Q. How much do tattoos cost in Blackpool?

A. We get asked this question on a daily basis. The prices vary depending on what you want and are based on size, level of detail and shading etc. Back



Q. Do tattoos hurt?


A. There is always some level of pain involved but most people can take it quite easily (that’s why you see so many people with tattoos). With most of our customers their anticipation of the pain is generally worse than what it actually is. Back



Q. Where is the most painful place to get a tattoo?

A. Everyone is different so there is no straight answer. The most commonly complained about are tattoos done on the ribs, feet and stomach. The best thing to do is to get the tattoo exactly where you want it rather than just going for the least painful place. Back



Q. Do you charge by the hour for tattoos?

A. We only charge by the hour for large tattoos that require more than one sitting. The hourly rate will depend on which artist you choose as they work at different rates and speeds. Back



Q. Why is there a minimum charge of £35?

A. The minimum charge is to cover the cost of the materials used, the clinical waste costs, the cleaning costs and artist labour per customer. For every customer we use pre-packed single use tattoo needles, single use tattoo ink, single use tattoo ink caps, disposable rinse cup, water solidifier powder (to dispose of liquids), disposable razor, tattoo lubricant (Hustle Butter, Inkeeze etc), tattoo machine bag, clip cord sleeve, single use gloves, kitchen roll, carbon paper, tracing paper (unless it’s a free hand tattoo), tattoo bandage, consent form, aftercare form. We also have to use high grade disinfectant produts after every customer and we get charged a high fee to dispose of all the waste that is accumulated per tattoo. As well as all those things we have to pay for per tattoo, we have to pay a tattoo artist for their time and skills. £35 is cheap regardless of how small or easy the tattoo is! Back



Q. Do I need to make an appointment to get a tattoo?

A. You DO NOT need an appointment unless you want to come in on a specific day at a specific time. Appointments require a deposit of £10 - £50 depending on the size of the tattoo you are getting. Back



Q. Can I bring in my own tattoo design?

A. Yes, we are more than happy to do custom work. Back



Q. Can you design a tattoo for me?

A. If you have a good idea of what you want and where on your body you want it then we can design a tattoo for you. Back



Q. Do you use numbing cream?

A. We strongly recommend that you do not use numbing cream before your appointment as our artists may decline to tattoo you. If you feel that you need to use numbing cream then you must speak to your artist before booking.

Q. How do I look after my tattoo?

A. There are different strategies based upon your skin type, tattoo placement and products used. We will give you the best aftercare instructions for you on the day of your tattoo. Back



Q. What aftercare products should I use on my tattoo?

A. We recommend AfterInk, it is available to buy at our studio.



Q. Do you finish other tattooists work?

A. If the original tattooist has done a bad job and you don’t want to go back OR your tattooist is no longer available then YES. If the work is good and the original tattooist is still available then we recommend that you go back to them.  Be aware that different tattooists use different inks and have different styles. If you are happy with your tattooist then stick with them. Back

Q. Do you re-colour old tattoos?

A. Most tattoos can be re-coloured (assuming you can still make out what they are supposed to be) but they will usually need re-outlining too so it would be like having the whole tattoo done again. Back



Q. Can tattoos be removed?

A. Yes. Laser tattoo removal is the most effective and safest way to remove unwanted tattoos (unless you have them covered up with another tattoo). Laser tattoo removal is done in stages with 4-5 week gaps in between to allow healing time. The amount of sessions you have depends on the size of the tattoo and the colours used.


Q. Where do you get your tattoo equipment/supplies?

A. We have our own tattoo supplies shop next door to our studio, we supply to many other tattoo shops also.
