FAQ

HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?

Send a detailed email with a description of the design, some photo reference, and your preferred dates to schedule. This will enable us to process your request quickly and efficiently. (Sending the email does not guarantee you an appointment)

WHY DO YOU REQUIRE DEPOSITS?

I often have hours of work in drawing and preparing for a tattoo before you sit down in my chair. Deposits help to ensure you make it to your appointment and that I haven’t done hours of work for nothing.

WILL IT HURT?

 

A tattoo is probably a 3/10. The best comparison would be to getting a scratch on a sunburn or to having someone draw on you with a ball-point pen on a sunburn. It doesn’t feel good, but it’s more of an intermittent irritation than a constant pain. Remember, a tattoo has more in common with an abrasion than it does with a hypodermic needle shot from the doctor.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO SESSION?

Make sure you are well rested, well hydrated, and have eaten recently. Aside from that, take a shower, charge your phone or tablet up to full, and don’t bring in your 50 closest friends (1-2 are fine).

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY TATTOO SESSION?

It’s more important to be comfortable than to be fashionable. Looser is better than tighter, and keep in mind you want to be able to cover up certain places that might show, depending on where you're getting your tattoo.

HOW LONG DOES A TATTOO TAKE TO HEAL AND WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THAT TIME?

A brand new tattoo will feel like a sunburn during the first day or two. The tattoo may form a layer of dry skin or lightly scab within a few days- this is normal. Do not try to remove any scabs or dry skin by picking at it or scrubbing in the shower- let your tattoo heal by itself! You should be mostly healed within about 2 weeks. However, the layer underneath can take up to 6 months to fully bounce back to normal.
