HOW DO I BOOK IN FOR A TATTOO ?
You can fill out this form with a description of what you want to get, some reference images if possible,
body placement and a picture of it (specially if it's a cover up or you have to fill a gap).
A deposit (depending on the tattoo quote) is required in order to book in
Once the deposit has been paid we can proceed with the booking
(all the details will be sent out via email once you're ready to book)
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Prices vary depending on the actual design, placement, details, size etc.
DO YOU DO (STUDENT) DISCOUNTS?
I don't, unfortunately. But if you have a budget we can work something out.
HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO GET A TATTOO?
18 years of age and older.
DO YOU TATTOO EVERY PART OF THE BODY?
I don't do inner fingers, side of hands and side of feet (check healed pics on Google)
I don't tattoo hands, necks and faces UNLESS you are covered in tattoos or you already have visible ones.
No matter what your reasons are I'm not comfortable doing it,
specially if you're young and you haven't figured out your future yet.
There's still lots of discrimination out there, trust me I know ;)
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IF I WANT MY GENITALS TATTOOED AND HOW'S THE PROCESS?
Simply drop me an e-mail (email@example.com) to discuss your ideas
some reference pictures are welcome as they always help.
Depending on the design we can discuss your ideas and book you in via email
if the project is intricate then a consultation in person is best!
All tattoos on private parts are done in a private room at the studio
in order to give the client more privacy.
CAN I HAVE A NAME TATTOOED ON ME?
I usually don't feel comfortable tattooing a partner's name.
Your kid's name, your parent's name, your pet's name etc are more than welcome!
DO YOU TATTOO EVERY STYLE?
I try to focus on watercolour, (brutal) blackwork, sketchy and a little bit of traditional tattoos.
But I'm up for doing other styles except realism, tribals and delicate fineline.
WILL I BE ABLE TO SEE THE DESING?
It depends on how busy I am and on the design itself
I get drawings ready on a day-to-day basis as it works best for me
and I prioritise appointments i.e. Todays' Thursday, I'll get ready for this Saturday not for next Friday
Your design will be ready and shown to you on the day of the tattoo
If I need any help with something I will let you know in advance
and we can do small changes then to also avoid excessive emailing back and forth.
DOES IT HURT?
Of course it does :) you'll be fine though!
DO YOU USE ANY NUMBING CREAM?
I personally prefer not to.
Some numbing creams can be a b*tch to the skin, during and after the tattoo.
Making it hard for me to work on the skin and making it harder for it to heal.
Please be honest with me and don't show up wearing numbing cream without telling me
(especially if you're a first time client and I don't know your skin yet)
I will refuse to see you and the deposit will be lost.
CAN YOU PUT THE STENCIL ON AND LEAVE IT FOR A FEW DAYS SO I'LL GET USED TO IT?
Oh hell to the no :)
WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE THE TATTOO?
Make sure you're well rested, have a nice meal before the tattoo
Avoid alcohol and other drugs
(I hate the smell of weed so please avoid smoking it as I will definitely won't tattoo you if you're high)
Please avoid putting fake tan on the area, also avoid waxing it or shaving it before the session, trimming with clippers is fine, I'd honestly appreciate that.
Bring some water or sugary drinks and snacks because you're gonna be hungry.
A book or some music will help you not getting bored during the tattoo.
WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER THE TATTOO?
I will explain you everything on the day and will give you an aftercare form with all the instructions.
DO YOU TATTOO FROM HOME OR DO HOME VISITS?
I'm highly against home tattooing so please let's keep it professional.
SHOULD I BUY ANY NAPPY RUSH CREAM BEFORE THE TATTOO?
PLEASE DON'T. AVOID NAPPY RUSH CREAMS I.E. BEPANTHEN AND SUDOCREAM.
STAY AWAY FROM ANTISEPTIC CREAMS AND NON-TATTOO RELATED OINTMENTS.
WHAT AFTERCARE DO YOU RECCOMEND?
I depends on the tattoo/area
most of the times I use second skin.
I will explain it all on the day and
you'll be given an aftercare form at the end of the session!
P.S. please don't buy creams in advance, unless you have a favourite one of course.
WHAT'S A VEGAN TATTOO?
please read this paragraph from The Vegan Society website:
" Although many good quality tattoo inks are now vegan-friendly, some inks still contain ingredients that are animal derived. Glycerine derived from animal fats is often used as a stabiliser, sometimes alongside gelatine, and bone char can be found in black inks to provide an increased pigment. The main issue, however, stems from the equipment and aftercare products used within the tattoo process, with stencil papers often made with lanolin, the substance derived from a sheep’s wool. Many recommended aftercare products, and even disposable razors provided by the tattoo studio also aren’t vegan, as animal derived glycerine can be found in razor strips and aftercare soaps. Meanwhile, balms often contain lanolin or beeswax. The good news, however, is that there are plenty of vegan-friendly alternatives, that are affordable and easily accessible. "
Thanks for reading this section
Hopefully I didn't sound too strict
but I'd rather be strict and professional than showing no interest in what I do
and not caring about my work.
