FAQs

BEFORE YOU GET TATTOOED

  1. It’s always important to get tattooed in good health and to let your artist know of any health issues and/or medications that could complicate the tattoo and healing process. This is especially important regarding any blood thinning or antibiotic medications.
  2. If you are pregnant or nursing, It is strongly advised that you do not get tattooed as the process can be potentially traumatic for the baby.
  3. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present.
  4. DO NOT be under the influence of drugs or alcohol and DO NOT use drugs or alcohol 2-3 days prior to your appointment.
  5. Skin needs to be supple and have enough moisture in order for the best tattoo results. If you are prone to dry skin, we strongly suggest applying a body moisturizer every day for a week prior to your appointment. Make sure you drink enough water too.

TATTOO AFTER CARE

Most important thing to remember:
Your body heals your tattoo, not the aftercare ointment!

Day of getting your tattoo:

  • Wash gently with soap and water, pat dry and apply NO ointment.
  • If you like, you are welcome to drink an anti-inflammatory to help with the redness and swelling

Day 1-3 after getting the tattoo:

  • Wash gently with soap and water, pat dry and apply NO ointment.

Day 4-7 after getting tattoo:

  • Wash gently with soap and water, pat dry and apply NO ointment.
  • After the tattoo is completely dry, apply a very thin layer of Coconut oil and rub it into your skin.
  • There should NOT be a layer of oil on your tattoo after applying the oil. Only apply twice a day. Rub it in.

After day 7:

  • Wash with soap and water, twice a day.
  • Apply a thin layer of coconut oil if you feel it's needed.
  • By this time your tattoo is not an open wound anymore and you can relax.
  • Don't pick any scabs off or scratch if your tattoo itches.

Please note:

  • Avoid any sunburn or tanning forever after getting your tattoo.
  • Avoid submerging your new tattoo for too long underwater.
  • The darker your skin tone is the less vibrant your tattoo will look.
  • Touch-ups can be discussed in the consultation, price will vary for each tattoo.
  • A touch up can only be done after about 6 weeks.

Our touch up policy has changed. A free touch-up is no longer included. Touch-ups for small-medium tattoos will coast between R100-R300. For larger tattoos expect the touch up to cost 10-30% of the original cost of the tattoo. Touch-ups can only be done 6-8 weeks after getting your tattoo.
