You may be in the tattoo area for a few hours, so it’s important to ensure that you are feeling your best. You can bring some chocolate or fruit that you can eat during the breaks.




HOW LONG DOES IT USUALLY TAKE FOR A TATTOO TO HEAL?


The healing process can vary depending on a number of factors such as age, health conditions, immune system etc. However, we estimate that for a healthy individual is about 2 weeks to 1 month until the skin fully regenerates.




WHAT IS YOUR WORKING HOURS?


Our working hours for tattoos are from 2pm to 7pm.




WILL I NEED TO LEAVE DEPOSIT?


Yes, if you wish to book an appointment, we will ask you for a deposit to secure that spot for you.




WHAT DO I NEED TO DO AFTER TATTOO?


The tattoo artists will explain the aftercare to you once the tattoo is done and you will be given all the information in writing as well.




HOW DO YOU PRICE TATTOOS?


Tattoos are priced based on design and body position. We take into account the amount of time, the tools that will be required and the preperation of the design.




CAN I BRING MY CHILDREN TO YOUR STUDIO?


Children are not allowed inside the studio, this applies to the reception area too. Anyone under the age of 16 will be asked to leave the premises. We apologise for any problems this may cause, however, tattoo studios are not a suitable place for children.




WILL YOU E-MAIL ME THE DESIGN BEFORE I GET THE TATTOO?


As a shop policy, we do not send the designs over beforehand. The tattoo artists work on each customer’s design shortly before the tattoo happens and will have it ready for you when you come to the studio. If you wish to do any changes to the design, that’s absolutely fine and we will make sure that you are 100% happy with the design before starting to tattoo.




CAN I GET TATTOOED IF I HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION


We will not refuse tattooing someone based on a medical condition, but if you are afraid that it may in some way affect your health, it’s better to speak to your doctor beforehand.




DO YOU DO COVER-UPS AND REWORKS?


Yes, we do. Our artists are very skilled at this. We will ask you to come to the studio for a consultation beforehand to have a word with one of the tattoo artists and discuss your ideas. If the tattoo is very dark/fresh, we may advise you to get some laser removal sessions in order to lighten it up a bit, and then we will be able to help you out. We also have a laser removal service in the studio.




CAN YOU TATTOO OVER A SCAR?


As long as the scar is over 1 year old, we can tattoo over it, however it is always best to book a consultation to discuss your ideas regarding this and to allow the artist to have a conversation with you about your goals for the tattoo.




WILL YOU TOUCH UP A TATTOO I GOT SOMEWHERE ELSE?


Depending on what tattoo/where in the body it is, we may do it. Please email us photos of the existing tattoo and we will let you know.




I HAVE CHANGED MY MIND. CAN I GET MY DEPOSIT BACK?


As the information stated in the appointment card when you made your appointment, deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable, this means you will not be able to use your deposit, although exceptions may apply at our discretion. Provided you give us at least 72 h notice, we will be able to change your appointment to a later date (for a maximum of 2 times).




I NEED A TOUCH-UP WHAT SHOULD I DO?


Touch ups are free of charge when done within three months of your initial appointments and caused by us, please get in contact with us after the first month, giving your skin time to heal before touching your tattoo up. Sadly, we do not offer free touch ups on fingers, palms, soles or inner lip tattoos.
