Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to leave a deposit for you to design my tattoo?
Will my tattoo hurt?
If all else fails, we can use topical numbing anaesthetic upon request at a rate of £5-10 per hour (depending on frequency of use during the procedure).
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?
Do NOT drink alchohol the night or morning before you appointment. Forget about dutch courage! Not only will it NOT numb the pain, alchohol thins the blood so you WILL bleed like something out of SAW. Asprin is another no-go, it's another blood thinner!
Try and have somehting light to eat before you appointment, a sugary drink and chocolate will help to keep your blood sugar up.
I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I WANT - CAN YOU HELP?
Yes! Contact us and make a consultation appointment with one of our artists. If you have any ideas, bring along some reference material which will help explain the look you are after. We will be able to advise if your ideas will suite your body and if not willsuggest other placements or designs. If you really have NO idea what you want but just want something amazing then leaving the design up to the artist will result in a rocking tattoo!
WHERE TO GO?
If you're after an amazing, orginal tattoo then you are already in the right place! However, if you do choose to go elsewhere then please make sure you check out the below basics:
We have all heard of a 'friend of a friend' who does pretty cheap tattoos from his/her house. Generally these people will not have insurance or registration so BE CAREFUL. If you are determinded to go ahead then you have to ensure that your tattooist is wearing gloves and you see that you a getting a new needle. Don't worry too much if this tattoo does not go as well as you would have expected. Our artists do amazing cover-ups!
