    I was under the impression that this was a major nono, yet i walked into a shop the other day and saw a woman getting a lower back tattoo (tramp) and drinking a beer. now im not sure if the artist just didnt care because this girl was just a dumb broad or if he really just wasnt concerned in general. it was a pretty reputable shop.

    dont they usually tell u that u shouldnt drink alcohol or caffeine before getting a tattoo done? im not too sure, just thought i heard something along that lines.

    i hope that the customer came in sober and wasnt drunk/tipsy and just ended up getting a tattoo she didnt really want. unless maybe she was drinking later on just to ease herself from getting it done?

    well, either way i dont see any justification in allowing the woman to drink while getting worked on. just seems unprofessional.

    There's a couple reasons why you shouldn't drink.

    1. alcohol thins your blood
    2. alcohol effects your judgement in tattoo selection
    3. most people won't sit still if their drunk.

    We don't allow people to drink while getting tattooed at my shop except for a few exceptions. If it's afterhours and it's a friend getting tattooed then we don't care. I've been tattooed while drinking at my shop but I wasn't drunk, just lightly buzzed.

    Well if it was a good shop then they shouldent have let the person drink while under the gun. When you sign consent papers it states that your sober and not under the influence of ANY drugs. IMO its a bad idea to get drunk, maybe one or two beers wouldent be that bad. Smoking a joint would be a better idea IMO than drinking.

    I've seen more customers move around, complain and get queasy/naseous while getting tattooed high.

    I'd have to say no, on this one. My mom went in completely smashed when she was 21. It was supposed to be a butterfly and rose on her shoulder...after it healed, it was a green and red blob from the ink bleeding out.

    I usually have a Beer or two, but it doesn't affect me. I barely bleed.

    Hate to thread-mine but I figure better than starting a new topic.

    If not alcohol, what about other methods of relaxation, etc. Anything that potentially wouldn't affect the quality of the tattoo and cause excess bleeding? Perhaps valium? I find myself wanting a tattoo more and more nowadays but I (a) hate needles and (b) am not necessarily the most pain tolerant individual.

    You should've just made a new thread.

    Don't take anything, learn how to breathe and relax.

    how many hours of tattooing have you sat through?

    im a major proponent of drinking while getting tattooed. youre not going to bleed any more than usual unless youve been drinking all day. ive been tattooed sober and drunk/on pills and i prefer to be drinking while doing it.

    I was under the impression from some of my tattooed friends that thinner blood and excess bleeding could actually affect the quality of the work. Is that not true?

    an hour. I'm no bad ass like you. but i'm no fan of drinking or drugs. From all the tattoo artists i've talked to and friends of mine that have had extensive tattoo work done, it's not a good idea to go in drunk or drinking. A beer, fine and dandy, I don't think you're going to bleed like a stuck pig from one beer, but going in on Valium because you're freaked out doesn't seem like a good idea.

    But that's JUST my opinion.

    I pass out getting blood taken because I don't like those type of needles. Tattoo needles look NOTHING like that type. They're smaller than a sewing needle.

    I think that if you drink the day before you get tattooed, it will thin your blood up some. During the tattoo probably wouldnt change as much. The biggest problem that you move around alot while drunk and dont realize it.
