How long can I expect the tattoo to last?

Contrary to popular belief it is recommended to touch up your tattoo as needed.

 

Can I drink before my tattoo?

No. This is not advisable for many reasons, other then then obvious difficulties of tattooing a drunk person, aka if you arrive at your tattoo appointment drunk or consumed alcohol within 24 hours the artist will refuse to tattoo you. The main reason is that alcohol thins your blood considerably. In turn this causes excessive bleeding while you are having the tattoo, which not only makes it difficult for the artist, but will have the effect of 'washing out' the ink as it is being placed. This makes the process much longer and can produce poor results.

Avoid alcohol at least 24 hours prior to your appointments.

 

Can I get a tattoo if I'm pregnant?

No, you should not get tattoos when you are pregnant, even when breastfeeding.

 

Can I get a tattoo with a new artist if I've previously went elsewhere?

Absolutely, we will require a consultation to discuss tattoo options.
