Do hand poke tattoos last as long as a machine tattoo?
You bet they do! A hand poke tattoo done correctly will last the same way as a traditional machine tattoo. Just make sure you have an experienced artist.
Do you use the same tools as a "regular" tattoo?
Yes!...Mostly..lol A hand poke tattoo dose NOT use a tattoo machine or "gun" but instead each mark is poked by hand. I do use certified tattoo inks, needles, washes etc Everything in my studio is Tattoo grade.
Will it hurt more?
No! Most people who have sat for a hand poke have noted how little it hurts compared with traditional machine tattoo. That being said the amount of pain you feel while getting a tattoo has to do with the ability of the artist, where on your body or getting the tattoo, and how high your pain tolerance is.
How long does it take?
The average tattoo I do in my shop takes between 1 and 4 hours but will depend on size placement and detail.
Do I need to bring anything?
I suggest bringing a light snack and a bottle of water and comfortable clothes appropriate for the location you're being tattooed.
Do you work evenings and weekends?
As a mother of four, I try to work during the days, that being said I can book evenings and weekends on request.
Will you tattoo other artist's work?
I will not tattoo another artist's work but I will accept a photo as someone else's work as a reference photo.
Will you tattoo all skin tones?
You bet I will! I offer free colour swatches which is a great way to find out how different colours will look on your complexion for those with darker skin tones.
