TOMMY Helm’s seen it all, saved it all. Here’s the ad­vice from the mas­ter:

NEVER tat­too a lover’s name or por­trait (it’s a curse). “Don’t do it! Un­less you’ve been with them for a very long time, I would want to say to my clients ‘don’t’,” Helm says.

DO it sober: “Be­hind ev­ery bad tat­too, al­co­hol is nearly al­ways in­volved.”

WILL it hurt? Yes – es­pe­cially on the feet, shoul­der blade and rib cage

AVOID the im­pulse tat­too. “That’s the whole thing with im­pulse tat­toos – an im­pulse can change in min­utes. If you get some­thing on a whim, it’s likely that you’ll hate it later.”

DO some­thing ex­cit­ing. “I al­ways ad­vise clients to do their re­search. Come in and be ex­cited about what you are go­ing to get.”
