Do I need an appointment?

Yes, you will need to call into the shop to book an appointment.  We will discuss your design and book an appropriate time slot for you.  You will need to pay a non-refundable deposit to secure your appointment.  If you need to change your booking, you must give us at least three working days notice.  Sorry but we don’t take bookings over the phone/Facebook and we don’t accept cards.

Can I bring my own design?

Yes, your tattoo will be custom designed for you, but if you have a design, or even just some ideas from pictures, websites, etc, bring them in and we'll talk about how they can be turned into your own unique tattoo.

Are there any tattoos you don't do?

We don't usually tattoo hands or faces. Hands take a lot of wear and tear, so the results can be disappointing. Facial tattoos don't have the nickname 'permanent job stoppers' for nothing - so although we love individuality, we won't usually do them unless you're heavily tattooed already. And we'd always advise you to think carefully about tattooing a partner's name - a tattoo is forever, relationships sometimes aren't! (But if it's too late - see next question!!)

Can you cover up an old tattoo I don't want anymore?

In most cases, yes. We'll suggest the best way to cover up an old tattoo and give you a new one you'll love! 

Can I look at examples of your work?

Please check out the galleries on this site, or our Facebook page.

How do I know everything's sterile?

All tattoo studios must be registered with the local authority and display a certificate to show this. We use new, disposable needles for all our customers. We have been awarded the highest '4 star' hygiene rating from East Lindsey District Council.

How do I look after my new tattoo?

The tattooist will give you full instructions for aftercare. Your new tattoo will be covered before you leave the studio, when you get home, wash and pat dry and then apply a thin film of a suitable moisturiser. We stock specialist aftercare 'Tattoo Goo'. Treat the affected area as you would a mild sun burn. DON'T pick or scratch it. Keep the tattoo clean and moisturised until it has completely healed. If you experience any problems, please contact us in the first instance or talk to your GP.
