Is it safe to get a tattoo?
Yes, completely safe for most people Tattoos are safe, as long as each artist and the entire studio strictly adheres to Universal precautions and Blood Borne Pathogen Safety. You can be assured that DreamInk Tattoo requires each artist to hold client safety as the first and foremost priority. We have the highest level of sterilization possible and go above and beyond all local health codes and laws. We do have a consent/waiver form which identifies certain instances when it would not be appropriate for an individual to receive tattoo or piercing, but these are rare instances.
Does it hurt?
Yes it hurts. But, there are lots of people walking around with tattoos so it’s not unbearable. There are many sensations used to describe it depending on each person and what area is being worked on. Some people even like it! Are you a pain freak? 😉
Can I bring my own picture or drawing for my tattoo?
Yes. This tattoo will be on you permanently so we want to be sure you are totally happy. Bring anything you think might help to capture exactly what you’re looking for your tattoo to reflect. We also have plenty of reference books available for ideas. No matter whether you know exactly what you want or don’t have a clue, we will always work with you to design a custom piece of art that you will love.
How much will it cost?
That depends on the size of the piece and the detail involved. Some pieces cannot be completed in one sitting. You will be given a quote once you meet with the artist and go over the details of what you want. Remember though, if another studio is willing do your tattoo super cheap BEWARE! Sometimes you get what you pay for and this is going to be on you forever. If you do go for the super cheap shop see question on fixing a bad tattoo!
What is your phone number?
+62-812-990-68693 Keep in mind our availability to take phone calls is rather limited. The best way to get the info you need is to come on in. Second best way is to send us a facebook message or email: firstname.lastname@example.org and/or via our contact page here. Some questions can only be answered in person.
It is our policy to collect a deposit when booking an appointment. We accept deposits via cash and the amount of the deposit required is decided upon by the individual artist. The deposit you leave will come off the final price of your tattoo. Artists carefully schedule and book their appointments based on blocks of time. If you do not show for your appointment, they often do not have adequate time to fill your vacancy and it hurts them. Deposits serve as a good faith gesture to hold your appointment and to compensate the artist if you failed to show for your appointment time. Deposits are NEVER refundable. If less than 24 notice is given for a cancellation, you lose your deposit and must leave another deposit if you wish to reschedule. If you cancel your appointment with more than 24 hours notice, you may apply your deposit towards your rescheduled appointment. We NEVER under any circumstances will refund a deposit. We are sorry if this policy causes any inconvenience but is necessary to protect the interests of our artists.
Are there any special requirements to get tattooed?
You must be 18 years or older for a tattoo due to local health rules and regulations. We are strict in our requirements to ensure proper age and that valid legal parental consent is presented, so please call the studio at +62-812-990-68693 ahead of time to find out exactly what you will need to bring to your appointment. For any tattoo, you must present a valid drivers license or current state photo ID which by law must be photocopied. You (and your parent/ guardian if your a minor) must also read and sign a waiver/ consent form.
I have a tattoo that's really bad, can it be fixed?
Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos-even really bad ones so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we don’t think it can be successfully covered we will let you know and work with you on what options you do have so you will ultimately be happy. We never do a tattoo just to make a buck. This is a really good group of artists who take tremendous pride in their work and art. Be assured that the artwork on your body and how you feel about it is a reflection on them – meaning your satisfaction is VERY important!
How long before I can get a tan and what kind of aftercare should I do?
Aftercare guidelines for tattooing are given to every client. Keep the plastic wrap on for at least an hour. Take a normal shower and let the tattoo rinse for a minimum of 30 seconds. Wash with a mild liquid soap, no more than twice a day. Pat dry with a towel, use Bepanthan or similar tattoo aftercare product and apply two to three times a day. Stay away from any pools, jacuzzis, lakes, ponds and ocean water for the first two weeks. Keep it clean, do not touch with dirty hands. Keep your tattoo out of the sun while it is healing and apply sunscreen to it once it has healed to keep the colour crisp. If you have any questions regarding how your tattoo is healing, please contact the studio.
Can I come by the studio even if I don’t want a tattoo?
Yes. You can support your friend or family member who is getting tattooed or chillout on the couch, watch some TV in the A/C and wait for them.
