Deciding to get a tattoo is incredibly exciting. You’re making a permanent mark on your body that expresses your individuality and passion.

Why Work with a Professional Tattoo Artist?

These days, it seems like everyone knows (or is themselves) a casual tattoo artist. You may be thinking, “I can buy a tattoo gun online cheap, so why bother going to a tattoo shop?”

There are several reasons why you should work with a professional tattoo artist when you want a tattoo, though. Here are a few of them:

  • Safety- While getting a tattoo is, in general, very safe, getting a tattoo from someone other than a professional greatly increases your risk of suffering health problems during or after your appointment. If your tattoo artist doesn’t know how to properly sanitize the equipment, you could contract a serious disease like hepatitis A or C.
  • Experience- Professional tattoo artists like the ones at Firme Copias generally have much more experience than the average casual tattoo artist. That experience is invaluable in making sure your tattoo turns out exactly the way you want it to.
  • Equipment- The tattoo guns and ink you can buy for low prices online are often much lower quality than the ones that professional tattoo artists use. You are always better off getting a tattoo from someone using extremely high-quality equipment.


Tattoo After Care

After you go through the whole process of deciding on a tattoo, picking a professional tattoo artist, and actually getting the tattoo, you’ll need to practice some tattoo aftercare.

Tattoo aftercare is the way to protect your new tattoo and ensure that it heals as completely and quickly as possible. While you’re still in the tattoo shop, your tattoo artist should apply some petroleum jelly to the tattoo. Then, they will cover it with a clean bandage and send you on your way.

When you get home, you should wait at least 24 hours before taking off the bandage. After taking off the bandage, wash the area around your tattoo with some water and antimicrobial soap. Pat (not rub) the area dry.

You should repeat this cleaning process twice a day for the next two weeks. Don’t forget to apply some antibacterial lotion to the area after it’s dry, too.

During that two-week period (and up to four weeks, if necessary), try to avoid taking very hot showers, spending lots of time in the sun, and swimming.

Be sure to use sunscreen whenever you’re going to be out in the sun. Some scabbing around the tattoo is normal, just try not to pick at it.

After 2-4 weeks, you should be healed and able to see your new tattoo in all its glory!
