Be Picky About the Parlor

While a spontaneous trip to the tattoo parlor always sounds like a fun idea, you should take a bit of time and pick out a good one prior to hopping in the car. Cutting corners for the sake of a convenient location is not a great way to begin your life as a tattooed person. Remember, it's not just the quality of the art that matters -- there's a needle involved that will make contact with your skin, so you want to choose a parlor that's renowned for taking proper health precautions. Talk to other well-tattooed folks for their recommendations.
