1 Is it safe to get a tattoo or piercing ?
Yes , completely safe If you go to a professional tattoo shop where the proper tattoo equipment is used. Decades ago there was concern about getting hepatitis C from tattoos, but this is something all professionals are very conscious of nowadays. If new needles are used for each and every customer , there is no chance of contracting a blood-borne disease. You can be assured that Sandy Tattoo Studio requires each artist to hold client safety as the first and foremost priority.
2Does it hurt?
Yes it hurts. But definitely not as much as you think , there are lots of people walking around with tattoos and piercings so it's not unbearable. Actually, getting a tattoo is not very painful nowadays because modern tattoo equipment is such that the needles go in and out of your skin very quickly. You'll be completely able to carry on a normal conversation while getting your tattoo.Getting tattooed or pierced is a very personal experience. Whether it hurts or not depends mostly on the individual's pain threshold and the location on the body. The general consensus is that it feels like a "hot scratch" on the skin. Feel free to discuss this with your artist , they will be happy to advise you ! The end result always outweighs any pain felt during the process , so stay positive and enjoy your new ink !
3What kinds of tattoo designs can I choose from ?
When it comes to today's tattoo designs, the choices are almost endless ! Your first step is to browse some web sites - just do a Google search for "free tattoo designs". With all the social sharing sites like Facebook and many specialty tattoo blogs that focus on designs in desired niche , the inter-web is one of the best resources out there searching for inspiration. Chances are, you'll be overwhelmed by the sheer variety - there's tribal tattoos , Gothic tattoos , traditional tattoos , biker tattoos , Japanese tattoos , Chinese tattoos , the possibilities are endless. Think about what inspired you to want a tattoo in the first place. Chances are, you saw a tattoo you liked on someone else - what style was it ? What did you like about it ?
4Where can I have a tattoo placed?
Where to place a tattoo is , and always should be , your own decision. Don't be influenced by "it'll hurt less there" or "it'll be cooler here", get the tattoo where YOU want it !!!! General advice on placement is that you should consider what kind of clothes you wear , work and social , whether you would like it to show all the time or only when you want to show it off.
5What does the term "single-use" needles mean ?
That means we NEVER EVER re-use or re-sterilize a needle. When you are tattooed , the needle we use will be brand new and sterile. After your tattoo , that needle will be discarded. Everything (ie: pigments, ink caps, razors, etc.) are all discarded after each tattoo.
6What about inks and other materials ?
All ointments , pigments, gloves , ink cups , razors , etc. used to apply your tattoo are discarded after use. Nothing is reused , this eliminates any possibility of contamination of materials.
7 Can I bring my own picture or drawing for my tattoo ?
Yes. This tattoo will be on you permanently so we want to be sure you are totally happy. Bring anything you think might help to capture exactly what you're looking for your tattoo to reflect. We also have plenty of reference books available for ideas. No matter whether you know exactly what you want or don't have a clue , we will always work with you to design a custom piece of art that you will love.
8I've heard that tattoos don't look so good once you start to age. Is that true? Are there any places where you should avoid getting a tattoo ?
It's true that skin and flesh may sag in some places as you age, but that doesn't necessarily mean your tattoo will look bad. Just use your common sense. You know roughly where skin tends to sag as you get older , so don't get a large tattoo in those areas. A small one is usually okay , though , and there are several places where you can get a tattoo that won't change substantially over the years - such as your ankle , shoulder or upper arm. These are the most popular tattoo locations at any rate. Keep in mind that any tattoo may fade over time though , and you may need to get it re-inked. Colors tend to fade faster than black.
9 I have a tattoo that's really bad , can it be fixed ?
Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos-even really bad ones so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we don't think it can be successfully covered we will let you know and work with you on what options you do have so you will ultimately be happy. We never do a tattoo just to make a buck. This is a really good group of guys who take tremendous pride in their work and art. Be assured that the artwork on your body and how you feel about it is a reflection on them - meaning your satisfaction is VERY important !
10Can I get my old tattoo covered ?
Not every tattoo can be covered , however it is possible in many cases. Some of the major deciding factors are the level of fading of the existing work , and the state of the skin in the cover-up area (such as the presence of scar tissue from previous tattoo work). Your artist will be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.
11 I have a medical problem. Can I still get pierced ?
People with medical problems are highly advised to discuss the issue with your personal physician and get a doctor's note that it is OK to perform the piercing. We reserve the right to refuse a piercing service to someone with a medical problem that would risk the customer's health.
12Are your tattoo artists certified ?
Yes , all of our tattoo artists are certified.
13 Can I get HIV or AIDS by tattooing ?
HIV is a very delicate virus and does not last long outside of the body. Nor is it spread through casual contact. Generally , the virus is transmitted when sufficient quantities of blood are introduced into the body of another. The structure of a tattoo needle does not lend itself to HIV transmission. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) there has never been a case of HIV transmission from tattooing.
14I've heard that getting tattoos can be addictive. Is that true ?
It isn't true in the sense of a real addiction , but it is a fact that people who already have one tattoo are more likely to get another one or so. It is possible to get "hooked" on the excitement of getting a tattoo , just as some people get "hooked" on shopping , but that's not a real addiction. Most people who end up with multiple tattoos do so simply because they like them.
