How Can I Avoid Shaking While Being Tattooed?

Recommended Posts

Hey So I have been getting my first tattoo worked on (it's going to be a full sleeve, I know a lot of people think that's a bad choice for a first tattoo but I went for it) and  I shake like a mf almost the entire time.  I try to just focus on my breathing, I get a good meal in beforehand, but almost the entire time I'll be shaking and it's very hard for me to avoid.  I try my best not to but it just happens.  I want to make this process as easy as possible for my artist so can you guys give me any tips on things I can do either during the tattooing or beforehand to prevent shaking?

Easier said than done; but you've just got to find a way to relax. If your getting shaky from the start, then it's just in your head.  Bring your phone and watch a movie, or just listen to something distracting. In the past I've found that "focusing on your breathing" when anxious just reminds that I'm trying to not be anxious....which then makes me anxious.
