Tips and Tricks

-  Eat well. Eating a huge meal with lots of protein about 1/2 hour before being      tattooed is the most important thing you can do to make your experience a          pleasant one and to guard against fainting.

-  Be well-rested. 

-  Do not come if you are sick, high or hung over. Don't do drugs (except Tylenol)    or drink prior to being tattooed.    

-  Taking Acetominophen (Tylenol) 1/2 hour prior to the procedure will take the        edge off  the pain and will increase endurance.   

-  Ladies:  avoid scheduling sessions while suffering from pre-menstrual syndrome,    at this time one's pain threshold is only about half of what it normally is. 

-  Don't bring little kids or pets. We don't do "insta-sleeves" so don't show up 45    minutes before your flight leaves. 

-  Please do not send us 12 emails with 20 attachments. Involve yourself in your      own tattoo; try narrow down what it is that you actually want.

-  WE ARE NOT HERE TO COPY OTHER PEOPLE'S CUSTOM TATTOOS. Because   that would be unethical. We can use images as stylistic and compositional           inspiration when developing a custom design, which can be similar (not             identical) to the one you saw on Pintarest.
