Does getting a tattoo hurt?
That depends on your pain tolerance. Some people will feel it far more than others. But, we’ve never had somebody that can’t sit through an entire tattoo. Focus on your breathing and relax and you’ll be fine.
Is your equipment sterile?
We discard our needles after every use. That means we only ever use a needle once and dispose of it responsibly to meet regulations. All instruments are cleaned ultrasonically, then soaked in a chemical sterilising bath and placed into an autoclave. This kills off all bacteria and viruses. Disposable ink caps are used and discarded after each use.
We use only the highest quality materials.
Are there any rules?
We are do not offer our services to under 18’s. No exceptions. Please bring your ID or drivers so that we can confirm your age.
Before your tattoo:
- No energy drinks, alcohol or drugs before or directly after you get tattooed.
- Don’t apply topical numbing cream to the area as it can affect your skin cells.
- Don’t get the area sunburnt and your skin can’t be peeling.
- It is very important that you eat a meal before you get tattooed
- Bring a coke or some sweets to keep your blood sugar levels up.
After your tattoo:
Your tattoo will be covered up for a minimum of 6hrs after which you will take the dressing off and wash really well with warm soapy water, using your hand only, pat dry with a clean towel and apply a small amount of dettol cream. Apply the dettol cream twice daily each day for two weeks while the tattoo heals. NO sun, sea or swimming pools for a minimum of two weeks during healing.
