Frequently asked questions

Question By Clients Getting Tattoo

Are Tattoos Safe?

Yes, as long as you go to a reputable artist that is following all recommended safety precautions.

Will getting a tattoo hurt?

  • YES! Receiving a tattoo is a painful process however the pain is bearable and addictive. It also depends on the painthreshold of the client. It requires the application of pigment under the first epidermal layer of the skin. The larger the tattoo the longer it will take to do, so small tattoos hurt less than large ones.

How much is it going to cost?

When it comes to tattoos, you get what you pay for. Yes, there are plenty of people tattooing out there that will ink you cheap, and you'll be crying to a real artist to have it covered up. Look for quality, and be willing to pay for it. NEVER haggle over the price of a tattoo. It is disrespectful to the artist. If you can't pay for quality, don't bother. This is not a bargain bin. It is a piece of art you will wear for life.

My friend just bought a tattoo kit and wants to practice on me. Should I let them?

NO! Your friend could be putting both of your lives in danger by foolishly trying to learn this at home. Tell them they need to get a proper apprenticeship, and they can start practicing on you when their mentor or teacher feels they are absolutely ready.

Can i become a tattoo artist by watching YouTube videos?

Well, one can never become a tattoo artist by watching youtube videos. Tattooing is a serious profession and while making a tattoo, one has to use needles and pigments and deposit that into the dermal layer of the skin. One slight wrong move is enough to cause trauma, bleeding, excessive pain, tearing of the skin, skin reactions, permanent skin damage, bloodborne diseases and a lot more. We need to understand that we are working on human skin and we cannot take any risk while operating the machine and while pushing the needle into the skin. At INKSCOOL we will make sure that you completely understand all the techniques and methods before you start making tattoos on anyone. Getting an indepth knowledge about the skin, its reaction to the needles, speed of machine, hand movement and placement, client's pain threshold, angle of operation and so many other factors are extremely important. You can watch videos on youtube only to get inspired and to get few ideas, but never become a tattoo artist by solely depending on it.

I currently have a job, can i still pursue a career in this field?

The answer is Yes! Absolutely! Even if you have a job you can still become a part time or a contractual tattoo artist.

It is not necessary for you to quit your job completely and start your tattooing business. You can pursue this even as a hobby and later turn it into a full fledged business.
