#6 Showing Up Intoxicated
You probably aren’t fooling anyone when you come in drunk. If pain scares you so much that you need to be intoxicated to show up, a tattoo is not for you. Drunk people are annoying, but it’s also incredibly dangerous to tattoo someone under the influence. Pain meds and/or alcohol can thin your blood and make you bleed more. Ew. You’ll sign a consent form before you get your tat done, and most include a line that makes you swear you weren’t ripping tequila shots before you came in.
