A deep Dive and a bit of fun with ChatGPT an Ai language model that can be used for interesting things. Its an interesting adventure to ask Ai about an industry im deeply passionate about, the part that becomes surprising is how much I agree with what it finds.. below is just a taste, Ill be posting more Blog posts like this as I find Ai to absolutely fascinating!
TATTOO ETIQUETTE (in the eyes of Ai)
Tattoos can be a serious business, but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun with tattoo etiquette! Here are some humorous do's and don'ts to keep in mind when getting inked.
Do your research: Don't just walk into any old tattoo shop and hope for the best. You wouldn't order a pizza without checking Yelp, so why would you trust your skin to just anyone?
Do communicate clearly: The tattoo artist is not a mind reader, so make sure you're clear about what you want. If you're looking for a picture of your pet cat wearing a top hat and monocle, say so! They've probably heard weirder requests.
Do come prepared: Getting a tattoo can take a while, so make sure you've had a good meal and taken care of any "business" before you get started. No one wants to be stuck in a tattoo chair with a grumbling stomach or a full bladder.
Do follow proper aftercare: Taking care of your tattoo is like taking care of a baby...except it's on your body and won't cry at 2am. Follow the instructions given by your tattoo artist and avoid exposing your new ink to direct sunlight, extreme temperatures, or your annoying cousin who won't stop touching it.
Don't haggle over price: Bargaining with a tattoo artist is like trying to haggle with a dentist over the cost of a root canal. Just pay the price and be thankful you're not getting a root canal.
Don't show up intoxicated: The last thing you want is a tattoo that says "I love Mom" in Chinese characters when you asked for "I love pizza". Save the booze for after the tattoo is done.
Don't bring a large entourage: You're getting a tattoo, not a circus. Bringing a whole crowd of people to watch is just distracting for the artist and weird for everyone else.
In conclusion, this Ai stuff is nuts and yup... I agree with everything it came up with!
