Tattoos Do's and Tattoos Don'ts: At Your Appointment

FUSE TV - Tattoos Do's and Tattoos Don'ts: At Your Appointment

For many patrons, especially those getting their early tattoos, transacting at a tattoo shop is like drinking a heady cocktail of stigma-induced confusion and culture shock. It doesn't have to be that way. I know, I know, there's tons of crazy shit on the walls and the machines are buzzing super loud and you can smell iron in the air and the girl behind the counter looks hot and scary at the same time, but seriously... just relax. For the most part, this is like any other place of business where you purchase a service. Don't be a weirdo. Don't be a dick. You'll be fine. 

This is the second installment in my series on Tattoos Do's and Tattoos Don'ts; or, how not to piss off the guy who's going to mark your body permanently.
