Each individualâ€™s pain threshold is very different. Some people think one part of the body is very painful while others have no problem sitting through that particular spot. Each area of the body is different. In the end, most people compare the pain to an annoyance or persistent scratching feeling. Remember, if it hurt extravagantly no one would ever get tattooed more than once!
It is best to wait a minimum of two weeks. If you have issues healing your tattoo you may have to wait longer. Submerging a fresh tattoo in any kind of water will result in scarification and improper healing. It is best to take showers and let the water softly fall over the area, being careful not to soak it. Always gently dab, not rub, with a disposable paper towel or a very clean towel to dry.
No. For The Love of Ink Tattoos only uses 316 surgical steel for initial piercing. Any other type of lower grade metal can cause infection and improper healing. We also sterilize all jewelry and ensure it is fit to be implanted in your body. When you bring in your own jewelry, our Body Piercer cannot guarantee the quality, healing, or sterilization of the jewelry. All of our piercing prices include the jewelry.
