What to Expect


Ready to team up with one of our artists? We can’t wait to work with you! Our tattoo sessions are as unique as tattoos themselves, but knowing what to expect throughout the process can help ease any feelings of nervousness. Here’s a general overview of what our tattoo process looks like:

Consultation – Discuss style, design, inspiration, and any questions. We like to connect in person and get to know you, but your consultation may be possible via email.

Booking – Once all the details have been finalized, it’s time to book your session and pay a deposit.

Preparation – In the days leading up to your tattoo, there are a few preparation guidelines your artist will provide, like staying hydrated and rested.

Session – The long-awaited time has come! You’ll see the final design and make adjustments as needed. Then, your artist will get started, keeping you as comfortable as possible.

Aftercare – To aid healing and tattoo longevity, you’ll follow some important aftercare instructions from your artist.

This place is so great for piercings! The girls that work there are so sweet and make you feel really comfortable which is perfect for when there's needles involved

I'm in love with my daith piercing and will definitely be coming back!


Tattoo Aftercare


The type, placement, and even size of a tattoo dictates its aftercare. Your artist will give you detailed instructions about how to best care for your new artwork. That being said, it’s important to remember the “No TABS” rule!


Touching, picking, peeling, scratching

Abrasives, including washcloths, rubbing alcohol, or cortisone

Bodies of water, like lakes, pools, or even tubs

Sun exposure – even without tattoos, a high-SPF sunscreen is always a good idea!
