A consultation with your chosen Bali tattoo studio to meet your tattoo artist is a first step that you must take before getting a tattoo in Bali. But before that, you’re going to need to do some things. If you’re coming in to get a consultation, make sure that you are prepared with everything that may help get your point across. Bring in pictures, visuals to help illustrate your ideas. Coming in empty-handed for a consultation is just a no-go.

No tattoo artists recommend a walk-in tattoo session 

Many Bali tattoo studios don’t take a walk-in session. This varies from one tattoo studio to another, but generally, their refusal would be if your design is complex and/or of a larger scale than what they can manage in one session. Here are some of the things to note:

When you’re considering to step into a tattoo studio without prior appointment: 

  • Some tattoo studios only accept a walk-in session when you choose a variety of designs they have in their tattoo templates. The only instance this would work is if you’re okay with having a “generic” design. 
  • A walk-in tattoo session is never recommended for most tattoo appointments. If you’re confident that your design is extremely simple and would take no more than one session, say, like a lyric, then go ahead and approach the chosen tattoo studio.
  • Don’t be surprised if the meet becomes a tattoo consultation and you’re told to go at another day for the actual tattoo appointment. Your Bali tattoo studio needs to prepare your design so that you’ll only have the best, and what it takes, is time

Looking at Bali tattoo studio portfolio is the first step to getting inked 

Before you hit up any artists or parlors in Bali with your inquiries, make sure that you’re familiar with their tattoo works. Having a good look at their portfolio is an important first step anyone who are looking to get a tattoo should do. You can usually find their works from social media 

Tattoo consultation gives you valuable insights 

Talking to the tattoo artists will give you insights you wouldn’t have thought you’d needed. Actually meeting and talking to the person in charge of tattooing you is an excellent opportunity beyond talking about your tattoo; it lets you get to know your artist on a professional level. Remember, you’re purchasing a service.

And this applies not for just people getting their very first tattoo. It always helps to have a consultation session before you actually make an appointment in studio tattoo Bali and hand over that tattoo deposit. 

Questions to ask yourself after your initial visit or consultation session: 

  • Do you feel comfortable talking to the artist? 
  • Do you feel that the artist understands what your vision is? 
  • How is the tattoo studio itself? Is it a place that you’ll feel comfortable to get inked at? 

Getting to know their work space

A tattoo workspace plays an important role in making clients feel comfortable during the tattooing process. Not only that tattooing is painful, but it could also take a long time! A consultation session usually takes place in the space you’re going to be tattooed in. So make sure that you ask yourse if you feel comfortable to be in their place or studio. Is the place clean, hygienic, and well-taken care of?
