Think before we Ink : Think about what you want on your body before getting a tattoo. Once you’ve picked a design and discussed the procedure, then we will schedule an appointment with you.
When you arrive, we derive : Once you have arrived at the tattoo studio, we will present you with a stencil that is been created for your design. Once the design is approved from your end, we will ask you to fill a quick health checkup form so that you don’t have any skin related issues and you don’t get affected on your health while we ink you.
Dream tattoo on the way : Once finalized with the design, we will shave the location where you are getting the tattoo. Your tattoo will take anywhere from 5 minutes for a little star to several hours for bigger pieces. We assure you to have a healthy and sterilized tattoo, as we know you are the one who will wear this image for life.
Take a Final look and it’s done : Once your beautiful tattoo is done, please allow the artist to take a picture as we have worked hard on it. Also please take a pic at your end as this is a part of your body which will remain long with you. Allow us to bandage the tattooed area and follow the aftercare instructions.
