Here we describe and answer questions that are most often asked and also we would like to give some advice.
Before getting a tattoo:
- Avoid sunbathing and tanning for 3 days before getting a tattoo.
- Do not drink a lot of alcohol and a lot of caffeine the day before.
- Hydrate inside and out. Drink plenty of water and use body lotion on the skin surface to be tattooed at least 2 weeks before tattooing.
- Get some sleep, arrive relaxed.
- Eat, drink properly before tattooing.
- Arrive in comfortable clothing that does not interfere with our work.
- If possible, arrive alone, as your attendant may not be able to be by your side and will have to wait outside.
After the tattoo is done:
- Follow exactly the instructions of the tattoo artist, they will tell you everything about the treatment and what to expect in the following days to come.
- Feel free to ask anything, don’t try to find out the answer from the internet or your friends. We will help!
- The correction is free – if it is not through your own fault. Be sure to speak with you artist after 2-3 weeks, after recovery. Come in, show us, send us your tattoo, because then we can see that this might need to be corrected somewhere. If you only reappear months later, unfortunately we won’t fix it for free.
A few questions and answers:
Do you do unique designs?
Yes, of course. If you have an appointment for a tattoo, we will design the discussed pattern according to your request and possibilities. You can view the design in person before your appointment, which we will also discuss when there would be a suitable time for this. We will not send you the design we have created.
Is the designing free?
Yes, if you have an appointment for a tattoo. During the personal discussion, we design the pattern with the information you give to us. Please tell us exactly, in detail what you want, what your idea is, because after design is done, only 2 changes are free, after that we charge 5000 HUF for each change.
Does it help you if I send pictures?
Absolutely. We also ask that if you have an image that you like in any detail, show it and send it, because then we will see your idea more easily. For example, you want a rose and you like the letters in the picture, or you want a green gradient in the picture you sent.
You emailed us and you didn’t receive a response.
Please check the Spam folder in your e-mail account first, because sometimes our mail gets there. If you can’t find the answer there either, feel free to write to us again because we are also human and may have slipped our attention.
Why does the ink come out in some parts? Why is the correction not free?
There are body surfaces where there is a much higher risk of abrasion and because the epithelial cells change frequently, there is simply no time for the tattoo to heal as they are constantly used during healing. Examples are fingers, feet, soles, etc. These parts can also be tattooed, but be aware that these are not warranty areas and will almost certainly need to be re-tattooed in order to be permanent. Before tattooing on such body surfaces, we always draw your attention in advance.
Why can’t it be this size? I saw on the internet that it looks good even in such a tiny size.
Please trust our tattoo artists, believe that they don’t want to hurt you and they can do it for you. Since a tattoo is a lifetime commitment, we simply want it to look good over time; not just the first 1-2 years. What you see on the internet are 99% fresh tattoos which looks really good after they are made. But the same picture was not exposed after 2 years. After the session, it is really beautiful, but the body and skin surface are constantly changing, with a small tattoo it becomes visible over time, the tattoo will be deformed.
Then isn’t it worth making a small tattoo?
Yes. In each case, however, we will tell you what we think is the minimum size, which is also durable.
My girlfriend wants a tattoo and asked me to ask…
We don’t bite, so your girlfriend can feel free to write to any of our contacts or call us, or she can even come into the salon. It’s easier for you and us to discuss directly what you want. The exception to this, of course, is if you want a gift for them.
I saw it on TV, my friend said, etc. that the… .. cream is also good for aftercare.
Do not use any creams other than those listed for you when the tattoo is done!
Does it hurt?
Yes. (We don’t understand the question. We have more services, which one are you thinking about?)
A tattoo? In which part of the body? Yes there are places where it hurts and there are places where it is uncomfortable. But we haven’t heard yet that it’s unbearable, and someone would never want another tattoo again.)
What is? (We assume the price is asked, but we don’t know what for so we can’t answer what.)
Could you help me?
In what? (We are reluctant to do field work, but if you describe what you want and it has to do with our service, we will try.)
How long does it take?
What? (We assume you’re wondering how long a session will take, but we don’t know what you want, we don’t know what to answer.)
? (That’s great. We look forward to your ideas, but if you don’t describe what you’re interested in, we don’t know what to answer.)
I don’t know what I want I’m just interested.
? (If there is no question then there is no answer unfortunately.)
In all cases, we try to respond to all letters and inquiries we receive. Please state and describe exactly what you would like to know, what you would like to receive an answer to. We don’t think you want to go into an endless question-and-answer correspondence either. Email us and write down all your thoughts. We are doing our best to respond as soon as possible, but we also have families, so we may only be able to respond to a letter received at 2 a.m. during business hours. Also, in many cases we have to discuss a question / request in order to be able to offer the best possible solution or we work and assume that you would not be happy if we stopped tattooing you because we need to answer emails. Please be patient, as soon as we can we will reply.
Feel free to contact us with any other questions you may have.
Frequently asked questions and a few misconceptions about piercings.
Ear piercings and other piercings on different parts of the body are one of the oldest forms of decorating and modifying our bodies. However, despite its long history, there are still many misconceptions about it. A lack of knowledge can lead to serious health problems and complications.
Does it hurt or not?
Pain is a relative concept because everyone has a different pain threshold. The least painful parts are the earlobes and navel. Painful parts can be the eyebrows, lips, tongue and nostrils. The second most painful areas where thick cartilage can be found e.g. in the ear. But we haven’t heard anyone say “never again”.
Can I bring a jewelry with me?
No. In each case, we give the jewelry. After full recovery, however, you can change it to almost anything.
Can I take a bath?
Yes of course. Although, soaking the area during healing is not recommended.
A friend said, I read on the internet, etc.…
In any case, consult a professional because there is a lot of false information that will not help you make a decision.
What kind of earrings should be placed in the new hole?
In fact, most jewelry store products are not suitable for newly pierced skin. Contaminants can lead to infection. Special jewelries for piercings are polished smoother. In addition, considering the swelling, we can select the optimal length for the piercing. This is because the swelling usually occurs after the piercing is done.
It’s still sensitive. What do I do?
If after recovery the piercing is still sensitive, it hurts, and inflamed, always contact us in person or by email. It is possible that a small amount of bacteria has entered, but it may also not have healed completely. In order for us to help you quickly, do not report the problem only after months.
Do I need to change the jewelry I used to make my piercing?
In some cases, after recovery, yes. There are parts where due to a slight swelling after the puncture, we need to insert a larger piece of jewelry so that it doesn’t get stuck on the body. However, these jewelries will need to be replaced for a shorter piece of jewelry in the ear. The piercer will always inform you of this during preparation.
What is a Microdermal?
Microdermal is a new generation of body jewelry that is basically an implant. It consists of two parts, a head and a base, which are connected by a threaded bar. The base is located below the surface of the skin and there is only the head of the bar sticking out of the surface of the skin on which the head is placed. It can be placed virtually anywhere on the body.
Can I change a Microdermal?
Yes of course. After healing, the jewelry head itself can be replaced.
I want to take it out, how can I do that?
You can not. As it is located below the surface of the skin, we recommend only a specialist / piercer who can remove the base from under the skin with the least damage. Unfortunately, we do not do the removal, but if you contact us we can recommend a professional who will deal with it.
Piercings should be moved often.
This is one of the worst pieces of advice they can give. Regular rotation and movement of the earrings or piercing can aggravate the wound, so healing can take much longer. After all, the bacteria on the jewelry would be getting into the wound by rotation.
Piercing with a gun is safer than piercing with a needle.
Piercing with a needle is the safest way to pierce your ear. It is done with a single-use device and everything can be perfectly sterilized. For piercing with a pistol, a sharp earring is used and this earring breaks down the tissues. These wounds take longer to heal. When using the gun, the ear becomes pinched, which increases the risk of injury. For this reason, making the right hole is neither easy nor very safe.
Another popular myth is about allergic reactions.
Stainless steel does not cause allergic reactions. This is why needles are also made of such material. For the first earrings or piercings, choose materials that do not come into active contact with the skin. This could be, for example, safe titanium, which is also used for prostheses and dental implants.
After removing the earrings, the ear heals immediately.
Every person heals at a different rate. For some people the hole will close up in a short time when they take the jewelry out, while others can take years to do the same. There are so-called restorative ointments, which, of course, are not always effective, and in the case of larger holes and stretched ears, surgery may even be required.
Nipple piercings are not a problem during breastfeeding.
Wearing nipple piercings during breastfeeding can also be very risky. Piercing the nipples can also cause nerve damage, which can be a problem in the excretion of milk. The healing process takes 6-12 months, so it’s worth taking it out when planning your baby. Moreover, before re-piercing the nipple, it is worth waiting 3-4 months after breastfeeding until hormone levels return to normal.
Navel piercings can also be worn during pregnancy.
It all depends on how you feel during pregnancy and how your navel is. If the jewelry does not cause discomfort, it can be worn, but only if it is made of some polymeric material. This type of jewelry adapts to changes in the body. However, if the skin is very tight, the navel piercing must be removed. It is not recommended at all by professionals to insert new body jewelry during pregnancy, and it is advisable to remove old body jewelry as soon as possible.
