Can I see the artwork before my appointment?


The artists of Premium tattoo do not release original artwork prior to the scheduled appointment time. Any redesign needs will be accommodated the day of the scheduled appointment, even if this causes us to reschedule another appointment time for the application of the finalized design.


What should I do the day of my appointment?


On the day of your appointment you will need to be showered, well-rested, fed, and wearing clean clothing that will be easy to work around. Please bring a state-issued I.D. on the day of your tattoo appointment. Be advised that the tattoo process may stain clothing. It is important that the clothing, bedding, and towels that will be used during the healing process also be laundered so as to prevent risk of bacterial infection. For this reason we also advise staying out of the garden, avoiding contact with animals and absolutely no water activities.


How do I care for my tattoo?


The sun can damage your tattoo during the healing process. For this reason, please wear clean loose fitting cotton clothing to protect your tattoo and allow it to breathe.
See the Aftercare Instructions page for more information.
