Yes, there are plenty of people tattooing out there that will ink you cheap on their home sofa or bed, and might end up crying because of an infection or to have it covered up later. Look for quality, and be willing to pay for it. NEVER haggle over the price of a tattoo. It is disrespectful to the artist. If you can’t pay for quality now, don’t bother, take your time and save some money. It is a piece of art you will wear for life.

Does it hurt?

Pain is really relative. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. We are not going to kid you, though – it does hurt. Just not that much. Some have compared it to a “hot scratching feeling”. But, people would not be returning again and again for tattoo after tattoo if it hurt that bad! Most of us are not into pain, but the beauty of the tattoo and the pride associated with wearing it far outweighs a little pin-stick here and there. We don´t recommend any kinds of numbing creams.

What about hygiene standards in Dubai?

A professional artist will be equipped with all the latest hygiene apparatus, all needles that are being used shall be NEW and the sealed packaging should be opnened in front of your eyes. High hygienic standards are of uptmost importance to each and every tattoo created. Don´t hesitate to ask the artist, he we will gladly show you the procedures and equipment.

Are there any designs I CAN’T have?

In the interests of social harmony, we DO Not apply designs of an offensive nature. These include profanities, obscene images, or designs of a racist or sectarian nature.

Can I get a temporary tattoo?

Don’t Believe Most of the Hype! Some tattoo artists may claim that they can create a temporary tattoo (also called 6-month tattoo) by only injecting the ink into the top layers of the skin. And several tattoo inks have been claimed to fade until they vanish. Both of these methods purport to result in tattoos that last from 6 months to several years. Both of these claims are patently false. Once tattoo ink is in the dermis – any layer of the skin – it’s there for the long run. You might end up with a faded tattoo if you use these scams, but it will be a permanent faded tattoo.

How long does it take to create a tattoo?

This clearly depends on the size and the details of your preferred design. Send your design idea to get detailed infos.
