Why book a local tattoo artist through Airtasker?

As with any form of art, there’s a great range of styles and quality in the world of tattoos. If you’re looking for a tattoo with meaning that you’re going to be proud of for years to come, it pays to do your research. Even a simple job like tattooing the name of a loved one can go wrong if you choose your artists without care.

Whether you want a male or female tattoo artist, someone who specialises in colours or typography or someone for a small job or a full sleeve, a tattoo is for life.

On Airtasker, you can post an ad with any reasonable requests you can think of, the full scope of what you want done and the money you’re prepared to pay. Tattoo artists near you then have the opportunity to message you with ideas for you to consider or simply to take on the job.

Top Tattoo Artists related questions

Yes. Tattoo artists are happy to give you what you want – whether that's getting them to design something for you or to ink your own design on your skin. Be sure to double check any spellings before getting the tattoo.

It's a good idea to eat before you get your tattoo done, as having low blood sugar can lead to fainting. It's important that you do not drink alcohol or take recreational drugs before getting tattooed.

When the tattoo artist is finished, the tattoo is normally covered. After two hours, you can take this off and wash the tattoo, being careful when you dry it. Moisturise the tattoo three times a day for 10 days afterwards and avoid scratching, swimming and too much exposure to the sun while the area is healing.

Getting a tattoo is generally described as being uncomfortable rather than painful, however different areas of the body are more sensitive and pain thresholds vary from person to person. The fact that many people come back time and time again shows that it can't be too painful.

A bad tattoo artist is to be avoided at all costs, as their artwork will stay with you for life. Tattoo artists are generally taken on as apprentices (rather than going through TAFE or university). Making sure someone has the experience and a strong portfolio is vital.

Suggested reads about Tattoo Artists

What do tattoo artist services include?

A tattoo artist’s job is to permanently ink a design of your choosing onto your skin. Done well, this piece of art will stay with you for life – which is why you want to hire someone who knows their craft and preferably completed an apprenticeship in an established salon. 

Depending on your preference, a tattoo artist can create a design for you, you can choose from pre-designed templates or you can come up with your own design. If you want a name, quote or meaningful phrase, you’ll get a pick of fonts or handwriting styles to choose from. This is all done in a sterile environment. 

Complete design

Although it costs more to have a tattoo artist come up with an individual design for you, it allows you to have a professionally-designed tat that you’ll be proud of. They’ll work in consultation with you to get an idea of your preferences and styles, then come up with a design based on your input. 

Tattoo typography

Simple words and phrases are a popular choice of tattoo – from the classic ‘Mum’ to names of loved ones or inspirational quotes. Tattoo artists can either handwrite these on your skin or you can pick a font together. As you’ll no doubt have learnt from photo galleries, it’s vital to triple check your spelling and grammar before getting anything inked – especially for foreign phrases and characters.  

Tattoo coverup

Whether it’s the name of an ex or you’ve simply grown sick of an old tattoo, there comes a time when you might change your mind. While tattoo lasering is an option, you can often incorporate words or images into a new design that will give your skin a new lease of life. 

Henna tattoo

If you’re keen on decorating your skin but you’re not sure about the commitment of a tattoo, you may prefer to speak to a henna tattoo artist. Henna art originates from ancient Egypt and India and lasts for around two weeks.
