Take a shower
Don’t bring your kids. No really, don’t bring them.
Bring all of the necessary documentation
Good work costs money - so bring it!
Eat before you come in!
If you’re diabetic plan for a crash (and prepare yourself!)
Your idea may not be able to be tattooed
Just because you saw it on Pinterest doesn’t make it a good tattoo
Don’t put words with pictures - we’re going to try to talk you out of it because of that whole “a picture is worth 1000 words” thing
Make sure you are well rested, well hydrated, and have eaten recently. Aside from that, take a shower, charge your phone or tablet up to full, and don’t bring in your 50 closest friends (1-2 are fine).
