HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR TATTOO

It’s really important that you, as a client, read all the information sent by your tattoo artist.

These are the most useful information to know before our session:
Aftercare Instructions
✦  Price List
Cancellation Policy

Here are some good tips for you to prepare for your tattoo session:

🍷 THAT’S A NO-NO!
Don’t drink alcohol or anything that thins your blood for at least 24 hours before your tattoo appointment. Also, no drugs!

💤 SLEEP
Sleep well the night before so you feel rested and comfortable when getting your tattoo.

🥗 EAT WELL
It’s important to eat a good meal before the tattoo session. Your body needs energy to deal with that extra pain and for you not to get dizzy, plus it can take longer than you expect. You can take some snacks if you want ; )

💦 STAY HYDRATED
Make sure you drink plenty of water a couple of weeks prior to getting inked. It helps with the tattooing process and healing. You can also moisturise your skin some days before the tattoo session, but avoid doing that on the appointment day.

🚿 SHOWER
You should take a shower and wear clean clothes to your appointment. This way you’ll help decreasing the risk of infection. Make sure your armpits and feet are not smelly, as the tattoo artist will be really close to you during the tattoo session ^^

Extra tip: avoid wearing perfume as people in the studio might have allergies.

👚 CHOOSE THE RIGHT CLOTHES
Avoid wearing new or bright clothes, as they can get ink stains. You might also want to wear comfortable clothes and choose the ones that give good access to the part of your body that will get tattooed. For example loose pants or a dress for a tattoo on the leg is a good way to go!

🏋️‍♀️ AVOID EXERCISING
Avoid exercising on the same day of your tattoo to prevent swelling or soreness. Also, your body needs all the energy to heal your tattoo.

💆‍♀️ AVOID SKIN TREATMENTS
Avoid skin treatments in the area to be tattooed such as chemical peeling and fake tanning. You should also avoid intense tanning, sunburns, major cuts or scrapes.

🎬 ENTERTAINMENT
Relax and enjoy your session. You can take something to entertain yourself while getting tattooed. For example, if you are going for a big tattoo and know that you’ll spend some hours there, you can read a book or watch a movie on your phone, so don’t forget your charger ; )

☀️ Have in mind that, after your tattoo session, you should avoid sun, sauna and bathing for at least 4 weeks. Read more about the aftercare instructions.

That’s it!
Hope you can use those tips for your next tattoo session : )
See you!
