The oldest evidence of human tattoos is believed to be from between 3370 BC and 3100 BC. They were a form of artwork, tribal rank, communication, symbolism, religion etc. Ironically, they are used for a lot of the same reasons to this day. Love them or hate them, they are and have been part of the human culture for about as long as there have been humans roaming the Earth.
So when is the best time of year to get tattooed?
The short answer: Fall and Winter. The question you have now is "why"? Well you're in luck we are going to give you the top 3 reasons why the Fall and Winter are the best time to see your artist for a session.
It's Hot: Let's be honest, sweating isn't on the list of things we enjoy doing. In the winter months it's a lot more temperate in the studio and that makes for a lot less sweating for both of you. There are two truths about sweating, no one likes sweating while they work and no one likes sweating while they wait. Definitely easier to avoid both in the cooler months.
Tattoo Health: We sweat less in the fall and winter, and so less of an opportunity for your tattoo to be unprotected and more opportunity for it to heal faster, minimize the chance of infection, and heal properly . By the time T-shirt season arrives, your tattoo will have completely healed and you can strut you tattoo around town with pride!
Openings: What's the worst thing you can hear when you're craving tattoo therapy? "I'm sorry bud I'm booked". The impulse to want to be tattooed in the Spring and Summer months is due to wardrobe mostly, more skin showing, more tattoo showing. The great thing about the Fall and Winter schedule is that there is usually plenty of room for quality time with your artist. That means more time to collaborate on the design, more time to really focus on your tattoo, and definitely a calmer vibe in the studio overall.
There are a lot of really good reasons to get tattooed in the Fall and Winter these are just a few. Plus what better gift to get or give for the holiday's then a session with your artist!
