(please see more details below)
It's always best to wear comfortable clothing, so that you can be as relaxed as possible during your appointment. Please keep in mind the location of your tattoo and chose clothing that allows easy access to this area.
Depending on the area, a t-shirt, tank top or strappy top will work wonderfully.
If we are going onto the shoulder, please wear a loose or sleeveless top, where we can manipulate the straps if necessary.
Depending on the area, baggy trousers or shorts should work perfectly. You are more than welcome to bring shorts along to change into at the studio.
This area is a little more intimate, we will make sure you're feeling as comfortable as possible. Usually loose shorts will work for this area. Depending on the placement, you may need to be in underwear
Feet are easy to access of course, but leaving with a fresh foot tattoo is a little more difficult. Please wear slides, sandals or loose fitting shoes to wear comfortably after your appointment.
The neck can be an awkward area to get to, we'll make you as comfortable as possible using cushions and taking small frequent breaks. Simply wear a top with a low cut neckline, where we can access this area easily.
This area is a little more intimate, we will make sure you're feeling as comfortable as possible. We have drape sheets and screens in the studio to protect your privacy.
To access this area easily, please wear a low cut or strapless top. Depending on the size and placement, sometimes we may need to use a drape sheet or pasties.
This area is a little more intimate, we will make sure you're feeling as comfortable as possible. We have drape sheets and screens in the studio to protect your privacy for large scale pieces.
FULL BACK PIECE
When working on a full back piece project, I recommend bringing along a zip-up sweater or over sized button-down shirt. With these items of clothing, we can spin them around to reveal your back whilst still keeping privacy in the front.
Depending on the area, an over sized top should work perfectly. We can manipulate the top for easy access to the area and use a drape sheet to cover you comfortably.
These areas can be more intimate, we will use drape sheets and screen covers to protect your privacy. In some cases you may need to use pasties or remove the bra, in this case we will discuss how you will feel most comfortable and create a privacy for you.
If you need to bring clothing along to change into,
that's no problem at all!
We have a large bathroom area where you can change comfortably.
