How should I take care of my tattoo?
After your appointment the artist will give you general instructions on how to take care of your tattoo. After the checkout you will receive a form with clear instructions on how to take care of the tattoo. The instructions are in line with the official guidelines of the public of health service. The instructions can be found on our aftercare page at all times.
How much does a tattoo cost?
This is depending on the design, as we only do custom tattoo’s. Information about prices are offered during a free consultation with one of our artists. To request a consultation you can send an e-mail to [email protected] with information or examples of what you’d like to get. Based on this we will discuss it with the artists and get in contact with you to schedule a consultation.
Does my tattoo need a touch-up?
The tattooing is only half the ‘battle’, how the tattoo will heal is depending on how you take care of it. We recommend waiting 4 weeks, to make sure the tattoo is fully healed. If after this period you see things in the tattoo that need a touch-up, you can send an email with a picture of the tattoo. We will discuss it with the artists and get back to you. Touch-ups are free the first year after your appointment, after this we have to charge for the appointment. We always charge you for touch-ups on hands and feet, as we do not recommend to get tattoo’s on these places.
Do you have sample folders which I can choose from?
No we do not, every tattoo is custom made. The artists will discuss the idea with you during a consultation, to which you can bring some examples or inspiration images. The artist will advice you about the design, and share some ideas of their own. You can always check out their portfolio’s on our website to see who’s the best match for you!
Are you a certified tattoo shop?
Yes, the GGD does an inspection every 2 years to check the way we work. Once approved, we receive a form stating so.
Do you only work based on appointments?
Yes we only work based on appointments. To get an appointment we recommend you to send an email with information about the tattoo you would like to get to [email protected]. Based on that information we can schedule an appointment for a consultation or a tattoo appointment.
Is it possible to tattoo using ash in the ink?
Yes we do, but only certain artists do it after approving it. It’s important to know that this is always at your own risk, as this can affect the outcome of the tattoo in some cases.
Is it possible to improve my old tattoo?
This is depending on the state of the tattoo. It’s best to send a picture of the tattoo to [email protected]. Based on this we can discuss it with the artists and see what’s possible. In some cases it’s possible that the tattoo can’t be improved anymore, in which case we’ll say no.
Can I cover my old tattoo with a new tattoo?
Technically every tattoo can be covered, it only depends on the kind of tattoo you want to cover it with. The new tattoo needs to be much bigger than the old tattoo. Besides that the new tattoo can’t be too transparent or translucent otherwise it won’t cover the old tattoo.
Do you also laser tattoos?
No, in this shop it’s only possible to get a tattoo instead of removing it.
Can I bring my own design?
It depends on the design. As long as it is possible and the artist approves the design. Take your tattoo design along to the shop in Zeist and you can discuss it with the artist.
How old do I need to be to get a tattoo?
You can get tattooed from the age of 16 with parental consent and in the present of a parent or guardian.

Can I bring someone to my appointment?
We ask everyone to come alone as much as possible. If you’re underage, have a disability or any other reason, we can make an exception for this. Due to the concentration and focus of the artists we want to keep their environment as relaxed as possible. If someone does come along they have the option to sit in the waiting area.
