WHAT FORMS OF ID DO YOU ACCEPT?

We accept photo ID such as drivers license, Passport or Key Pass as legal forms of ID for both parties.
We will also accept a Medicare card as ID for a parent or legal guardian.

HOW DO YOU STERILISE YOUR TATTOO AND PIERCING EQUIPMENT AND BODY JEWELLERY?

We use autoclave sterilisers. These use steam and pressure to kill germs. 
We also use new needles for each piercing, and new needles or cartridges for each tattoo - these are medically sterilised and sealed, then disposed of immediately after. Most other tattoo equipment is single use and is also disposed of after the tattoo.

DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Walk-in's are always welcome! If you have the ability to book in however, it is always recommended so as not to disappoint! 

HOW MUCH IS THIS TATTOO GOING TO COST?

Tattoos will vary in price according to many different factors. Size, complexity, location and much more can all play a factor, so best to speak to your tattoo artist and discuss with them if you need an approximate quote.

DO YOU USE PIERCING GUNS?

We NEVER use piercing guns and will only ever pierce with needles.
Piercing guns cannot be sterilised properly between clients which can lead to infections.

HOW LONG DO I NEED TO WAIT BEFORE I CAN CHANGE MY JEWELLERY?

You should wait until your piercing has completely healed before you change your jewellery. 
You may put yourself at risk of infection or rejection if you don't wait. Healing time depends on what type of piercing you get. 
Speak to the piercer about your specific piercing as healing times may be different.

WHAT IS YOUR BODY JEWELLERY MADE OF?

We have a wide range of body jewellery in different materials, for use after your piercing has healed. 
For freshly done piercings, we use 316L surgical steel (available in a range of colours). 
Its composition and the treatment process it endures states that it is great for new piercings in 99.97% if the population. 

CAN I BRING MY OWN JEWELLERY TO GET PIERCED WITH?

Unfortunately not, we will only pierce with our own jewellery.

CAN YOU CHANGE MY JEWELLERY FOR ME?

Sure can! It costs nothing when you purchase jewellery from us on the day, however there is a $5 fee any other time.

    HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN WASH MY NEW TATTOO?

    We would recommend to give your new tattoo a wash with some warm soapy water when you get home (approximately 2 - 3 hours). Make sure your hands are clean, and then apply your aftercare as instructed by your artist.
