Our large client base means we are a busy studio, and although we welcome walk-ins, we also suggest our customers make an appointment for larger pieces of art.
We are more than happy to make appointments by phone or email, as well as answer any questions. You can even email us with ideas and images in order to provide a rough estimate of price, however, visiting us in person allows us to quote more accurately.
A deposit is required to secure all appointments, which comes off the final price of your tattoo. All deposits are non-refundable however if given 48 hours notice we are able to transfer it to a new date should you need to reschedule your appointment. In the case of a cancellation or missed appointment, we cannot refund or hold deposits for future use.
*We strive to reply to all call-backs and web enquiries within 24 hours.
Remove your dressing after 4 hours (unless instructed otherwise by your artist)
- Wash your tattoo with warm soapy water, by lathering the soap up in your hand.
- Either pat it dry, or let it air dry. Do not towel rub!
- Try to wash your new tattoo 3 to 4 times a day.
You can shower, but no baths. You don’t want to submerge your new tattoo in water.
You can ice (frozen peas) your new tattoo, if it’s hot and sore afterwards, as long as you do it over the cling film.
Your tattoo may weep during the first couple of days (this is normal), which is why it is important to wash it regularly!
- Wash 3 to 4 times daily
- Pat dry
- Begin to use a small amount of Bepanthen (baby nappy rash cream) a couple of times daily. You will need a thin shiny layer. Don’t over apply, as you will clog your tattoo!
Continue to wash your tattoo 3 to 4 times daily, and apply your Bepanthen until it has completely healed (i.e all scabbing has gone)
As your tattoo begins to scab DO NOT scratch or PICK at it!
No swimming pools, sea, baths, sun, sun beds for at least 2-3 weeks. Please keep your tattoo away from animal hair during the healing process.
Bournemouth ink offers all our customers a free touch-up (valid for 3 months from the date of your initial appointment and to be completed by the original artist only).
