Can I Bring My Own Design?

How much will a tattoo hurt?
Naturally, as with all permanent changes to one’s body, there will be a certain amount of pain. Remember – no pain, no gain. Think on the lines of Botox and plastic surgery, and yup – any sort of lasting modification to your body will hurt. The various areas of your body will always be more susceptible to being sensitive than others; a good example is that your lower back will be a lot more sensitive than your shoulders. Shading areas will be a lot less painful than the thicker outer lines of tattoos. You can also be rest assured that during the tattooing process, I will ensure you have intermittent breaks to alleviate the pain, and once the initial shock has worn off, the tattooing process becomes easier.
Is having my tattoo done a safe option?
The reputation of poor work done through unpracticed tattoo artists sullies the reputation of all good artists – that is why choosing a professional such as myself with decades of experience under my belt is a no-brainer. Suffice to say I have a reputation to uphold and take great pride in what I do. All my equipment is hygienically clean, sterile and new needles are used with each client and each session. Any concerns can be discussed prior to the procedure commencing.
