How should you prepare yourself for a tattoo session?

Are you planning to get a new tattoo done? That's amazing! Have you done some bit of research on the design that you would like to get inked? This is highly recommended! If you do your homework before you step into the studio, it will be much easier for you to get your thoughts across to the artist. Once you are at the studio, your artist will help you make the design more unique and customized for you.


Working with the artist...

Tattooing in real life, isn't really like one of those TV shows, where you just walk into a studio, desiring to get a full sleeve done, sit down within half an hour and in another half hour you walk out with an amazing tattoo on your hand. If you want a unique piece of art under the layers of your skin, you gotta invest some time. If you rush your artist, the quality will be compromised. When you are discussing the design with your artist, please have an open mind. Being an experienced professional, s/he will try to advise you on what looks good, and what doesn't.

Once the design is ready, you have to give your artist some time to sketch it up and prepare the stencil for you.


And finally the session...

Here's the big moment. The moment when you finally get inked. We understand your excitement. We have certain recommendations that will make the whole process run smoothly for everyone.


Here's what we recommend for your session...

  • Get a good sleep the night before.
  • Have a heavy meal before you get inked.
  • Drink a lot of water.
  • No alcohol on the day before or the day of getting inked. Learn why
  • If you have any medical condition that you think might affect the tattoo procedure or healing, please advise you artist of the same.
  • Please don't take any painkillers. The process of tattooing isn't so painful, that will require you to take one. Moreover they thin your blood, making the process of tattooing difficult.
  • Try to use some decent deodorant. Try not to stink when you are at the studio. This will make your artist more comfortable.
  • Observe good hygiene.
  • Use loose, comfortable and dark clothing.
  • You will have to be in the same posture for a while. So, have a prepared mindset. If you are planning to get a big tattoo done, you are encouraged to bring along something (may be a book, or a tab), to pass the time.
  • When you are coming to the studio, you are permitted to bring at max one person with you.
  • If you are planning to get inked during weekend, make sure you get an appointment beforehand.
  • Please carry an age proof, in case you look too young. You might be asked for one.
  • We try to offer a very professional, and at the same time comfortable environment when you are at the studio. We expect the same professional behavior from your end as well. NO BULLSHIT will be tolerated.

We hope these guidelines were helpful for you. If you still have doubts you can always get in touch with us. Thanks for reading.
