Some people feel discomfort and confusion when they decide to get a tattoo on their body. And it is right! Tattooing the body is a procedure that requires a certain effect on the body, and therefore, appropriate preparation.
What do you need to know before getting a tattoo?
Firstly, it is better to get a tattoo in a professional tattoo parlor. Secondly, before the procedure, it is necessary to take care of drawing up a contract, according to which the salon providing the corresponding service undertakes to use only disposable equipment and guarantees its client complete safety. Thirdly, some specialists work from home, so you can only trust such a master if there is confidence in his professionalism and reputation.
Preparation for tattooing
Preparing the place for stuffing. When a tattoo is stuffed, its pigments are implanted into the deep layers of the epidermis (the top layer of the skin). That is why the skin needs to be properly prepared. It should not be dirty, have any scratches or other temporary defects. In addition, from the surface of the skin at the place where the tattoo will be stuffed, it is necessary to remove the entire hairline, because applying a tattoo is associated with a certain risk of injury.
General preparation of the body. It is not recommended to get a tattoo when the client is sick, does not feel well, has fever, or experiences high or low blood pressure. It is extremely forbidden to get a tattoo while intoxicated and the next day after it! It is not recommended to consume coffee and other energy drinks on this day.
Women who want to get a tattoo for themselves need to remember that during menstruation, the processes responsible for the circulation and coagulation of their blood change. Therefore, it is not recommended to get tattoos during this period.
Two weeks before applying the tattoo, you need to give up the tanning bed and sunbathing. By the way, during the first month after applying the tattoo, you do not need to expose it to ultraviolet radiation. In addition, the day before getting the tattoo, you need to get a good night's sleep and, if possible, do not take any medications.
Moral preparation. Some experts advise their clients to come to their appointment (on the day of tattooing) in an excellent mood. This is understandable: some nervousness can prevent the master from performing his job professionally. You can cope with the nerves: the main thing is to remember that the pain during the procedure is minimal and practically not felt.
In any case, on the day of tattooing, you need to throw all the negativity aside and forget about your problems. Psychologists generally say that a good choice of a specialist and a sketch for a tattoo can turn the procedure for applying it to the body into an excellent therapeutic session.
