A tattoo designer is often branded as someone who only likes weird or socially unacceptable things. Whether they are branded as loving snakes, skulls, or scantily clad women, they don’t always get the best reputation. Because many people think that someone who gets a tattoo is usually tough, they also assume that the designers and artists are tough as well.
The truth is that your tattoo designer is just like you everyone else, except they are also artists by trade. They are actually quite skilled in many areas and while they might be good at drawing dragons and daggers through hearts, they are also quite skilled when it comes to making rainbows, unicorns, and “I love mom” designs as well.
One of the best things to know is that tattoo artists have to go through a significant amount of training before they are allowed to practice their craft. That’s very good news for customers because you know that if you work with a tattoo designer then they are at least experienced enough to handle your entire process.
Many times a tattoo designer will spend months if not a couple of years preparing for all of the elements that are involved in the typical transaction. They are trained in safety related issues from diseases to blood issues. They also understand scheduling, customer service, and pricing. Plus, on top of the business side of things, they still need to learn the correct ways to draw up a tattoo and to your specifications and then have steady enough hands to actually imprint it upon your body. They can’t afford to make a mistake when it’s permanent, after all.
At the end of the day it is important to just remember the basics. Your tattoo designer is someone who just wants to provide you with an excellent service for a reasonable price. Make sure that you are specific in your needs so that they can make sure you are satisfied.
At the end of the day they do want to get paid for their work, but they also know that if you are satisfied then you might tell your friends or even come back yourself.
