My Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close tattoos. Both done by Jessie McNally at Steady Tattoo in Minneapolis. The first was done in 2011 and the second in 2014.

chicgeekme asked: Hi! I love your blog you are gorgeous! I had a question, I want to get a few small tattoos eventually ( Id have them now but my dads against them and im still stuck at home. :/ ) But i was wondering how to know if a place is legit or not. Anything I should look for or be wary of when choosing a tattoo artist?
Hey! Thanks a lot! First of all , have a look around that everything is well clean, if the front room is a mess chances are the rest isn’t that neat either and hygiene is the basic requirement. When you ask (politely of course) to see the autoclave and about how they clean their material that should be no problem. In general a tattooist should take the time to answer your questions .What you can do is ask other people where they got tattooed and how their exprience was. Look around at portfolios artists and see who’s style goes along with what you had in mind. When you want to talk about your idea and set an appointment bring reference material!
I’m pretty sure they hate me and don’t want to admit it.
I’m pretty sure I annoy them and they don’t want to tell me.
I’m pretty sure they want to let me go but don’t want to hurt me.
