If you have a hangover, feeling rubbish, full of cold or generally just sick your body isn’t going to appreciate you getting a new tattoo, it just gives it that one extra thing to try to heal! So do your body a favour make sure you are nice and rested beforehand.
Even if you don’t feel like it, having something to eat before a tattoo is always a good idea and it’s always handy to have a sugary drink or snack on you to keep your sugar levels up!
Drinking a little bit to take the edge off might sound like a good idea, but don’t do it! Alcohol thins the blood, making you bleed and swell more during the tattoo process.
Is it going to hurt?
Yes it’s going to hurt a little. Trust us it’s worth it. And it doesn’t hurt all that bad!
