We have aimed to take into account all body shapes when choosing the furniture at the studio.
Clients can lay down on a massage table, recline on a tattoo chair or sit on a chair while getting tattooed. We have tried our best to accommodate all body sizes in our massage tables, client chairs and arms rests to provide a comfortable to tattooing experience for every body.

We try to use non-scented or mildly scented lotions, cleaning equipment and other materials in the tattooing process and at the studio. Please be mindful of people with hypersensitivity to perfumed products and retreat from using perfumed products during the day of your appointment.

We aim to be mindful of others’ allergies. We can offer substitute materials in the tattoo process if you are allegric to some materials that might be used in the tattooing process. We go through the tattoo ink incredients before starting tattooing. 
We use disposable nitrile gloves when tattooing which are safe for those with latex allergy.

Please let us know beforehand, if you are severely allergic to a specific food or an ingredient. This way we can avoid storing or using that allergen at the studio on the day of your appointment.

We try to keep the possible noise, music and the volume of the conversation at a level that is comfortable for everyone. We can turn off the music at your request.
