InkInterest posted a topic in General Tattoo DiscussionHave some questions before getting first tattoo, any tips? I want to get a full sleeve black (grey) tattoo as my first, but really want to think this through. I wanted to ask a couple of things: 1) Where can I find "good tattoo" galleries with excellent work from top notch experts in the field? 2) Any tattoo books that you could recommend to order and browse through to get ideas for how I want my design to look? 3) Any general tips for getting the first tattoo? 4) Any red flags I should look out for or general recommendations when choosing the artist and saloon? Thank you!
