Our needles are pre-sterilized single-use. We use disposable tubes or stainless steel tubes that are sterilized in a Ritter M11 Autoclave after every client. A cold sterilant is used on machines, clip cords, and work surfaces along with barrier film.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY FIRST APPOINTMENT/

State-issued photo ID, reference material for the artist to draw from if applicable. Be sure to bring a change of clothing, or wear clothing that allows easy access to the area getting tattooed. For instance, if you are getting a thigh tattoo bring or wear a pair of loose fitting shorts.

HOW DO I PAY FOR MY SESSION /

We accept cash or credit.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY TATTOO /

After your tattoo session, be sure to remove any bandages and wash it when you get home. Apply a small amount of Aquaphor ointment a couple of times a day for about a week, and then switch to a white water based lotion. Something for sensitive skin with no fragrances and a low alcohol content.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY PIERCING /

Wash your piercing once or twice daily. Use a saline solution to rinse after washing and a couple of times throughout the day. There is no need to turn your jewelry. It's best to avoid touching the piercing unless you are cleaning it.
