LGBTQIA+ owned. 🏳️🌈A private studio with one artist- Adam.
Tattoos here are made uniquely for you and often with you in an organic collaboration.
Our aim is to create a safe, calm space to make room for questions, personal additions that make the tattoo uniquely yours, as well as making you completely comfortable. We love customizing the room with sounds that make you feel good, and for long sessions we can play your favorite show or movie. You may prepare a playlist and be excited to play it during your session.
No one coming in and out, no one working around you, it’s just your own private experience that you can share with one other guest. 3. Design Process:
Adam will not be sending you designs/prepared stencils or alterations to desired flash designs ahead of the session.
There is an understanding of what you’re looking to work on at the tattoo session based on the proposal form and Adam will prepare himself by getting present to your session the day before and/or the morning of to keep his brain fresh to create.
Often, you will also find more to say to Adam about what you want between booking and the appoinment, so it really works best to sit down the day of and finalize the stencils together.
The canvas of tattoos is your skin and Adam needs it in front of him to work. The canvas moves and shifts, so you will take a look in the mirror at all angles. Adam does a lot of talking about the occuring of shapes in the mirror while deciding with you on placement that fits your overall aesthetic and matches your style. Anticipating the heal/skin type/wear and tear and the type of clothes you wear are all included in the design process, so your mutual collaboration is a crucial aspect of the session. If you want to wear your tattoo with a bathing suit top, please bring a bathing suit top. If you want your tattoo to look good in heels, bring them, etc. Keep that in mind and bring clothes necessary to expose and feature the body part you'd like to get tattooed.
If for any reason you are hesitating about doing the tattoo during the design process, you always have the choice to not get the tattoo and leave! In our experience, people tend to express feeling bad if they dont use up more time or if thet dont want to get tattooed. Don't think that way. There will be 0 pressure about the tattoo. You are supposed to feel good and excited about getting it!
Trust the process, ask Adam any questions that come up, and request your wildest dreams. If Adam has any concerns for you, he will lay them out, and will always be looking out for your tattoo in these three categories:
1. elegantly beautiful –– a matter of taste
2. fits your skin –– how it moves and stretches as you move and how it's occurring
3. stands the test of time –– heals and we can still see what it is
Thus, lines will become more settled, get a little thicker, and slightly fuzzier over time. The ink will subtly change color over time and over even more time lines will get a little closer together, because you're looking at the tattoo through your skin. The liquid ink is always settling deeper with time, as your cells try to keep up with it.
Please try not to call any of what's described above “fading” or “bleeding” or “blown out” as commonly referred to. This is how tattoos heal. They’re healing as you age and grow and it’s normal for them to look different in 20 years time and so on. That's the cool, lived-in beauty of them.
After you first get your tattoo, you will be talked you through the healing process and given thorough written directions. You’ll keep your tattoo clean with anibacterial soap and moisturized with A&D or Aquaphor for three days three times a day, and then past day three, moisturized with plain lotion once or twice a day for two weeks to a month, as needed. Keep your fresh tattoo out of the sun, and avoid soaking in water for at least 7-14 days. Always listen to the artist that tattooed you for best results.
