What Type Of Tattoo Customer Are You?

21inkedd in Guides

Getting a tattoo is a momentous occasion for anyone, you are marking your body for the rest of your life.

For some its a time of jubilation and excitement, for others its a time of quiet reflection and thought. Each person who gets tattooed has a unique experience, yet each person arguably fits into one of three categories. 1) The Talker, 2) The Screamer and 3) The Silent.

Perhaps this a generalisation of people who get tattooed, but nevertheless most people will find that when getting tattooed they fit into one of the three categories! So which one are you?

1) The Talker

When getting tattooed it is common place to hold small talk or general conversation with the tattoo artist at work. Yet the talker takes this to new levels, the talker is a person who when getting tattooed treats it as a form of therapy. They share their problems, tell the artist every small detail of their life and fill them in on what every aspect of their tattoo is and means. The talker is by no means an annoyance they just make the most of their tattoo time.

2) The Screamer
As the name suggests the screamer is someone who is rather vocal when being tattooed, and not in the sense of the talker. The screamer is a person who lets the pain of their tattoo get the better of them and isn't afraid to show it, they will moan, wail and scream their way through the tattooing...but they will nonetheless get it done!

Nothing like a relaxing tattoo...

3) The Silent

In opposition to the talker, the silent customer is an individual who uses their time being tattooed for reflection. They will of course make the obligatory small talk but will refrain from any real in depth conversation. Instead the silent customer will simply sit and receive their tattoo in relative peace, in a way the silent customer is like the talker in the manner in which they use their tattooing time to have some me time...If not maybe they're in so much pain they can't speak...who knows?!?

He seems to be enjoying himself!
