Tattoo

Appointments / Waitingtimes

We work by appointment only.

Waiting times vary per artist.(1 to 4 months)

Every tattoo request will be discussed with the artist of your choice and if he or she is up for your project you can get an appointment or a place on their waitinglist (depending on the artist).

We don’t have flash or books from which you can choose a design. All designs are unique and personal. We ask for a first consultation before tattooing to discuss your design.

If you are interested in a tattoo please use our contactform to briefly explain your idea (placement, size, inspiration, keywords,...).

By accepting only the projects that are completely in our own style we can keep the waitinglists shorter and create more beautiful pieces.

We try to finish projects in progress before taking new ones, sometimes projects turn out to be a lot bigger than planned, sometimes people change their minds and don’t want to be on the list anymore. We can’t predict everything, so waitingtimes may vary...

Why we can't always help everyone
Aftercare

To get the best possible result in terms of colours and smoothness, we advice you to accurately follow our instructions!

Approximately 3 hours after your tattoo is finished, you can remove the plastic foil.

Wash your tattoo carefully with lukewarm water and ph-neutral soap, don't use a sponge or washcloth. Don't clean the tattoo with alcohol.

Don't rub dry but carefully pat dry with a clean towel.

Let the tattoo rest for a few hours so the superficial skin can close.

Apply a thin layer of Bepanthen cream / ointment (with clean, washed hands!), gently massage until the cream is completely absorbed.

Repeat this 3 times a day, until the crusts are all gone (10 to 15 days).

Refresh your sheets before you go to sleep the first night.

Even if the crusts are gone after 2 weeks, keep taking care of the tattoo to prevent your skin to dry out.

During the healing period:

  • Don't wear synthetic fabrics, jeans or nylon stockings, only cotton.
  • Don't take baths, showers are allowed but be carefull with soap and shampoo, don't put the nozzle directly on your tattoo.
  • Don't take sauna's or taning beds, don't go swimming and don't expose your skin directly to the sun.
  • Don't scratch, leave the crusts as long as possible and just wait.
  • Never touch your tattoo with dirty hands!

Price & Payments

It's impossible to say in advance how much a tattoo will cost. This depends on your skin type, complexity of the design, placement, how long you can withstand a session, etc... Every project is different and we can not predict the final price or how long it will take exactly.

This is why we work at an hourly rate. The price varies per artist, more info via email.

There's no terminal in the shop, you can only pay cash.

To confirm your appointment we will ask a deposit which will be subtracted from the price of your last session.

In case of annulation, please notify in time (minimum 5 days), otherwise you may lose your deposit.
