Tattoos are an amazing way to show off your personality, so its very important to make sure you have the best possible tattoo artist inking you up. Before you even think about getting tattooed you need to decide on an artist. You don’t want to be stuck with a wanna be artist that has only been tattooing for a short amount of time and has no clue how to blend colors, shade or worse doesn’t know how to draw to begin with. Make sure you check the artist’s portfolio and look at their recent work. If the artist isn’t active on social media and doesn’t have a portfolio to show off you probably want to find someone else to tattoo you.  Remember that the tattoo is on you for the rest of your life, so having a professional tattoo artist is super important. Certain artist specialize in certain styles, some artist are amazing at Japanese Tattoos and others are not, some artist can do Traditional Tattoos and some can’t so just make sure your artist has a good idea of what you want before you make an appointment. You don’t want to waste your time or the artist’s time with something that the artist can’t tattoo. At Idle Hands Tattoo Company its always best to stop by the shop and talk to any one of our artist in person so you can get a good idea of who you want to tattoo you for your first piece of body art. Idle hands Tattoo Company is always happy to help answer any questions and make you feel comfortable for your first tattoo.
