What does the cost of a tattoo depend on?
The price of the tattoo will depend on the size, amount of detail, style, placement and the time it takes to complete. We will happily give you a quote beforehand, however we will not be able to calculate the exact cost until the day of your appointment.

Health and Safety

Can I get a tattoo whilst I am pregnant/ breast feeding?
It is best to wait until you have had a baby and have finished breast feeding before getting a tattoo. This is due to a tattoo lowering your immune system and in case of infections this could be passed on to your newborn.
Can I get tattooed if I have a medical condition?
This will depend on the medical condition you have. Please check with your doctor before coming in. You should always follow the medical advice of your GP.
Can I get tattooed if I am on antibiotics / medication?
Please check this with your doctor before coming in.
Are you a licensed studio?
Do you use brand new needles?
Yes! Every single time! All our needles are sterile single use.


I have some ideas but I am not very artistic, can you help me?
That’s what we are here for! All we need are your ideas and reference material and one of our artists will help to design a custom piece for you.
Most of the tattoo’s on your website are quite large / detailed. Can I get something small / simple?
Of course! 
We tattoo all sorts of designs. We will happily do any size tattoo for you, big or small, simple or complex!
How small can you go with a design?
This will all depend on the amount of detail and placement for your tattoo. The greater the amount of the detail, the larger the tattoo will need to be. This is to ensure your tattoo will age well over time. We will discuss this and advise you in full when making your booking.
Will you tattoo lettering in other languages?
We will tattoo in other languages, however it is your responsibility to ensure the spelling is correct. Please check this thoroughly prior to coming in.
Do you do cover ups?
We recommend having a range of ideas you would like for this new tattoo and we can help you decide what will work best for a cover up. If you are looking to cover up an old tattoo, please email us clear images of this or pop into the studio so we can see this in person as not all tattoos can be covered.
Do you tattoo over scars / stretch marks?
This is different in every case. Please email us clear images of this or pop into the studio so we can see this in person and will advise you.

Aftercare Instructions

What is the aftercare for my new tattoo?
You will be given clear printed after care instructions when you finish your tattoo.
The artist will go through this with you thoroughly as there may be minor variations to the basic instructions and it is important to follow the artist's advice carefully.
Do I need to protect my tattoo from the sun?

All tattoos should be protected by the sun as this will prevent the tattoo from fading. A fresh tattoo will need to be kept out of the sun fully whilst this is healing. Once your tattoo is healed we always recommend putting on a high factor sunblock.
Will my tattoo fade?
Time alters everything, even tattoos. However, with proper care you can minimise fading and keep your tattoo looking amazing for years to come.
Can I get my new tattoo wet?
You can shower as normal with a new tattoo, however it is best to avoid soaking in a bath, hot tubs, swimming pools and the ocean until your tattoo is fully healed. On average this will take around 2 weeks.
