How do I care for my tattoo?
CARE TIP NO. 1: TREAT YOUR TATTOO WITH LOVE
First of all, we would like to say that there are different ways to take care of your tattoo. Also, every tattoo artist will give you different care instructions. Some clients prefer to cover their tattoo with foil for the first few days. Others prefer to let their tattoo heal in the air. You know your body best! So if you have already had positive experiences with tattoos and they healed well, take care of your tattoo as usual. For all others, for whom it may not have worked out so well or who may have had problems, did not really get instructions or just want to try something different – here are our recommendations and tips.
How do I prepare for the tattoo appointment?
Eat enough breakfast/food, get enough sleep, travel stress-free: check out route/parking options, drink enough water and sugary drinks, you can bring snacks. Pay in cash if possible. Pack clothes for tattooing.
What do I need for the appointment?
ID, snacks, cash, after the tattoo you need cling film and Bepanthen (normal wound and healing ointment, not Bepanthen Plus), it makes sense to wear comfortable clothes (e.g. shorts if the leg is tattooed, bikini if the back is tattooed, jogging pants, nothing too tight because of swelling, etc.)
It happens again and again that tattoo color or Stencil-Tine is sprayed on clothes. Rather wear something that is not a pity if it gets dirty. Likewise, we do not wear street shoes in the studio. You can take thick socks or slippers, as long as you’re comfortable
When should I not be tattooed?
Do not book/go ahead with an appointment if you have allergies or if you take medications which are blood-thinning. Also: in case of autoimmune diseases, alcohol consumption, drugs, intoxicants, if you are pregnant or still breastfeeding or if you are hungover. Further, if you are sick (including colds or if antibiotics are being taken), if you have sunburn on the site of the tattoo, or if you plan to take a beach vacation within 4 weeks of the tattoo appointment.
Is there parking available at the studio?
We do not have customer parking, the best place to park is at JKU University. Do not park at the restaurant or behind the house (private parking).
