The pigments are housed in the dermis.
The tattoo needle points the skin about 100 times per second in order to deposit the ink in a region of 1.5 to 2 millimeters below the surface of the skin.
The tattoo needle passes through the epidermis into the deepest layer or dermis. Nerves and blood vessels are located here, which is why a tattoo can hurt.
Being able to count on a team of 5 in-house tattooers and 2 guests, we are able to guarantee minimum waiting times.
Major allergies depend on the type of color used. In fact, from a study done on a sample of tattooed people, the percentage of people allergic to black ink is decidedly low, while colored ink, especially red ink, gives more problems. It is therefore recommended to make a tattoo only in black and gray.
It is always advisable to seek advice from your doctor.
Yes, we do cover ups, but it is not always possible to do them.
Before a tattoo it is not recommended to practice motor activity and to take alcohol, as excessive vasodilation during the session can lead to excessive bleeding.
Yes, there are anesthetic creams that can be used during the tattoo session, but we do not recommend their use since the skin is harder to treat and not very receptive, thus prolonging the work.
DAY 1: remove the original film at least three hours after the end of the tattoo, wash with water and neutral soap (Saugella, Infasil, etc.). Dry with paper towels, apply BEPANTHENOL, cover it again with plastic wrap. If the tattoo was finished late in the evening the film does not necessarily have to be changed until the next morning.
DAY 2,3: keep the tattoo continuously covered, even at night. Change the film three times a day (morning, noon and evening). During each change, wash with soap and water and pat dry, being careful not to rub. Then apply a thin layer of Bepanthenol. Put on a new film, stop with surgical tape so that it does not move.
DAY 4: remove the film, apply Bepanthenol until all the thin crusts fall over the days. After the tattoo is completely peeled, use a body cream until the skin regenerates completely. The skin remains extremely dry for weeks, or for months, after healing, for this you need body cream.
The tattooed skin cannot be exposed to the sun or to the lamp neither before, during or after the realization of the tattoo. If exposure to the sun is inevitable, you must use a 50+ water-resistant sunscreen, but only when the skin has already healed, more or less two weeks after applying the tattoo. During this period the skin must be covered with film. Any kind of physical exercise should be avoided, due to sweating. If it is the leg that is tattooed it is advisable to stay in bed and keep it up at least during the first day. During healing, it is forbidden to go to the sauna. Beaches, spas and all situations where there is a risk of infection due to tattooing should be avoided. It is also advisable to take vitamin C.
