What Factors Should You Consider When Choosing A Tattoo Parlour?

Aug 20, 2008
After you have decided to get a tattoo done and have chosen which tattoo design you want, you are then faced with the prospect of choosing which tattoo parlour you are going to use to give you your tattoo. This is a very big decision and is not one to taken lightly.

The wrong choice of tattoo parlour could leave you with a tattoo you're not entirely happy with and worse still you could be unlucky enough to catch a disease or infection from the procedure.

Let's start with this second point first of all. In order to ensure that your tattoo procedure goes to plan and you are not at risk of catching any diseases, you should always choose a tattoo parlour that is not only professional and fully licensed, but is also fully compliant with health and safety rules and has an up to date safety certificate.

They should also follow basic safety guidelines such as making sure all of their equipment is fully sterilized to avoid infections being passed on, and all work surfaces are as clean as possible. The tattoo artists should also wear gloves during the procedure. If you are in any doubt have a look around and ask about these issues before you actually have the tattoo done.

Apart from safety issues another very important factor is obviously the quality of the artwork. You need to choose a tattoo parlour, and a tattoo artist within that tattoo parlour, who will give you the professional looking tattoo you are looking for. Most tattoo artists are talented enough to recreate their own in-house tattoo designs but if you are looking for them to recreate a custom design you've created yourself, then you really do need a skilled tattoo artist.

As I've already pointed out, it's a big decision to make and if you're still undecided you can do what a lot of people do and ask for recommendations from friends and colleagues who have good looking tattoos. You can also ask for testimonials from different tattoo parlours and see examples of the tattoos they've created for previous clients. This will give you a good idea of just how good a particular tattoo artist is.

So in conclusion when choosing a tattoo parlour you should always consider various health and safety issues and at the same time look for tattoo parlours who employ talented tattoo artists who can recreate your dream tattoo design for you.
