooed. Then, he/she will place the design on the skin to make sure you are satisfied with the placement.
  5. Tattooing: The tattoo artist will use a tattoo machine to inject ink into the skin through sterilized needles. This can take several hours, depending on the size and complexity of the design.
  6. Aftercare: Once the tattoo is completed, the tattoo artist will provide you with aftercare instructions. This includes keeping the tattoo clean, applying an appropriate cream, and avoiding sun and water exposure during healing.
  7. Healing: It will take a few weeks for the skin to heal completely. During this time, it is normal to experience flaking, itching and changes in the appearance of the tattoo.
  8. Follow-up: It may be necessary to schedule a follow-up appointment with the tattoo artist to touch up or touch up the design, if necessary.

Remember to follow aftercare instructions to ensure that the tattoo heals properly and maintains its quality. Patience is key, as tattoos can take months to fully settle into the skin.
