General Tattoo Information ( Please check out the individual FAQ )
How do I protect my tattoos/permanent makeup long term?
Sunscreen, sunscreen and sunscreen! Did we mention using sunscreen? It's important to protect your ink from the sun!
Drink plenty of water. It leaves your skin plump and happy which means your tattoo will look the same!
Sun protective clothing is a great option as well when you are going to be exposed for long periods of time.
Keep your skin moisturized and gently exfoliated with gentle products. Dry skin can leave tattoos looking blurred or faded. Please make sure to avoid chemical peels, acids, Retinols, or Retin-A use in the procedure area.
What is the process of getting a body art tattoo?
Each of our artists have different wait times, and availability based on how they work best. CHECK OUT THEIR INDIVIDUAL FACTS PAGE. We understand you are excited, we try to get everyone in as soon as our schedules allow.
How much does getting a body art tattoo cost?
Tattoos are with you for a lifetime, and should be thoughtout and invested into. Cheap tattooes are not good, and good tattoos should not be cheap.
I just want to talk to someone really quick!
Our artists work long hours in sanitary conditions, in gloves one-on-one with clients, making it difficult to answer the phone on demand. Please call 502.324.3371 in cases of emergency or book a phone call online.
