How much is the tattoo going to cost?
The price of your tattoo will vary depending on the size and how long it takes. Yes, you can find a friend who will tattoo you for a much cheaper price, but in the end you will just end up at a shop covering it up. You are paying for a piece of art you will wear forever, so be willing to pay for the quality of your tattoo.
Does getting a tattoo hurt?
Everyone has different levels of pain tolerance, but in short the answer is yes. However, enduring the pain is worth it when you leave the studio with a work of art.
Can I use some kind of numbing cream?
Products like this are not recommended. They have to be applied, then you have to wait for the cream to kick in. The process becomes timely, and the pain is a shock to your body when it does wear off.
What is the best time of year to get a tattoo?
You can get a tattoo any time of the year and have it heal just fine, but in the summer your skin will take more abuse from activities like swimming, tanning, and just being in the sun more often. Because of this, the winter will generally be a time where the tattoo will heal best.
Is it OK to get a tattoo if I am sick?
Getting a tattoo when you are not at your best is not recommended. With your immune system busy battling other germs in your body, it can not focus everything on healing your tattoo, so the process will become much longer. For the wellness of the staff, it is also recommended you call and reschedule if you are sick, and we will gladly accommodate you with a new day and time.
