About Me

my journey to a rejuvenated self

When you look in the mirror each day, do you like what you see? Do you tug at the skin on your face to pull the wrinkles away? If you don't like the aged appearance of your face, now is probably a good time to begin thinking about having one or two cosmetic procedures performed. I had struggled with my self-esteem for a few years before I broke down and had a few procedures done on my face. To learn more about my journey to a rejuvenated self, visit my website.

Why It's Important To Get A Tattoo From A Professional

If you're interested in getting a tattoo, you might hear about a friend or perhaps a friend of a friend who is an amateur tattoo artist. Often, such individuals will buy tattoo guns and supplies online and give people tattoos at a low cost. While it might be tempting to get your ink from this type of person, it's a far better idea to seek out a professional tattoo studio in your area. You can find numerous studios online and take the time to read about their artists and learn about their rates before you make an appointment. Here are some reasons why it's important to get your tattoo from a professional.

Higher Quality 

You can be certain that when you get your tattoo from a professional instead of an amateur, the finished product will be of significantly higher quality. Any tattoo artist at a reputable shop has to go through extensive training and an apprenticeship before they're able to begin tattooing clients. You'll also be able to see online galleries and even framed examples of an artist's work to assess their skills. An amateur tattooist who works out of their home doesn't have this training and experience and may give you a tattoo that you're not happy with.

Sanitary Conditions 

When you visit a professional tattoo studio, you'll be in an environment that must follow industry-mandated sanitary practices. For example, each piece of tattooing equipment needs to be sterilized or replaced between clients, which will ensure that everything is clean when you sit down to receive your ink. This certainly isn't the case when you visit an amateur tattooist, who may not be aware of the industry standards regarding cleanliness or may simply ignore them. Receiving a tattoo from such an individual could put you at risk of infection or even a disease.

More Comfort

A professional tattoo artist will also ensure that you're as comfortable as possible during your tattoo session. Not only will you sit or lie on furniture that is specifically designed for tattooing, but your artist will know how much pressure to exert while doing the work, as well as when you might need a break. An amateur working at home won't have this furniture or knowledge, which could result in the session causing you a lot more discomfort than you'd expect.
