Why getting a good tattoo the first time can save you time and money
Getting your tattoo done right the first time may be more important than you think! For most first time tattoo collectors this might not seem like a huge deal. When getting their first tattoo, a lot of people will price shop to find the best deal, this is the wrong approach. Shopping around for the best price will most likely leave you with a bad experience and a worse tattoo. When searching for a tattoo shop, start online and look for a shop that has good ratings and reviews. When you go into a shop look for one that is clean, and does not have a homeless man passed out in an armchair. The next thing to do is check out the artists portfolios. This way you can find the right artist for the tattoo style you’re looking for. A professional artist will charge an hourly rate, beware of someone that is charging a significantly lower price than other artists; most likely that is all that artist is worth and the only way to get business is to charge a lower rate than everyone else. Most people that have price shopped, to get a cheaper tattoo, have all resulted with the same outcome; a tattoo they are unhappy with! So they have three options at that point, either to redo the existing tattoo, cover it, or remove it. Now not only did you spend your time and money getting it done in the first place, but have to spend even more time and money getting it fixed. So you might as well just save yourself some money, and a whole lot of trouble and get your tattoo done right the first time. Remember it will be with you until the day you die, so you might as well get the best tattoo you can.
As the saying goes, "Good tattoos are not cheap, and cheap tattoos are not good".
