For small tattoos (anything less than four (4) hours to complete), please email [email protected] for more information on how deposits work.

There will be a courtesy reminder email of your tattoo session four (4) days prior to your tattoo session. Please note, it is a courtesy reminder, it is ultimately up to you to remember the date and time of your tattoo appointment.

After the tattoo procedure, please stay in the studio for 15-30 minutes for your tattoo to cool off. For wrapping, there are one of two choices:

  • A. Tattoo is wrapped with petroleum jelly and plastic wrap or

  • B. Bandage (polyurethane acrylic adhesive medical bandage) 

  • When client returns home, immediately remove the plastic wrap and dispose of it 

  • Take a shower with warm or cold water, but avoid directly splashing water or applying soap onto a tattoo (skin) area 

  • With cold or warm water, use your hands to gently rub the tattoo area; ensure to wash away any dried blood, plasma, ink and petroleum jelly. 

  • If you do use soap, it is recommended you use unscented, antibacterial soap 

  • Gently pat dry your tattoo with a clean and soft towel.

  • Apply a thin layer of unscented lotion. 


  • Leave the bandage on for two- three days. If any kind of irritation occurs, remove the bandage immediately. 

  • You can shower with the bandage, but avoid a hot shower or bath. 

  • Avoid extreme exercising or any activity that may cause you to perspire. 

  • After removing the bandage, take a shower with lukewarm water, gently using your hands to wash your tattoo with unscented soap. 

  • Gently pat dry your tattoo with a clean and soft  towel.

  • Apply a thin layer of unscented lotion. 

Remember to  wash your tattoo once or twice a day, with lukewarm water and unscented soap. In addition, gently apply a thin layer of unscented lotion as needed. Wear sun-protective clothing whenever you go outside. If an irritation is to occur, please see a doctor.
