  • How should i prepare for my tattoo?
    We always reccomend eat a decent meal before your appointment, it's always good to have a good level of blood sugar, which is why we also recommend bringing a small bar of chocolate or a can of pop to your appointment as well to top up! Calories don't count on tattoo days ! The worst thing to do before you appointment is to drink alcohol the night before, it can thin your blood causeing you to bleed more while getting tattooed, this can slow the process down and become a not very enjoyable experience for yourself and us ! At any point we will always be here to help if you needed anything before hand or while you are at the shop, never be afraid to ask for a drink or a break ! We do ask that come alone to your appointments, as we do have limited space at the studio, Thank you.

  • What’s the most/least painful area to get tattooed?
    All tattoos hurt and everyone’s pain threshold varies greatly, so if your friend/cousin/mum has advised you to get an area tattooed because ‘it hardly hurt at all’ you should probably take their well-meaning advice with a pinch of salt as everyone’s experience varies greatly! Having said that there are some areas that most people find easier/tougher than others - most people manage quite well on their upper arms and its a general consensus that getting areas like the ribs tattooed is not very enjoyable at all… The most important thing to bear in mind when it comes to placement is to think carefully about how often you are going to want the tattoo on show - especially if you are fairly young and have not yet established your career path… while some employers are becoming more understanding about tattoos in the workplace, visible tattoos in public areas (ie; hands,neck) are best left alone until you have a clear idea what are going to do in life!
  • Do you need to see my I.D
    We will need to see I.D confirming that you are over the age of 18 and will take a copy of it for our records, we will accept passports, driver or provisional licenese. We do not accept photos of passports or driver licenese, we will need physicals to take a photo copy from, once we have taken a copy and you have been tattooed by us, we will not usually ask to see this again ! The copies will be used as I.D to be attached to your consent forms which we will ask you to fill on arrival. We will not tattoo anyone under the age of 18. No I.D no tattoo.
  • Can I get my hands/neck/face tattooed in your shop?
    These are pretty serious tattoos and not to be taken lightly as it can have possible impacts on your job or futures jobs and social everyday life ! We are happy to tattoo most ideas and placements but we will always have the right to refuse a tattoo for any reason at any time ! We are thinking morally and what we feel most comfortable doing, with your best interests and ours at mind !
  • Will you draw something up for me before I book in? I need to know if I’m going to love it before I can commit to making an appointment.
    We are a custom studio and as such draw up each design individually for each client, there is no extra charge for drawing time and we happy to make alterations to designs until the customer is happy. If you need to see your design prior to your appointment we will generally email it over to you the night before. If you are concerned that your design will not be just what you were after then the best course of action is to make sure you pop in and book in in person and have a good chat with your chosen artist to make sure you’re both on the same page - it can be very hard to get some things across via email/facebook messages. You can also phone up and book a consultation at a time when your chosen artist has time to talk to you properly and chat through all aspects of your tattoo design, there is no charge for this service either.The long and short of it is that we don’t have time to spend drawing designs up for people who may or may not decide to get the tattoo done or worse still, take it to the studio down the road who will assure you they’ll do it for half the price.
  • How does Laser treatment work on tattoos?
    Our laser produces a very high power in quick pulses. The light energy produced tends to pass through normally pigmented skin and is absorbed by the tattoo ink deep in the dermis layer and shattered into tiny particles which are evacuated from the body through normal immune response As the ink par-tides are removed, the tattoo begins to fade.
  • Is the tattoo removal laser dangerous?
    Tattoo removal lasers are very safe for use when used by a trained laser operator with proper safety equipment (goggles to protect the eyes). The radiation emitted by a tattoo removal laser is non-ionizing and carries no risk of cancer or other abnormal cell growth. The procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive.
  • What should I wear to get tattooed?
    Just think practically, if you are getting an upper arm tattoo don’t wear a tight t-shirt, wear a vest. If you’re a girl and getting your ribs tattooed, maybe consider a string bikini top as opposed to a bra.. Most importantly, wear comfortable, preferably loose,clothing (those skinny jeans may slide on perfectly in the morning but it’ll be a different story once you have a freshly tattooed, sore and swollen leg!) and make sure its nothing too special, tattoo ink does stain pretty permanently and chances are you will get ink on you somewhere, so don’t wear your best brand new white t-shirt! When it comes to modest, again, everyone varies enormously - some people are more than happy to let everything hang out whilst some seem as if they would prefer to get tattooed without removing any clothing! It sounds like stating the obvious but bear in mind than in order to tattoo an area of your skin we need to be able to have clear access to it! If you are nervous about exposing yourself in front of strangers then try not to worry too much, we do our very best to ensure everyone feels comfortable and have a screen in the studio for added privacy.If you have any concerns or questions then feel free to ask!
  • I’ve seen a tattoo online that I love, I have to have mine just like that one, can you copy it?"
    We can, but we won’t! Tattooing, like all art forms has a very cyclical nature - in other words, the same subjects/themes/ideas have in all likelihood been tattooed time and time again, its only each artist’s interpretation that makes each tattoo individual - and you should want your tattoo to be individual to you! Taking inspiration from tattoos you’ve seen on other people is absolutely fine (if anything, encouraged, as it gives a great idea of the direction/style you want to go in) but bear in mind you should only take inspiration and not look to directly copy someone else’s tattoo. Apart from anything else, it’s pretty disrespectful to both the original artist and the wearer of the tattoo just to rip it off completely. There are of course exceptions - if you’ve seen some script in a certain font that you really love then fine - or if there’s a classic ‘old-school’ flash design that’s been doing the rounds for years, but on the whole, try and aim to get a tattoo that is yours, not anyone else’s.
