Have had a few tattoos done previously with no issues, This is the first one ive had however whilst im lying down.

However when I had a medium size piece on my arm done earlier, half way through i felt light headed and then every light looked really bright.

So I told the tattooist and he said just rest for a few minutes and have some water, within seconds I went back to normal again

I think the culprit was because I wasn't breathing properly as I was quite tensed and concentrating on trying not to move, could also be because I didnt have a sugary snack or drink before the tattoo. ??

 

The tattoo came out perfectly however

yep ! you need to pre-hydrate and the best thing to do when feeling light headed is to eat some candy,

of course eating a good meal before getting tattooed is a no brainer.

that little tattoo should be an easy one,

You've got this, piece of cake.

I was taught several years ago the technique of "belly breathing". On the inhale you push your stomach outward fully. The idea being that your diaphragm drops further, pulling air more deeply into your lungs. It seems odd at first, but is easy to get the hang of. It really helps relieve stress. Do it slowly, concentrating on each breathe.

Good luck! 👍

Had the tattoo just now, took about one hour.

Woke up. Had some toast, then my meds, then some cerial, then a breakfast bar, then sipped on non fizzy energy drink all through the session.

No dizziness or anything unusual.

 

Will post pics of tattoo later 🙂

    • Keep looking and next time book mark it. 😉
    • Small detailed tattoos on thin delicate skin are the most prone to blowouts. I don’t think there is anything you can do to cause or prevent them.
    • Hello everyone! on Friday I got my first tattoo, a small dagger, like 5cm on the back of my hand. I think this was the absolute right decision, but I am a bit afraid of the aftercare, because there are some Details, which I would like to preserve. As this is my first tattoo and there are three questions which I couldn’t find answers on: No.1 I am currently living in Athens and the tap water is relatively heavy chlorinated, which makes me unsure about showering and washing, should that be any problem? No.2 During the days the sun is always shining. In the last few days I’ve hid in my flat to let the tattoo heal but tomorrow I have to get to work, would it be an idea to use a band aid to cover the tattoo from the sun? No.3 The possibly most shitty thing with this small detailed tattoo would be blowouts, how do they happen? Until now everything looks just fine, but I am a bit scarred to F*** everything up if I stretch my hands to strong or move them in a wrong way. I am completly paranoid about everything right now, but I think that’s kind of normal.   Thanks for the help and best regards! Anton
