Drink plenty of water
It’s important to stay hydrated during the process and you should drink plenty of water beforehand.
Being well hydrated is always a good idea but in this particular case, it helps you last longer and heal quicker afterwards.
Keep your skin moisturized
Obviously don’t slather yourself in moisturizer right before your tattoo but it’s definitely a good idea to moisturize your skin leading up to the day before you go in.
Shave the area
This helps speed up the process specially if you have a lot of hair in that area. Be careful not to cut yourself though as this could mean a cancellation of your appointment! We will always do a final shave if need be in the studio.
Sleep well the night before
Don’t pull an all nighter and go out to a concert and drinks loads the night before! Get solid sleep the night before,
being well rested will make you less twitchy and you’ll end up with cleaner (and straighter!) lines.
Make sure you eat a good hearty meal before your appointment. Your body is going to need the energy, especially when your instinct is going to be to tense up during the painful parts of the tattoo.
Wear the right clothing
If your getting you leg tattooed don't come in wearing pants. Most of the fine line tattoos are relatively small so come in with clothing you are most confident in as we will take a photo of you tattoo to publish on our social media and web site.
Take something to entertain yourself
Bring your phone and a charger, loaded up with Netflix or something to watch during the session to distract yourself.
Final tattoo payment
We prefer you make your final payment by way of cash, however we do also provide a secure debit card checkout here in the studio for a small processing fee of $9.00.
