A tattoo is very much a long-term decision. Therefore, you should make some considerations before you go ahead and dive into the world of body art.
What design do you want?
Similarly with normal tattoos, the biggest thing to consider is what design you want. However, with stick and pokes, its best to stick to smaller designs that are less complex. This is because stick and pokes take longer and are much more difficult to create more complicated pieces. However, when you practice and become more experienced, you'll be surprised what you can achieve with a DIY approach.
Where will the design go?
Due to the fact that stick and pokes are a slow and steady process, its wise to choose an area where you're happy to spend considerable time creating the design. Painful areas, such as shoulders, chest and ankles are probably not the best area to choose. Trust us, we've been there. Long periods of pain aren't fun!
