When is the best time of the year to get a tattoo?

Yesterday was the first day of fall and there is already that cool, crisp chill in the air. While some may mourn the end of the summer and all of the fun outdoor activities that come along with the season, others welcome a break from the heat for awhile. I myself am one of the latter. Not only is a break from the heat nice, but it is by far the best time of the year to get a tattoo.

  The majority of people start thinking about that new piece as soon as the weather warms and they start pulling out the shorts and tank tops in the spring. It is by no means a bad time of the year to get tattooed as long as you follow the rules for healing your tattoo. This means avoiding direct sunlight expose, and avoiding submerging the new tattoo under water for two-three weeks. As simple as that may seem, doing these few simple steps is much easier in the cooler months when you don't have to worry about missing that trip to the lake, or the beach. Even worse deciding to go anyway and ruining your investment. We can always tell when someone comes in for a touchup and it is apparent that they went swimming with their fresh tattoo. Also, while healing your tattoo it will go through a dry, itchy and sometimes even a scabby phase, which is always easier to hide under long sleeves and pants during the fall and winter seasons.

   Summer and spring are much busier for walk in traffic at most tattoo shops. This can mean longer wait times and more difficulty getting an appointment as well. Personally,  I prefer doing more freehand work in the cooler months. It gives the artist a chance to take the time and sit down and design a piece directly on your skin and tattoo it, than when there is the crazy summer rush. In the warmer months, I tend to schedule larger pieces out farther in order to have the time to sit and design a tattoo when I am away from the shop. 

   If you are thinking about a new piercing, now is the best time of the year for that as well. Most piercings actually take longer to heal than tattoos. While saltwater is okay for your piercing, chlorinated water is not. Getting your piercing or tattoo now will ensure that by the time the warmer weather rolls around you can enjoy the season without worry.

If you have any questions or would like to setup a tattoo consultation for the upcoming cooler months, feel free to contact us here.
