FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to pay a deposit to set up an appointment?
Yes. All appointments require prep work when it comes to designing a custom tattoo and in order to cover our preliminary designs and ensure your commitment to your tattoo appointment. We require a non-refundable $50 deposit that is applied to the final price of your tattoo the day of your appointment. All no call no shows will result in forfieting your entire deposit. If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment please call or email the studio BEFORE the time of you appointment to ensure that your deposit can be rolled over on to a new date and time.
How do I prepare for my tattoo?
Our reccomended prep for the day of your tattoo is simple. Be well rested, eat within 30 minutes to an hour before, and be well hydrated. It is NOT reccomended to come in unfed, hungover, tired, etc.
How do I take care of my tattoo?
Great question. This is our recommended aftercare procedure. If you have a plastic cling wrapping on your tattoo make sure you remove it from your tattoo within 2 hours. If you have a dermal wrap such as Dr. Derm, Saniderm, etc. you must follow the instructions according to the manufacturers directoins. Once your tattoo is uncovered, wash your hands before touching your tattoo, using an unscented antibacterial pump hand soap (we reccommend Dial Antibacterial hand soap) , take a few pumps in your hands and make a foam using warm water. Wash your tattoo gently in a circular motion. Pat dry with clean paper towels. Apply a thin layer of Salvation Tattoo Aftercare or Aquaphor on the tattoo making sure it is absorbed into the skin and is not too thick on the surface. For best results follow these instructions.
Will my tattoo hurt?
We get asked this question all the time and the answer is not a simple one. Pain is relative to each indivudal. What we can tell you is that typically softer skin like inner arms, thighs, back of the legs, ribs, tops of the feet, etc. are going to be more sensitive than other parts of your body. Regardless you are tough and can get through anything so a little bit of tattoo pain is totally worth the beautiful artwork at the end of the session.
