Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need a follow up appointment?

The complete healing process takes 4-8 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and it is only after 4 weeks that your touch-up/adjustments can be done.​

Will my skin be red or swollen?

Swelling and redness is minimal with most clients, and will disapate within 24-48 hours.

What happens after?

Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker and bolder in color and more sharply defined. This can past up to a week after treatment while the initial healing process takes place.

How long is the appointment?

Please allow at least three hours for your initial appointment to ensure set up and critiquing symmetry.
