How To Get the Tattoo You Want
Research Your Artist
Look up your artist on their social media pages and their website. Have they done tattoos previously in the style you’re looking for? You may be looking to go to your favorite artist again. Still, if they aren’t versed in the technique you’re wanting, it may be in your best interest to seek another artist out. Not all artists post everything on their pages, so feel free to reach out and ask them if they have any previous work in your preferred style they can show you.
Bring Reference Photos
The best way to communicate an idea for a visual piece of art is to show a photo of what you’re looking for. Two or three photos are a good amount to show your artist the style of art you’re looking for. If you have a couple of reference pictures that you like the style of, you can show your artist so they can have a better understanding of what you’re looking for.
Be Open to Creative Direction
If your artist presents you with a sketch that you don’t like, be upfront with them. This tattoo is something you will have on your body forever, so make sure if it’s not something you want, you let them know. Remember that multiple finicky edits are time-consuming, and your artist’s time is valuable. If you have changes to make, be sure to communicate them all at once. Provide as many helpful details to your artist as you can so they can perfectly match the design with your vision.
