TATTOO PREPARATION

  1. Be hydrated. Drink at least 1-2 liters of water a day before and after tattoo. Hydrated skin promotes healing.

  2. Lotion the area to be tattooed 1-2 times every day, the healthier your skin, the better results.

  3. Exfoliate the area 1-3 times weekly with a loofah or body scrub.

  4. Please a decent solid meal 1-2 hours BEFORE session. This is a massive workout for your body and it needs fuel for a big session. When you are hungry, pain management is much more difficult.

  5. No tanning, fake tanning, chemical peels, sunburns, major cuts or scrapes, in the area to be tattooed within a month prior to your session. Damaged skin won’t heal properly.​ Fake Tanning and Sun-baking are bad for your skin, tattoos and could cause skin cancer, please always avoid or use sunscreen religiously!

TATTOO DAY

  1. Get a good night sleep the night before. Please don’t party, getting tattooed hung-over is not fun for you or your artist. Alcohol also thins blood, please hold-off before and after! 

  2. Shave the entire area and surrounding areas to be tattooed, no worries your artist will clean up what you miss.

  3. Please do not the entire family or the crew unless they are also getting tattooed. The preference is you come alone. This will eliminate you and the artist from being distracted. You want 100% of the artist attention and ability instead of entertaining and worrying about your tag-along. DO NOT BRING ANY CHILDREN! 

  4. Bring drinks (suggest water), candy (good for blood sugar), fruit, snacks and/or a bagged lunch. You won’t have enough time during short breaks to leave, so bring it with you.

  5. Dress comfortably and appropriately, with accessible, dark colored clothing. Be prepared for it to be cold & warm.

  6. Also bring socks or flip flops to prevent walking around the studio barefoot during breaks, since most take off shoes during session for comfort and to prevent extra wear-and-tare on procedure chair.

  7. You are also invited to bring your own pillow for laying or sitting on during procedure. Wash when you get home.

  8. Bring some form of entertainment for yourself like an IPAD and headphones.

  9. Please do not schedule something immediately after your tattoo...in case we are running behind.

DURING TATTOO

  1. Please be aware of cross contamination. Do not touch your fresh tattoo during your session. Do not let anyone else touch your tattoo either!

  2. Be mindful and do not touch any other possibly contaminated areas. Wash hands before, during and after procedure. 

  3. Do not touch any of the tattoo equipment.

  4. Talking is fine during you session, but please do not talk with your hands, nod your head, or excessively move other body parts as this can cause the area being tattooed to move as well. Steady controlled zen-like breathing exercising will help keep you calm.
