When it comes to fashion and style, you cannot ignore tattoos! Love them or hate them you have to admit that tattoos are massively popular with many people covering a great deal of their skin area with ink, and making it central to their style and vibe. Tattoos, however, are not something that can be done in a DIY style (despite the rise of tattoo machines for sale on sites like Amazon). Indeed, home tattoos are nearly always a very bad idea both for your style and your health. That is why you need to find a high-quality tattoo parlour to get yours done.  The good news is you can determine whether you are on the right track with your choice by checking the five factors below. 

Green flag 1: The tattoo shop is hot on hygiene 

Because during the process of getting a tattoo, ink is layered underneath the surface of the skin, hygiene is crucial for your safety. Indeed, because you are breaking the skin when you get inked the process can provide the perfect conditions for infections which at worst can ruin a great tattoo, and at worst can be life-threatening! With that in mind, finding a shop that is hot on hygiene is crucial! 

When checking the hygiene practices of a tattoo shop, always make sure they use disposable needles that they change (no ‘disinfecting’) between clients. They wipe down your skin before tattooing. They were disposable gloves which they changed between clients, and their machines, chairs, beds and floors were also wiped down regularly. 

Green flag 2: The tattoo shop works with great artists

The next clue that will tell you have picked the right tattoo shop is the artists that work there. Not only should the artists tattooing in the parlour match the style you like, but they should also be respected and have plenty of examples of their work. 

A great place to check out a shop’s work is on their social media accounts like Instagram, where you can see images of their work, and also get a sense of what others think of it too. 

Green flag 3: The tattoo shop uses high-quality supplies and equipment 

Another green flag you’ll want to look out for when choosing a place to get your next tattoo is that they use the very best equipment and supplies. Indeed, there is a big difference between a tattoo that is done with a high-end machine and great quality supplies like 

Eternal tattoo ink, and ones done on a cheap machine with poor quality ink. For the best and most long-lasting result, you’ll always want to choose a shop that prioritises quality. 

Green flag 4: The tattoo shop is welcoming and friendly 

While there is a certain level of cool that most tattoo parlours and those who work there exude, there is no excuse for poor customer service. Indeed, tattooing like so many other businesses is a customer service industry and that means choosing a shop that offers a great customer experience from being welcoming as you make your first enquiry, to friendly service, and helpful advice on tattoo aftercare is a must.
