Here are some things you need to know in order to get the best out of your tattoo session:
Make sure you get enough rest - When your body is well rested and relaxed, the tattooing process is much more comfortable for you.
Take extra care of yourself - Your body will heal better when it only has to focus on healing your tattoo. If you are feeling run down, make sure you keep well hydrated, take some Vitamin C, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables and get lots of sleep. We will not tattoo you if you are unwell as it may put too much stress on your system.
Be sun smart - We will not tattoo sunburned areas of skin. Make sure you keep any area about to be tattooed out of the sun to ensure that your skin is as healthy as possible for tattooing.
If, for any reason, you are unable to make it to your appointment, please contact us as soon as possible. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment if you give us at least 2 full working days' notice. (See our deposit policy)

Eat well - Sitting for a tattoo takes a surprising amount of energy.
Try not to plan anything strenuous (physically and mentally) right after you tattoo session – It is always best to plan to have some rest right after your session. Taking it easy the first couple of days afterwards in order to guide your recovery in the best direction.
