Your safety is something we take extremely seriously, which is why we hold ourselves to the highest health and safety standards. No needles are reused and everything is sterilized. For more information, please refer to our Sterilization section.
Yes it hurts! But not that much, or else we wouldn’t be tattooing so much every day! The feeling is comparable to a cat scratch, but it lasts for a longer amount of time. Don’t worry, you will survive!
The after-tattoo pain is comparable to a sunburn.
The only person who can answer this question is yourself since pain is relative to everyone, no matter where you get tattooed. Keep in mind that pain is temporary, but a tattoo is permanent, so do it where you want it and not where it hurts the least.
No, we highly recommend that you don’t use numbing cream since it makes the skin stiffer, which makes it harder to tattoo (it is harder to pierce the skin with the needles). Usually, using numbing cream will make the healing process more complicated and you will have more touch-ups to do. Also, some people might react to the cream.
To choose a tattoo design, you should reflect on your personality, your passions and your interests. Start
by looking up online or in books/portfolios to get some inspiration and eventually references in order to
assemble them all together. After that, you can start searching through your local tattoo parlors in order
to find an artist whose work suits your ideas and with who you’d like to book a consultation. Not all
parlors work the same way. To help you figure it out, we decided to create a small Quiz
Our minimum price is 60$ and the artist’s hourly rate is 125$ an hour. The artists will be able to give you an approximate time and price during your consultation appointment.
Of course! All our artists will make a custom drawing for their clients! You can bring some reference images for them to work with as well. Check out our artists’ portfolios and what they have done in the past.
Please keep in mind that they only make a drawing if you book a tattoo appointment with them. The artists won’t draw anything if you don’t have the intention to get it done in the future. The drawing will be available the same day as the tattoo appointment. Unless of an arrangement with the artist, no drawing will be sent by Facebook or by e-mail in advance.
You can come see us at the studio to get information from our receptionist. She will be able to tell you which artist would be better for your project and she’ll be able to book you an appointment that will suit both you and the artist’s availabilities. If you already know with which artist you’d like to work with, you can call us, send us a message on Facebook or send us an e-mail to book a consultation! We prefer having consultation appointments to make sure the artist understands what you want to get done and for you to be comfortable with your tattooist.
If you need to get a drawing done by one of our artists, we will schedule an appointments. Occasionally, we have space throughout the day for walk-ins if it’s something simple with no modifications on the drawing you provide. You can call at the studio to see our availabilities or pass by to book yourself a tattoo session! Please remember that we ask for a deposits in order to book a tattoo appointment!
Yes, if we have time, we do. Although, it is important to know that it’s not always the case. Our artists are booked in advance most of the time. Therefore it is better if you book an appointment. You can call us to know if we have availabilities today: (450) 933-9398.
You can book an appointment for a consultation by Facebook, e-mail or phone. However, for a tattoo appointment, you need to come at the studio since we ask for a deposit.
We ask for a deposit because it assures us of your commitment and full participation in the tattoo process. It also avoids us to work with people who aren’t serious about it. Deposits are NOT REFUNDABLE since the artist takes the time to prepare the project.
Each artist has a different waiting time. Call us at the studio to know how long you need to wait to get tattooed by the chosen artist at (450) 933-9398.
It is important to be well rested before getting a tattoo. We recommend you sleep well and eat enough before coming in.
The key is to keep it clean and well hydrated with ointment. For more information, please check our Aftercare section.
A tattoo takes between two and four weeks to heal. Once completely healed, the tattoo will no longer be lustrous nor glossy.
If need, we do offer free touch-ups for up to 6 months after the last tattoo session on our small tattoos. For larger projects, the touch-ups are done at each session to facilitate the flow of the project. They are therefore included in the tattoo time.
Touch-ups aren’t guaranteed and/or covered on the hands, feet, elbows and/or knees.
If you did not take great care of your tattoo, we can decide to charge you for the touch-ups.
No you can’t, and we won’t. As a professional parlor, we will not put you nor your child at risk. Even if the risks are very small, our professional insurances do not allow us to tattoo you if you are pregnant and/or breastfeeding and here’s why:
Reason #1: A tattoo is an open wound that need to be treated. During the healing process, some people come across some bacteria, dust, animal fur and develop an infection. The infection may be an issue for pregnant or breastfeeding woman if you need to take antibiotics to get rid of the infection.
Reason #2: When you get a tattoo, there is a bit of ink that goes in the blood and end up in the systemic circulation. It is not dangerous because it is immediately eliminated by the liver. On the other hand, it is possible that the ink crosses the placental barrier and / or can be secreted by the mammary glands. There is very little study on the subject, but we prefer not to take any chances.
Reason #3: The stress a tattoo can cause may make you feel bad and eventually faint. We do not want you to feel any sort of discomfort if you are pregnant.
Yes, you have to be 18+ to get a tattoo and we ask for a valid piece of I.D to everyone who seems to be younger than 25 years old.
Occasionally, we will tattoo a 16-17-year-old if the parents are ready to sign our consent form. BUT NOTE that each artist reserves the right to refuse to tattoo a minor (even if the parent is consenting). We do not tattoo minors at visible places and we do not do large tattoos on them (more than one hour). Here is an example of the kind of tattoo we would accept to do on a minor: His mother is deceased, and he want her name on a small not-too-visible place on his body. We will do it with pleasure because we know it's not something the person will regret. If he wants a tattoo of a music note because he likes music... He can probably wait till he's 18 years old!
The best time of the year to get tattooed is anytime but during the summer. Getting tattooed in the summer is a bad idea because you will need to avoid the sun and you won’t be able to go swimming for at least 3 weeks.
It is best to wait at least three weeks before exercising and/or submerging your tattoo under water.
It is possible to do a cover-up, but not all styles are a good fit for it. For more information on cover-ups, please refer to our Cover-up section.
It depends on the scar. The best thing is to pass by the studio so we can see the scar’s condition. We will be able to advise you whether it is better to tattoo on it or around it. Once again, please refer to our Cover-up section for more information on this matter.
