Going on vacation causes people to lessen some of their inhibitions. They often do things they wouldn’t normally do because they are in a different environment. But of all the new things you may want to explore and try, getting a tattoo should not be one of them. Tattoo shops in tourist towns know they are going to be their most busy during the tourist season so they will price their work to reflect that. So, you’ll be likely to pay much more than in a non-tourist tattoo shop. When getting a tattoo it is advisable to develop some kind of relationship with the artist in case you have any problems with the tattoo or need a touch up. If you get work done in a tourist town this won’t be possible, so it’s best to wait until you get home and find a reputable shop in your area.

When a person is drunk, they often think of themselves as invincible and can do anything they want. But, when it comes to getting a tattoo, doing it drunk is completely out of the question and depending on your location, a crime.

On top of that, a drunk person may like the tattoo design or placement of the tattoo while they’re drunk, but after sobering up they realize that getting drunk the night before wasn’t the only mistake they made.
