When should I contact my tattoo artist about a tattoo?

If you're new to tattoos in general, new to Jackalope Tattoo, or it's just been a while sometimes initiating the process of getting a tattoo can be a little nerve-wracking.

Have no fear, we're here to clear up your questions!

The absolute best time to contact your tattoo artist about a tattoo is:

  1. When you have a general idea of the design / imagery.
  2. You have a specific tattoo artist in mind you'd like to design your tattoo.
  3. You're mentally (and financially) ready to set up an appointment for the tattoo itself.

That's it! 

Super simple right?

Even if you aren't coming to see us, assume your favorite artist at any shop would appreciate you knowing our general advice.
