Your Personalized Tattoo Experience: Step by Step
Hey! Thank you for booking an appointment. If you haven't scheduled an appointment, you can contact me via text, email, or IG message. 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.

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.
