Always listen to the artist who tattooed you. Each artist has their own slight variations
A GREAT GENERAL GUIDELINE

Apply suggested ointment (Aquaphor) AS THIN AS POSSIBLE 2-3x a day (or overnight if you were given specific instructions) for 3 days.Wash yourself/tattoo normally.
After 3 days- continue moisturizing with your choice of skin lotion (recommended unscented) 2-3x/day for 4 total weeks.
***ONE MONTH TOTAL HEALING TIME***
We do, however at a small scale. It must be something that can be done in one session and can be drawn on the spot. We are trying to accommodate for as many people as possible.
** WE ARE BACK TO WALK-INS ** FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED 12-8 Tues-sat
We open at noon, we will speak to you about your tattoo, and get you a time frame. If you are one of the first few on the list for one of the artist they will ask that you stay in the building until its your turn.
If your time is later in the day you will need to leave a non-refundable deposit that will secure your appointment and come back at the time we give you.
*we are still taking email requests for tattoos, although email requests will be checked after the in person line. our email request is: Sgwalkins@gmail.com please include your name, number, picture of tattoo, placement and any other details and we will reply as soon as we can
**we recommend in person line up, also getting in line an hour or more before we open, chances are slim that we will have time available for emailed requests.

Easy. 18 and older. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Absolutely. All needles, pigments, gloves, barrier films, etc. are discarded after use. Machines and clipcords are bagged while tubes are cleaned and autoclaved after every use. If you have any questions about the sterilization process, we would be happy to answer them. Our goal is to make sure that you are completely comfortable with the process.
Make sure you've had something to eat and be well rested. Other than that, we will just need a valid state issued photo ID and try to wear clothing that is comfortable and you don't mind getting ink on. DO NOT drink alcohol or take non-prescription drugs before getting tattooed. Avoid sun exposure, especially in the summer. We DO NOT tattoo sun burnt skin or skin that has had too much sun.
**DO NOT apply numbing agents to the skin prior to tattoo. Some artists may refuse to work work on areas that numbing agents have been applied to. Certain products change the actual texture and viability of the skin surface and therefore we cannot guarantee outcomes
Being as we are a single session studio, we charge by piece. Factors include color, detail, size, etc. We only price in person.
