    Yeah I wash with unscented soap as part of my routine, I’ve just heard you shouldn’t let water hit directly for a bit because it can sink too deep while it’s healing? Maybe I’m just thinking of soaking though with tubs

    Showering and washing it is okay, just don’t soak it — especially in public/natural water — for 3 weeks.

    So I want to start the process of getting my first tattoo, my fiance has a few and recommended her guy who I love his work based on Insta. But, I want like a drawing to see the design first (willing to pay for work for that), so I messaged him and he said he doesn't do that, but to come to the shop. How does that process normally go?

    typically you go in for a consultation, describe what you want & where you want it, and just kinda talk things over for 15 minutes or so. then you book an appointment to actually get the tattoo, and usually put a deposit down. you typically don't see the finished design until you go in to get the tattoo, which i know seems scary, but they'll modify it day-of based on your thoughts, they're not gonna force you to get something permanently on your body that you're not excited about so don't be afraid to speak up.

    Awesome, yeah I think I should just go in and talk to him then. I want his interpretation of my design, if that makes sense.

    the more you let them work their own style into a design you've created the happier they will be and the end result will be so much better because of it.

    Four hours?! I have probably 22 or so hours on mine, and there's still a few little gaps.
