Size





Choosing the right size tattoo, often we get asked to do tattoos that are way too small. Let me explain what I mean by way too small. If the lines are too close, there's a tendency for them to crush. So what I mean is if the lines run too close to each other like this, then if this one will spread a little, they will all spread in the skin, skin is soft and it gives and you're breaking into cells so the pigment will run in a little and they'll all spread. So if one spreads a little and the other spreads a little, what you have is the lines touching and you have lots of detail. So doing a face the size of a thumbnail is useless, what detail are you gonna get in there? Absolutely nothing. You'll get a little dot for an eye and you know another and then a little stripe from mouth. And that's the best you're gonna get, that's gonna hold. And in time even that's gonna look terrible. So a face the size of the palm of the hand is always a very good idea. And think about that. You know, often people like freak out about size. That's not something you should be worrying about when you're getting tattooed. What you need to be worrying about is what's it going to look like 10 years from now, 20 years from now. I know a lot of people say I don't care. Believe me, you'll care, you still want to look good when you're 60. And sure, we'll all be wrinkled and shit like that. But you don't want to look like a blue, wrinkled person. You want some nice shit on you. So take the time. Get the right thing. If it means you wait another week or two or a month or two months before you get it, it's worth it. It's your skin. So be responsible. Don't waste your time and your money.
