Hand and neck tattoos 

We have no problem doing hand and neck tattoos for you as long as you already have visible tattoos in other places on your body. The skin on your neck and hands is more exposed to the sun than the rest of your body. For this reason hand and neck tattoos might require a small touch-up session because of the delicate placement. This is not a free touch up.

Touch-ups 

This is a bit of a touchy subject (pun intended), so here goes. On small tattoos where a fixed price has been given you’r entitled to a free touch up of your tattoo. If it should be required (note with proper aftercare you shouldn’t need a touch up), this touch up session must be redeemed no later than 1 month after your initial session.

Free Touch ups do not apply to the following areas of the body:

  • Fingers
  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Neck
  • Face

There is no such thing as touch ups on sleeves and larger work. This is considered ongoing tattoo work.

Sun Care for your tattoo

We recommend that you follow all the steps outlined in our tattoo aftercare page while your tattoo is healing.

Even after your tattoo has fully healed we recommend that you use sunscreen with SPF 50 every time your exposing your tattoo to the sun.  This will prevent your tattoo from fading over time.

Do not use sunscreen on your tattoo while it’s healing. Most sunscreen has zinc in it, which can be dangerous to get into your blood.
