Know how the process is carried out?
Since you have already nailed down your tattoo design and have your desired artist picked out, you can then proceed to the other step then. Since there is an age limit of getting a tattoo done, a truly professional artist will require that you show him a valid identification and proof of age. If needed, you may also have to fill out other paperwork and give some other types of personal data as it is a part of the process that needs to be followed. This process of security might differ from shop to shop.
Now that you are ready for the process of getting a tattoo done you need to know that this can be done in an open area or a separate room. If you prefer a private room, you should check with the personnel about this in advance. Since you are paying for this service, your artist even needs to make you feel comfortable while drawing it.
The second step is to prepare the area for getting the tattoo designed and for that you need to rub alcohol on it as it is the most common substance used to clean the area that will receive the tattoo there. Once the area is cleaned, then the area will be shaved and the hair is thus removed with a new disposable razor. The area has to be clean shaven because the even minute presence of the hair can cause huge problems. The immediate and surrounding area is also cleaned once again so that it is confirmed that there is no hair remaining and everything is set to proceed.
The next step involves making a stencil of the tattoo design that you have selected. For this step, the artist will use a machine that is made up of thermal only to make a stencil of the tattoo design so that it can be done easily. The machine will then transfer your selected and finalized onto a special type of thermal type paper that can be used as a stencil once the entire process is completed. The artist will then make use of the stencil to draw the same design onto your skin slowly and gradually. To help you with this entire process, the artist makes use of soap or water if needed only just to moisten the skin. These substances allow the design drawn in a better way including more colors on your skin. Once the stencil is removed, you will notice a purple and blue impression of the future tattoo remaining on your skin. After this step is completed, the ink is put into small cups also known as “ink caps”. Once the ink caps are filled with ink, few of the needles and tubes are removed from the sterile pouches and then placed into tattoo machines. A clean container of distilled water is kept aside along with the other items on the work table. This is purely used for cleaning the needles and to change some of the colors if it is needed.
In the final step of this process, a small amount of ointment is placed over the transferred design. The ointment helps the transfer to stay longer and also prevent it from being accidentally rubbed off. The ointment helps the needle to slide along the skin in a smooth way so that the artist will begin their line work. With the sloppy feeling, you will feel a little different. Take slow and deep breaths so that you can relax. Do not hold your breath since it will toughen the process. The first minute or two will be difficult but after a few minutes, your nerve endings will get used to this process and then the pain will lessen up.
