Here are some every day questions I'm asked for tattooing.

If you can't find what your looking for drop us an email.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

  • How old do I need to be to get a tattoo?
    You must be a least 18 years of age or older to get tattooed. Please do not be offended if I ask for photographic ID. The laws on tattooing are quite strict and tattooing a person who is under 18 is treated as assault on a minor. Having your parents consent does not change the fact that you must be 18 to legally get tattooed in the U.K
  • Can you help with the design of my tattoo?
    Every tattoo is designed on an individual basis, meaning that no two customers will have exactly the same design unless specifically requested to be matching. To achieve this it is important that you let me know as much information as possible or come see me at the studio for a chat. I have access to thousands of images online and will sit with you for as long as you need, showing you various options for design, placement, size and colours. Your chosen tattoo design will represent me as an artist, so it is important to me that you have a piece of art that you love and proud of and a design that will still look great in years to come.
  • Do I need to pay a deposit?
    Every tattoo will require a deposit, this is non refundable and is to hold your booked date and time and to cover the preparation of your design as well. A minimum of 7 days is needed to change or cancel any tattoo appointment.
  • Do tattoos hurt?
    Yes and No. Some people compare the feeling of being tattooed to a scratch. Some find it more painful than others and some actually enjoy the process. In general our first tattoos are usually the easiest. Most people tend to fear the worst and are relieved when they realise it is no where near as bad as they they expected. The bodies own defence systems produce endorphins that help us deal with the pain and some clients find the process pleasurable. Others hate it, but come back again and again, simply because they love the finished work of art.
  • Do you so cover ups?
    With some creativity, it is possible to put a new tattoo over an older one, as is often the case when a relationship ends, and the client wants their partners name removed. The new tattoo will often have to be larger, and darker, but it is still possible to create a wonderful piece of artwork, over an existing tattoo that no longer serves it purpose, or was not applied properly to begin with.
  • Can I drink the night before a tattoo?
    There is a no alcohol or drugs policy in the studio. While the process of tattooing does make you bleed (no more than a surface scratch) alcohol and many painkillers thin the blood, meaning that you can bleed more and can result in a loss of ink. Excessive alcohol the night before will affect the tattoo process. The more ink you lose, the more must be pushed back into the tattoo, and so you find that the tattoo takes longer, and may not heal as well as it should.
  • How safe is it getting a tattoo?
    When you choose a professional artist like myself, your health and safety is my utmost priority. The moment you step into the studio you will see how serious I am about cleanliness. I use only single use pre-sterilised needles which are disposed of after every client, as well as sterilised pigments in single use pots. My hygiene procedures exceed the requirements of the relevant health authorities and all I have received thorough training on procedures to maintain a sterile environment, so you’re in good hands. If you have any questions regarding my hygiene procedures or your safety, please don’t hesitate to ask.
