Is it safe to get a tattoo or piercing?
Yes, completely safe for most people Tattoos and piercings are safe, as long as each artist and the entire studio strictly adheres to hygiene Safety. You can be assured that Immortal Art Studio requires each artist to hold client safety as the first and foremost priority. We have the highest level of sterilization possible and go above and beyond all local health codes and laws. We have also enrolled on a new hygiene scheme with Carlisle Council and have been awarded the top marks.
Does it hurt?
Yes it hurts. But, there are lots of people walking around with tattoos and piercings so it’s not unbearable. There are many sensations used to describe it depending on each person and what area is being worked on. Some people even like it!
Can I bring my own picture or drawing for my tattoo?
Yes. This tattoo will be on you permanently so we want to be sure you are totally happy. Bring anything you think might help to capture exactly what you’re looking for your tattoo to reflect. No matter whether you know exactly what you want or don’t have a clue, we will always work with you to design a custom piece of art that you will love.
How much will it cost?
That depends on the size of the piece and the detail involved. Some pieces cannot be completed in one sitting. You will be given a quote once you meet with the artist and go over the details of what you want. All our artists charge by the hour so depending on the style of the tattoo depends on which artist we put you with.
It is our policy to collect a deposit when booking an appointment. We accept deposits via cash and the amount of the deposit required is dependant on how long the appointment is. We require £20 deposit per 1 hour booked so if a 3 hour appointment is booked we would require £60. Full day appointments we require a £100 deposit. If you have multiple appointments booked the deposit rolls over and will come off on the last sitting. Deposits are NON REFUNDABLE and if you need to re schedule your appointment we do require 3 days or more notice otherwise you will loose your deposit.
Are there any special requirements to get tattooed or pierced?
You must be 18 years or older for a tattoo or piercing due to local health rules and regulations.
I have a tattoo that's really bad, can it be fixed?
Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos-even really bad ones so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we don’t think it can be successfully covered we will let you know and work with you on what options you do have so you will ultimately be happy.
How long before I can get a tan and what kind of aftercare should I do?
We have made our very own aftercare information that covers everything. You can view it on the after care page on the website plus you will also be given a sheet at the end of your appointment. If you have any concerns regarding the healing then simply send us a message or give us a call.
Can I reschedule my appointment?
Yes we allow all clients to re schedule appointments however we do require more than 3 days notice if you would like to do this otherwise you would loose your deposit.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for my tattoo?
There is nothing you need to do regarding the design of your tattoo as this will have already been sorted prior to the appointment and everything will be discussed on the day. Please make sure you have a shower, drink lots of water and make sure you have ate well before your appointment.
Can I bring a friend to sit with me while I get a tattoo?
Unfortunately we do not allow anyone else in the tattooing rooms other than the client getting tattooed. This is due to the person could cause a distraction to yourself and also the artist and for hygiene reasons. Your friend is welcome to wait in our waiting area in Reception while you are getting tattooed.
