#1 – What are the different types of tattooing?
If you look closer, you will see that not all tattoos are the same. According to Vic Market Tattoo, there are many types of tattooing, such as:
• Blackwork – those tattoos are the most famous within tattoo fanatic. Every beginner tattoo artist starts painting the skin with black colour. They are also the right choice if you are getting your first tattoo.
• Traditional Tattoos – Those were usually used by western people, but now, they’ve become a majestic piece of art. You can choose from a wide range of ‘ old school ‘ tattoos, depending on your preferences. They are usually used by those who are free-spirited and funny.
• Dotwork – every tattoo is made by dots, but from a Dotwork type of tattooing, you can see the dots. They are made in such an unusual way, that dots can lead you to another level of expressing your feelings.
• Geometric – people ( that are anti-tattooing their body ) are usually saying that geometric tattoos are made by those who don’t know what to get on their body exactly. But geometric tattoos are for the creative and mind-flying ones. It’s not so easy thinking about how to design the perfect geometric tattoo.
• Tribal – another underrated type of tattooing, based on those who are against painting their body and also they are old that they can express the historical part of some of the countries. Nowadays, those have become a piece of art of what Aztec’s design meant back in time.
• Realistic – the name says it all. Those tattoos are usually represented by faces ( from photographs mostly ) that are looking very realistic on the body. It takes a lot to work ( from a tattoo artist’s point of view ) to bring life to a picture.
• Fine Line – this is the type that requires the maximum level of attention for details. It’s also the right choice if you are a first-timer in getting a tattoo, mostly for hiding it from your parents. A new type of tattooing, considered to be an innovation for this kind of art.
• White Ink – it is used when combined with darker inks, and so can easily hide some secret specification in your piece of art.
• Watercolour – beyond the magical black ink, there are many colors used to design a tattoo. Those are made for adventurous souls, who aren’t afraid of showing who they are. It’s much pricier than getting a black ink tattoo, and it’s almost impossible to hide.
#2 – Is there a difference in tattoo ink?
Between a permanent tattoo ink and a temporary one, there’s a big difference according to their name. A permanent tattoo ink consists of pigments combined with a carrier, and it’s injected deep in the skin, while a temporary tattoo ink is only painted on the surface of your skin.
Otherwise, they contain kind of the same ingredients, such as:
• titanium dioxide
• iron oxides
• carbon black
#3 – What should I look for in a tattoo shop?
If you want to feel comfortable in a place where you will make a life-decision, lookup for four simple things:
• If the vibe of the tattoo shop resonates with you
• if everything is clean and sterilized, to remain healthy after getting your tattoo
• to resonate with the tattoo artist. It will be much easier to get what you want if you are on the same page with the artist.
• Reviews. Check out first if the tattoo shop is trustworthy so you won’t run out disappointed.
I can say the Vic Market Tattoos is the one that checks it all.
#4 – Is it good to get a tattoo from a freelancer?
Usually, not. Not even it’s less expensive than getting one in a real tattoo shop.
Especially when this is your first tattoo, or want to cover an older one.
You can get a tattoo from a freelancer after you find out his history if he worked in a well-known tattoo shop or/and people are recommending him.
#5 – What kinds of services should I expect from a tattoo shop?
Most of the tattoo shops have it all. And that means:
• Advice from the tattoo artist, before and after the tattoo ( how to take care of it, to remain intact for many years )
• The correct price overall, according to the mm’s price.
• Breaks, if there’s a bigger tattoo, you want to make, to calm the pain from it.
#6 – What other services and products can a tattoo shop sell?
As services, a tattoo shop as tattoo parlour Melbourne is selling the piercing part too. Mostly because they both work with body transformation.
As products, if the tattoo shop is called a brand, then it can sell:
