HOW DOES IT WORK?

Usually we ask customers to come and discuss with us in person. We have assistants available all day and a 12-artist team who can help you refine your ideas, aid your decision and choose the best artist who specilized in your tattoo's style. After that, we can book you the day you will do the tattoo. All of this process is free but we will require a deposit to hold your appointment to do the tattoo or before doing the designs.

ELIGIBLE AGE?

18+ or with parental consent

HOW MUCH DOES A TATTOO COST?

Our minimum price is 500.000 VND. Final price is depended on size, details of the design and the placement on the body where it will be placed.

HOW CAN I GET A PRICE QUOTE?

By having a (free) consultation with the artist, in order for us to quote your idea, we need to consider the subject, size, placement on the body, detail, etc.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO?

We recommend that you eat well before you come in, and remember to stay hydrated. If you start to feel woozy, have a soda.
It’s best not to party the night before because alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours. Blood also dilutes our pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Remember to stay calm and cool, there’s nothing to stress over - it’s just a tattoo!

DOES IT HURT?

Yes! But in the best possible way. It hurts, but you’ll kinda like it.

CAN I USE A NUMBING CREAM?

Any sort of numbing creams are really not recommended as they change the integrity of your skin. Numbing creams usually only last about a half hour before wearing off, which really isn’t long enough to get that much work done anyways.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW TATTOO?

Every shop has their own recommended care methods. You will be given an instruction aftercare after you’ve been tattooed.
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Leave the plastic wrap off after around 30 minutes then gently wash your tattoo with warm water. Gently pat dry with a clean paper towel. Do not rub back and forth.
2. Use only clean water to clean up, without any soap or chemical treatments in first 3 days. Do not wrap it with anything else again.
3. After 3 days, please apply a very thin layer of Vitamin A&D ointment on your tattoo, do not make it oily. Continue to apply 1-2 times per day until your tattoo is completely healed.

Your tattoo needs oxygen to heal so let it breathe, peeling and flaking is a normal part of the healing process. Never pick or scratch your tattoo while it is healing - this will damage it.

You should not go to swimming pools, beaches or hot tubs for at lease 2 weeks.

Avoid direct sunlight. After healing process, you can use sunscreen over it when spending long periods in direct sunlight. Do not put any sunscreen on the tattoo that has not fully healed.

If you have any questions, please contact our studios. Happy healing!
