What can I do to prepare for my appointment?
Tattoo session can be short and quick or long and exhausting. Please prepare ahead of time to make sure your experience is comfortable and enjoyable.
A few days prior to your appointment, we recommend you prep your skin with daily moisturizer. This will help the skin to better take in ink. If you have body hair in that area, please shave before your appointment. We suggest you to bring any entertainment of your choice, snacks, food and drinks. While tattooing your body temperature may drop, feel free to bring in a small blanket to keep warm.

What are the things I need to do to take care of my Tattoo?
Pain tolerance varies from person to person. Tattoos will hurt regardless, however to make your session more comfortable please make sure you are in good health, have a positive mind set, and eat and sleep properly.
If you are fighting a cold or flu, please reschedule. Getting a tattoo is not recommended when you're immune-system is low, it could take longer for your tattoo to heal and you may be more prone to infections.
*For ladies, sometimes pain can feel more intense when you are on your period. Be mindful when choosing your appointment date, we highly recommended not getting tattooed during this time.
Is tattoo painful?
If you're wary about skin reactions due to allergies or sensitive skin. It will be an additional $50 [+tax] for Patch-Test upon request.
Symptoms to keep an eye out are: red rashes, extensive swelling and serious scabbing around the tested area.
Do you offer Patch-Test services?
Symptoms to look out for after Patch-Test?
We recommend the best time of year to get a tattoo is during the winter season. There are less chance of infection and the tattoo will heal easier and much faster.
Summer is the worse time to get tattoos because tattoo must stay covered at all times, away from sunlight during the healing period, no pool, no sun bathing, no showing it off! More sweat means more likely to get infected
When is the Best time to get a tattoo?
Tattoos do fade and age overtime, but to keep it looking vibrant, avoid tanning as much as you can and moisturize as part of your daily routine, it will help keep the tattoo looking crisp and clean.
Proper aftercare will also help prevent tattoo fading.
For more info visit our Aftercare page.
How can I prevent my tattoo from fading?
This depends on your artist, but generally you should be expecting it sometime between 3-5 days or a week prior to your tattoo appointment.
I have an appointment booked, when can I expect a sketch?
Check out our Instagram Portfolios - @meowinktattoo, if the style you see there is not the style you're looking for, then we may not be the right shop for you.
Are there styles you don't do?
This depends on the design, if it is your own drawing, we will inspect the drawing to see if it will be a fitting tattoo, changes and adjustment can/will be made to make sure your piece turns out as ideal as possible .
Keep in mind that generally tattoo artists work at their highest potential when given full creative freedom to design the piece for you. Using your original drawing or sketches as guidance, artists may be able to recreate a piece hopefully exceeding your expectations.
