HOW DO I BOOK A TATTOO?

Please make sure you are hydrated and have eaten at least 2 hours before your tattoo appointment. Drinking the night before is not recommended and we reserve the right to refuse any treatment if you arrive at your appointment under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In addition, avoid tanning or applying any fake tan on the area to be tattooed, prior your appointment.
