Choose an artist whose work you have seen and liked. Tattoos are permanent and if you end up with bad art work you will have to get it surgically removed. Hygiene is very important, as there is risk of contracting different diseases if the parlor uses infected needles or other equipment. So please choose a parlor which is known for its hygiene. Even if you have to spend a little extra for such a place, it's okay. Follow the aftercare instructions well, to preserve your tattoo for a long time.
