Tattoo : Q & A
What designs can I choose?
Plenty! Try browsing some web sites, or google “free tattoo designs”. We also have albums of designs that you can look through.
How much does it hurt to get a tattoo?
This is what most people really want to know! Actually, getting a tattoo is not very painful now because with modern tattoo equipment, the
needles go shallow and prick quickly. Generally speaking, tattooing over boney areas hurt more, while fleshy area won’t hurt much.
Is it safe to get a tattoo?
If new needles are used for each and every customer, it is very safe. We will set your mind at ease by showing you the unopened package of
needles we will be using before the tattooing begins. After your tattoo is finished, we will dispose of the needles.
How much does it cost?
Tattoo prices vary according to the size and tattoo designs. A large, complex design will cost more than a small, simple one. Prices vary, so
come and speak with our artists, and bring your own design if you want, we will be able to quote you a price then.
When should I not get a tattoo?
You shouldn’t get a tattoo if you’re drunk or high. Or if you’re sick, wait till you get better.
Piercing : Q & A
What type of metal must you wear for a new piercing?
We only use grade 23 Titanium or 316L Surgical Stainless Steel. They have been certified safe for permanent implantation by international
medical bodies. Your piercing will heal at a substantially faster rate with these.
Is it painful?
Piercing stings, like a quick jab. Being prepared and calm is important. Eat well beforehand and bring a sugary drink with you. This will counter
balance the effects of shock as most people work themselves up expecting a serious amount of pain and finding it so easy after the piercing,
tend to go into shock.
How long does a piercing take to heal?
Healing times will vary for each person. Many factors can affect the healing process. Generally, a good choice of metal (e.g. Titanium), good
and careful aftercare, and proper personal hygiene certainly help.
What should I use to clean my piercing?
We will provide you detailed advice on aftercare specific to your piercing.
We recommend using Saline Solution, NOT alcohol, to clean your piercing. Disinfectants are often too strong or harsh on a healthy piercing,
and sometimes cause aggravation. If you suspect you have an infection you should come and consult your piercer.
How can I prevent infection?
Infections are prevented with proper care and attention to your piercing. Even the best material like Titanium can’t prevent you getting an
infection if your piercing is always being aggravated or rarely cleaned.
