Tattoo info

For all Lucky Dubz Studio artists and employees, the practice and understanding of hygiene standards is a basic aspect of their profession and training. The work areas are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected by an artist/employee after each tattoo session. Through consultations with the Health Department, we have ensured that the surface finish of the work areas (walls, floors, furnitures, equipments) facilitate cleaning to ensure germ-free conditions.

The professional execution of disinfecting the work areas is specified in a plan and continuously reviewed. The sterilized instruments are provided with an expiration date. It's about YOUR health.

The current regulation of tattoo colorants.

In November 2008, the European Parliament has overcome a very important milestone with the decision of the new Regulation of the Tattoo Colors for the European tattoo industry. This means for you as a customer that it is finally banned to use the colors that include harmful ingredients.

We at Lucky Dubz Studio even go one step further and completely refuse to use colors and other materials containing animal ingredients or were tested on animals. We use vegan ink only.

As our tattoo artists are true artists, they are very happy to take on the preparation of an individual motif for you. We don't make any tattoos from the bar. Every tattoo that leaves our studio is unique. The more precise your statements, ideas or motives are, the more precise our evaluation of the price will be.

The basic starting price for a tattoo is 80, - Euro.

Risk

  • Tattoos can restrict. Although tattoos are becoming more popular, they are not necessarily welcome everywhere. It is important to concider this in the choise of profession.
  • Template and result: The tattoos will always look a little different than a drawing e.g. on paper. Depending on your skin type and color, there may be deviations. In addition, the tattoo artist possibly will need to adjust the motif anatomically in shape, size and color. An accurate preview of the result can never be simulated.
  • Complications: allergies, infections, inflammation despite compliance with utmost hygiene, it may lead to complications. Allergic reactions and dermatitis. The risk of infection can not be excluded. Prevention also includes the proper care of the tattoo. For that purpose, after tattooing you get a oral explanation and detailed care instrauctions for reading. Should complications require medical treatment as a result of a tattoo, so the health insurance does not cover the costs. In the event of questions or problems, please feel free to visit us in the studio.
  • Complications harmless to health: 'BlowOut' This means that the color of the skin, simular to the ink on a blotting paper, 'runs'. This is generally never be ruled out and simply due to the connective tissue. It is not possible for a tattoo artist to eliminate this risk in advance.

Aftercare instructions

After your tattoo appointment, the tattoo artist will inform you orally about your new tattoo and about how to take care of it. The healing phase proceeds differently depending on care, skin type and body part.

For the best possible healing, the following points must be observed:

 

  • after tattooing no intensive activities can be performed
  • remove the foil after three to max 5 hours
  • clean the tattoo with clear water and unicura soap
  • water a clean washcloth with hot water and press it on the fresh tattoo for about 30 seconds, let the wound dry or dab dry carefully after
  • then thinly apply a tattoo ointment e.g. Balm tattoo – we offer you for 11,- Euro in our studio
  • for the first seven days take only very quick showers and do not scrub it!
  • thinly apply the healing ointment to your tattoo and massage it in gently 2 times a day for the first two weeks in order to protect your skin from drying out
  • during the third week, apply a non perfumed bodylotion after every washing
  • no sports for at least two weeks
  • During the healing phase it should be generally observed:
  • do not stretch a tattooed place excessively, caution in sports and other physical activities
  • avoid extensive showers and bathing / swimming during the first three weeks
  • avoid contact with dirt and oil
  • itching is part of the healing, do not scratch! It might otherwise be uprooted color pigments
  • avoid solarium and direct sunlight for four to six weeks
  • use only a sunblock 30+ on the tattooed place for three months, not during the 3 week healing process!
  • little stress and physical stress, plenty of sleep and a healthy diet support the wound healing forces of the body

In the first few days may occur swelling and bruises. These are injury-related retention and there is no need to worry.

 

After about three to six weeks you come to the studio for a visual inspection of the tattoo and here it is then decided whether a retouch is necessary. If you are from another city you can send us some good pictures of your healed tattoo to info@luckydubz.com The retouch must be proceeded within the next six months.
