Tattoo Shop in Columbus

So, you have decided that you want to get a tattoo in Columbus– what’s next?

First, you should pick the spot where you want the tattoo. This will have a major impact on what you can choose for your design. Next, you can pick the style/theme of your tattoo and finally come closer to the final design with a sketch. Then, you can finally go to a tattoo shop, sit down with an artist and get a good consultation on your choices. Unless you are a talented artist yourself, you will probably want to let the tattoo artist create the detailed tattoo design. Of course, they will do it after your idea, but a good tattoo artist will be able to come up with amazing ideas if you let them!

Now let’s go into details!

How to pick the right spot

Like mentioned before, the spot for the tattoo is an important first decision. There’s a few things you should keep in mind, though.

First, will your job require you to hide the tattoo? In many careers, tattoos are still not accepted (think banking, insurance).

Next you should think about what you want to spend – can you afford that huge, intricate tattoo over your entire back?

And of course, if you just want a small Chinese symbol, your back is probably the wrong spot. Think about the size of the tattoo you want!

Lastly, something you might want to consider: getting inked in some spots just hurt a lot more than other. So for your first tattoo, maybe you want to pick a spot that is less painful.

How to pick the perfect tattoo

Once you’ve decided on the right place to get a tattoo, you should decide on the style and theme. Browse for inspiration until you find something that catches your eye. On Miami Ink, there’s thousands of tattoo designs to browse through – you will surely find something there.

Or maybe you already have something in mind. Maybe it’s a certain style, like a tribal tattoo or something Nordic, or maybe it’s a specific meaning you want to have. Try making it completely clear what you want, write it down, explain it to someone. You’ll have to be very clear about it once you go to your artist.

Next, draw a simple sketch of what you want your tattoo to look like. If you are really bad at drawing, you can also just describe what you imagine with words and pictures as references. This will help the artist create something amazing for you!

But for that, you need to pick a tattoo shop or even a specific artist to go to!

How to pick a tattoo shop in Columbus

One factor will be the price: there are really good and famous tattoo shops, and there’s the “bad” ones. Obviously, the famous ones will be a lot more expensive. When you are looking for the right tattoo shop in Columbus, there’s a few factors to consider:

  • Popularity
  • Price
  • Experience
  • Treatment
  • The shop itself

A popular shop will probably be better, but also more expensive. Experienced artists will probably be able to create a more intricate tattoo, but for a higher price. So for a simple tattoo, a less experienced, but still professional, artist may suffice. But you never want to go to a shop where you are not treated well! If the shop doesn’t make you feel good, just go to another. There’s plenty of tattoo shops in Columbus, so be picky!

And finally, once you found the right shop, go get your tattoo done! I wish you the best of luck, may you enjoy it for years to come!
