Tattooing is one of the most loved forms of body modification. Being a lifelong art marked on the body, you tattoo says a lot about you. Hence, it has to be perfectly created. It is here when you need to understand that it is not merely about getting inked. Or just choosing a classy and unique design will not serve your purpose. There is one more significant person who will help you achieving the design, the quality, you are expecting. Yes, when deciding to get tattooed, it is imperative to acquire about the artist in detail.
Why finding a right tattoo artist is so important?
Similar to any product available in the market, tattoos can also be beautiful, good, bad and ugly. It is the creativity and experience of your artist which defines your tattoos. These days tattoo artists have to undergo apprenticeship in order to learn the right method to ink. In fact, there are several certificated and licenses offered by reputed tattoo art schools, ensuring that the person is capable of performing this art in a sound manner.
So one thing is pretty clear- not every tattoo artist will serve you with a perfect artwork. There are some who will blow your mind with what they offer. On the other hand there are those who can lead you towards tattoo regret. Hence, if you are considering a tattoo and want it to be flawless, the first step is finding out a good tattoo artist.
Not sure where to start? Here are some points which have to be considered to help you find the right artist and tattoo parlor.
1. Ask For Word of Mouth:
There is no harm in asking the other’s advice, no matter they know you or not. Initially, you can speak to your friends and family members who have got inked earlier. While getting direct advice from people help you know about the artist better, they might help you learn a little more about this body modification. If you are lucky enough to find someone who had a good experience with a particular artist, you can contact them and get detailed information. But even if you don’t find someone great in particular, it’s still worth asking. May be you get to know their negative experiences, but at least you know which artists to avoid.
2. Look For Online Reviews:
Next, if you don’t find someone in the close connection, you can trust internet for this purpose. Start looking up for some artists online and you will get a good insight into the past experiences of the popular tattooists around you. When you find someone suitable, you can follow the artist on different social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. The best thing you can do is search for some comments and reviews, left by the people who have been already been inked by the artist. You can even ask their opinion. Also be very careful while relying on online reviews. Everything you read there might not be 100% true. There are some recommendations on some sites which are not always accurate. Be careful and choose the right one.
3. Hygiene is must:
Yes, you need to check on the hygiene standards of the artist and the studio they work in. Without any doubt, it is an extremely important consideration as poor hygiene can lead to undesirable results. Reason being, getting tattooed in poor hygienic conditions can result in problems like infections, blood poisoning, and Hepatitis A. For this, it is really not worth compromising on hygiene at all. To ensure your health and safety, the studio should be clean. While the surfaces should be regularly wiped down after each client, the plastic on chairs or beds have to be different for each client too. It is more than essential for the artist to wear glove while he is working. Check for the artist’s bench, ink box, and seats nicely. If these are clean and organized, you can consider them for getting tattooed. Whatever stuff s being used, be it needles, inks, or pots, it has to be new for each client. So keep a close eye when they are working, the needles should be coming from a sterile package. In any case, you are offended with the hygiene practice of the artist or the studio, get up and leave. Do not sit there and let the things happen just because you have made an appointment. If a tattoo parlor fails to maintain optimal hygiene, it is not meant to you.
4. Check Work Portfolio:
Don’t forget to see the artist’s previous work. It will give a better idea for what to expect as the end result. These days it is quite easy. You can simply follow them on social media as most of the artists have their Facebook and Instagram accounts dedicated specifically to their recent work. While you are looking at images of their work, there are several things to look for. First and foremost, check for strong and solid lines. Are they smooth? Do they look as they have been made in a single stroke? Then check for the color and shading of their work. It has to be very smooth and consistent. Remember, a tattoo artist with better skills and experience will be able to demonstrate proper color gradients. You need to feel happy and excited to see their work. If you really feel inspired and charged by their work, chances are that you will be more comfortable and satisfied with their work. You can also make a personal visit to the parlor and ask them to show you some pictures of their previous work.
5. Inspect the studio:
You must consider the location of the studio. It is better if the artist you choose is available in the studio nearby or at least at a reasonable distance from your home. This becomes highly important if you are planning to get a larger tattoo. As for the big tattoos your artist might call you for multiple sessions to complete, look for someone near to your place.
6. Awards are additional:
Though it is not necessary, but if you get to check some there is no harm. Nowadays artists grab up multiple awards across the USA. If you get to know someone who has won an award, it reflects their skill and popularity, both. Here it is worth knowing that award-winning and popular artists are more occupied. They are likely to be booked up and very busy. So you have to try to book them in advance and be prepared to wait.
7. Extra is never bad:
As the statement itself says, ‘extras’ are always great to have. These days’ artists are working quite hard to make it comfortable for their customers. For instance, a number of tattooists prefer using numbing cream before starting with the process. This is done in order to make tattooing painless. In such as case, they apply a cream like Dr. Numb which comes with numbing agent, and blocks the pain signals. So you can ask your artist, if they are offering something extra!
Lastly, finding an artist who meets all of the above criteria will not be easy. But investing some extra time and efforts will definitely help you choose the best.

Very interesting info!Perfect just what I was searching for!
It’s really a great and helpful piece of information. I am happy that you simply shared this useful info with us. Please keep us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.
Hey, how’s it going?
I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!
In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.
Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.
Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).
More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:
“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!
“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).
People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!
“EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX
We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.
A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.
It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?
Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.
Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection. He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!
Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).
The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
