Tattoos are not a new thing but have existed since ancient times. Many tribal groups around the world have different and unique type of tattoo practices. Tattoos were made using the old methods of knife by making a cut or/mark on the body and inserting pigment. The new methods involve Tattooing Machines which has simplified the procedure.

Hey friends, Sorry, I was away from my blog for some time due to busy schedule and my involvement in different activities. Anyways, as an artist I come across this question many times in a day and every day my answer changes slightly however the outcome remains persistent and people understand. I reply, “It won’t pain; its bearable don’t worry; It will pass soon; Girls are getting big tattoos and you look stronger than them, be a Man” and many more to add. When I started getting Tattoos myself I never thought of pain instead I always wanted a unique place which makes my tattoo look as part of the skin. Today, when I've heard this question about thousands of times I realized to dig it deeper. Let see what I found!
Well, I read a book on skin anatomy long time ago, when I started reading about pain levels and an individual’s endurance it didn't take me so long to realize the connection between them. Let’s talk about some of my clients which include teenagers, Youth and some old age people. which will certainly put some light on this topic. On a fine morning I was setting up my machines for an angel tattoo and the lady sitting behind me looked nervous, she asked “Does it pain?” and I said “No, you will hardly feel a thing”. I started the machine and she pulled herself back, I stopped and mentioned “If you move or shake while tattooing you may ruin the design and I won’t be able to help”. She understood and I started making tattoo, after first few strokes I asked how’s she feeling? She said “I can feel some sensation on my skin however it’s not even near the pain I thought in my mind”. I completed the tattoo in next 2 hours and she looked absolutely comfortable.
The second experience was surprising for me as well. It was to highlight a shaky single lined Tattoo on the neck. The guy had heavy built and looked strong and the total time I estimated to finish the tattoo was 30-40 minutes. The moment I touched the needle on his neck he looked uncomfortable however I continued after a moment’s break. He kept saying finish it fast it’s painful. I’ve done many Tattoos on neck before however his expressions and posture was new for me. I finished the Tattoo in 35 minutes and he said “I am starving and need to eat something”. That’s the time when I realised what was happening.
Pain level depends on a person tolerance level. It changes from a person to person however; I cannot deny the artist’s experience plays a crucial role in minimising the pain. The one who knows the depth required to penetrate the skin (which is different for many body parts) certainly knows the trick to minimise the pain. In first example the fear of pain was stopping her to get a tattoo for a long time which ended positively. In second example client came empty stomach to get a Tattoo which seems really foolish. Some of the best tattoo artist in Delhi and India have put a note on their website mentioning about pre-Tattoo meals, I have also mentioned this on my website and I want you guys to understand why it is important. When you are on fast or you skip your meal your body start burning fats to keep you active and then muscles and tissues if you stay hungry for so long. It reduces the metabolism rate meant to keep you active. Make sure you take a healthy meal and something sweet to keep your blood sugar level up. It will help to reduce the pain and put defense mechanism at its best. It has been 5 years since I've been tattooing and learning never stops. I shared another experience of my life and hope you like it.
Remember Tattoo pains a bit however, "Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” Make your choice wisely.
Let me know if you've any question related to this article, I’ll certainly send you my opinion.
With the news of getting Tattoo Parlours growing speedily in Delhi, I’ve decided to guide you about how to choose the best tattoo parlour for yourself, what are the things you remain cautious about or look out for. Eventually, I promise you will land up in the hands of a customer friendly
and experienced Tattoo Artist. So let’s get started!
When you plan for a Tattoo you certainly wish to get a Tattoo parlour nearby and obviously all other things like Artist’s experience, behaviour, his portfolio, Hygiene and cleanliness, artistic skills become secondary for many people. No wonder why we get so many remorseful Tattoos for
touch-ups and rework. Criteria to choose the best tattoo artist in Delhi or anywhere else should be in the following order:
1. Hygiene and Cleanliness – This should be the top priority while visiting any Tattoo parlour. You can keep an eye around while talking to the receptionist/artist, if you don’t find the area neat and clean. Kindly move out without giving yourself a second thought.
2. Artist’s Portfolio – Remember to check the artist’s portfolio, if you don’t like what he has done in past, you certainly aren’t going to like the next Tattoo on yourself. Analyze the work properly and give yourself time before making the final decision.
3. Design Ideas – You should talk to the artist about your Tattoo and suggest any edit or additions well in advance. You may also pay a nominal fee for a unique design or a sketch to see if you like the design before getting any ink. If you are happy with the artist's skill on paper, you certainly would be the happiest with your Tattoo.
4. Before Getting Inked – Now you liked the parlour, the artist and ready for your new ink however, remember, most of the artists are using disposable products and throw them after single use in case you find your artist using steel products, don’t worry, some artists are still following the traditional way of Tattooing and there is no harm in it. Just make sure they are using sterilized equipments and following basic hygiene near their workstations.
Keeping these points in mind will certainly help you getting a vivid Tattoo. Don’t forget to read other articles pertaining to Tattoo benefits.
Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Best of Luck for your new Tattoo.
Love & Regards,
Ever wondered, why do we get tattoo deals at such dirt cheap prices whereas some respected artists and shops never follow the trend. Today, I am going to unveil the truths and show you the real benefits beneath such practices.
Well, when you decide to get a Tattoo you log in and search for; best Tattoo artist in Delhi, when you search such terms automatically few deal sites or deal advertisements pop up; probably you ignore however, majority of people don't and sometimes they are the ones who become hapless Victims later.
In the last few years of my Tattooing career I've observed many good, bad and wonderful Tattoos closely however, since the last one and a half year I've seen sudden increase in infected, faded, incorrectly placed or inappropriately shaped Tattoos. Clients were really unhappy and needed advice to settle these Tattoos. So, most of them were covered with other Tattoo design and a few were suggested laser surgery. One thing which annoyed me the most was, some of these people were from educated families and valued Art still they went for deals and discounts. Their explanations were “My friend took me there/ I thought people who are not giving deals are charging unnecessarily and so on...
My direct question to the readers, Do you think any Tattoo Artist will offer such big discounts (50% to 95%) who understands the time, efforts and dedication required to finish the piece? It needs years of practice and many sacrifices to be the best of the lot. I consider the clients equally responsible for their bad Tattoos as these artists who've not evolved in years and using deceptive conduct of business.
A true Artist will listen to your idea and certainly put forth his/her inputs for your benefit. We are in the world where people are spending lakhs of rupees for a painting on canvas which will be seen by handful of guests who visit your house and dying to get few thousands rupees discount on the art piece which will remain on your body till death and some say even after that.
I want people to understand the old saying "Good Tattoos aren’t cheap and Cheap Tattoos aren’t good".
Hope I've done my bit and you won't stumble next time you lookout for your Tattoo Shop.

I read this story few days ago and amazed to see such things happen till date. A Tattoo Artist who tattooed her girlfriend’s face in less than 24 hours after they met for the first time. Seems a fable to me, however, its true friends and certainly; very interesting.
Lesya Toumaniantz from Saransk, Russia, allowed Rouslan Toumaniantz (Artist) to tattoo a giant Gothic font, actually, it was Rouslan named as RUSLAN on her face. They first met online and soon decided to meet in Moscow – where they saw each other falling in love and took vows to get
I know you must be thinking that she took a silly decision and would regret later. Well sometimes the decisions made in haste are the ones which make you stronger than ever before.
Lesya has decided to cover her body with Tattoos, also, she has become an apprentice with Ruslan and learning to make Tattoos. All I could say is Best of Luck and may they live happily.
Today, I am going to discuss about skin tones and Tattoo pigments to be used on your body. You’ve decided to get a new Tattoo, well Congratulations! But your dilemma is what colours will look best on you. I’ll help.
If you have fair skin tone I advise to stick with some bright colours like red, pink, orange, blue along with some black and grey to get some depth in your Tattoo.
For slightly wheatish skin I advise to stick with Red, Maroon, Green, Purple to cover the bigger part and some light colours (if necessary) orange, white to highlight your Tattoo.
Let’s talk about the practical skin tone we see and work upon almost everyday, Brown/Dark brown Asian skin tones and probably, that’s why you are reading this article. Lighter and Semi- lighter colours do not do any justice with this skin tone. You need to understand that Tattoo Artists settle a Tattoo on the second layer (Dermis) of your skin and first layer epidermis plays a vital role in displaying your Tattoo to the world. I’ll try to explain this with an example, Assume Epidermis as a very thin plastic sheet, while making Tattoo your artist will tear this apart with the help of a needle and a Tattoo Machine. Once your Tattoo completes, the first layer of your skin is gone hence, your Tattoo looks very bright and sharp. However, with time, it heals and epidermis with a very thin membrane comes back, now, the result of your Tattoo depends on the colour of your skin if that’s fair your Tattoo looks brighter, if dark, comparatively dull.
There is a conception that if your skin is dark any white/light coloured Tattoo will look good. Trust me, you’ll get the pain and end up with a sad result.
I recommend getting a black and grey or old school black Tattoo for wheatish or dark skin tones. These are some of the best choices to make you happy.
Hope I was of some help.
Thanks for reading,
You see people with Tattoos almost everyday and wonder if you can get one? But with this thought few other questions come up in your mind like pain, infection quality, brightness, artist’s competence, hygiene etc.
Today I will talk about your fears and hopefully help you to overcome these barriers which are stopping you to get a quality Tattoo. Firstly, I welcome all of you into the word of realism and 3d art where you can turn any design into reality. Gone are the days of getting all black Tattoos. You need to let your artist’s imagination work and come with plenty of time, after all you reserve a day to buy a mobile phone so why not let’s reserve a day for some Tattoos and celebrate it to the fullest. Remember, you are adding a new body part which will be known as TATTOO.
Tattoo is a popular art of self-expression and I strongly believe it shows your individuality and makes your presence much stronger among others, when you choose your Tattoo and your Artist carefully. The combination of these two can make or shake your Tattoo experience drastically.
I consider Tattoo making equivalent to a small surgery. It includes ink, needles, gloves, sweet pain and some droplets of blood. Certainly, it’s a good idea to get a Tattoo but more importantly you should realise where to get a Tattoo? You may go to the shops near your house and keep a close eye on the cleanliness they’ve maintained inside their shop. If your Artist is using disposable products, sterilized equipments, and you love his/her portfolio. I bet you are all set. Go and get a good one!!
Once healed, your Tattoo is not bad for your skin. Issues arise, in fact, when complications occur during the healing process. Infections are very uncommon if you remember above mentioned points however, I don’t deny it can never happen. After getting a nice vibrant Tattoo it is your responsibility to take care of your Tattoo. Please check out our aftercare link to understand it briefly.
Hope I’ve done my bit. In case you need any help you may get in touch via

Every tattoo artist must’ve heard this question a hundred times, so what is the Answer?
Well, It seems really simple to me, When you plan to get a tattoo certainly ideas starts pouring into your mind and makes you little confused about what to get and what not. Here are few tips to settle your decision:
Shortlist few tattoo designs and make a search on internet, every minute spent doing a little research before getting a tattoo can save you from regret.
Choose your Tattoo Artist wisely and discuss the design. Ask what more can be added to enhance the beauty of your design. Background and Shading plays vital role in this. Understand your profession and choose the placement area accordingly, if you work or plan to work in a professional company, getting a big spider around your neck is certainly not a good idea.
Speaking with your artist can broaden the horizon of your Tattoo idea.
Make sure the design has a meaning to you and that it is inevitably a reflection of the self. Check books, posters, cartoons or anything else that interests you, not just any design on the tattoo studio’s wall.
Once you finalize your tattoo, just go for it and enjoy some ink! Make sure you read aftercare (http://www.artnskintattoos.com/after-care.html) instructions at our website which are equally important to keep your tattoo vibrant and healthy.
Best of luck for your new Tattoo!!
