First tattoo considerations

If you have been thinking about getting your first ever tattoo, then give us a call.

Chapel Tattoo is a professional tattoo studio in Melbourne. As one of the most respected studios in the city, we pride ourselves on giving good advice, especially to people who are considering their first tattoo.

But before you pop in to see is, consider the following:

Tattoos last forever

Yes, ok, we all know that, but understanding that is something completely different. If you’re 18 and want your first tattoo to be the latest meme, we’re going to advise against it. Think about what you’re doing, and truly ask yourself if you’ll be happy with this same tattoo a decade from now.

Research before you decide

If you’re unsure about what type of tattoo you want, research it. Talk to people, and read tattoo websites and forums. Your first tattoo is a big deal, so don’t get one just for the sake of getting one.

Once you’ve decided on a design, do your research on tattoo studios. Find somewhere that is clean, reputable, and has a broad spectrum of artists. Us basically!

Make sure you follow aftercare instructions

The tattooing process doesn’t stop once you leave the studio. Proper aftercare is a vital part of getting your first tattoo. Without it, you could run into some nasty problems. We offer a range of creams and advice for you in the weeks following your first tattoo.

We take our profession very seriously, least of all our Health & Safety responsibilities. Getting inked in our tattoo studio in Melbourne is a safe experience. We practice the highest level of hygiene and meticulously adhere to the Victoria State Health & Safety guidelines.

So if you’re interested in getting your first tattoo with us, give us a call or pop into the studio for a chat.
