It can never be stressed enough how vital it is to look after your tattoo throughout it's healing process.
Whilst we'll do all we can to arm you with aftercare advice, after you leave the shop the well-being of your tattoo is in your hands.
There's a lot of conflicting information on the internet about the right and wrong ways of looking after your tattoo, but ultimately it falls down to your body's way of healing that determines the best type of aftercare for yourself. Some aftercare methods work well for some, other's not...
The advice we offer in the studio is one of the most tried and tested methods in the industry, and is suited to most skin types.
For your ease and convenience (and probably because you left your sheet at the shop-naughty), we've included a downloadable copy of our aftercare instructions, so there's no more excuses....
If you would like more information on our aftercare advice, or just healing advice in general, please call or e-mail the shop where our team will be happy to assist you!

For designs that fall under the 10 hour mark, they will be independently priced on size, location, detail etc...

The best way to get an accurate price as possible is to come and have a consultation with one of our artists.

1. The idea/design- it's always good to send over reference images for us to look at!
