Who is the best tattoo artist?


Today it's me.




Can you do this?


If this is technically doable, I can do it. Now if I am going to do it involves other questions. Keep in mind that I will not copy any work from other artist. If you present me an image it will only be considered as a reference for the creation of your own tattoo. If I don't believe that what you want is technically viable or if I know it will not age well, I'm not doing it. I don't care how beautiful the pinterest picture you stole is. Other thing to consider is that i don't make tribals or geometric figures that looks like made by a computer. There are lot's of other artists that can make it for you, just happens that I'm not one of those.




Can you fix this?


As my friend Cleomar Fogassa says, "almost everything is fixable". But it's impossible to tell before looking what is on the skin. Please use the contact form and send me a pictue of what you have.




I want a tattoo but i don't have any ideas. Do you have any design ideas?


Yes i do. If there's something I have on this world, it's ideas. First suggestion is always to make a mega super cool skull to celebrate life. If that's not your thing, we can always make a super mega cool abstract design based on your story. We chat a few minutes and I build your super mega cool abstract tattoo, directly on your body using brushes and you check on the mirror and we go adapting this exclusive super mega schön tattoo until we get to an agreement. Otherwise you can check the available designs here on the site or on my instagram profile. But there's no scenario were we are copying something, forget about it.




When can I see the design?


On the day of your appointment I'll show you a sketch or montage with the basis for your project. I then develop it with brushes on your skin so you can check on the mirror. In some cases I will apply a stencil on your skin so you can check on the mirror. Once we achieve agreement, we go with the needles. I will not send designs, sketches, drafts or aesthetics concepts in advance.




How the design is made?


Typically you tell me what ideas you have and point which direction we should take based in one or more works you saw i've done. From that I will follow the best workflow for the project. For the abstract projects I'll design with brushes and pens on your skin. Doing this we make sure that the tattoo flowns with your anathomy, it will move with you, belong to your body. For the figurative projects I will show you a sketch or montage on the day of the first session. The design will be based on the concept we previously agreed. I will not send any designs, drafts, sketchs or aesthetics concepts in advance. You saw the work I've done, it will be like that.




I already have the design I found on pinterest. When can we make it?


Nope. I can use the pictures you provide as a reference to create something new, not a copy.





General

Is it vegan?


As vegan as possible. The first point I consider when choosing any supply is it's quality for the final result of the tattooing process. All pigment, machinery, needle modules, disposable itens... claim to be vegan. But I'm not at the factories and I don't work on the regulation agencies, so we have to trust their word.




Does it hurt?


Yes. It hurts and doesn't wash off.




How should I prepare myself for the tattooing?


Make sure you are healthy. Make sure you are vaccinated. Avoid alcohol or ay drugs in the previous days. Take it easy with caffeine. Sleep well the night before. Get well feed and shower before going to your appointment. If the area where your tattoo is going to be executed have hairs and you want to shave it, make sure you do it well, if not we will have to do it again. Or just let it to be done at the studio. Don't burn your skin in the sun. Wear old clean confortable clothes If you have headphones, prepare a calm playlist so you can relax during the process. /we never know what will be playing in the studio. Reserve more time on your day than the expected for your session, so no hurry. The payments in the studio are cash only.




How is the after care of tattooing?


>>> Case 1 - If you left the studio with a second skin adhesive, keep it for 72 hours and then remove it. Clean the area with normal running water and foam from the soap you already using. Don't put soap directly on the tattoo, just the foam you make on your hands. Wash it off. Make it dry without rubbing, just pressing paper towel. Let it open for at least four hours before you start using the cream. The cream must be applied on small quantity and massaged untill it disapears on the skin no more than two times a day. Don't get it wet for too long. So no sauna, no swimming pool, no bathtub, no lake, no river, no ocean, no fountain... just normal regular shower everyday. Keep your tattoo protected from the sun. While the skin is too fragile you can't use sunscreen, so walk on the shade side of the street. Don't rip off the dry skin, it must fall by tself. Don't skretch your tattoo. In case of any doubt send me a message. >>> Case 2 - If you left the studio with a plastic film involving the tattoo, take it off after two hours and wash the area with running water and foam from the soap you are already using. Don't put soap directly on the tattoo, just the foam you make on your hands. Wash it off. Once the tattoo is clean, proceed to a thermal shock. Apply warm water over it for five seconds then cold water. After this, dry the tattoo carefully without rubbing, just pressing it with paper towel. Let it open for at least four hours before you start using the cream. The cream must be applied on small quantity and massaged untill it disapears on the skin no more than two times a day. Don't get it wet for too long. So no sauna, no swimming pool, no bathtub, no lake, no river, no ocean, no fountain... just normal regular shower everyday. Keep your tattoo protected from the sun.
