Everything about your first tattoo, start small and simple

Updated: Dec 22, 2023

Everything about your first tattoo

Are you trying to find the best tattoo shop or an artist in Toronto?

Here at Hon Tattoo Studio, our goal is to provide the best experience for those getting their first tattoo. If you're thinking about getting a tattoo for the first time, we recommend starting with a small and simple design. Many people associate tattoos with large and intimidating designs, but there are also small and straightforward options. Trying something new can be quite a challenge.

Are you looking for cheap tattoos?

However, one of the reasons clients get frustrated is the price. Sometimes the tattoo you want turns out to be more expensive than you initially thought. Due to budget constraints, you might end up giving up or seeking a cheaper alternative. However, when the price is lower, there is usually a reason for it. With this post, we'd like to explain why opting for cheap doesn't always meet your expectations. Often, when tattoos are priced lower than the market average, they are typically done by junior artists or apprentices.

Hon Tattoo Studio boasts more than thirty tattoo artists, each with an average of 7 years of experience. We highly value our artists, considering them the best in Toronto and, furthermore, in Canada. There aren't many tattoo shops with such a high number of experienced artists currently. We would like to go over and explain what that really means for both a tattoo shop and a tattoo artist.

1. Hon Tattoo artists are capable of conducting highly productive communication with their clients. With many years of experience, they usually grasp the client's desires right away, making the one-on-one, in-person consultation much smoother.

2. Artists with years of experience also prioritize understanding the client's skin tone. Depending on the client's skin tone, the artist carefully selects colors and adjusts the ink density. Knowing the tone of your skin is very important. Identifying right skin tone will help you see the tattoo aesthetically better. If you have a lighter skin tone and if the artist pick too strong color, it may look so strongly but the details won't be as noticeable as it should be. If you have darker skin and the artist uses light and soft colors, the tattoo won't be really visible as it should be.

3. The quality of Hon Tattoo artists is unparalleled. Many clients getting their first tattoos opt for simple words or designs with lines. Even with small and straightforward designs, minor details matter significantly. For instance, in a few lines, if one is slightly tilted or crooked, it becomes very noticeable compared to larger tattoo designs. Line work is basic yet crucial, especially for small tattoos.

Are you worried about how people will perceive your tattoo?

Small and simple tattoos are a pretty good solution for that, especially if it's your first time getting a tattoo. You can start with smaller ones. Also, they're hard to seen unless you choose to show them. This doesn't mean you have to hide them, but we're just giving you a general idea. You might think people really care about your tattoo however, frankly, they care a lot less than you think. Wherever you bring your tattoo, whether it's to work, school, or a religious event, the tattoo won't hinder your presence. You are who you are.

Having a hard time deciding what kind of small tattoo you want?

When you're getting your first tattoo, it's really important to figure out what you want. Tattoos come in lots of different styles and ideas. Even if you're thinking of something small and simple, it's a good idea to meet with the artist in person. During this meeting, you can talk about the kind of design you like. Take a look at the artist's previous work in their portfolio to make sure they can do what you have in mind.

If you're having trouble deciding on a design, don't hesitate to reach out to the artist directly. They can be a great help in guiding you through the process.
