Depending who you are, the idea of getting your first tattoo can be a little intimidating, we thought it might be easier if we broke it up into steps for you:

  1. If you haven't already, spend some time thinking about your tattoo design. 

    Our artist Mo wrote up a great post about finding symbolism for your tattoos. We specialize in custom tattoos; feel free to draw your inspiration from imagery, memories, textiles, places, or just because you want a great piece of art to wear forever.
  2. Figure out which artist you'd like to work with on your design and contact them for a consultation.

    Consultations help you and your artist get on the same page about what you're looking for in your tattoo design and for you to decide if you're comfortable with moving forward and booking the actual tattoo appointment.
  3. Come get your tattoo!

    We've got another post here that talks about what to bring on the day of your tattoo appointment.
  4. Now that you've got an awesome new tattoo be sure to take care of it.

Four steps, that's it!
