Since I started to talk to people about Nurse Mary J and tattoo aftercare, lots of really great questions have come my way. I made a FAQ page so that it would be easy for you to find the answers to the most common questions people ask.
I thought some questions were better to answer in blog form, so today I'll start a series discussing some of the other things people ask me a lot.
Can You Help Me Find a Quality Tattoo Artist?
