Let’s meet the team!

More About Us…

The likelihood is that, if you’ve come to our about us page, you’re considering getting a tattoo with us. Congratulations! You’ve made the first step in a very exciting journey.

Let’s answer some of the most common questions we get to put your mind at ease and help you learn more about how we tattoo you.

How Do I Make An Appointment? 

You can contact the artist you want to tattoo you on their personal Instagram pages. Each artist is in charge of their own diaries, so you’ll need to sign up for their individual waitlists.

We know that it can be annoying when you have to wait months for an appointment, but our artists are worth the wait. We’re only human! We’re working as quickly as we can to get you all in.

Do You Take Walk-Ins? 

We have allotted time for walk-in appointments, every Tuesday from 10 am to 12 pm. These appointments are first come, first served, and there’s no guarantee we’ll get to everyone who turns up. The artist will change each week, so you’ll never know who you’re going to get!

To secure a confirmed appointment, contact your desired tattoo artist on Instagram. Please don’t come to the shop without an appointment outside of these walk-in hours.

Does Tattooing Hurt? 

Everyone is different – some people don’t feel any pain at all! However, the majority of people will feel some degree of discomfort. The pain is often manageable without painkillers, so we don’t offer these to our clients.

However, if you feel like the pain is too much, you can tap out at any time and we’ll take a break. If it’s too much to finish the entire tattoo in one session, we can book you in for another appointment and finish it another time.

How Should I Prepare For My Appointment?

We ask that you don’t drink alcohol or use any blood thinning medication 24 hours before the appointment. Please don’t use tanning beds for at least two weeks before a tattoo appointment, and limit your exposure to the sun.

Before your appointment, eat normally and make sure you get a full night’s sleep. Bring a bottle of water with you to keep hydrated. Wear loose clothing wherever you’re getting the tattoo, and make sure the area is easily accessible.
