Finding the right artist for you is important, with so many different styles it’s hard to know where to begin. In this blog, we will give you the Top 5 tips for finding the perfect tattoo artist for you!
- Know What Tattoo You Want
Firstly, you should decide what tattoo you would like. This will allow you to more easily match the tattoo artist's style to your preferences. At this stage, you should also consider the location and your budget, as these are two things that artists’ will often ask about when you first approach them.
- Research Tattoo Artists
Doing research into tattoo artists can be overwhelming and that’s why it is important to understand the tattoo you’re getting, including the imagery, style, and aesthetics that you are looking for. Knowing this will help narrow down your choice of artists!
- Get in Touch with Them
Once you’ve found an artist you like, get in touch with them. Most artists will state how they prefer to be contacted on their Instagram page, usually via DM’s, emails, or website bookings.
- Ask Other People
Word of mouth is another great marketing tool. Ask your friends and family if they can recommend anyone, specifically somebody who does the style of tattoo that you’re wanting. Think about what’s important to you when finding an artist and see what others say about that person. If this is your first tattoo, you might want someone who’s going to make you feel at ease as you may be extra nervous.
- Don’t Rush
Finally take your time with the search. Enjoy the experience of finding the right tattoo artist and make sure that you’re completely happy with whoever you do choose.
The perfect tattoo artist is definitely worth the wait!
