  • Is there anything I should do before my appointment?
    We suggest to avoid the following before getting a tattoo: Avoid alcohol and drugs a minimum 24 hours before your appointment Be well rested and get a good night’s sleep Avoid excessive exercise before your appointment as this may make your appointment less comfortable Do not arrive to your appointment with damaged skin - if you have any queries beforehand about your skin, please get in touch Finally wear comfortable clothing to your appointment – loose clothing is best
  • I’m pretty nervous about getting a tattoo. Is there anything you can advise?
    It’s easy to say don’t be nervous as our artists at Studio 51 Ink will make sure you’re comfortable and treat you like a VIP throughout your session. To help calm any pre-tattoo nerves we advise the following: Think of how awesome your tattoo will be after the appointment and focus on the end goal Rest as much as possible before your appointment Eat food and drink water before your tattoo appointment (a good excuse to eat chocolate to get those sugar levels up!) Let your artist know at the beginning of the appointment about your nerves as they can talk through the process with you and make sure you are extra comfortable
  • Can you copy a tattoo that I’ve found online?
    No, we advise not to copy a tattoo design found online. Not only do we pride ourselves on our unique and bespoke design but we also respect other artist’s work. We can however take inspirations from tattoos online and work closely with you to create a tattoo that you will love that is unique to you.
