    Red face Tattoo Advice

    Hey Guys, I'm having a tattoo on my foot in 10 days :O, it's my first one so I'm bricking it a bit! My sitting is booked for 2 hours, but will only be just over an hour (I had to book 2, just I case he runs over the hour to perfect the tat). Anyways, my boss wants me to work the evening of this day. I was wondering if you guys could advise me whether to do this, as I obviously have no experience with tattoo healing, as this will be my first one. I work in a bar and should be working from 6pm until the early hours of the morning (one of the staff is having a leaving party). Thanks in advance!

    Me too! I call it tattoo flu cause it rhymes

    But really I can't add much other than what these guys have said. Make sure you have a decent meal before work and have a sugary drink with you if you feel yourself struggling, also ibuprofen (if you can take it) will be your BFF

    Cheers guys . will definitely be keeping ibuprofen close by. I always eat before work, because I like to stuff my face x). My boss is really good to me, so if I felt crappy he'd let me chill out for a bit and feed me haha. Think he said it's cool though so no worries at all . Thanks for the advice, and I'm sure I'll be asking more when it's done!

    Ok cheers guys . Turns out I have to work now, as I really need the money! My boss is cool with the whole 'sitting down and resting' malarkey, so he wont force me to do loads of work . I was just wondering what sort of shoes and socks you recommend? (weird I know, but someone who spends her life in hi-tops had probably use a different pair of shoes). Luckily I'm not staring til 8pm, so will be able to wash it etc before work . Any help greatly appreciated

    I wore converse high tops to the tattoo and home then it was a mix of them and vans slip ons. Just whatever you're comfortable with, what doesn't cause you discomfort.
