How do I come up with a good idea for a tattoo?
If this is your first tattoo, it is good to take a considerable amount of time to think about your design and why you want the tattoo. A tattoo is a very personal luxury and one must fully understand and become aware of the commitment that it comes with. Study different styles of tattoos and compile some references to be presented to your chosen Tattoo Artist. Your artist will provide you with their professional insight in regards to placement based off of the tattoo design.
What is the average cost of a tattoo?
Depending on your design, the tattoo will be charged either by an hourly rate or a standard flat rate. Artists hourly rates range from $180-$220. There is a minimum shop rate of $120 for the set up cost.
What are common health and safety concerns?
Our studio is both clean, organized and safe. We pass our BodySafe Board of Health requirements every year with an “Excellent” score. Needles are all fully disposable and all stations are disinfected and barrier taped off to minimize the chances of cross contamination.
What should I do to be prepared for my tattoo?
Once a design has been created and you are booked in for your tattoo session, mentally prepare yourself for the commitment to the modification. Lotioning the canvas area will help soften the skin to prepare for the day of your tattoo. Make sure to get a good night's sleep so that your body is well rested for the trauma. Being both mentally and physically prepared is important to ensure a smooth session. Don’t show up on the day of your appointment after a night out.
What are some suggested methods for taking care of my tattoo?
Once your tattoo is complete your body will begin to heal itself.
