We do not send out drawings at all, and all viewings are done in the studio. Trust us, it's easier that way for everyone involved.

Not really! We always recommend a good nights sleep and a good lunch before you come by. Make sure you're not hung over or feeling sick and you'll be fine.

The legal age to be tattooed in Hong Kong is 18. We do not budge on that and there are no exceptions for parental consent.

Nope, but our good friends at Brilliance Bay are by far the most experienced body piercers in Hong Kong. Give them a google and go there.
- HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY TATTOO? -
You're going to remove any bandages after a minimum of 6 hours, and gently clean your tattoo with warm water. Mild soap is fine (avoid heavily scented soap)
Using clean hands, wipe away any excess blood, plasma, ink and ointment. Pat your tattoo dry. DO NOT SCRUB IT! gentle is the word of the day
Apply a thin layer of aftercare lotion 2 -3 times a day until your tattoo is fully healed. Typical healing time will be between 7 - 14 days.
Do not pick or scratch your tattoo!
Avoid swimming or soaking your tattoo and avoid direct sunlight until you're fully healed.
