    Talking first tattoo next week!

    im all excited, im going to intro next week to get my first tattoo
    i'l be getting the word "why?" on my right foot
    just a few things i was wondering..
    what should i have for footwear? i presume my usual trainers would rub too much? and do i need to get anything specific in for aftercare and such?

    any advice would be appreciated
    thanks xx

    Just flip flops and such would be good for a while, coco butter is good for aftercare I've used it for all three of my tattoos. ^_^
    BTW: Congratulations.

    I agree, flip flops or sandals with not much of a 'top' to them if you get what I mean!! I, like a lot of others swear by bepanthen for healing...it's all I've ever used and my tattoos have been healed in a week with hardly any scabby bits....whether thats the bepanthen or just the way my own skin heals I don't know but its what I recommend.

    I bet you're dead excited! I'm sure it will be the first of many once the bug gets you!

    Is there a reason you're getting the word why? I'm curious (or just plain nosy)

    Bepanthen works best for me for healing but you'll get aftercare instructions from the tattooist.

    I read your post from a couple years ago and think it is a great idea!! I am very interested to see how it turned out (ie. what letteering you used etc). Can you describe or send a picture? Also, (I know what mine would be but I am curious about your take) what do you say when people ask you what it mean or "why, 'why'"?
    Thanks!!
