Podcast: On Tattoos 5/6 – Aftercare.

The fifth part of On Tattoos has just gone live on Anchor, iTunes, and Google Play. In this episode, I go over all the ins and outs of tattoo healing: Do’s and Don’ts, what changes to expect as your skin heals, how to wash and dry your tattoo, what “dry” and “wet” healing are (though not which is best, that’s something you’ll find out for yourself), and give other bits and pieces of advice I’ve amassed over half a decade of getting tattooed (so far)!

Please do subscribe on your preferred platform to catch the final part as it is released, and future podcast mini-series!

As always, if any of you have any comments or questions about this episode, drop me a line and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Podcast: On Tattoos 4/6 – How to survive getting tattooed!

This latest episode of On Tattoos comes a little later than intended, due to a combination of events (poor health, travel, family commitments), but is here at last! This week I speak about the process of actually getting tattooed: How to prepare for tattoo sessions and what to bring with you, how it feels and how to handle the pain discomfort, about taking breaks, and try to dispel some common misconceptions about the process of getting inked. I hope listening to this will help give some of you a better idea of what to expect and how to better your chances of having a fun, healthy, and positive experience, and removes some of your fears.
