Your Tattoo Process


Hey! Thank you for booking an appointment. Before you come in for our consultation, I would love for you to have a good idea of what you want for your traditional Japanese tattoo. It's okay if you are not 100% sure. We'll find something that suits your needs together. Being open-minded has been one thing that made this business such an enjoyable experience for me.

Don't be shy about bringing reference material such as books or images. It might help inspire you while looking at designs here too. Have fun browsing through all the different styles, and we’ll come up with a concept together.

Tattoo Session

  • Do Not Consume Alcohol Prior To Your Tattoo Session

Consuming alcohol could cause excessive bleeding and get really messy. I advise you to avoid anything that thins your blood 48 hours / 2 days before our session.

  • Eat Before You Come

Don't come to your tattoo appointment hungry. Eating before our session helps you have the strength and energy to bare the strain. Not eating can increase the chance of feeling lightheaded or even passing out. You can also bring snacks to keep you satisfied if we have an extended tattoo session.

  • Wear Loose Clothing

Wear appropriate clothes to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience. Something loose-fitting so that I have easy access when tattooing you! Don't wear expensive or important for your tattoos. It is a messy process and ink stains Don't clean out well when you wash them.

  • Enjoy Your Tattoo Session

While you are getting a Japanese tattoo, expect to experience some pain. Talk to me. Let's conversate to keep you distracted from the pain, and make the process more enjoyable for you.

Take Care of Your Tattoo Afterwards

The tattoo process of healing is important

Here are some tips to help you heal properly:

  • Keep your fresh tattoo clean to avoid infections.

  • If you need to clean it, use a scent-free hypoallergenic soap to avoid irritation until you're fully healed.

  • Let the tattoo dry completely before you apply skin products.

  • After a few days, when the itches start, you should apply scent-free moisturizer to prevent itching and scratching.

  • Don't pick at the scabs, you might alter the final finish, or worse, cause scarring.

  • When all the scabbing and peeling are complete, use sunscreen when you're out in the sun for the first few months.

  • Your tattoo will fade over time so show it off and enjoy it.
