The day of your appointment


Eat a balanced meal approximately 2 hours before your appointment. Low blood sugar can cause fainting and/or dizziness. Continue to drink water to stay hydrated.

Do not take painkillers. They will inhibit your body’s natural ability to release necessary chemicals and hormones. Besides, it will not hurt that bad.

Wear Something loose and make sure it is clothing that you won’t mid getting stained with ink (it is permanent). If you are getting your thigh tattooed, wear a skirt or shorts. If it your chest or stomach, wear a button up shirt. It is easier to tattoo the chosen area and you will not have to be semi-naked.

Take Deep Breaths And RELAX!
