Getting a tattoo requires a massive amount of thought and preparation. Tattoos are forever, so you have to be certain that, whatever you get, you won't go on to regret it. We've tried to map out the thought process we stress for our customers, especially those who have never been inked before.
First and foremost, you've got to find a studio or artist that you trust. Every artist is different, and each has a different way of realizing your vision for your tattoo. Too many people get overexcited about their ink and run to the first tattoo shop they can find, hoping for the best. Sometimes, this works out. Sometimes it doesn't. Regardless, it's always a better idea to do a bit of research. Your custom tattoos will be with you for a long, long time, so there's no rush to get them inked today.
When you walk into Hardwire Tattoo, or any other reputable tattoo shop, you should immediately see training and licensing certificates on display. If the shop smells at all, it should remind you of the sterile, clean smell of a hospital. The shop should be clean and well-kept- this indicates pride and professionalism. More important, you need to look around for the autoclave. If there's no autoclave, that's a red flag, and you should find another tattoo shop. Know your state regulations and make sure that they're being followed. Ask to inspect the equipment for sterility. If your artist hesitates, then that's a red flag. It's your body and they're your custom tattoos. You have every right to make sure the tattoo you're about the get will be safely and cleanly inked.
When you get your custom tattoos, make sure you get them safely. Also be sure to check out the artist's personal style and flair before you commit. At Hardwire, we try to employ artists who work across a variety of styles and methods so that we can offer you the custom tattoos that you've envisioned, exactly how you've envisioned them.
We're also a safe and reputable location for body piercing. You should employ the same amount of thought, caution and preparation when looking for a piercing shop that you would when looking for a tattoo shop. Piercings may not be permanent, but they are tricky to heal and can go wrong very easily if the person performing them isn't a trained professional. At Hardwire, we know we're the best because we only employ the best. No matter if you want a new body piercing or custom tattoos, we can help. Stop in today and see how you fit in with us!
