    I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT! WHATS NEXT?
    We're excited to see you for your upcoming tattoo! 
    Here are a couple of tips to help prepare you for your appointment.
    - Wear or bring comfortable clothes that allow the tattoo artist to easily access the area of the body they are tattooing.
    - As tattooing involves ink, it's best to not wear clothes you mind getting messy or ruined as the ink does not easily come out of clothing, we are not responsible for ruined clothing.
    - We have designated space for clients personal belongings,
    however space is limited so please only bring necessities for during your tattoo process.
    - Please shower before your appointment.
    ( No one likes a stinky!)
    - It's best to get a good, full nights sleep before the day of your appointment as it will help with your pain threshold and general mood.
    (No one likes a meany!)
    - Always eat a full meal before getting a tattoo, as well as drinking plenty of water.
    - Bring snacks, drinks and water to your tattoo appointment as it's best to keep your blood sugar and energy up.
    There are multiple places to buy these things around the shop if you'd like to come by early to purchase them prior to your appointment.
    - Bringing headphones and reading material are great ways to pass the time while getting tattooed.
    - Please do not drink (or take blood thinners if okayed by your doctor) the day prior to your tattoo appointment as it could cause excessive bleeding
    during the tattoo process which could result in clouded vision for the artist, the pushing out of ink, poor healing and the inability for the healing bandage to adhere. 
    - Please fill out a release form and upload a copy of your ID before your tattoo appointment.
    Please read the paperwork thoroughly and let us know if you have any questions.
    - Make sure to let us know about any allergies you have prior to getting tattooed.
    Common allergies that can affect the tattoo process are allergy to Latex, Bandaids and adhesives found in them, Tegaderm or Sandierm, Nickel (cheap jewelry), soaps, ointments, and iodine. 
    - For payments we accept cash, credit cards including Visa, Master Card, Discover, and Amex
