Not much beforehand other than to make sure you're clean. Then afterward follow the instructions they give you at the tattoo place and keep a close eye on it.

Sterilize, sterilize, and sterilize again. This includes cleaning and sterilizing all tools involved and the site that you plan to brand. After branding, gently dab with iodine and loosely bandage with cotton gauze.
Change the gauze and re-dab with iodine 1-2 times daily. Monitor for signs of infection.
