FAQs

HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
You can either send a detailed email or a PM on Facebook or Instagram with a description of the design, some photo reference and your preferred dates and location to schedule. This will enable me to process your request quickly and efficiently.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET A TATTOO?
You must be at least 18 years of age. Not only must you be 18, you have to prove it with a valid State or Federal Photo ID.
HOW MUCH WILL "X" COST?
Prices have a variety of factors including, like hourly rates, tattoo speed and demand. Final price is dependent on size, detail of the design, location on the body where it will be placed.
MY APPOINTMENT IS SOON, HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO?
I recommend that you eat well before the appointment, and remember to stay hydrated. If you start to feel woozy, have a soda. Sugar is important in this situation. It’s best not to party the night before because alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours. Blood also dilutes the pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Stay calm and cool, you’re in good hands. There’s nothing to stress over.
DO TATTOOS HURT?
Yes.
Everyone has a different pain threshold. Tattoos on the same part of the body on different people will have different levels of pain. However there are some common places where you will experience more pain than others.
HOW LONG DOES A TATTOO TAKE TO HEAL?
It takes three weeks to “heal,” but it takes months for the skin to fully regenerate. 
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW TATTOO?
Your bandage should be worn for 1 to 2 hours. Thoroughly wash your hands and dry them with a paper towel before removing the bandage. If you find that the bandage is stuck to your tattoo, try running the bandage under water. You DO NOT however, want to soak your fresh tattoo in ANY water to include but not limited to bathtubs, swimming pools, hot tubs, lakes, and ponds. These all have chemicals, dirt, and all kinds of nasties that can cause infection. Showers are fine-just NO SOAKING!

After washing the tattoo, pat it dry with a paper towel. DO NOT use a hand or bath towel. Towels can harbor bacteria. DO NOT re-bandage your tattoo. It needs to “breathe” and get air to heal properly.

Take a small amount of Tattoo Aftercare and gently rub it all of the way in. Your tattoo should have a slight sheen to it, meaning a very thin coat. Your tattoo and skin need to breath to heal properly and quickly. You should reapply 3-5 times daily depending on the size, location and condition of your skin. If it looks dried out, then put a small amount on.

Wash your tattoo once or twice a day for the duration of the healing time. Too much washing can wash away your body’s natural bacteria which helps your skin to heal. Washing the tattoo in the morning and at night before you go to bed is sufficient. For the first day, the tattoo will “ooze” clear plasma. This is completely normal.

Continue to use the above steps until your tattoo is completely healed. Healing time varies with each individual and the area that was tattooed.
