    What to Prepare for my tattoos (design, budget, cleaning,...) 

    Making some matching couple tattoos is not simply drawing some ideas, showing it to the local tattoo shop and pay: you will have to make sure to pick the right tattoo artist, prepare a certain budget, and think about how you will keep it in place and fully coloured by the time.

    1. Pick a Tattoo Design

    You have basically two solutions to work on your matching couple tattoo design and both of it are, fortunately, a very good one for your couple. First option, lucky you, you, or one of your friends/family, know how to draw beautiful pieces of art, and you can design your own tattoo !

    Tattoo Artist Designing

    Only make sure to work on the dimensions, your body is not always a flat area. Fortunately for you, the artist you will come by to make your tattoo can adapt your design to the area of your body your are willing to get inked.

    Second option, you can directly ask the artist to draw it for you. Most of the time, they will charge this service, and it can vary a lot depending on the artist and its notoriety: make sure to pick one that have a lot of great ideas, directly from its portfolio or social media.

    2. Prepare a Tattoo Budget

    The tattoo budget will depend mostly on three things, following what you need. The location of the tattoo, which can be more difficult to make such as around the arm or leg, two areas that are hard for the artist to keep straight and have it perfectly aligned.

    Budget for a Tattoo

    Second, size matters, a bigger tattoo, needs more ink, more time and more work ! The artist will have to rethink twice every elements of your design, use the best ink for your skin, and spend from 30 minutes to dozen of hours to ink it on your body. 

    Third, the colored tattoos are usually more expensive, as the colored ink is more expensive than the classic black one. Not to mention it will be a bit more painful to make, you will also have to think about which areas you want colored or not which can impact the price of it a lot.

    We’d like to talk about an extra element about the budget you should prepare for your matching couple tattoos: the artist and its location. Certain artists are very well known among the tattoo scene, and their cost for the prestation can be duplicated because of their notoriety.

    Tattoo Artist

    One solution to fix that: you will find some very nice designers in Asia, that are also very cheap due to the cost of living there. Maybe you can think about getting tattooed abroad, on holidays, to make it even more… magic ?

    3. Clean your Tattoo

    After your tattoos are done, make sure to prepare some plastic to roll around your tattoo, or stick on the body part you are inked on. Both of you, shouldn’t shower your matching couple tattoo the day after it was done, and keep this plastic wrap on it.

    The ink is still getting a bit rejected by the skin, you may damage your clothes, and it may lose a bit of its details if it is under water.

    Tattoo Preparation

    Second, prepare some lubricant to apply on your tattoos 2 to 5 times a day. You can do it when you wake up, after lunch, and before sleep: the more you do, the better!

    You will have to keep this routine for 1 to 3 month, and all of it, without exposing it too much to the sun.
