• Visit the parlor before you actually get the tattoo to make sure it looks clean and well established.
• Ask for safety guidelines.
• Try a temporary tattoo first in the location where you’d like your real tattoo. Make sure you like how your skin looks with a design on it in that location.
• If you are in a relationship, consult your significant other prior to taking the plunge. Some people feel very strongly about tattoos.
