To ensure a smooth tattooing process and to protect our customers' informative right, it is our responsibility to describe the tattooing procedure and its possible consequences to our clients.
Different individuals may have different reactions to the tattooing procedure physically despite of its appropriate operation, and it may result damage to the human skin to a certain extent.
Since the tattoo ink is not a natural biological material, it can cause different degrees and kinds of allergies, e.g. itchiness for a period of time after tattooing.
Aftercare is very important for tattoos; it can affect the brightness of the tattoos and one's skin recovery. If cared inappropriately, it may result in slow recovery, infection and thickening of the skin, or colour fading in the tattoo.
During tattoo recovery, it is advised to avoid alcohol, spicy food, apply sauna treatment, bathe (but shower instead) or swim. It is important to avoid having direct sunlight on the tattoo for a long period of time. Also, the tattoo wound should be kept hygienic at all times.
The transparent protective wrap should be taken off three hours after the tattoo procedure. The wound should then be cleaned under warm running water, dried with plain tissue paper (without fragrance), and covered with a thin coat of tattoo cream provided by our shop. During tattoo recovery, the wound should not be cleaned with soap or covered with unauthorized cream. Otherwise, our shop shall not bear any consequences caused.
The calluses of the tattoo usually start to fall off naturally three to seven days after the procedure. During this period of time, do not pick the calluses, the wound will be healed naturally around fifteen days later, and healed completely after thirty days under normal circumstances.
People who are pregnant, suffering from any form of infectious diseases, cardiovascular or liver problems, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar/glucose), diabetes, acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), sexually transmitted diseases, or psychiatric problems should not get tattooed. Should any related complications arise due to deliberate hidden medical history, our shop does not hold any responsibilities.
To ensure a smooth tattoo process, customers should have enough rest prior the tattooing procedure. One should avoid having a full or empty stomach before getting a tattoo.
纹身会有一定程度的疼痛,纹身的过程通常不建议施行麻醉,纹身店一般会因个别程况所施行的麻醉只为表皮 的局部麻醉,麻醉效果亦会因人而异因此,纹身过程所伴随疼痛可能会出现各种身体的不适或因为疼痛而引发其他症状,甚至休克等。但一般遇有头晕现象,大多出于纹身者不正常的坐姿,而当针刺入皮肤时,疼痛感使身体收缩,加上心理紧张以致血压瞬间｀降低而产生类似"姿态性低血压"的头晕现 象,此时可立即休息,再摄取适当的盐与水份,补充不足的电解质,情况就会好转;或是适时的伸展身体,保 持血液循环顺畅,预防发生头晕现象。
Tattooing causes a certain degree of pain. However, anesthesia is usually not recommended, as different individuals react differently to it. It can usually only partially reduce pain on the epidermis. Getting a tattoo thus may result in different physical condition, e.g. black out due to intense pain. Nevertheless, such complication is usually caused by inappropriate sitting position and intense mental state, resulting in temporary unbalance blood pressure in the body. Such condition is called Postural Hypotension, which can be treated by immediate rest and consumption of salt, water and electrolyte. Appropriate stretching exercise during the tattoo procedure can also prevent such complication.
After the tattoo procedure, antiseptic must be applied. It is highly recommended to use the tattoo cream our shop provides. Should the customers refuse to receive the antiseptic treatment or apply medication which is not authorized by our shop after getting a tattoo, we do not hold any responsibilities for its consequences.
According to the Common law, it is illegal to tattoo a customer who is under the age of eighteen. Therefore personal identification may be required when necessary.
Our shop uses professional imported tattoo pigment, which meets international standard. To ensure safe and hygienic tattoo procedures, all needles, pigment and ink caps are disposed immediately after use.
