You bet they are. It feels great to get a tattoo. Beautiful tattoos attract a lot of attention and can really reinforce your desire to get tattooed again. While you are getting tattooed, the body releases endorphins to helpyou deal with the discomfort. This is similar to the "high" feeling that you can get from vigorous exercise. For some people tattoos are adventurous. For some they are sexy. For others they can be very personal. Whatever your reasons, be prepared to want more than one.
Tattoos can be removed, but the processes that are available can be very costly and extremely painful. Tattoos should be considered permanent. However, Tattoo Johnny can now afford you the opportunity to "test drive" your tattoo and thereby avoid any mistakes.

Different states have different laws regarding the tattooing of minors. You can call a few local studios to find out the policy in your area. Some tattoo studios will let you bring a parent with you to get tattooed. Others will not. Either way, it might be a good idea to wait until you are old enough to authorize your tattoo yourself. A tattoo is a mark of adulthood and it feels good to go to the studio as an adult and get your tattoo. If you are not yet old enough to sign for your tattoo, use this time to figure out exactly what you want. You can focus on selecting the right design, the right artist and the right body part.When you are old enough to get tattooed, you can feel assured you'll be getting THE PERFECT TATTOO.
Yes. After you have picked out your stencil it's a good idea to visit your tattoo artist and discuss your tattoo. It's good to make an appointment so that you set aside a time when both you and your artist will be prepared to sit and concentrate on your tattoo.
An autoclave is the only acceptable means of equipment sterilization in the tattoo studio. It is a machine that uses a combination of heat, steam and pressure to kill pathogenic microorganisms. If the studio does not use an autoclave, do not get tattooed there. Studios should keep regular records of their autoclave use and testing. Ask to see them if you feel uncertain.
All equipment should be single service. This means that each needle and tube set is individually packaged, dated, sealed and autoclaved. The artist should open a fresh set of needles and tubes in front of you. Any ointments, pigments, needles, gloves, razors, plastic trays or containers used in applying your new tattoo are discarded after use. After the tattoo application, the artist will disinfect the work area with an EPA approved virucidal that will kill any surface bacteria or viruses.
After the stencil is applied to your skin, the tattooist uses a machine to do your tattoo. The tattoo machine uses fine groups of needles to deposit small amounts of ink into the upper layers of the skin. The needle groups are driven up and down very rapidly by small magnets on the tattoo machine. Using the machine, the tattooist will carefully render your stencil with black ink, until it has been permanently transferred to your skin. This is how your stencil provides the foundation of your tattoo, giving it much of it's detail and clarity. Next, the tattooist will usually use a different grouping of needles and a different machine to apply the shading and color. Your tattooist should keep the color version of your design close at hand in order to accurately match the colors and shading. Once your tattoo is finished, your tattooist will clean the area making sure to remove any excess ink. After you have looked at your new tattoo in the mirror, the tattooist will bandage it up to make sure it stays clean.
Any design that you bring your tattoo artist will need a stencil. The first thing that the tattoo artist will do, when you sit down for your tattoo, is apply a stencil directly to your skin. Like a paint by numbers, your artist will use the stencil to make sure your tattoo comes out right. If you do not have a stencil with your design the tattoo artist may try to quickly create one by hand which can lead to mistakes. Every design in the Tattoo Johnny data base includes the exact stencil needed for your tattoo. For more information about your stencil see THE PERFECT TATTOO.
