How much do Tattoo's cost?
The cost depends on many thing. Where the tattoo will be applied? How large or small is it? and How much detail is in it or is it solid black or colored? All of these things will affect the price.
 It's best to take a picture or any reference to the tattoo artist that you want to tattoo you.

How do I take care of a New Piercing?
[ Most piercing are taken care of by first washing your hands then removing dried crusty matter and completely cleaning around the hole of the new piercing.

Do this 3-5 times daily until healed.]

[I am unaware of anyone ever doing it. A tattoo needle goes about 1.5mm deep. In about 98% of women the breast tissue is able to receive a tattoo but 2% of women have to wait until new tissue grows thicker.]

Do I have to take my navel piercing out if i get pregnant?

[No. We carry jewelry made for pregnant women. Its long and flexable, so it moves with you. You can wear it as long as you want. Its best to leave something in your belly button to strengthen it so you have less chance of getting a stretch mark thru your piercing.]

Can I bring in my own design?
[Yes or we can design one for you.]

Why is my tattoo or piercing taking longer to heal?
[Everybody is different and different parts of the body heal differently. If you take medication or drink alcohol this will slow down the healing process.
If it's a piercing, clean it more often with Bactine or Band-aid hurt free antiseptic wash. If you've changed the jewelry with anything other than what it was pierced with put the original jewelry back into it and don't change it until its healed. Changing the jewelry before its healed is the #1 cause for problems. If your tattoo is on a bendable area like a wrist, stomach, neck,  knee or elbow these areas takes longer also. If the tattoo got scratched or hit,  the area is furthest from the heart therefore getting the least amount of blood flow or circularization and taking the longest to heal ]

[Yes, we can make your areolas darker and larger but the actual nipples can't be made larger.]

What's the difference between getting pierced with a piercing gun vs. being pierced by hand?
[Getting pierced by hand is much safer and more accurate. When getting pierced by hand the instruments or tools are all new and/or sterile, the gun is not. The gun is made of plastic so it can not be sterilized.  The gun is made for the thickness of an earlobe and does not accommodate for swelling and different size earlobes. It forces an earring thru the flesh usually doing tremendous damage to the piercing and causing scar tissue to grow around the new piercing. A gun is made for one size earring but people put many different sizes in them, that's why they usually get jammed or go in crooked. The metal they use to make piercing gun earrings is only hypo-allergenic not implant grade there's a big difference between the two. According to State of Calif. and the Dept. of Health, Implant grade Titanium or Implant Grade Stainless Steel are the only things anyone should use in a new piercing.]

Do you have to have surgery to remove dermal anchors?
[You Do Not need surgery to remove dermal Anchors or Single Point Piercing. They come out without any cutting or incision.]
Back to Top

When is it ok to change jewelry?
[You can let a professional piercer change it before its healed because they will know to use implant grade metal. You shouldn't try this yourself until its completely healed. If you put something that isn't implant grade titanium or implant grade stainless at best it could get very painful and irritated looking, at worst your piercing will reject. You can't tell by looking at jewelry if its implant grade but your body knows. Titanium is lighter in weight and costs a little more than stainless steel but it will heal faster with commercially pure titanium.]

I'm getting a bump on my cartilage piercing. How can I get rid of it?
[After the last cleaning of the day apply pure Tea Tree Oil with a Q-tip nightly for 30-60 days or until the bump goes completely away. You will no its working when it starts to peel. It should dry and peel layer by layer until it's flat again. This won't work for old bumps only newly formed ones. You can get Tea Tree Oil at CVS Drugs or Trader Joes.]
