      THIS IS A SITE FOR ARTISTS, NOT CLIENTS (Please read before posting)   04/18/2018

      I'm seeing a lot more questions from people who are looking to get tattoos, asking about ideas, healing instructions, etc. These are questions you should ask YOUR  LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST, not random people on the internet. This site is specifically for tattoo artists and those looking to get into the trade by way of an apprenticeship. Don't be shy! Google local artists and drop by a shop or two, check out their portfolio of work and talk about your ideas with a professional who can help you achieve the best tattoo experience. 

       Thanks for reading!

  1. I have a dentist appointment next week! 😂😳
  2. Thanks guys. Great to hear how rare it is to catch anything from tattoo parlours.
  3. hi guys. You’re going to think I’m crazy.I plucked up the courage to have my first tat. A really small triangle on my wrist. However, it’s ended up giving me total anxiety. I would suffer from a bit of anxiety/ depression which I am on medication and I upped the dose a couple of days ago but I’m stuck worrying about the safety of my tattoo!i chose a reputable (I think) parlour with a 5/5 star rating on facebook. The guy wore gloves. Covered the arm rest and light with celephane, used a disposable needle, and covered the wire of the gun (if that’s the right name for the device) with plastic.Yet I can’t get out of my head what if it wasn’t clean? What if I’ve caught something. I’m such a tattoo newbie and I think it could relieve my anxiety if a tattooist could reassure me that all that would protect against catching anything. I mean…the tattooist needs to protect himself too, so therefore everything would need to be super clean? How often is a tattoo parlour tested for cleanliness? Who regulates it?i know I am nuts. Health anxiety I guess!Please. Tell me I’m being stupid and I haven’t caught hepatitis.
