Tips and Tricks

-  Eat well. Eating a huge meal with lots of protien about 1/2 hour prior to being tattooed is the most important thing you can do to assure that your experience is a pleasant one and that you don't pass out.

-  Be well rested.  Be well (not sick, high or hung over).  Except Tylenol, don't do drugs or drink prior to being tattooed.    

-  If you're scared and aren't allergic to it, take Acetominophen (Tylenol) 1/2 hour prior to the  procedure. It will take the edge off and increase your endurance.   

-  Ladies:  try to avoid scheduling sessions while suffering from Pre Menstrual Syndrome when your 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. We can use images as stylistic and compositional inspiration when developing a custom design for you, which can be similar (not identical) to the one you saw on Pintarest, because that would be unethical.
