FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What You Need to Know
DOES GETTING A TATTOO HURT?
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO SESSION?
Make sure you are well rested, well hydrated, and have eaten recently. Aside from that, take a shower, charge your phone or tablet up to full, and don’t bring in your 50 closest friends (1-2 are fine).
WHEN SHOULD I NOT GET TATTOOED?
You should not get tattooed when you are:
When you don’t know what you want
When you can’t afford it
When you’re sunburned
When you haven’t showered
When you have your kids with you
If you don’t have an ID
When you’ve been told by an expert that your idea is bad
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL AFTER A TATTOO?
The majority of your new tattoos healing process will be done within the first two weeks. However, the skin is still working to heal and you need to plan on a 5-6 weeks for your skin to be back to its previous state
WHY DO TATTOOS START TO ITCH WHILE HEALING?
As the skin rejuvenates itself, usually about a week after the tattoo was done, the itch sets in. This is 100% normal. A good healing cream will help immensely with this but DO NOT SCRATCH IT! If the cream isn’t helping, run it under cold water for a few moments and you should be itch free.
