Q. Does it hurt?
Q. How much?
A. Less than waxing, more than a mosquito bite!
Q. I'm 16. If I bring a parent or guardian with me can I get one of those cool koi fish tattoos?
A. Sorry, but no. Lucky 13 Tattoo has a firm policy that you must be 18 years of age or older to take advantage of our services.
Q. Is it safe?
A. Your new tattoo will be applied using new sterilized needles and modern techniques. Every precaution is taken to aid you in healing and getting a lifetime’s enjoyment from your tattoo. Still, there are things you need to be aware of to ensure a safe tattoo experience. See more below!
Q. How long does it take to heal?
All tattoos heal at different rates. Diet, rest, and stress all have an effect on how quickly your tattoo will heal. Your tattoo will be applied using sterile equipment and sanitary practices. It will be your responsibility to care for it thereafter. Lucky 13 Tattoo can not assume liability for lack of proper follow-up care on your part, or your body’s healing rate.
Q. What should I expect while healing?
A. A tattoo is a wound to your skin, in which you may experience some bruising, scaring, bleeding skin and/or blood infection, nerve and tissue damage. This new tattoo must be protected during the healing process. Clean dressing and a topical ointment arc required during the initial healing process. Allowing the new tattoo to be rubbed by rough clothing, scratching the tattoo or picking at the healing layer may allow microbes entrance as well as allow the inks to seep from the tattoo. Lucky 13 Tattoo can not assume liability for abuse or mistreatment your tattoo received during the healing process. See the Aftercare PDF for more information.
Q. Might allergies be an issue?
A. It is possible to be allergic to anything including tattoo inks. Similarly, some people react better to one brand of topical ointment then another. Lucky 13 Tattoo can not assume responsibility for how your body reacts to the inks or dressing products used for your new tattoo. See our Health Information PDF for more detailed information.
Q. What if I decide I don't like my tattoo and want it removed. Can you help?
A. A tattoo is a PERMANENT body marking. Tattoo removal can be very painful, expensive, and may require medical treatment. This type of removal may also cause scarring. If you are not 100% committed to being tattooed, do not get tattooed.
Q. Are there medical conditions that prohibit my ability to get a tattoo?
A. If you have hemophilia, hepatitis, H1V, diabetes or any medical condition which that may affect your blood circulation or your immune system, we require authorization from your physician prior to tattooing.
