The law says you have to be 18. NO EXCEPTIONS, including parental or guardian consent. You will also need to provide valid photo ID before you get your tattoo.


It varies from person to person. Some find the process quite uncomfortable and others actually like it. The most common response from first-timers is, “Is that all” and they almost seem disappointed!

Either way, our artists will look after you and make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

Firstly, you must complete and sign a consent form and provide photo ID.

Your artist will then prepare the area of skin that is to be tattooed. This includes cleaning with an antiseptic solution and shaving to ensure the skin is smooth and clean.

A temporary stencil of your tattoo will then be applied to your skin. You can then check to make sure the position and size of the tattoo is just right before the tattoo process begins. Your artist will then begin applying the ink.

When your tattoo is finished, it will be dressed and covered with a clear plastic wrap to protect it from infection while initial healing begins.

Your artist will explain how to care for your new tattoo, and you will be given an after-care pack containing clear instructions, a business card and a Chupa Chup!

Please follow these aftercare instructions to assist your tattoo in the healing process and maximise the quality of your tattoo. 

Keep in mind every individual heals differently and you must follow the instructions your tattoo artist gives you very carefully for the best possible outcome. 

Before you begin, ALWAYS thoroughly wash your hands before touching your tattoo. 

Leave your dressing on for 1-2 hours before removing to seal the ink and reduce weeping blood and plasma. Remove dressing and gently wash your tattoo with mild soap and water. Rinse briefly with cold water initially to close pores and seal in the ink. Softly pat dry (do not rub) with a clean towel or paper towel.

Re-apply a thin layer of cream to your tattoo. We recommend Dr. Pickles and Moringa Life Plus as it protects your tattoo from infection and aids the skin’s healing process.

Continue to apply cream 2 times a day until your tattoo is fully healed. You will know it’s healed when the skin is no longer peeling and the surface of your tattoo resembles the rest of your skin and doesn’t have a shiny appearance.

DO NOT scratch, pick or vigorously rub the surface of your new tattoo, even if it gets itchy. Doing so can damage the quality of your tattoo and cause it to appear patchy.

DO NOT swim in the sea, pool or a spa until your new tattoo is completely healed (approximately 3-4 weeks). Sea Salt and Chlorine both act as bleach and may discolour or fade your tattoo. Pools and spas also contain varying levels of bacteria and may cause your tattoo to become infected.

NOTE: FOOT TATTOOS – do not wear covered shoes for at least 7 days following your tattoo.

For long-term care, always use sunscreen when outdoors to prevent your tattoo from fading. Moisturise your healed tattoo as required.

We can give you an estimated price for many tattoos, but for complex or larger designs we quote an hourly rate. 

Emailing the studio with your design, including all relevant details such as:

Size, location, colour or grey wash etc., and we can give you an estimate.

Estimates given via email will need to be confirmed in person when you come into the studio.

Depending on the tattoo that you are wanting will depend on whether the artists are able to give an estimate or will need to arrange a free consultation to discuss your ideas. Our artists can then give you an estimate of the cost and time involved in creating your tattoo and ensure you get exactly what you want.

Afterpay is available but will result in an additional 7% fee, which will be applied to the final cost of my tattoo.

Sacred Skin specializes in custom tattoos so you will need to book a consult with the artist best suited to your design and come in for a chat with some reference pictures it generally only takes 5-10 minutes and doesn’t cost anything.

Bring in an existing image, a rough sketch or even an idea, and we will take it from there.

There is a small fee for custom artwork, but it’s a small price to pay for having a unique tattoo.

If you are looking for inspiration for a new tattoo, Google Images and Pinterest are great places to start. 

Other places to look for artwork are magazines and books. You can even draw a rough sketch. Don’t be embarrassed about your hand drawn artwork. We can see what you have in mind even from a very basic sketch.

It’s important to remember that you don’t have to find the perfect design. Because we can do custom artwork, you just need to find a design that is close to what you want.

We take health and safety seriously in our studios to ensure that you have a clean, sterile and safe tattoo experience.

As necessary, tattoo and piercing staff have completed the Infection Control Certificate that is a legal requirement for working in this industry.

We use disposable needles, ink caps, gloves, paper towels etc. All items that require sterilisation are processed through a hospital grade steam autoclave.

Our autoclave is serviced and certified regularly.

Our studios are health department certified.

Using your hands (not a washcloth) and a mild fragrance free soap gently wash your tattoo with luke-warm water. We recommend washing twice a day or as required. Pat dry with a clean paper towel and leave it to air dry before applying any balm.

First avoid excessively and unnecessarily touching your new tattoo; in the early days of the healing process your tattoo is essentially an opened wound and is incredibly vulnerable to bacteria and germs.

After your tattoo is complete your artist will cover your new tattoo with cling film. This will be able to be removed after 2 – 4 hours, re-wrap with cling wrap if required when going to bed on the first night, no need to rebandage after this.

We recommend Dr Pickles Tattoo Balm, which is available here in the studio. It’s required for up to 14 days, but again determined by your individual healing time. Apply a very thin layer after you wash & dry your tattoo.

Do not pick, rub or scratch any scabs that may form or peel off flaky skin. This may invite serious infection, ink fallout, and scars may form. 

The aftercare protective film is a bandage that acts as another layer of skin to protect the wound that’s underneath it. In the first 24 hours, there may be a build-up of plasma under the bandage. This is completely normal. You may then opt to change the dressing, or remove it and start using an aftercare balm.

Application can vary between the artist and style of tattoo: If you were given a bandage to take home, it can be applied a few hours later or on the 2nd day. This is to allow excess plasma to dry before being re-covered. *Avoid replacing if you are producing excess plasma. Instead, wash the tattoo and gently pat dry with a paper towel (or air dry) and use aftercare balm.

To apply, expose the sticky side by peeling off the backing printed side. Smooth the bandage over the tattoo pushing out any air bubbles. Remove supportive clear backing by peeling it off and smoothing over skin. We do not recommend exceeding 5 days. When removing the second skin, take a shower and run warm water on the bandage to loosen the adhesive before pulling it off the tattoo. After you have removed the bandage, wash with a gentle, fragrance free soap and then pat dry with a clean paper towel and apply a thin layer of aftercare balm until the tattoo is fully healed.

– Do not heavily exercise for the first 48 hours

– Do not pick, rub or scratch any scabs or flakes that may form or peel off.

– Do not shave over your tattoo until it is fully healed

– Do not go swimming, soak in a bathtub or visit a sauna

– Do not remove any second skin dry – be sure to remove it under warm running water

– Do not expose your new tattoo to direct sunlight whilst it is healing, after it is healed apply SPF 50 Sunscreen to ensure the tattoo does not fade

– Do not use anything other than your hand to wash your tattoo

If infection occurs it will require a visit to the GP and some antibiotics. We are always here to check in with and give advice. Healing time frames vary from 4-6 weeks.

Some symptoms of infection you should keep your eye on include:

  • A rash
  • Pus or oozing for extended periods of time
  • Redness and radiating heat from the tattoo
  • Fever
  • Prolonged swelling
  • Hard or raised tissue

We offer a 3-month guarantee on our workmanship (except on hands and feet) with a free touch up. If you feel something’s not quite right, we are happy to further assist. Call us on 07 3397 3606. We will contact you  7 days and 30 days after your session to follow-up your healing.
