I'll get my first tattoo next Monday and I'm nervous, becaus

I'll get my first tattoo next Monday and I'm nervous, because I've read and heard many complains about people getting serious skin infections and I'm afraid this will happen to me as well. I want to hear from your experiences.

I have a few tattoos. Nothing huge or anything. No problems. Just make sure you go somewhere clean and dont get anything you might regret... I got my ex wifes name on my chest and now Im needing something to cover it up.

@SoloDad Thank you. One thing I really need for myself in order to get a tattoo is that I need to be mentally prepared for any physical discomfort/pain. Luckily, getting a tattoo on an outer arm won’t be a trouble. Most of my close folks want theirs.

@CKBlossom I’ve never heard of that.
