How do I prepare for my tattoo appointment?


The most important point for the customers is the preparation for the tattoo appointment and the care of the tattoos. The customer can hardly influence everything else. It is well known that a tattoo is actually an injury. Color is introduced into the skin through hundreds of thousands of pinpricks. Of course, this is painful and stresses the body and skin. For me, tattoo sessions often last for several hours and thus demand a lot from the body. For hours our body has to fight against the pain stimulus, which is also successful - provided you are in good physical shape. Therefore you have to appear well rested and strengthened for the tattoo appointment. So it means sleeping, drinking and eating enough! But watch out! Cola, energy drinks and sausage rolls are not necessarily what you can call a healthy snack! The sugar in the coke, for example, gives energy, but the caffeine makes you restless and this is actually the wrong thing! Dietary fibers, vitamins and high-energy foods are useful here! It is better to eat a strengthening cereal in the morning, for example, and take a few bars with you to the tattoo studio. An electrolyte drink cannot hurt, and a little glucose can work wonders for poor circulation. That is of course up to you. But no matter what you prefer as a diet - you should not appear tired and hungry for the tattoo appointment!




How do I care for my tattoo?


When your new tattoo is ready, I disinfect it and tie it with a film bandage. Since I usually tattoo until the evening and my customers often have a longer journey home, I recommend always removing the film bandage the next morning, then thoroughly cleaning the tattoo with water and, if available, PH-neutral soap and then disinfect with Octenisept Spray. This is an alcohol-free mucous membrane disinfectant, which therefore hardly causes skin irritation. In short - it doesn't burn :) Then continue to apply panthenol ointment several times a day for 2-3 weeks so that the wound remains moist. Always clean with water beforehand, carefully washing off the crust. For the first four days, apply a film bandage overnight to avoid crusting during sleep. Of course, Octenisept disinfectant spray can also be used at any time after washing! Don't forget to wash your hands before tattoo care! During the entire healing process, please avoid solarium, sun, chlorinated water and bathing! In order to maintain the colors of your tattoo perfectly for years, it is necessary to expose it to as little UV radiation (sun, solarium, etc.) as possible! Use sunscreen with sun protection factor 50 when sunbathing !!!
This is the only way to achieve permanent color preservation! Side effects:
Crusting can occur if you are careless when applying cream - do not remove this crust roughly, it will fall off by itself! Do not panic if the tattoo should initially appear a bit bright and "skin scraps" come off with color! Permanent creaming can possibly lead to over-greasing of the skin and thus to pimples!




Will it hurt?


It doesn't work without pain! Don't worry, it won't get too bad. However, a longer appointment is exhausting. If you follow the instructions according to point one, you will get through the tattoo appointment well.




How long is the waiting time for an appointment?


Basically, the waiting time for a tattoo appointment is currently around 4 months. However, appointments are often canceled. So if you are spontaneous, with a little luck, a faster appointment is possible. With smaller tattoos a shorter waiting time is possible!




What is the price?


Generally, a larger, high quality tattoo usually takes several hours of work. Therefore, a higher financial expenditure is to be expected than with a small tattoo. Tattoos are available from € 100, - incl. VAT, material and all other expenses.
