You might not know it, but there's a lot that goes into a tattoo artist's prep work before needle meets skin. The tools a tattoo artist needs to do their amazing work don't just materialize out of the ether and set themselves up.

In the first episode of FMX's Tattoo Tuesday, we take a look at what a tattoo artist does to prepare to ink a customer.

Stay True Tattoo's Veronica allowed us to get a glimpse at what all goes into her pre-tattooing process and walked us through the steps she takes to ensure a customer's safety and satisfaction.

In the behind-the-scenes clip (which you can watch above), we see how Veronica prepares to add a new tattoo to FMX deejay Heathen's already well-inked arm. Expect to see more of Heathen's new tattoo and what went into it in next week's episode of Tattoo Tuesday.
