Frequently Asked Tattoo Questions

Message me or arrange a consultation if your questions are not answered.

Yes, I offer a free consultation where we can discuss your ideas, placement, price and any other questions you might have.

Mostly I design and tattoo in my own unique style which can be described as a mix of bold sketch and watercolour design. Head over to my gallery and have a look. I also tattoo other styles, best to send me a picture of what you have in mind and I will let you know if I can realise it for you.

The price always depends on size and design of the tattoo. To give you an idea: small tattoos start from RM200, a leg half sleeve could be around RM5000. Please contact me with your idea and we can discuss everything.

Currently my waiting list is usually between 1-3 months.

I will not tattoo anyone below the age of 18 years.

Usually we do a consultation before your appointment. You can book a consultation or contact me.

Yes, I always take a deposit before I start any kind of design work. Deposits are non-refundable and you will need to let me know if you can’t make an appointment. I will have a period in which you can rearrange your appointment and keep your deposit valid. Deposit costs are usually based on the size of the tattoo and the amount of time needed to complete it. They are usually between RM100 - RM500. Deposits go towards the final price of your tattoo so don’t worry, it is still your money, it is just a small investment upfront.

Currently I accept cash and direct transfer only.

I don’t offer any on-site parking but there is street parking and one parking garage nearby.

Unfortunately the answer is, yes of course it does. Needles will be pushed into the second layer of your skin to deposit the ink. The pain is worth it though and most times not as bad as you imagine. All areas of the body feel different when getting tattooed, so some hurt more than others. But you will live to tell the tale, I promise!

Yes there will be bleeding, as the skin will get damaged during the tattooing process, however I am constantly wiping excess ink away so you might not even notice it.

Please do not use any numbing cream, it can affect the ink as well as tattooing and healing process. Besides that, I believe that the pain is part of the tattooing journey. If your pain threshold is low we can always arrange for shorter sessions.

All skin tones can be tattooed, however the darker the skin the more restrictions in terms of colour and detail. We can discuss this during your consultation.

I offer free touch ups for up to 3 month after the healing process.

Yes, aftercare is incredibly important. After your session, I will give you instructions on how to take care of your tattoo. However you can also head over to this tattoo aftercare blog and read more!

Some tattoos take longer to heal than others. It takes one month for the skin to “heal”, but it takes months for the skin to fully regenerate.

The best thing you can do is to be well-rested. You will find that your pain tolerance is a lot higher when you are feeling your best. It helps to have a good meal at least 2 hours before your appointment and to stay hydrated. If you feel weak or faint during your tattoo, then have a sugar filled drink to get your blood-sugar levels up. Please don’t party the night before. Alcohol thins the blood for up to 24 hours and can dilute our ink pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Remember that I am here to help, so don’t stress, I will look after you throughout your tattooing session.

I welcome everyone at the studio, however friends cannot come to the tattoo station while you are being tattooed as I require a calm environment during the process. However please bring your friend for the consultation, if you like to!

I would love to tattoo everyone but unfortunately I cannot tattoo you if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or if you have Atopic Dermatitis in the area you want to get tattooed. I also will not tattoo anyone who comes to the studio under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Generally, I can tattoo over scarred or damaged skin, as long as it has healed fully. However it’s always a good idea to come in and show me in person, but a photograph could be enough to advise you if tattooing is possible. Please don’t feel embarrassed about showing me your scars, I am not passing judgement at all, I just want to see if I can tattoo you. Look at this tattoo scar cover up blog

Generally the answer is yes, however there are certain restrictions and things to consider when it comes to the design of cover. This means not all tattoo ideas work and often the new design will have to be bigger and darker than the original. The easiest way is to book a consultation with me and we can have a direct look at your tattoo and the options available.


Your tattoo will only ever expand or reduce at the same rate as your skin, it will not distort in shape.

Yes, all my inks have not been tested on animals nor do they contain any animal or animal by products.

Please note that I do not ink copies of already existing tattoos. This is non-negotiable and out of respect to other artists work. However, it is always possible to look at existing tattoos and art as inspiration and we can go from there to design something that I make uniquely for you.
