Frequently asked questions..??


How do I prepare to come and make an appointment?


First of all, make sure you have an idea of what subject and placement you want.

 Bring some pictures of tattoos you like.

 basically anything is possible., we will work together to make it happen. However, please remember a tattoo is not paper. We will have to take into consideration of what is possible and what is not.

 

 

 

 

Should I shave?


Please, do not. We do the shaving for you, it’s free!

 

 

 

 

 

Does getting a tattoo hurt?


It will most likely not feel like getting a massage. Although the pain is relative and depends a lot on the placement.  Do not let the pain discourage you, we take care of our customers and you are free to ask for a break  whenever you want or feel like you need it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How do I take care of my tattoo?


After the tattoo has been done, we attach a plastic foil to the skin.

You’re supposed to take it off after 2 hours,

and cleanse the skin with luke water –no soap- by hand.

Do not dry the skin by rubbing with a towel. Be gentle and dab .

Leave the tattoo free of ointment for the rest of the day.

The day after, you’re supposed to rub Bepanthol (can be acquired at the pharmacist) about 3 – 4 times a day on the tattoo. Do not use too much, but make sure it is well-applied and massaged in the skin.

Some crusts may start to form, and some small skin particles may come off , that is completely normal. Keep continuing the routine until there are no more noticeable raised parts and has become completely matte.  for bigger pieces we have a different approach (you will be informed by your artist)

In case you have more questions while your tattoo is healing, do not hesitate to contact us.

 

 

 

What if my tattoo is hurting and red?


Some itching, redness and sensitivity is completely normal for the first days . However you should not be in pain.

Should you be, please , Cleanse the tattoo carefully, do not scratch and let your artist know .

 

 

 

About cover-ups:


Please come and visit the shop, there are many factors we have to take into consideration.

First and foremost how old the tattoo is. How well it has been placed, the design and darkness of the design itself and how we can integrate it in the idea you’ve got in mind.

 

 

 

I am allergic to latex, does this cause any problems?


We have nitrile gloves, so there is nothing to worry about. However if you happen to be allergic, please let us know before we start.

 

 


Can you tattoo everything ? 


 Small things never last forever .

Some scars are not possible to cover ,please let us know if you want a scar covered

We will always take everything in consideration but don’t do copy’s
