Tattoos are placed when the customer is at least 18 years old, with a minor exception. If he/she is 17 years old then a small tattoo in a discrete place can be placed, with the consent of both parents. The necessary forms are available in the shop.
In principle, all drawings can be put, except drawings that are prohibited by law. Keep in mind that a tattoo is not an exact copy. Skin is not the same medium like paper. If certain factors cause the drawing to differ too much from the original, we will always inform the customer first. The size and location of the tattoo are also two important factors. It’s better to stop by the shop for large projects.
When making an appointment, an advance payment is requested. There is no appointment without it. For large tattoos, no telephone appointments are taken, same applies for e-mail.
The price depends on the size and the time needed to put the tattoo. Small tattoos usually have a fixed price, larger pieces are charged per hour.
Placement of the tattoo:
The placing of a tattoo requires a lot of energy from the body, it’s very important to be well rested on the day of the appointment. A good night sleep and a small meal before the appointment does wonders. If the customer is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he or she will not be tattooed and can, if necessary, be removed from the shop. If you’re ill or feeling unwell on the day of your appointment, it’s better to make another appointment. Certain disorders or diseases and the use of certain medications can be a big part in the healing process of a tattoo. In the worst case, a tattoo can be harmful. When in doubt, a tattoo will not be placed. It doesn’t hurt to proper inform yourself or to ask advice to your doctor or specialist. (eg. during pregnancy)
Cure and care:
The cure depends on many factors, but the most important factor is proper care. A tattoo that heals quickly has less chance of retouching. The shop only uses sterile materials and the chance of ignition is very small. When bad care is taken, inflammation may be possible. In that case, you should contact the shop, usually this can be solved quickly, but do not wait too long!
After placing a tattoo, personal care advice is given. For your information, we briefly explain the main steps:
- The first day after the tattoo is placed, you should wash it 4 to 5 times, if possible, with a neutral soap. Always clean a clean towel to dry, or better yet a paper towel that you can use to remove excess water remains. The tattoo must not be packed with foil or anything else.
- After washing the tattoo, a nourishing cream is advised.
- During the first two weeks, the tattoo should be applied with a nourishing cream 2 or 3 times a day. Basically, the tattoo is best to be rubbed in a “dry” state.
- Crusting is normal for a tattoo (a tattoo is similar to a gall), in the last phase of the healing process peeling occurs (time varies between persons). Itching may also occur, which can be very annoying but be careful because scratching is prohibited. You can damage the tattoo and the cure takes even longer.
- The first two weeks is taking a bath, tanning, going in the pool or sauna prohibited. On the other hand, taking a shower is good.
Retouches can always be done, in principle, they are free (within the first year). However, retouches caused by poor aftercare are not free.
