About YOU and your TATTOO
First and foremost, we are excited to be working with you!
We want this to be a truly memorable experience for you, so please take the time to read the following information.
Preparing for your: Tattoo Do your research. Before your consult gather as much reference material as necessary.
If you require your tattoo to be drawn, be sure to give your artist ample time and some freedom to be creative! Creativity is fostered, not forced.
The area to be tattooed needs to be free of any type of trauma ie sunburn, scrapes, fresh scars or open wounds. If your skin is prone to dryness, it is a good idea to regularly moisturise leading up to the day of your appointment.
24 hours before your Tattoo…….. SLEEP: Get lots of rest. Tiredness leads to stress, stress makes your body less able to do the things it does naturally. Generally speaking, the less stressed your body is, the easier the whole process will be.
BOOZE: Be conscious of your alcohol consumption. Excessive drinking the night before your tattoo can lead to more bleeding during your tattoo, which makes for prolonged healing and possible colour loss in your tattoo.
FOOD: Eating is quintessential to being prepared for your tattoo. A well balanced meal should be eaten 1-2 hours prior to your tattoo appointment this includes drinking plenty of water to ensure proper hydration. Nutrition allows your body to regenerate the things it is using to cope with the tattoo process. Many artists recommend drinking orange juice prior to getting inked.
PERSONAL HYGIENE: Getting tattooed is a pretty intimate experience, don’t forget to shower.
POSSE: It’s fine to bring your well behaved friend to hold your hand, but more than one is an entourage and in most cases annoying and distracting for your tattooist.
