Tattoo Shops in Greensboro

So, you have decided that you want to get a tattoo in Greensboro – 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 and the theme of your tattoo and finally get close to the final design with a sketch. Then, you can finally go to a tattoo shop, sit down with an artist and have a long talk about your ideas. Unless you are a talented artist yourself, you will probably want to let the tattoo artist create the exact tattoo design. Of course, they should do it after your imagination, 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, does your job need you to hide the tattoo? In many careers, tattoos are still not allowed on the workplace (think banking, insurance).

Next, think about how much you can spend – can you afford that huge, fancy tiger tattoo on your back?

And of course, if all you want is a small Chinese text, your back is probably not the right spot. Think about the size of the tattoo you want!

Lastly, something you might want to consider: some spots are a lot more painful than others. So for your first tattoo, maybe you want to pick a spot that hurts not too much.

How to pick the right tattoo

Once you’ve decided on the place to get a tattoo, you should decide on the style/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 specific theme, like a tribal tattoo or something with a tiger, or maybe it’s a specific meaning for you. Try to make it as clear as possible 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, just describe what you imagine with words and pictures as references. This will help the artist create what you imagine!

But for that, you need to pick a tattoo shop to go to!

How to pick your tattoo shop in Greensboro

The first factor will be the cost. There’s really good and famous tattoo shops, and there’s the normal ones. Obviously, the famous ones will be a lot more expensive. When you are choosing the right tattoo shop in Greensboro, there’s a few things to consider:

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

A popular shop will usually be better, but also pretty expensive. Seasoned artists will be able to create a more intricate tattoo, but also cost more. So for something simple, 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 feel right, just go to another. There’s plenty of tattoo shops in Greensboro, 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!
