Is prethINK telling me not to get a tattoo?


Absolutely not. PrethINK was formed by tattoo artists. PrethINK's message is simply to educate and assist you in making healthy choices about your tattoos, your tattoo artist, and your tattoo studio.


Is prethINK telling me that tattoos are unsafe?


To an extent. Tattoos can be dangerous; however, they are perfectly safe if they are applied by professionals in licensed tattoo studios by trained professionals and proper aftercare methods are performed.


I just turned 16 years old, Can my parent sign for me to be tattooed?


In North Carolina, you must be 18 years of age to legally get a tattoo. Each state in the U.S. has their own legislation. Some states allow minors to be tattooed under the age of 18 with parental consent, however prethINK discourages any minor receiving a tattoo.


As a tattoo artist, are you discouraging me from getting a tattoo?


We are not discouraging, nor are we encouraging. PrethINK is about making a healthy decision, no matter what it is.  When it comes to any decision that permanently alters your appearance, it is essential to do your research.

My friend is having a tattoo party, Can't I just get a tattoo there cheaper?


Maybe so, but with that cheap tattoo comes a potentially permanent price in the form of infection, disease, or a bad tattoo. Tattoos should only be performed in a clean, licensed tattoo facility by properly trained professional tattoo artists.


Are all tattoo artists the same?


No, every tattoo artist is different. Many artists specialize in only one style of tattooing. Some tattoo artists focus only on flash art (supplied artwork by artists available for reproduction). Artists that are versatile are capable of tattooing in many styles. It is best to seek out an artist that is capable of producing the results that match your inspiration. You want to find a tattoo artist that is as excited about tattooing you as you are about receiving the tattoo.


Where can I find more information about prethINK and the programs that are available to me?


You may click on the "Seminars"  page and  download our brochure.  In it you will find a fun call to action that will provide empowerment and encourage individuals to make healthier choices in their lives
