How much will my tattoo cost?
The minimum price for a tattoo is 1500 CZK, which includes one correction – this is done one to three months after the tattoo is applied. The price depends on the complexity and size of the design. We can only provide an exact price once these are discussed. All consultations are FREE OF CHARGE. At a consultation, we will provide the exact price as well as the expected number of sessions for larger tattoos, with the option of dividing the price for each session separately.
Once the date of the first session is agreed, we require a deposit of 1200 CZK to 2500 CZK (it depends on size of tattoo) – this serves as reassurance that you are genuinely interested in our time and work. This deposit has to be paid within 5 days of booking the date of the first session. In case of non-payment, the booking is cancelled. This deposit is part of the final price for the tattoo. The deposit is non-refundable, however in case of serious complications, we can re-schedule the session for a different date.
If you are interested in a large tattoo, we will prepare a sketch just for you based on your requirements. This sketch costs 1500 CZK, 500 CZK we give you back in tattoo term (aplication).
If business days don’t suit you, we can individually agree on weekend sessions, with an additional cost of 1 500 CZK or 2 500 CZK based on tattoo size.
What equipment do you use?
In our tattoo studio we strive to offer our customers only the best! That’s why we use the best equipment in all aspects. Most of the material used is also vegan-friendly. All of the products used are original and certified for use in the Czech Republic and the EU.
For application, we use Cheyenne machines made in Germany and machine Inkjecta made in Australia and cartridge needles T-Tech made in Canada. The needles for this type come sterilised and are for single-use only. All the other tattoo equipment and accessories we use in our studio are also single-use.
Tattoo and hygiene?
We observe all the requirements given by the Hygiene Agency. The studio has a thoroughly compiled Act of Conduct (approved by the Hygiene Agency), which provides the guidelines for cleaning and disinfection of the studio. The Act of Conduct can be viewed at any time.
Dangerous (biological) waste is treated according to the guidelines for the disposal of contaminated waste, so as to avoid the potential spreading of undesirable microorganisms.
The health of the tattoo artist is as important as the health of the customer and that’s why we are vaccinated against hepatitis type A and B. We also use new single-use chair protectors for each customer. All our work is performed in surgical gloves and the instruments are packed in protective bags and foil, which we change regularly in order to minimise the risk of spreading any diseases.
All the tattoo equipment and accessories we use in our studio, including needles, are single-use.
How should I take care of my tattoo?
Immediately before and after tattooing, you should avoid the consumption of alcohol, coffee and drugs. These can create non-standard conditions for tattoo application and healing.
The tattoo artist will cover your new tattoo with a protective foil which needs to be removed after 3-4 hours. Hygiene is very important in this case – remove the foiled with washed hands and wash the tattoo with tepid water and soap. Be thorough and remove any blood or plasma residue which may have formed under the foil. This will prevent the formation of scabs which could extend the healing time!
After washing, dry the tattoo lightly with a tissue or a clean towel. Once the tattoo is dry, apply a small layer of special cream for tattoos - Pegasus Pro, Bepanthen Plus. Apply the cream at least twice a day for a minimum of two weeks.
If you see scabs forming on the tattoo or your skin starts peeling, do not scratch or remove the skin – this could damage the tattoo!
If the skin turns red or purulent, forms a rash or other unusual skin reactions, immediately contact our tattoo artist or our studio! No need to panic, this is mostly caused by insufficient care.
During the first two weeks following application, please avoid saunas, spas (even bathing), salt water and sports activities. Soaking and sweat can negatively affect the healing process and the protective layer of your skin!
Tattooing disrupts the UV protection of your skin, so you should avoid solariums and direct sunlight for at least a month following application. Otherwise this could cause loss of pigment, blurring of lines, but also inconvenient skin reactions! It is recommended to cover the tattoo or apply sunscreen with a high UV factor.
After the scab is removed or after the standard period of two weeks, you can switch from healing cream to regeneration creams, hemp creams or whatever ointment you prefer, but it is important to keep applying cream for at least a month. This will avoid the need for more substantial corrections.
Please come to our studio for a check-up two weeks after the tattoo is applied. The tattoo artist has years of experience and knows what the tattoo should look like. Some of the colour or lines may disappear – a correction (which is free of charge) is needed, and this is done at least a month after the original application. However, if you don’t visit us within three months, the correction will be chargeable. The longer the period between application and correction, the greater the scope of the correction will be.
Don’t forget that if you walk around with an incomplete (or uncorrected) tattoo, this creates a bad image not only for you, but also for our studio!
For more information, feel free to contact the tattoo artist or studio, we will happily answer all your questions?!
How should I take care of my tattoo in summer?
Contrary to various rumours, it is also possible to get a tattoo in summer. However, some rules must be followed:
Please avoid sunbathing the part of your body you would like to have tattooed at least two weeks before the tattoo is applied. The skin would otherwise be too irritated during application.
You should avoid any form of bathing until the scab from the tattoo falls off (see “How should I take care of my tattoo?”).
You should protect your new tattoo from the sun as much as possible! Until the skin in the tattooed area heals (which takes about a month), it has no protection against UV rays and there is a higher risk of contracting diseases (e.g. skin cancer). It is therefore important to initially cover the tattoo with fabric and later on you can start using sunscreen with a high UV factor (see “How should I take care of my tattoo?”).
It is always necessary to protect the new tattoo from dirt which can easily enter the tattoo and cause infection. During the spring and summer months there is also a higher concentration of flying particles such as pollen and dust, which can irritate the new tattoo.
It is also important to keep the tattoo dry and clean. In summer, your body produces an increased amount of sweat, so hygiene is especially important. It is also good not to stress your body with excess movement or sport.
Does tattooing hurt?
This depends on the location of the tattoo. There are known places where it hurts more and where it hurts less. It also depends on the size of the tattoo. A large tattoo can of course be divided into several sessions.
It is important to realise that everyone has a different pain threshold. It depends on how we approach the process and how we mentally agree with why we are having the tattoo done in the first place.
Whatever the modification, if it’s important for you, you will have to endure it :).
Can you tattoo over scars?
Tattooing over scars is possible. However, it is important to understand that the scar (the tissue it is made of) is just skin replacement, not new skin. The structure of the scar is different than that of normal skin.
The tattoo pigment can therefore behave and look different than in the surrounding healthy skin. We have plenty of experience with covering scars and we know how to work with the tattoo design and the scar itself so that the result looks good.
The scar tissue is usually as sensitive as the surrounding skin, but it can sometimes be somewhat more sensitive.
Is it possible to tattoo over birthmarks?
It is not recommended to tattoo over marks (pigment nevi), they need to be avoided. If this were to affect the resulting tattoo design significantly, you should get these removed by your dermatologist and then have these areas tattooed once they have healed.
Birthmarks tend to move around, so it is possible that a new one might appear under your tattoo or that it can disappear. Then it is possible to complete the tattoo in the area.
Can I get a tattoo if I have diabetes?
Diabetics can get a tattoo, but there may be complications during the healing process, as this disease can cause slower skin healing. It is therefore important to discuss your health and decision to get a tattoo with your doctor in order to avoid any complications. You need to let your tattoo artist know in advance as well. The stress experienced during the application can raise the sugar levels in your body.
If you experience any complications, please contact your tattoo artist or your doctor immediately!
Do you do temporary tattoos for 3 to 5 years?
This type of tattoo doesn’t actually exist and it is just a way to attract people to get a poor quality tattoo using permanent make-up pigment. These are colours that can indeed disappear after some time, but only in the facial area, as the skin on some parts of the face tends to change much faster than on other parts of the body. The pigment does fade on other parts of the body as well, but usually not entirely and also very irregularly. A tattoo applied this way looks very patchy and blurry after a couple of years, with some parts completely missing. These tattoos need to be corrected constantly and this can be traumatising both for you and your wallet.
In our studio we don’t perform this type of “skin ruining” and we don’t recommend it. Our opinion is that a tattoo should make your body more beautiful and this type of permanent make-up definitely does not serve that purpose. If you already have this type of tattoo and you don’t know what to do, don’t lose hope. We will gladly help you re-apply the tattoo permanently, so that you can proudly wear it without being ashamed.
What if I’m under the influence of prescription drugs or narcotics?
If you are ill and use antibiotics, it is not a good idea to put even more stress on your organism by applying a tattoo. The composition of some pharmaceuticals and antibiotics can even affect the way the pigment enters your skin. And of course just like any other prescription drugs, this can have an adverse effect on your physical and mental condition.
Alcohol significantly affects the results of tattoo application. Alcohol dilutes your blood and wherever the tattoo pigment is applied, the blood washes it out again. The washing out of blood and pigment is much more noticeable after the consumption of alcohol. It is recommended to avoid alcohol at least 24 hours prior to application. Customers who come to our studio under the influence of alcohol are sent straight home!
Please don’t use any narcotics before getting a tattoo either. If we discover this type of altered state, we will send you home. Do not test your tattoo artist or you may not be allowed to book another session. A person under the influence may not realise that everyone else can see it, but they can…please don’t make a fool of yourself, or us for that matter!
The application of the tattoo if you are under the influence might only make you feel worse and lead to complications, nausea or anxiety, so you wouldn’t feel more relaxed, but rather give your tattoo artist unnecessary concerns and affect the quality of your tattoo.
If you arrive under the influence, the deposit for your session will be forfeited!
Do I need to be 18 years old?
It is better if you are at least 18 year of age, as you won’t have to ask for your parents’ permission.
If you are under 18, you will need to fill in a form confirming your parents’ permission along with their signature. The form is available upon request. The other option is to bring your parents with you.
The minimum age limit for tattooing is 16.
Do you also draw tattoo sketches?
Yes we do. Appointment with the tattooer (in person or via phone) is needed to consult all features and details of the tattoo. We sketch designs for 1 500 CZK , in which 500 CZK is refundable (the day of tattoo application) .
If tattoo application (for any reason) does not happen~ 500 czk is not refundable.
Unfortunately there's been several times to happen that we invested hours of work into the Design (which was confirmed by the client) and the client did not show up at the studio on time (at all).
That means the client blocked the space and time for a person who REALLY wanted to get a tattoo earlier.
The waiting time for sketches is 2 – 3 months and after the completion of the sketch, we can book the first tattoo session.
How can I book an appointment?
If you would like to come for a consultation regarding a tattoo design, you need to give us a call on the day you would like to arrive. We sometimes have to sort something out away from the studio, so this way you’ll be sure not to miss us.
If you would just like a small tattoo, a phone call is enough to book a session. Please don’t ask us to call back – you want a piece of art from us, so the price for a short phone call shouldn’t be an issue for you :).
For more information, you can also send us an e-mail, text message or Facebook message. Unfortunately we aren’t available on all these platforms all the time, so a phone call is the most convenient for us. If we don’t pick up the phone, we are most likely in the middle of a tattoo session, so please try again later.
ATTENTION: We do not book sessions via e-mail, text or Facebook. This can be done only via phone or personally for one logical reason – it’s quicker for us and for you!
Are there waiting times?
Yes, there are. It is necessary to consult your idea with the tattoo artist as soon as you have your design or rough idea ready. Consultations do not need to be booked, just call in on the day you would like to come, so that you are sure we are in the studio. The consultation is an important part of the whole process – please prepare at least a theme or style, so that we can build on it. Don’t wait too long to book your first session, otherwise your waiting time will be longer. Feel free to contact us with any questions while you’re waiting for your first session.
Don’t forget that we are creating a piece of art – a tattoo in this case – together. It is therefore very important to communicate and give the design some time. If you’ve managed to wait your whole life, then a couple of months won’t kill you :).
If you want just a small tattoo where a sketch isn’t needed, then you can book your first session over the phone and the waiting time is about a month.
If you’re planning on getting a larger tattoo, we need to meet personally in the studio to write up an order for a sketch. The waiting time for the sketch is 2 – 3 months and then the date of the first session is booked.
The waiting time for your first session is 1 – 3 months, depending on the tattoo size, your working hours and the constellation of the stars :).
Do you do cover-up tattoos?
Yes, we do. Most tattoo artists do not do cover-up tattoos. The client has to realise that a cover-up is much more difficult and time consuming and the design has to be thought through much more carefully than for a “clean skin” tattoo.
The client has to realise that if they already have a tattoo, the cover-up has to adjust to the original tattoo and that it is ever more important to discuss the style and design of the cover-up with the tattoo artist.
Can I pay by card or cash only?
Now you can pay in cash or by credit card. We accept: Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Apple Pay, Google Pay.
Are there designs and styles that you don’t do, and body parts which you wouldn’t tattoo on?
We definitely wouldn’t tattoo extremist designs. Unfortunately everyone has a different view on what is extreme. It is therefore necessary to consult what we are willing to do and what we aren’t.
We don’t tattoo on the following body parts: genitals, lips, eyelids, tongue, eyeballs, fingers, palms and soles.
What rules should I observe before getting a tattoo?
It is important to observe some rules before going for a tattoo session.
One day before getting a tattoo, you should avoid:
-consumption of narcotics
-consumption of prescription drugs which could have strong side effects
All these substances can have an adverse effect on the tattooing process – the disrupted skin bleeds more because it is diluted by alcohol or coffee – more pigment is washed out and the tattoo heals more slowly. With prescription drugs and narcotics, you are more likely to feel nauseous or have feelings of anxiety.
Please be responsible for your body and mind one day in advance.
Can I come with a child/friend/dog?
It is important to realise that the job of a tattoo artist is not only to paint a pretty picture on your body, but also to be in the right state of mind for the whole process, to concentrate and to have a peaceful and quiet environment.
A friend, partner or a family member can naturally come with you, but in reasonable numbers :). Sometimes the whole family considers getting a tattoo a social event and wants to be present. It is important to let the client get a tattoo in peace – after all it’s quite personal and it should be a ritual of sorts. After getting the tattoo you can celebrate as much as you wish.
Because it is so important for the tattoo artist to have enough time and a quiet, peaceful atmosphere to be able to create the tattoo art together with the client, we do not let you bring your child to the session. If you do bring your child, your deposit will be forfeited and you can book another session. The main concern here is hygiene. To be honest – adults don’t spend that much time on the ground, touching everything like our children (unless we are at a wild party).
As for dogs and cats (or any other pets), sometimes we come across people who ask us if they can come with their pet. I hope we all can logically come to the conclusion that bringing an animal into a sterile environment is not possible.
And because we own two dogs, we can’t let your pet stay outside for safety reasons.
Do I need to book an appointment for my consultation or for the check-up after two weeks?
You don’t need to book appointments for consultations and check-ups. You need to call on the day you would like to come though. We sometimes have to sort something out away from the studio, so by calling us you can make sure we’re in when you arrive.
When is the best time to call the studio?
Please call only during our business hours – see the “Contact Us” tab. Even your tattoo artist needs to eat and sleep. If we don’t pick up, please call us later, as we are most likely in the middle of a tattoo session.
Also follow us on Facebook for the latest news. We always try let you know in advance if there are any major changes to our business hours – we travel to conventions abroad, decorate festivals etc. Although we are usually available on our mobile number during those times, please call us only in case of an emergency and otherwise try and give us a call another day.
Do you do piercing?
No, we don’t.
What if I
suffer from a skin condition?
on what kind of skin condition it is. It can be herpes, psoriasis, eczema or
chronic acne. You will need to discuss your decision to get a tattoo with your
doctor. The reason for this is that chronic skin conditions affect your whole
body. Although the tattoo itself may avoid the problematic area, the chronic
condition may affect the application and healing process. The tattoo artist
needs to be aware of this condition before they begin to apply the tattoo!
What if I
suffer from epilepsy?
If a client
suffers from epilepsy, they should avoid getting a tattoo, as tattooing can
induce an epileptic seizure. However, this also depends on how severe the
disorder is. It is necessary to discuss this with your doctor. The tattoo
artist needs to be aware of this condition before they begin to apply the
tattoo! Tattooing a client with this disorder is at the client’s own risk.
What if I
suffer from an immune disorder – cancer or if I have undergone chemotherapy?
If a client
suffers from cancer, their organism is extremely weakened and it is therefore
not suitable to get a tattoo. If a client has undergone chemotherapy, it is
necessary to wait for 6 months after the therapy is complete, as it is
necessary for the organism to regain its strength.
if I suffer from an infectious disease – HIV or hepatitis?
If a client
suffers from hepatitis or is HIV positive, they should avoid getting a tattoo.
Their organism is extremely weakened and they would also be putting the tattoo
artist’s health at risk.
if I suffer from a pancreatic disease?
If a client
suffers from a pancreatic disease, they will need to discuss the decision to
get a tattoo with their doctor. The tattoo artist needs to be aware of this
condition before they begin to apply the tattoo!
Can I get a
tattoo if I am pregnant / breastfeeding?
if a client is pregnant or breastfeeding, she cannot get a tattoo. Getting
tattooed during pregnancy and breastfeeding could jeopardize the health of the
foetus as well as the mother. Tattooing causes muscular contractions (due to
pain), which can result in premature labour contractions or – in the worst case
scenario – even miscarriage! An unexpected allergic reaction is another risk
that could affect the mother-to-be.
What if I
suffer from an allergy?
depends on what kind of allergy it is. It is important that the client is not
allergic to the instruments, disinfectant and colours used for tattooing. The
tattoo artist needs to be aware of this condition before they begin to apply
you buy your airbrush paints and supplies?
We buy our
airbrush supplies at the www.airbrush-potreby.cz e-shop. We use this shop to buy WICKED
airbrush paints, airbrushes, airbrush components, foils for templates, fabric paints
What are the booking conditions and deposit terms for the term?
The client reserves the term of the tattoo in person, by phone or via e-mail, and the advance payment for the term is part of the reservation of the term.
The amount of the deposit for the term is determined by the tattoo artist according to the size and complexity of the motif (minimum 1200 CZK).
The client will pay a deposit for a period of up to 5 days from the booking date by sending a deposit for the term to the account provided by the Tattoo artist or paying cash in person at the studio- if not, the booking of the date will be CANCELED.
If the client sends money to the account, he / she is obligated to write the name and date of the appointment in the message - if he / she fails to do so, the payment is not credited to the reserved term and is INVALID.
After sending the advanced payment to the account, the client is obliged to send the screenshot or account statement to proof that the deposit was sent, so we are sure that the payment is actually sent in time.
If the client gets sick, he can move the advance payment to another term. Reasons that are NOT consistent with moving a backup to a deadline for a different tattoo term: changing work shifts at work, unplanned holidays, forgetting a deadline, tiredness or that you have already got tattooed on someone else, etc.
We only refund the booking fee in case of serious health complications. The reservation is automatically CANCELLED when the client does not arrive on time or does not arrive at all. Reservation of the session for underaged clients is possible only when the advanced payment for the term is payed BY THE PARENT in person or by send to the account with filled-in document on the consent of the legal representative of the client.
If the client has a tattoo voucher, he / she gives the voucher in person as a reservation for the term (unless otherwise agreed).
Do you have gift vouchers?
Yes we Do. You can choose any price above 1,000 CZK. The voucher price is always written by hand. The voucher is always for a specific tattoo artist. The validity is unlimited. We don't refund money for a voucher. The voucher is recieved in person or can be sent by post.
What if I don't show up for a tattoo correction in time?
If the client does not come for the Tattoo correction in time (or not at all), correction in the price of the tattoo is then INVALID. If the client wants an alternative date of correction, there are two ways to proceed: The client gets the tattoo correction for a price of CZK 1,000 - CZK 1,200 depending on the size of the tattoo (it is the price for material and time of the tattoo), or the client gets the correction simultaneously with a new tattoo. Most tattoo studios do not even have a tattoo correction counted in the whole price of the tattoo. Therefore, please be happy we take so much care of you and respect the rules we have here. :)
Do you make eyebrow adjustments - permanent tattoo?
Can I get a tattoo when I have Covid19?
No you can't . Same as if you have a normal flu. Cross-contamination is easy and it's not good to spread the virus and affect others. Even a slight suspicion of illness might influence the application and healing process of the tattoo.
Tattoo is an interference of person's organism. After the tattoo application the organism is weakened and the focus goes into the wound (tattoo). Then you might become prone to infections and ilness or the process of the illness or healing of the tattoo might take much longer.
Be responsible and considerate.
Whether it is this disease or any other illness.
If you start feeling ill before the tattoo session date, you should inform your tattoo artist. The application of tattoo is postponed to different day/date. Do not lie about your health.
This will help us work safer in our workplace and keep you safe at all situations.
