The Process

No pain, no gain.

The most important part of the tattoo process is that you need to know what you want. I like to talk with my clients first, fully hear their ideas, and from there get to work. Open communication, early in the process, is the best way to get to a good result. For custom designs, after discussing your ideas, I work up a first draft, and we can talk through and make changes until we have your drawing done as you desire.
We will then set an appointment for the day and time of the tattoo. I will be ready and prepared to do my best work.
Your design will be printed on a special sheet that adheres to the skin to guide the tattooing. Sometimes we need to shave the skin, and if that is the case, we will use a product that allows your design to stick well while being gentle on your skin.
I like to open the new, sterile needles and grips in front of my clients to provide them full security of my process. All tools are covered and sterilized to ensure 100% good hygiene.
Each tattoo is a work of art, and as such, it takes time to complete. We are able to take pauses as needed, and I do my best to ensure a positive experience. Upon finishing my work, all the needles are carefully disposed of. Your tattoo will be covered to protect it for 1-2 hours, and from there it is your responsibility to take care of it as it heals.
