PLEASE: Do not get a tattoo if you are feeling ill. Be sure to wait until you're feeling better before getting that tattoo.
-Food and rest are important. If you get tattooed on an empty stomach or if you are drunk, it may cause you to feel faint, nauseated, or dizzy.
-Don't take pain killers like aspirin, ibuprofen, and anesthetics, which may cause increased bleeding or other problems.
-It is not wise to get tattooed if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
-The local department of health in your area can advise you if there is an age limit for getting a tattoo and you will probably need a valid form of identification with you.
