Frequently Asked Questions

Does a tattoo hurt?

Pain is really relative. Everyone has a different tolerance for pain. And yes it does does hurt a bit. Just not that much. Getting a tattoo could be compared to a “hot scratching feeling” which is in most cases totally bearable. In any case please rest assured that all our tattoo artists are very gentle and we use very high quality products and needles that can somehow alleviate some discomfort. Last but not least, we also believe that a tattoo has to be “earned” and some pain is the price to pay to earn a new piece of beautiful bodyart on your body.

How much do you charge for a tattoo?

Tattoo pricing it’s usually somehow a complicated matter and it depends on a number of factors as the artists you choose, complexity, style, amount of colors, placement on your body and more. However we like to keep it simple and we work with a Name Your Price model. Click here for more info about our pricing.

Do you provide numbing creams?

No at the moment we don’t provide any numbing cream and for a number of reasons we also don’t recommend using them.

For both tattoos and piercings, a proper aftercare is as important as getting the right tattoo, by the right artist at the right place. Please follow the below guidlines to get the best possible results for your newly done tattoos and piercings.

Step 1

Remove dressing 2-3 hours.

When the tattoo is freshly made it seeps, caused by the puncturing of the skin during the tattoo procedure. The initial dressing on the tattoo is to catch the excess white blood cells and ink that leak from your skin, as well as protecting your new tattoo from dirt, oil, dust etc.. in the initial stages of healing.

Step 2

Wash your tattoo with lukewarm soapy water and pat dry with a clean towel.

When you first remove the dressing from your tattoo there will be a build up of excess ink and dried up white blood cells, it will look a bit gooey. Gently was this away with everyday soap and warm water. Don’t use a wash cloth or anything abrasive, gently pat dry. Do not rub as this will only aggravate the skin. It is important to only use a clean towel.

Step 3

Apply the recommended cream 2 – 3 times a day.

Apply a small amount of either Bapanthen or Palmers Coco Butter as to prevent drying and tightening of the skin. DO NOT USE Vaseline: This forms a barrier to the air and prolongs the healing. Creams such as Savlon have an additive containing yeast cells that can cause infections. Other medical products may contain Neosorin that can destroy the ink and cause irritation. DO NOT share your aftercare cream with another person, they may or may not be carrying an infection or bacteria that could harm you.

Step 4

A scab will form 1 – 3 days after the procedure.

Allow this to heal naturally, DO NOT pick or scratch the tattoo whilst healing. If damage is made to the scab it will promote bleeding which may draw the ink from the tattoo, causing patches of the ink to disappear.

Step 5

Keep your tattoo clean.

Avoid contact with dust. oil, dirt ect… If you work in a dirty environment make sure to protect your healing tattoo. Loose clothing is recommended to avoid irritation.

Step 6

DO NOT soak your healing tattoo.

You can shower your healing tattoo but DO NOT submerge in a bath as it can cause serious damage and prolong the healing time. DO NOT bath and swim for 2 – 3 weeks.

Step 7

Avoid direct sunlight.

All pigment (colour) is affected by light. Both sunlight and artificial light intense light can damage your tattoo and fade the pigment. DO NOT expose your healing tattoo to strong sunlight or sunbeds for at least 3 weeks. Once healed use a TOTAL SUN BLOCK (high factor) on the tattoo to avoid fading.

Step 8

Enjoy your tattoos for the rest of your life :-)!

Piercing Aftercare

No matter what type of piercing you get, the same best practices apply:

  • Wash your hands before touching your piercing for any reason.
  • Clean the piercing with either a saline solution, a fragrance-free antimicrobial soap, or both once or twice per day.
  • Rinse any soap from the piercing.
  • Gently dry the piercing with a clean, disposable paper towel or tissue. Avoid drying with cloth since it may carry germs or catch on the jewelry.

In order to keep piercings clean throughout the day, steer clear of:

  • Touching the piercing unless necessary.
  • Contact with bodily fluid including saliva.
  • Contact with open water, including lakes, rivers, pools, and hot tubs. Showers are better than baths since bathtubs can hold onto bacteria.
  • All makeup or beauty items including lotions, sprays, and powders.
  • Antibacterial ointments, as they can prevent the piercing from getting the air it needs to heal.

If you decide you don’t want your piercing, you can take out the jewelry. But this can interfere with the healing process. If you do take out your jewelry, be sure to keep cleaning the wound daily until it’s fully healed. ‌

Tips for sleeping. If you have an ear or facial piercing, put your pillow into a clean t-shirt, changing the side of the shirt from back to front and inside to out daily. This gives you a clean surface for your piercing. For body piercings, go for loose, comfortable clothes at night.
