Pre Tattoo Instructions (1-2 weeks before session):
Hydrate. Drink plenty of water beginning from one to two weeks leading up to your tattoo session. Staying well hydrated makes your skin more resilient, which will allow the tattooing process to achieve optimum results, and will help you heal faster after your tattoo session.
Moisturize. As you should hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking water, it is best to keep your skin hydrated from the outside with moisturizer. Hydration is what allows skin to function at peak performance. Skin cells in this condition can rapidly repair themselves and turnover fresh cells, leading to best results for your tattoo.
The Day of Your Session You Should:
Be Well Rested and Nourished. Make sure to have a full meal before your tattoo appointment. If you have a big-piece tattoo, please bring snacks and drink for your comfort during the tattoo session.
Shower and be clean. Tattooing is a process wherein the epidermis of the skin will be pierced and wounded. Please note that we do our best to provide a clean environment and use only sterile disposable equipment for your tattoo. It is important that you are clean as well to avoid any chance of cross-contamination.
Shave. Shave the area where you will be tattooed to provide the smoothest possible surface to work on. If you aren’t used to shaving, ask someone you know who shaves regularly for assistance. Do not wax the area to be tattooed two weeks prior to your appointment. Your skin needs time to heal after a wax before you can get a tattoo.
Dress Appropriately. Dress comfortably and appropriately. Prepare for a long session and dress accordingly. Avoid tight and constricting clothing. Pay some mind to where you will be getting tattooed and make sure the clothing you wear leaves the area easily accessible.
Be Sober. Do not consume alcohol 24 hours prior your tattoo session! Do not use any numbing balms or topical creams on the area being tattooed on the day you are getting the tattoo. This may affect the quality of your skin and the quality of work that the artist may achieve. Never use drugs or alcohol to numb the pain as they can lead to various complications and jeopardize your safety and the quality of your tattoo. You may not get tattooed while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Bring water. Juice, or other small snacks you might want either while or after you get tattooed are optional.
About the Artist

"The merging of contradictions is a delightful idea. there is a strong seduction from the thought of distorting anything that stands as concrete and evident; to destroy elements and rebuild them in harmonious images. Drawing and painting in various medias are the ongoing and evolving techniques This is what I love to adapt in my work, this is the spectrum of my graphical and symbolic expressions.
Within my work I take into account the beauty found in the language related to rational thinking, and the emotional thrust that I find in the appreciation of animal life around me.
In growing up with a mother who is mathematician, I developed a visual interest in the use of structural forms. We humans study the cosmos as we search for beauty and attempt to define it through numbers and equations.
In the end I want to bring together both worlds into one image where I wish to evoke an appreciation between the viewer and the many forms of life present, I believe we all have a deep responsibility and connection with the natural world surrounding our existence.
