ETHICS and PROCESS – some points you need to know:

  • Sufficient rest and sleep a day prior to the tattoo process.  You need to have a fit physical condition.
  • The tattoo studio is FREE from alcohol, mariyuana or other prohibited drugs and substances.
  • If you are under any influenced of the substances mentioned in point 2, do re-schedule your appointment until you are fully sober!
  • Do not be under alcohol influence or other prohibited drugs and substance minimal 48 hours prior to tattooing.  These substances will only dilute your blood.  You will be exerting blood during tattooing and the tattoo ink will be difficult to interject into your dermis, which is the second layer of your epidermis.  Alcohol or other prohibited drugs and substances will not reduce your pain.
  • Sufficient food intake prior to the tattoo process.  Since it will take quite some time to do the tattoo, it will be important for you to have proper nutrition.  Bring with you some snack, bread, fruit, sweets or drinks.
  • It is recommended NOT to ask a group of your friends to accompany you to the tattoo shop.  The studio is not a place for your hang out. It is indeed a place to work in a hygienic area, which requires concentration and comfort.
  • It is advisable NOT to ask children to a tattoo studio without prior notice.  There are too many influence and substances which are not suitable for children, besides that it is a working place for adults.  Children can also be an influence to divert your attention, also the artists’ and other clients.
