The pre treatment down low
Pre treatment considerations before booking your cosmetic tattoo appointment
ALCOHOL + COFFEE
Avoid both for at least 24hrs before the treatment to avoid excessive bleeding. Bleeding can cause the pigment to be displaced, which is something that nobody wants!
PREGNANCY + BREASTFEEDING
We do not tattoo during pregnancy or while you are still breastfeeding.
Due to the healing process possibly being compromised, please consult your cosmetic tattooist before booking – a doctors clearance may be required.
ECZEMA + DERMATITIS
Even with the option of a patch test, if you suffer from skin hypersensitivity or dermatitis it is advisable to seek medical advice before having a cosmetic tattooing treatment.
Such as latex, rubber, medications, numbing agents, Phenylalanine (PPE): Please advise your cosmetic tattooist for further advice.
Avoid the following for a week before treatment: Fish, primrose and krill oil, Ginseng, Gingko Biloba – these thin out the blood and can inhibit coagulation.
If you are taking any of the following medication please consult your cosmetic tattooist before booking: Warfarin, Heparin, Aspirin, Opioid medication (Endone), Prednisone, Roaccutane (within 8-12 months), Antibiotics.
TOPICAL VITAMIN A
Retin-A, Tretinoin Preparations, Hydroquinone, Skin bleaching agents: may increase hypersensitivity, and the risk of scarring if used within 5 days of treatment.
It is recommended not to undergo any chemical peels within 2-4 weeks of either side of a cosmetic tattooing treatment.
On the area should be avoided a minimum of 4 weeks before treatment and must be completely avoided on any area that contain cosmetic tattoo pigment. Advise your laser/IPL therapist before undergoing treatments.
Doctor’s permission must be sought before going ahead with a treatment after any recent facial surgery.
If you are currently undertaking either of these treatments we cannot do any form of tattoo. To ensure your safety and comfort a doctors clearance must be sought up to 12 months after your cancer treatment. Please discuss with artist.
EXISTING COSMETIC TATTOOS
May be considered correctional work and requires a ‘consultation only’ appointment first. Please DO NOT book in for the full treatment unless you have called and discussed your existing cosmetic tattoo work.
