Yes, tattooing hurts. Not as much as you may think, and not as other would like you believe. It’s best to prepare mentally for great pain because if you expect pain, you might lower the pain
You can position your tattoo anywhere. It’s recommended that the size of tattoo fits on the designated position.
Yes, with the proper sterilization and disinfection and control of the instruments used by the studio. Which means that everything that comes in contact with blood or bodily fluids needs to be disposed of (one-time basis) or sterilized (parts of the machine, etc.)
It means that every set of needles used for tattooing is totally new and unused. The needles are separately packed and sterilized. After use, the needles are disposed in the specified containers. One needle = one client.
All colors, paint caps, gloves, razors, pvc bags and other consumable materials are thrown after use. Nothing is used more than once so there is no chance of infection. After tattooing the work surface if cleaned with specially prepared agents for disinfection.
First off, study the area where the tattooing is being done. Is the tattoo room clean and professionally equipped. Your observations can tell you a lot. Then, ask questions. Professional studios enjoy bragging and take pride in their tattoo process so they won’t mind your questions.
Juveniles (under 18 years) will be serviced only if they are accompanied by their parents. Both client and their parent need to have a valid ID which proves their identity (driver license, passport). Every studio has their own rules regarding tattooing and piercing of juveniles. In our studio tattoos aren’t done on juveniles under the age of 16, even with parental consent. Also, depending on years, there are restrictions for piercing:
juveniles from 14-16 years old can only get a piercing on their ears, nose and lip,
juveniles from 16-18 years old can get all piercings except on tongue and nipples
You can’t come hungry. You must eat a big meal maximum of 3 hours before getting tattooed and pierced. You can’t show up tired, because hunger and tiredness cause you to be nervous, increase your sensitivity to pain and dizziness.
You can’t use any drugs or alcohol for 24 hours before getting a tattoo or a pierce because they can cause excessive bleeding and influence the quality of a tattoo or a pierce.
For a tattoo it’s best to call ahead 1-2 weeks in advance. It’s best to come to our saloon, find a motive and site, make an appointment and make advance payment which is deducted from the final tattoo price. If you do not show up at your scheduled appointment you lose your advance. For piercing it’s needed to call one day earlier.

Temporary or bio tattoos are most commonly used as a temporary make up and on these parts of your body last from 3 months to 2 years. On other parts of body it can’t be determined when they’ll evaporate because it depends on the ability of your body to degrade the color, so they can stay up to 30 years. Worst part is, this tattoo doesn’t degrade equally and after a certain amount of time it can create a stain that can stay on your body for longer periods. The method of making a bio tattoo is the same as in permanent tattoos, they only use different colors.
