Chances are that whether it's a co-worker, a friend, a family member, or even a general acquaintance, you probably know someone who has a tattoo. As common as they are now, you might even have a harder time finding someone who doesn't have one. What's more, your curiosity has nearly gotten the best of you, and even though you're secretly wishing you could ask some questions about the tattoo experience, you've chickened out.
Bonus: Are Artists Available for Aftercare Questions? Your artist is the person you want to ask questions about when it comes to aftercare. Not only should a tattoo artist provide detailed information about how to take care of your tattoo, but they should be open to provide input afterwards because your tattoo is an extension of them. This is a big question to ask before getting inked.
Tribal tattoos have been practiced for thousands of years. Modern people still get them done for many reasons such as to belong to a modern 'tribe' even if they do it on a subconscious level. Getting tattooed was also seen as a rite of passage into adulthood.
