Getting your first tattoo?


Have you been wanting a tattoo for ever now?  Each year have you always been saying “I’m going to get a tattoo this year” but you still haven’t made the commitment?  I want to assure you that you’re not the only one!  It takes a lot of courage to walk through the front door of a tattoo studio for the first time.  

Will they help me with my design?  Will they understand what I want?  Will they answer all my silly questions?  Will they think I’m crazy?  Trust me…we’ve heard it all throughout the years!  Our accommodating staff are here to help you make this experience a “positive” one for you and we aim to create a welcoming atmosphere at Thrive Studios!  

Maybe you just received a Gift Card for Thrive Studios over the holidays and you’re ready to take the next step of booking a tattoo…here’s a few suggestions!

1. Gather your thoughts onto paper, preferably have some reference material to show the the tattoo artists of ideas that might be in your head.  If you’ve seen some ideas on the internet feel free to print them and bring them with you.  


2. Limit your ideas.  This means try to narrow down your thoughts so we don’t get confused about the theme you’re looking to get tattooed.  Sometimes we see people bring us 10 different tattoo ideas but lets focus on your “main” ideas for your first tattoo. 


3. Call Thrive Studios to book a consultation with your favourite artist.  We suggest looking through the portfolios of the tattoo artists on our website and getting an idea of who might be the right artist for you.  If for some reason we think another artist might be just as suitable for your design, we’ll be sure to let you know.  When you call Thrive we’ll discuss the waiting times to get booked in for a consultation with the artist of your choice.  At the time of your consult the tattoo artist will have a look at your ideas and give you a rough estimate of how much time and money will be required to get your tattoo.

 
4.  Please be patient.  You’ve waited this long for a tattoo appointment, whats a little longer?  Most of the time there will be a wait to get booked in with your favourite tattoo artist.  Some artists might be booked further in advance than others.  You might be waiting approximately 1-6 months to get the actual tattoo appointment depending on the length of time may be required to complete your tattoo request.  


That’s it!  Now you can tell all your friends that you’ve committed to your tattoo and you can start counting down the days until your tattoo appointment!  

Now what are your waiting for…check out the artists portfolios HERE and start getting excited!
