What sort of references do I need to bring with me to my consultation?
The more focused and specific the information you supply, the easier it is for us to turn the tattoo of your dreams into a reality. There are many different things you can bring to your consultation to use as reference materials, including all types of books and print media, photographs, rough sketches, physical objects (i.e., a seashell, your child’s favorite toy, etc.). With a little bit of imagination, almost anything in the world can be a tattoo reference so don’t be afraid to delve into your search with an open mind! You should bring any of your references, ideas, sketches along with you. If at all possible, try to bring high-quality copies of these things instead of originals, as it may be necessary to leave them here for drawing purposes. Rest assured, all references will be returned safely if it is not possible to leave a copy. Other than that, a deposit is required in order to set up an appointment. For your convenience, it is a good idea to bring money and/or an ATM/Credit Card. This will allow you to set up an appointment without having to wait or make an additional trip to the studio. A consultation will not take very long. It usually goes like this: You’ll come in with your ideas and references. We will look at them and discuss them with you, as well as take a look at the place you’d like to get the tattoo. This is to make sure the size and placement are appropriate, along with the tattoo’s composition. He also needs to make sure the area is not too tanned, hairy, blemished, or scarred to be tattooed. From there, we’ll figure out how much time the tattoo will take, quote a price, and proceed to schedule your appointment.

What do I need to do or bring with me the day of my actual appointment?
There are a couple of things you can do to help facilitate getting your tattoo. Most importantly, you want to be as healthy as possible when you come in. Here are some recommendations to help make things go smoothly: Eat before you come in, or else you might feel dizzy or light-headed. Do not drink alcohol or do drugs at least two days prior to getting tattooed. Art In Motion does not tolerate any alcohol, drug, or intoxicants in the studio. We reserve the right to refuse services if you are suspected to be under the influence of anything. This might sound harsh, but your safety is more important to us than anything else. Try to get a good night’s sleep the night before getting tattooed. Wear comfortable, loose clothing that will easily allow access to the area to be tattooed. It is OK to bring a beverage, especially water or fruit juice, with you in case you get thirsty during your tattoo. Before getting started with the tattoo, please inform us of any allergies or special medical conditions that you may have. If you have any other questions at all, please ask!!!

What methods of sterilization does A.I.M use?
A.I.M takes yours and our safety very seriously. Therefore, we follow strict precautions to insure you a safe tattooing experience. All of our equipment is sterilized in an autoclave, which is the same thing they use in a hospital of doctor’s office. Every needle is brand new and sterile, along with the ink and other supplies used for each individual tattoo, then disposed of properly upon completion, making your tattooing experience as safe as possible. And everything is opened or laid out in front of you, so you can see for yourself.

Does it hurt?
Each person has a different tolerance level for pain, so the question is pretty subjective. What one person finds excruciating, another might not bat an eyelash. Most clients agree that it is more of an annoyance than anything else. It may not be the best feeling in the world for you, but it is ultimately a tolerable sensation. The good news is that once the tattoo is finished, you’ll never feel it again!

How do I take care of my new tattoo?
Leave the bandage on your new tattoo overnight. Remove it the following morning and gently wash the tattoo using only your fingertips and warm, soapy water. Apply THIN coats of A&D ointment for four days, twice a day. After fourth days, switch to a fragrance-free skin lotion like Lubriderm, Keri Lotion, or Curel for two weeks, applying constantly as needed. The healing tattoo will be itchy and flaky. The flakes appear similar to the way a sunburn peels, and they might have a little bit of tint to them. This is normal. DO NOT pick or scratch. DO NOT soak in a bath or hot tub, go swimming, or expose the tattoo to sunlight or tanning beds for at least two weeks. If you have any further questions about the healing process, feel free to call us.
