If you’re thinking about starting a sleeve or something larger on the tattoo side, there are some easy steps to prepare your mind and body to make the process more comfortable and help your recovery time.
First, keep yourself hydrated the day before and before your tattoo. Staying hydrated in general is great for healthy bodily function, but especially important when getting a tattoo. It will make your skin more resilient, which allows you to endure longer tattoo sessions and help you heal faster following your tattoo session.
Second, make sure you get plenty of rest! Maybe get to bed early, you will want to be well rested before getting a piece of permanent art on your body.
Third, don’t forget to eat a healthy balanced meal before heading into your tattoo session. It is definitely not uncommon for people to lose their appetite due to nerves before a tattoo session and then pass out due to fatigue. Even though it seems as if you are just sitting during a session, you are actually exerting a lot of energy during the session. Being hungry while you are getting tattooed will make pain management more difficult and uncomfortable for everyone. Follow these steps to ensure you get the most out of your tattoo session!
