How can I prepare for my tattoo?
Make sure you are well rested, well hydrated, and have eaten recently. Aside from that, take a shower and bring some cool drink or chocolate to keep up your sugar level.
What should I wear for my tattoo session?
It’s more important to be comfortable than to be fashionable. Looser is better than tighter, and keep in mind you want to be able to cover up certain places that might show, depending on where you’re getting your tattoo. Avoid white colour dresses.
How should I plan for a bigger tattoo?
First thing, come talk to us. The best large pieces always BEGIN with a cohesive plan, not just bits and pieces loosely tied together. We can do a sleeve or back piece with existing work in place, but it will ALWAYS look better when you come in with a plan and allow the same artist to help bring that plan to fruition for you. Along those same lines, it’s going to take multiple session and cost you ₹40000 or more to even come close to doing a sleeve. So plan ahead and save your money so that you can tackle these large pieces as they are investments and commitments.
When should I not get tattooed?
You should not get tattooed when you are:
- When you don’t know what you want
- When you can’t afford it
- When you’re sunburned
- When you haven’t showered
- Being pressured into it
- When you’ve been told by us that your idea is bad
What is the pain level for a tattoo?
A tattoo is probably a 3/10. The best comparison would be to getting a scratch on a sunburn or to having someone draw on you with a ball-point pen on a sunburn. It doesn’t feel good, but it’s more of an intermittent irritation than a constant pain. Everyone has a different pain threshold and handle pain differently. If you relax and concentrate on breathing, it is practically pain free.
What is your minimum price for tattoos?
Our studio minimum price is ₹1500. You might not realize it, but we go through nearly the same amount of very expensive supplies to do a tattoo the size of a quarter as we do for a tattoo the size of a softball. Everything has to be sterilized, before and after.
How much does a tattoo cost?
The cost structure depends on the size, detailing, shading, number of colors used for the tattoo. Please understand that any quote that is given to you (over the phone/email) is simply a price GUIDE and not the final quote which will be decided once the design is drawn up by the artist and is ready to be tattooed.
Do you accept card payment?

What is the age requirement?
For tattoos, we can tattoo minors age 16+ with a parent present and the proper identification. For piercings, we can only do earlobes for those under age 14 and my piercer will stop and not do the piercing if the child says no. Starting at age 14 we can pierce anything (besides nipples and genitals) with the above consent.
Should I walk-in or book an appointment?
We always encourage people to book an appointment for tattoos of any size. First, this guarantees you will get in at a certain time without potentially waiting for hours. Second, it gives our artists the chance to draw your new tattoo so that it’s 100% unique to you. For smaller tattoos, if we have openings feel free to try to walk in.
What is your sterilisation procedures?
Single use needles only. Needles are discarded immediately after use and disposed. All stainless steel instruments that are used go through a strict cleansing routine. They are first cleaned ultrasonically, then soaked in a chemical sterilising bath and finally placed into an autoclave. This destroys all bacteria and viruses (eg. HIV, Hepatitis etc). The autoclave itself is tested regularly. Disposable ink caps are used and discarded after each client. Every item that touches your body is either completely sterile or new.
How long does it take to heal after a tattoo?
The majority of your new tattoos healing process will be done within the first two weeks. However, the skin is still working to heal and rejuvenate and you need to plan on a 4-6 weeks for your skin to be back to its previous state.
Why do tattoos start to itch while healing?
As the skin rejuvenates itself, usually about a week after the tattoo was done, the itch sets in. This is 100% normal. Good moisturizers will help immensely with this but DO NOT SCRATCH IT! If lotion isn’t helping, run it under cold water for a few moments and you should be itch free.
What happens if i'm late to my appointment?
Don’t be. Seriously, if you’re late to your appointment it will throw our schedule off for the day.
