HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Depending on your skin, health and if you come for touchup refreshers, your tattoo will last from 3+ years. Touch-ups are recommended to keep the pigment bold.
Here are some factors will cause your semi-permanent tattoo to fade faster:
- Oily skin
- Retinol or Vitamin C
- Iron deficiency
- Sun exposure
- Exposure to salt water
DOES IT HURT?
While it may cause slight discomfort, it is still manageable. The tattooing session typically takes forty five minutes, and we make use of a generous amount of numbing cream and a gentle technique. If you are concerned about pain, you can take 1-2 Tylenol tablets 30 minutes prior to your appointment. However, please refrain from taking Advil or consuming coffee before your appointment, as they can lead to excessive bleeding and increased sensitivity during the procedure.

HOW CAN I PREPARE
- Do not consume caffeine and alcohol for 24 hours prior to your appointment to prevent excessive pain and bleeding.
- Do NOT TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such a Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48-72 hrs prior to your procedure. Extra strength Tylenol can be taken if you have low pain tolerance.
- Avoid exercising the day of the procedure.
