Designing and applying a tattoo is normally a wonderfully creative process. And if we follow a few small rules and guidelines you will get the best results while keeping everybody healthy and safe!




MINIMUM 18 YEARS


Tattoo from 18 years. Please take your I.D. when you come to make an appointment.




MAKING AN APPOINTMENT


All consultation and tattooing is done by appointment only. Use the form to send me an email, or message me on facebook, instagram, whatsapp, SMS, phone to discuss your tattoo.

The process usually goes as follows:

  • You send a message with a basic description of what you’re looking for: type of tattoo, elements you want to include, approx. size, location on body etc. and any other information, references or questions you have.
  • If you want we can arrange a short face-2-face to discuss before making any agreement. After that I’ll provide an approximate price-range based on your description.
  • If you’re happy with the price-range and agree then I will usually charge a deposit which allows me to begin the design-work (unless it’s a small piece or something like standard lettering that doesn’t require much design-work). This deposit will be discounted from the final cost of the tattoo.
  • I’ll share the design with you as well as a final quote. (This is the time to request any final changes!)
  • Then we schedule the tattoo appointment (multiple required for larger pieces).

To make an appointment, you come to the studio. We then discuss how we are going to approach things (in terms of design) and how many sessions will be needed. If you cannot come by, you can send an e-mail with the global info. You will receive a response as soon as possible with a number of dates where there would be room for you. If the date is set on both sides, a deposit will be requested to confirm the appointment. After confirming the appointment, you have to wait for the moment when you get your tattoo. You can request the design 5 working days in advance by e-mail (or by coming by). If any adjustments are needed, I will do this as soon as possible.




CANCELLING AN APPOINTMENT

If the appointment is canceled at least 24 hours in advance, you can choose to get the deposit back in the form of a gift voucher or to take it with you to a new appointment. When canceling within 24 hours before the appointment, we are forced to take the down payment, because this is too short a day to find a new customer to fill the spot.




PRICE DETERMINATION

Prices are determined per tattoo based on many factors such as size, location on body, design detail, time it takes etc. I’ll give you an indication of the price during the discussion phase. The exact price for your tattoo can be given once the design is ready.




MINUMUM

Due to the hygienic handling, basic costs of the materials, overhead etc. there is minimum rate of € 90.




DEPOSIT

We ask for a deposit per tattoo to confirm the appointment, the amount may vary. This amount is eventually settled with the total price.




PAYMENT

We prefer payment via PIN.




GUARANTEE

You get a six-month warranty on your tattoos. If, for example, there is a light spot or the like within six months after getting your tattoo. you can make an appointment to update it completely free of charge.




INK PASSPORT

You will also receive an ink passport. this is currently recommended by the GGD. This will state which ink was used to get your tattoo. This is very easy because if you want to expand your tattoo in the future, we know exactly which ink we need to have it connect seamlessly.




PREPARATION

We recommend eating well and drinking plenty of water / juice / sugary drinks before your appointment. The night before our appointment, we prefer not to party at full throttle. Alcohol makes the blood thin so that our pigments are also diluted and it ultimately has a negative effect on the tattoo. Make sure you come to the appointment rested and calm, you are in good hands! We stock snacks to give you a boost should you start to feel a bit weak. Moreover, there is enough food, drinks, snacks and other goodies within 20 meters walking distance, if you feel the need!




AFTERCARE


The care after getting a tattoo partly determines the final result. During tattooing, the skin breaks, causing a wound. If you take good care of the tattoo, it will take about six weeks (depending on the size of the tattoo) for this wound to heal completely.

Here are some simple instructions that must be strictly followed for the best possible result;

  • Let the foil sit for at least 3 hours.
  • Wash your hands (Preferably with disinfectant soap, for example Unicura).
  • Wash your tattoo gently with clean hands. Don’t rub!
  • Then dry your tattoo by dabbing gently with a clean, dry towel.
  • Spread a tiny amount of Bepanthen on your tattoo with a clean finger.
  • Put new foil around it.

Repeat this 2 times a day for the next 2 to 3 days.

If the tattoo feels dry, you can choose to rub this DUN with Bepanthen or with Vaseline Intensive Reque (unscented) body lotion. Make sure not to get too much ointment on the tattoo, as the skin can no longer breathe. After 3 to 4 days, crusts / sheets appear on your tattoo; Do not scratch or pick! This can cause light spots in the tattoo. The crusts will eventually fall off by themselves.

Do’s & Don’t’s during the healing process:

  • If you get any irritation on your skin while wearing the foil, remove the foil. Wash the tattoo off with Unicura antibacterial soap and let it air out. However, continue to apply a thin layer of Bepanthen.
  • Never wear tight, unwashed clothes or clothes containing hair or wool on the tattoo wound.
