Making You Aware – The Risks
While tattooing and piercing is considered generally safe and we take all possible precautions to safeguard your health, there are known risks associated with the process. Research all the risks associated with tattoos to learn about the things you should look for when selecting a studio.
To minimize the risk of infection, our artists do not work when they are ill. We also ask that you postpone your visit to our studio until you are free from any disease that could put other clients or our staff at risk. We want to provide the cleanest, safest environment possible and need your cooperation to do so.
Tattooing can tax your immune system. If you are ill, it may increase your recovery time and also put you more at risk for possible infection or other health-related complications.
Tattoos can lead to bacterial infections, particularly if they are not properly cared for. Following our aftercare suggestions can help reduce the risk of infection. However, if your immune system is depressed because of illness or you have an allergy to any part of the process, your risk for infection is greater. If you have any questions regarding the care of your tattoo, stop by the studio to speak with a colleague or artist, or give us a call.
You may experience an allergic reaction to the dyes, pigments, and processes used in tattooing. We cannot determine or guarantee that you will not have an allergic reaction. If you are unsure or concerned, start with a small tattoo first. However, this still will not guarantee that you will not experience an allergic reaction to larger tattoos.
Other Things You Should Know
Skin color will affect the brightness of colors used in a tattoo.
Variations in color and design may exist between any tattoos you select and as ultimately applied to your body.
Obtaining a tattoo is by your choice alone. A tattoo is a permanent change to your appearance and no representations can be made to you regarding the ability to change, alter, or remove any tattoo.
About Body Piercing
Body piercings are especially popular among teenagers and young adults.
They are all fairly safe procedures, as long as they’re performed by a licensed specialist and you take care not to get the hole infected.
How body piercing is carried out
Body piercing is done with a hollow needle by a professional body piercer. The needle is pushed through the skin and tissue of the actual body part.
You’ll normally feel a quick, sharp sting while the skin is being pierced.
Before carrying out a body piercing, the piercer will explain to you any complications that may arise and answer any of your questions.
You’ll usually need to sign a consent form to confirm that you wish to go ahead. Children under 16 need to have a parent or guardian with them.
The skin is disinfected with a 70% alcohol solution and allowed to dry before it’s pierced. All piercing equipment is sterile.
Piercings are available through bookings or walk ins.
