Tattooing Etiquette


- When you are in a Tattoo Studio you should conduct yourself with a sense of decorum as you would do in any other business.
- Going to a Tattoo Studio is no different than going to a restaurant. You are the customer/client and we are going to try to make your experience the best one we possibly can. We expect you to conduct yourself in a civil, polite and respectful manner.
- Your goal and our goal is the same: To get you the best Tattoo (or Piercing) in the most pleasant way possible. With a little Etiquette (from Everyone), it’s not hard to do. To help make your Tattoo experience the best one it can be.

 Here is a list of “Do’s & Don’ts” for your next visit to the Studio

- DO try to have some kind of idea what you are looking for before you come to the studio. Impulse buying isn’t usually a good way to find the best Tattoo that you’ll be able to live with the rest of your life. We understand that you may be coming in just to get some ideas, but you should have some idea that lead to you to the decision to have a Tattoo in the first place. The more clearly you describe what you want, the quicker and easier we will be able to help you.

- DO NOT enter our Studio if you have been drinking Alcohol or if you are under the influence of something. Show your Tattooist some respect & come in sober. Nobody likes dealing with drunks. If your breath smells of Alcohol you are NOT going to be Tattooed (not by a reputable Tattooist anyway). If you are wasted, you will NOT be in the right frame of mind to make any correct decisions on what to get & you will bleed very heavily & the Tattoo will look “abstract”

- DO NOT ask your Tattooist to draw something just to see if he can. There are people who come into the Studio and ask for drawings over and over, without ever getting anything done. Don’t be that person!!! If you want something drawn, the Tattooist will be more than happy to work 1 on 1 with you & changing and re-drawing it until it’s just the way you want it, but make sure it is what you want when the drawing comes out right.

- DO maintain personal hygiene and physical decorum. Unfortunately, this has to be said for some people’s sake. There is nothing worse than having to work with someone who SMELLS. You wouldn’t go to the Doctors without bathing, so do the same for your Tattooist. If you just finished running and suddenly decide to get your feet tattooed, go home and WASH them first. The same goes for bodily functions, if you tend to have problems with your stomach (eg: gas) it may NOT be a good idea to be tattooed. You get the idea.

- DO tell your Tattooist if you are feeling “sick” or “fainty”. Tell the Tattooist right away, (don’t try to be a hero and tough it out) that way the Tattooist can and will know how to deal with it, if he is prepared straight away then, he will deal with it accordingly. Your Tattooist is here to make your experience more comfortable. It is a great idea to tell your Tattooist if you have any medical conditions prior to Tattooing Eg: Pregnancy/Diseases/Medications

- DO NOT try to force your artist to make social conversation if they don’t seem receptive to it. Some Tattooist/s like to talk, some don’t. You want the best Tattoo, so if your Tattooist doesn’t talk, it’s ok, he is concentrating to make sure you have the best possible Tattoo. Your Tattooist will be appreciated by this and will reflect in his work.

- DO NOT bring a “cheering squad” to the Tattoo Studio. Many shops will not let ANYONE accompany you to the Tattooing room. You’re always free to ask, but very few Tattooist/s want 5 of your friends in the work area while he is trying to mark you for life.

- DO NOT try to bargain with your Tattooist like you’re some vendor in an Indonesian night market. You wouldn’t go to the supermarket or a restaurant and try to talk a check out chick / waitress into lowering the price. If all you have is a certain amount/limit of cash, talk to the Tattooist first, he can then work out a budget for you, if you can’t afford it, we can do a lay-by system for you until it is all paid and then you’re on your way. Bargaining in a Tattoo shop is bad taste which is the quickest way to tick off your Tattooist.
