A Brief History of Tattooing


How to choose an tattoo artist? here are a few suggestions you should consider.

Needless to say, finding the right tattoist to do your tattoo work is very important to a successful piece of body art. Remember, this is the only body you have and it can never be taken seriously enough when choosing an tattooist. Here are a few ways you should consider when selecting your tattooist:

1. Read Tattoo Books and Tattoo Magzines

There are many different tattoo publications in the book store or library, go buy or burrow a few and look through the materials. The best one will educate you, inspire you, and expose you to a wide variety of work from artists all over the world.

2. Talk to Your Friends,Relatives or Somebody on the Street That haveTattoo Style You Like

Paying attention to other people’s work. Ask the people who had tattoo done about: who did the work for them? how long ago did they have the tattoo done? Would they recommend the tatttoist to you? Why and why not?

Tattoo fans are usually very opinionated about artists, styles and trends, they will have a lot to say on these subjects, learn from somebody else’s success or failure.

3. Visit Local Tattoo Parlors

Stop and look around at your local tattoo shops, walk in and ask questions, ask to see examples to the artist’s work.. If a tattoo studio won’t let you look around or answer your questions, they are probably too busy to accommodate you at that moment. In this case, make an appointment to come back at an approperiate time.

4. Attend Tattoo Conventions, Tattoo Expos and Tattoo Shows

Attending one of the many annual body-art conventions, expos and shows will give you great opportunities to see many of the artists in your area, as well as artists from all over the world.

Go talk to the tattoo artist you think has the best talent for the style you choose, you can probably even get your tattoo done at the scene with a reasonable price.

5. Contact Your Favorite Tattooist via Emails or Phone Calls

Many artists travel extensively and spend time tattooing as “guest artists” in reputable tattoo studios around the world. If you are interested in getting work by an artist who lives far from you, call or write and ask whether she/he will be coming to your area sometime in the near future. You may save yourself a lot of time and travel expenses, and spend that money on getting the best quality tattoo.
