Does It Hurt?

This is number one in our Frequently Asked Questions simply because it is surprisingly just that. The simple answer is, yes it does. However, not as much as some people might like you to believe, as after a short period of time your body’s natural pain-killers (endorphins), kick in and make things much more manageable. How long these endorphins last usually defines your natural ‘limit’ as to how long a tattoo session you can handle (usually between 2-3 hours), after this time you will tend to become very uncomfortable.The pain of a tattoo is often likened to a mild burning sensation or a cat scratch. However, the real factor as to how much a tattoo hurts is really down to where you intend to get it. Any area directly over bone will be particularly sensitive; this includes ribs, feet, hands, head, and pelvis to name a few. Add to this the number of nerve endings in an area and this defines the most painful places. If you are looking for a less painful spot, then you should consider a less sensitive area protected by a large muscle; such as the fore-arm, upper-arm, shoulder, calf and thigh. That being said, everyone’s pain threshold varies, so there are no hard and fast answers to this question.

Can I Have A Drink Before I Get Tattooed?

It is illegal and ill-advised to get tattooed while under the influence of alcohol. Contrary to popular belief, alcohol will not make your experience any better. It makes the process more difficult for you as well as the artist and raises the risk of complications. Other drugs, including Marijuana, can also have a negative impact on the process.

Can I Get Tattooed While Pregnant Or Breast-feeding?

No. Your body is going through tremendous changes and stress. Getting tattooed while pregnant or breast-feeding can negatively impact either/or your health and that of your baby. It’s simply not worth the risk.

Should I Eat Before I Get Tattooed?

It is ideal to eat a healthy portioned meal within four hours of being tattooed. You don’t want to be starving or stuffed. Having stable blood sugar bolsters your immune system and helps the body deal with the fluctuation of endorphins, which are released during the tattoo process. For long tattoo sessions bring some fruit and trail mix. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and aspirin.

Can We Bring Children Into The Shop?

For the safety of your children and the sanity of our studio we ask that you kindly keep your well-behaved children fully under your control and out of trouble at all times. When it is time for your tattoo we strongly encourage you to get a babysitter. The artist is trying to concentrate and you and the other clients are trying to relax. At the very least, you will need to bring an additional adult to supervise and monitor the child while you are getting tattooed. Particular artists may have greater sensitivity to children in the station. We reserve the right to reschedule you at your own expense if the child poses a problem.

Can You Tattoo Over A Scar?

It depends on the severity and maturity of the scar. This is judged on a case-by-case basis; in general, a scar should be at least one year old. Come in to discuss your options.

What Is The Most Painful Place To Be Tattooed?

Again, pain is subjective and varies from person to person. Do not choose an area or a size based on the pain factor. The beauty of the tattoo will last for decades longer than the brief period of discomfort it takes to complete the tattoo.

What Area Of The Body Is Hardest To Heal?

Blood flow is an integral part of the healing process so the closer to the heart the better the healing. Healing of the lower legs and feet can take longer based on that fact. Another significant factor in healing is friction. Tattoos on the torso where clothing constricts and where pivotal movement is constant can lead to longer heal times and complications. Areas of the body with natural seams, like elbows and knees can have a harder time healing as well.

Is It Normal For My New Tattoo To Scab?

Scabbing, flaking, peeling, dryness and a hazy appearance are all natural parts of the healing process. However, severe scabs that are deep and thick may indicate a need to change your aftercare routine and should be addressed with your tattoo artist.

Can I Tan?

Stay out of the sun and tanning booths, especially during the healing process. Any form of tanning can and will damage and fade a tattoo. If you are a sun worshiper, we recommend a SPF 50+ sun block for life.

What If I Don't Like It?

Tattoo removal is still a painful, expensive and imperfect process. It is best to circumvent the need for tattoo removal by choosing your artist and design wisely and then taking care of it diligently. Remember, a little extra time planning will save a lot of time regretting. You want to be sure you are getting a tattoo that you will be happy with for the rest of your life. If even with the best of planning and intentions the end result is still not perfect come back to the studio to discuss your options.

What about health and safety issues?

You can rest assured that your tattoo will be done with one-time use only equipment and sanitary conditions and practises that exceed government requirements. The health department (GGD) inspects our studio annually. All of our supplies come from reputable manufacturers (Tattooland, Killer Ink, Barber DTS) and we make sure they are used well before their expiration dates.

How should I prepare for my tattoo session?

We recommend that you wear loose, comfortable clothing to make sure that nothing will be rubbing against your fresh tattoo. Make sure you have plenty of time, and don’t have to rush off to do something after your session. The artist will take whatever time is needed to bring your tattoo to life on your body. You certainly don’t want to rush that process. Don’t drink alcohol or take any medication that will thin out your blood 24 hours before your tattoo.

How do I know my tattoo is healed?

The best answer is, your body will tell you. You will instinctively know. Your tattoo will be a part of your skin and you will no longer “feel” that it’s healing. If you are unsure, give it a few extra days before you resume all the activities you held off during healing.

How do I choose a tattoo design?

For those that just KNOW what they want, this is easy. For others, it can be a longer process. Do some research, find images that you gravitate towards, save those and over time you will find that these images usually have a similar thread – be it subject or style or both.Conversely, if you like a whole bunch of different things, maybe more thought is needed or you really want more than one tattoo. After your research, the best thing is to have a consultation. In your research, some studios must stand out to you, go to those ones and have a chat with them about your ideas. If the studio is any good, they will give you valuable feedback and you will be that much closer to figuring out a design. Working with your tattoo artist is one of the most important parts of choosing a tattoo design.
