When cared for appropriately, your new tattoo should fully heal within 4 – 6 weeks. However, everyone is different and we all heal in different ways and within different timeframes.
The length of the tattoo healing process depends on how big it is, where it’s located on your body and the design. For example, a tattoo with heavy colouring-in or shading will take longer to heal than a simple fine line design.
We do not tattoo individuals who are pregnant. This is for the health and safety of the individual and their unborn child.
We do not use piercing guns for any piercings, including ear lobes. This is because they cannot be sterilised to our standard of excellence. The use of piercing guns often damages the tissue which delays healing or may lead to permanent damage.
Yes, you can use numbing cream to reduce the pain of getting pierced, however, we advise against it. We do not sell or apply numbing cream for you, but you can purchase this from the chemist. We can show you how to use it and how long to put it on for.
Like a regular tattoo, there will be some level of pain depending on where you get your cosmetic tattoo on the face. Depending on your individual pain tolerance, you can use a numbing cream to help with the pain. We do not sell or apply numbing cream for you, but you can purchase this from the chemist.
Cosmetic tattoos are semi-permanent tattoos that generally last about one year, but you can get them touched up at regular intervals to make them last longer. The better you take care of your cosmetic tattoo, the longer it will last.
When you arrive at our Celebrity Ink™ studio, you’ll be greeted by a team member. We’ll make sure our records are up to date and all waivers are signed. You will then meet with your artist.
Once your design is finalised, your artist will place the stencil on your body in the desired location and you will need to check the placement in the mirror. If you’re happy with the size, location and placement, a member of our sales team will discuss and ensure that everything is correct – i.e. size, design, specific details, spelling, colour, and they will confirm the final price with you prior to your artist commencing the tattoo.
If at any stage, you start to feel uncomfortable, please notify your artist or a member of the sales team.
Our team can then provide you with an extra cushion, a cover for modesty, water or discuss any fears you might have.
Upon completion of your tattoo, your artist will take some finished photos to be used as record for the studio. Please note – these may also be used as marketing material on our social media platforms.
Your artist will then proceed to wrap up your tattoo using the correct Celebrity Ink™ process, whilst explaining the correct aftercare procedure and products available for you to purchase in studio.
Finally, you will be accompanied by our artist to the front counter where you will be greeted by a member of our sales team. This is where you will complete your sign out form, purchase any merchandise/aftercare and make final payment. It is also at this stage where you can re-book your next tattoo appointment.
Depending on the region and location of the studio, car parking may be available in the shopping centre. However, we recommend that you plan ahead and check this information for yourself. We suggest you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment start time so your artist can get started on time.
