FAQ

OZ Tattoos

How do I get prepared for a tattooing session?

One should not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs for at least 24 hours before getting a tattoo. Please come well rested and on a full stomach. You could even carry some juice or energy drink with you.

How do I choose a design?

The more research and homework you have done, the easier it is for us to guide you in the right direction. We do tattoo counselling wherein we try to understand the person and his/ her personality a little bit so that we can suggest what will look best on him/her and be comfortable to carry. We believe in custom work and can sketch a tattoo for you based on your concept.

What size it should be?

Remember, a tattoo changes through time. Fifteen years from today your tattoo will look different as your skin goes through the regular aging process! If your tattoo is small with intricate details and lines too close to each other, in fifteen years it may turn into a big blur that you won’t be able to recognize. We will help you decide on an appropriate size.

Will the colour come on my body?

Black ink comes on every skin type most easily. The brightness of the other colours will depend on the complexion and texture of your skin.

Does it hurt?

Getting a tattoo can hurt, but the level of pain can vary. Some people describe the tattoo sensation as “tingling”. It all depends on your pain threshold, how efficient the person using the tattoo machine is, and where exactly on your body you’re getting the tattoo. Professionals know how deep to pierce the skin to create a permanent line

Which part hurts the most?

Is there an age limit?

The minimum age to get a tattoo is 18 years. If you are younger than 18 years, you need to obtain approval from your parents or legal guardian. ID Proof is mandatory.

Of course! We will be happy to look at your existing tattoo and give advice on what can be done. Remember, though, that the darker and bolder the existing tattoo, the more difficult it is to cover up. Your new tattoo will be bigger than the original one.
