“Some helpful information”

We get a lot of enquiries, so we have compiled a list of our most common queries here that we hope will assist you.

If you are sending an initial enquiry about a tattoo please be sure to include the following information;

  • Your Full Name and contact number
  • A detailed description of your tattoo idea and details.
  • Placement of the tattoo, including a photo.
  • Whether you’d like it in black & grey or colour, or a particular style.
  • Approximate size (e.g. 8 inches high x 5 inches wide)
  • If it is a cover-up or reworking an existing tattoo. Please include clear photos.
  • Any reference images, artworks or other tattoos you like to help us understand what you’re looking for. The artists will design tattoos based on references but will not copy original work without approval from the original artist.
  • Preferred artist, or we will give you some options based on your answers provided.

If you’re chasing a design, we do not do draw ups or designs before the appointment, unless otherwise agreed with the artist at the time of your consultation, then please message them directly, your artist would have provided contact details. All designs will be ready upon your arrival and any changes needed can be made on the day, if this is the case this isn’t an issue and usually won’t take too long.
Please note, the more reference we are provided with prior to your appointment, the easier our artists can put together a custom design for you.

If pain is a concern please don’t get yourself all worked up, the worst part about getting a tattoo is over thinking and worrying about the tattoo.
Please DO NOT apply or use any numbing agents purchased from chemist.
