If a bandage is applied, leave it on for one hour. Take it off and wash it thoroughly with a good, clean soap. ( Ivory, Dove or any other non-fragrance soap). Do not I use a washcloth or anything abrasive to wash it, just your hand. Pat, it dry with a clean paper towel and apply a small amount of non-fragrance lotion. (Lubriderm, Dove Aquaphor or Jergens). Rewash and reapply every four hours for one week. Do not use triple antibiotic ointment or Vaseline, or A&D ointments.
You are NOT allowed to soak it in water of any kind until your tattoo is fully healed. You can get it wet, just do not soak it. Make sure you do not get direct sun on your fresh tattoo. This means no tanning of any sort. If you are going to be somewhere that it could get dirty or in direct sunlight, cover it. You need to follow these directions until your tattoo is healed. Even after your tattoo is healed you need to put sunblock on it, doing so will keep your new investment looking good for years to come.
If you need a touch-up after your tattoo is healed within the first six months, it will be free of charge. If you need a touch up after that, there will be a charge based on what needs to be done.
Please follow these directions and your tattoo will look its best for years to come. If you have any more questions please call
(352) 683-9289. Do not listen to your friends or people who do not tattoo.
Q: The first and most asked question by far is, "Does it hurt?"
A: Of course it hurts!
Do you want me to say it does not?
The pain is an outside pain (irritation), not an inside one (A toothache).
"Anyone who wants a tattoo will be able to stand the pain."
NO, you do not need to be drunk to get a tattoo...
In fact, if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, any professional artist will refuse to tattoo you...
Q: Do you guys do piercing?"
A: Nope, strictly tattoos...
Q: Will hair still grow through my tattoo?
A: Yes, the skin will still be the same as before. If you have dark or long body hair it might obscure the tattoo if the tattoo is too small.
Q: Is it safe?
A: We use the same equipment (autoclave) that a hospital uses to sterilize our equipment. We also use disposable setups for each tattoo.
The instruments are individually wrapped and sterilized.
Q: Can I bring in my own design?
A: Yes, it can be anything you like, but it will need to be converted into a tattoo design. Some styles of artwork do not work well as a tattoo, but we use our years of experience to guide you with the selection of the artwork and style.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: It is impossible to quote a price without seeing a design. Custom tattooing costs according to the time involved. Larger and complex tattoos can cost thousands of dollars while smaller and simpler things cost less. How that works out for you
An average small tattoo cost about $100. There is a $50 dollar shop minimum.
Q: Should I eat before I get tattooed?
A: YES. It is ideal to eat within two hours of being tattooed. Please eat plenty of protein, and be well hydrated. Having stable blood sugar bolsters your immune system and helps the body deal with the fluctuation of endorphins, which are emitted during the tattoo process.
Q: How old must I be to get a tattoo?
A: You must be 18 years of age and have a picture ID issued by a government or state.
We do not tattoo minors with or without parental permission.
Q: How can I pay?
A: We accept cash, Master Charge, Visa,
traveler's checks and money orders.
We do not accept personal checks. (sorry)
