Hurray! We have received your deposit and you are now confirmed for your appointment. Here is some important information about your upcoming appointment!
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
This is the most important thing you can do before your appointment for me. AS SOON AS YOUR APPOINTMENT IS SET, it’s super important to start moisturizing tattoo area regularly. With the skin properly moisturized, it will allow for a smoother healing process for you and helps me dramatically with the application of your tattoo as well. It’s one of the most important things you can do for your appointment before hand. You will also want to try and avoid the sun, scrapes and abrasions, or bug bites the best you can! If the skin is damaged too much, then it cannot be tattooed safely and will result in a need to reschedule.
Payments for the tattoo can be taken in a few ways, however, cash is always and absolutely preferred. Because it is a larger amount due, a lot of the other ways to process a payment such as Zelle, Venmo, Cashapp, Paypal, etc. can cause errors or charge large fees to process the which is why I strongly encourage you to bring cash if you can.
Your aftercare will be explained at the end of your appointment in detail and is also listed on this website. But just to quickly run over the process with you, I use a combination of an absorbent pad the first 24 hours, and then a second skin product for 4 to 5 days afterword. Then after that, all you’ll need at home is an antibacterial hand soap (liquid dial is excellent) and then a simple basic unscented hand lotion such as Lubriderm, Curel, Eucerine, Aquafor, etc.
We will more than likely be there for many hours, and I’m not offended at all if you wanna just throw headphones on and zone out, so please feel free to bring headphones, a Nintendo Switch, or an iPad to watch TV shows or movies on. To be considerate of others around us though, just make sure you are using headphones for them.
I don’t usually take breaks for food or anything, but that doesn't mean you can't! I take at least one longer break after we are done tattooing the linework on you so I can pour out the colors, so that is about 15 mins or so, but please feel free to let me know if you’d need to eat or stand up or take a bathroom break etc. I promise it’s okay with me :)
Oh and sometimes, it can get cold in the studio, so bring a jacket! And also, please wear clothing that you wouldn’t mind getting some ink on and possibly ruining. I don’t try to get ink on things, but it can happen.
THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT
I’ll be tattooing out of Everblack Tattoo Studio in Brooklyn, New York! The address is…
Everblack Tattoo Studio
377 S First St
Brooklyn, NY 11211
The appointment is set to begin at 12pm Noon unless otherwise discussed. However, be prepared to hang out for roughly an hour at the beginning of the appointment as we get everything sized out, set up and finalized.
BRING A STATE ISSUED PHOTO ID! I cannot tattoo you without it!
Also, I personally don’t mind if you bring a friend or two to the appointment, but we have to make sure to stay out of the way. It’s New York City and space is limited, so if it’s a full house and everyone is tattooing on the same day and everyone brings a friend, it gets rather tight in there. So the guest might be asked to hang out in the waiting area. Though, that is not usually the case, so feel free to bring that support!
