Appointment info & Hints

We need photo ID every visit from adults being pierced or tattooed –
this includes touch ups. You must be 18+ to get a tattoo.
We need photo ID for minors being pierced – something with a picture and their name.
We need a parent to be present and the parent must have photo ID and MB Health card with both the child and their name on the same card.
We will not tattoo or pierce women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
We will pierce children’s ears when they are able to ask for it on their own, usually around 4 or 5 years of age.

Wear appropriate clothing for your tattoo. Enable easy access to the area. Be aware that ink may stain clothing.

DO NOT drink alcohol the night before your tattoo. (Get rest).

Tattoos take energy, so eat a meal before your tattoo. Bring a snack if your tattoo will take longer than three hours.

Children can be a distraction. (Get a sitter).

Exfoliate, moisturize and shave (be careful not to nick yourself) the area the day before your tattoo.

If your tattoo appointment exceeds 2 hrs, please take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of your vehicle – bring a friend to plug the meter for you, use an Impark lot, get a ride or find another suitable means of transportation.
