Before my Tattoo

Consultation & Design: (30 min) Please bring any photos of tattoos that catch your eye. As artists, we will work with you to shape and design your cosmetic tattoo to highlight your natural features. From there, we choose a pigment match based on your skin tone and hair colour.

Pre Appointment: For best results, we recommend taking the following precautions prior to your cosmetic tattoo appointment:

  • Stop using skin thinners (vitamin A, glycolic acids, exfoliation) 2 weeks prior to your appointment
  • Do not consume alcohol, caffeine or blood thinners (aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, Niacin, warfarin, etc.) 48 hours before your procedure, to avoid excess bleeding. Your doctor must be consulted first before you stop any medication.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your procedure. If you arrive for your appointment with a new tan or a sunburn, you will need to reschedule and will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from a sunburn, it will take the tattoo pigment off with it.
  • Some cosmetic procedures should be completed prior to your brow tattoo: eyebrow waxing and shaping (2 days in advance), eyebrow tinting (1 week in advance), and cosmetic injections or fillers (3 weeks in advance).
