Frequently Asked Questions
 

Q: Does it hurt?

A: Only a little... compare it to a graze, sunburn or a cat scratch.

Q: Will it take long?

A: A small name may take 20 minutes, where as a large piece will be worked on in stages/sittings to suit you.

Q: How do we book?

A: If possible we prefer that you come in and book your appointment, where it is much easier to assess size, colour, time needed and will help us give you an accurate price, and will help make sure you get the design you want.

Q: Can i have a tattoo if i am under the age of 18 with parental consent?

A: No, it is illegal to tattoo anybody under the age of 18 with or without parental consent.

Q: How long does it take to heal?

A: The healing process varies from person to person, it could take between 2 and 4 weeks depending on how quickly your skin heals and if you follow the after care process.

Q: How long after a tattoo can i go in the sun / on a sun bed or swimming / in the sea?

A: We usually advise you not to expose your skin to things like this for approximately a month. Remember - when your skin grows back it is very sensitive, almost like baby skin and can burn or react to chlorine or salt water a lot quicker than your skin normally would.

Q: Can i bring my own design?

A: Yes. We have a specialised team of designers and the tattooists themselves who will work with you on your design whether it be just tweaking one you have drawn or found yourself or starting from scratch.

Q: Can i have a tattoo over a scar?

A: It is not a problem to tattoo over a scar as long is the scar is well healed, but obviously this depends on the severity of the scar tissue. It's best to pop in so we can take a look at it.
