Preparation

To prepare for your tattoo appointment, we ask that you refrain from consuming alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours before your appointment date. Be sure to eat a good meal before your appointment and stay hydrated. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks for your appointment day. 

If you are feeling sick, have a skin rash, or have been in contact with someone ill please email us at info@secondsontattoo.com before arriving to your appointment. 

Appointment Day

On the day of your appointment, your design will be finalized. Utilizing your reference photos, the artist will create a custom drawing for you to approve. The artist will draw for up to 2 hours - any major design changes not discussed prior to the appointment will result in your appointment being rescheduled. After the design is created and approved, it will be made into a stencil and placed on your skin. Please plan to spend the entire day at the studio for full day sessions, this can mean 8-10 hours. For the safety of our staff and other clients, please do not bring guests with you to your appointment. 

After-Care

Your skin will go through several phases of healing after your appointment. Your artist will give you specific directions as each person is different - if you have questions please reach out to us via email at info@secondsontattoo.com

Do not scratch or peel your tattoo. Do not exercise for 3-4 days after your appointment, sweat and excessive movement will alter the healing process. Avoid direct sunlight for 2 weeks. Do not submerge your tattoo in the pool or ocean until completely healed. Do not use any medical ointments on the tattoo unless consulted by a doctor. After your tattoo is healed, we recommend using sunscreen on it when outside to reduce fading. 

Touch-Ups

After 2 months, if you need a minor touch up, please reach out to us via email to schedule a date. We provide this for no cost. If there is significant damage to your tattoo due to an accident or improper aftercare we will schedule you for a new tattoo session. *We do not work on tattoos from other studios/artists*
