FAQ

WHERE DO YOU WORK?

+  I am currently based in Croí Dubh Tattoo which is a private all female studio. 

33 Malone Road, BT9 6RU. (Right next to the lovely Barking Dog Restaurant!)

It is city centre so parking can be a little bit of nightmare so please allow extra time. Free on street parking  is available. Alternatively the 8 bus runs that way and Botanic Train station is a short walk away.

PRICING?

+ I price by the piece, I think this is the fairest way for my clients and nobody is watching the clock. Always have no problem working with a budget though, I am well aware tattoos are a luxury.

If you are thinking of multiple pieces, a day sitting is the best option money wise for you. 

WHAT DON'T YOU DO?

+ Colour is a hard NO! 

+ Rarely do cover ups, my work is fine and not that heavy so its not suitable.

+ Don't tattoo hands, neck or face unless you are heavily tattooed.  

DEPOSIT?

Yes, once an appointment has been confirmed I require a £20 non-refundable booking fee. It is low because I believe in trust. You trust me to tattoo you, I trust you not to waste my time.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

If you cancel/reschedule within 48 hours your deposit is lost, if you give notice no problem transferring to a new date. If you no - show me, that is you blacklisted! The deposit covers the idea that I have agreed on at the time of booking, if you change your mind on what you want a new deposit will be required. This covers the time used already. 


WHEN DO I SEE MY DESIGN?

I dont show any designs prior to the appointment but have no problems making small changes on the day. As long as you tell me exactly what you want when booking shouldn't be any problems.

HOW CAN I PAY?

I can take cash, PayPal or bank transfer but please be aware we dont have a card machine in the studio.

CAN I GET A VOUCHER?

Nope, but you can buy merchandise HERE if you want!

WHAT DO I DO BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?

Make sure you eat beforehand and bring some sugary drinks/ snacks with you.

  • A good nights sleep is a must!
  • Wear comfortable clothing that also allows me access to the area.
  • Have clean skin, so no fake tan! If you think the skin is rough in the area, you can exfoliate on the lead up to your appointment. You dont need to shave the area, I will do that.
  • Avoid consuming alcohol the night before, trust me on this one!
  • Don't be nervous, promise you will be totally fine!

WHAT DO I DO AFTER?

So all artists have their own aftercare so it can get confusing! But what I recommend is:

Keeping the clingfilm on for a minimum of 2 hours, take it off, warm soapy wash, pat it dry and then apply a very small amount of cocoa butter, just enough to make your skin shine. You should wash and apply cream twice a day for 2 weeks. If its heavier work you can rewrap for the first night. They can get a bit gross! It will get dry, flakey and itchy usually about day 5/6. DO NOT SCRATCH!!

While its healing, NO swimming, saunas, sun exposure, fake tan, waxing, shaving, exfoliating that area! If you have any worries or issues though drop me a message!
