How do I book an appointment?
1. Fill out the tattoo request form on the CONTACT page. Send some reference pictures if necessary to firstname.lastname@example.org. Giving full freedom with a design will be appreciated the most.
2. If I like your ideas/description, I'll tell you how many hours the tattoo can take and the nearest date to book.
3. If the price and available dates are suitable for you, I will send you a password to make a deposit. Once the deposit is made, you will receive a confirmation link.
4. The design will be seen on the day or arranged to be seen prior on request.
Will you redraw the design if I'm not satisfied with it?
I will not redraw the design. I will draw what I think will look best and I will always give my best. If you're not satisfied, the appointment will be canceled.
What is your waiting time?
As I'm selective with my work, your waiting time will mostly depend directly on your ideas and wishes.
What's about the design? How much is it?
The design is free. I use your description only as a base for a sketch, then i'm free to use all of my artistic expression. If unsatisfied with the design, it will become available for someone else to get tattooed.
Do you only work in your style?
Do you do home sittings?
No. I only do sessions at the studio.
How do I look after my new tattoo?
Remove your dressing (clingfilm) 2-4 hours after being tattooed. Wash with warm soapy water and pat dry with a clean piece of kitchen roll. Do not redress your tattoo unless you have been instructed to. Leave your tattoo clean and dry for the next 24 hours.
The next day, you may use a suggest aftercare cream or Aqueous cream. (No alcohol or perfumed lotions)
I highly recommend staying away from vaseline and petroleum jelly. It is VERY IMPORTANT to only use a very tiny amount of cream that you lightly rub into a thin, “barely there” layer over the tattoo. Using too much cream can over saturate the tattoo and cause excess scabbing or scabs to come off prematurely. The less the better.
Wash your tattoo every morning and night. If your tattoo is in a hard to reach area, have a friend assist you, just make sure they wash their hands thoroughly before they do so. If you do not keep your tattoo clean, you run the risk of both infection and excess scabbing which could result in poor healing. During these first few days, depending on where your tattoo is located the tattoo may be prone to swelling, using a bag of ice, elevating the tattooed area, and taking ibuprofen can help reduce the swelling.
Around the 3-5th day, you should notice your tattoo has formed a thin, hard layer, which will begin to peel. The peeling is similar to that of a sunburn peeling, only the skin will come off, this is normal. At this stage in the healing process you can continue to use a non-scented lotion (eg. E45, Aqueous cream.)
