This is a blog for Tatuata shop in Helsinki, Finland. We make tattoos and we paint.
Before coming to get tattooed
Stop eating products containing omegas, evening primrose oil, all kinds of protein supplements and all other food supplements as soon as you start thinking about getting a new tattoo. It is very important not to consume these products a few weeks before and while getting a tattoo. This is the only way we can guarantee the quality of our work.
Your skin should be in a good condition. Do not shave, leave that to your tattooer. Do not use any lotions or creams either.
If possible, exfoliate your skin lightly in the shower the day before getting tattooed.
Eat and drink well before your appointment. Try to avoid coffee and other stimulants. Do not come hungover or drunk.
Come on time. Not 30 minutes earlier and definitely not 30 minutes after your appointment, without letting your tattooer know that you will arrive late.
In case of a long tattoo session, bring some snacks to keep your blood sugar steady.
