An initial telephone consultation gives brief requirements, and any of your questions and problems discussed. You are then provided a detailed description of the procedure, and should you wish to go ahead, a firm cost of the treatment and a small booking fee is is provided and an appointment is made.
The booking fee is payable in advance and is not refundable, but no further obligation exists should you have a change of mind at any time, even on the day of the appointment.
These procedures are not to be taken lightly and I understand that there are many reasons why you may wish to re-consider prior to commencement.

Cosmetic Tattooing

After welcoming you on the day of your appointment, a history form is completed by you, followed by:

At the end of the procedure when the client is satisfied, a photo is taken of the results. In the case of tattooing, Bepanthen antiseptic cream (Benzalkonium Chloride - recommended for babies and cracked nipples) is applied, followed by an ice-ack as a vaso-constrictor to reduce swelling and serous discharge from the treated area. After 10-20 minutes rest, the client is given instructions on after care and prevention of contamination by fingers touching the site.

A return visit is scheduled for after 4-6 weeks - this provides for an after care top-up to fix or implant areas that have not adequately implanted in the tissue.

Tattoo Removal

At the end you are advised on aftercare and its importance of keeping the treated area dry to allow to scab to form. 2-3 months later a further treatment can be undertaken.
