Questions & Answers

Tattoos

Does getting a tattoo hurt?

YES! Receiving a tattoo is a painful process. It requires the application of pigment under the first epidermal layer of the skin. The larger the tattoo the longer it will take to do, so small tattoos hurt less than large ones! But remember, people wouldn't get a second tattoo if the first one hurt that bad. Don't be a sissy!

How much does it cost to get a tattoo?

The cost varies on the size of your tattoo, the complexity, and where you put it on your body. Our prices start at $30.00 and go up from there. The Tattoo Factory freely admits WE ARE NOT THE CHEAPEST! Remember, you get what you pay for and only have one chance to get one tattoo on that one spot on your body. Do it right! Go to a pro!

Can I bring my own design?

Just about any design you can think of can be made into a beautiful Tattoo Factory tattoo. You are more than welcome to bring in your own design or pick one of our hundreds of thousands of designs that line our walls. If you already know what you want, great, it is very simple to convey your idea to our artists. The easiest way is with a picture. It doesn't matter what the picture is on (keychain, t-shirt, book, drawing...etc.). Even if you can't draw, our guys still love to do the custom work. Just describe it well or even bring in a stick drawing. We can turn it into your dream tattoo on paper right before your eyes!

Can you fix my old tattoo?

Old tattoos can be easily reworked into a fresh work of art. Color can be added to brighten your existing tattoo or with a little creativity even turned into a completely new (although larger) tattoo. There's no use in going through life with "Susan" tattooed on your arm if you love "Pam." Thanks to the modern possibilities of the Tattoo Factory experience, it can all be corrected. Why wait? We fix other tattoo shop's mistakes every day!

Is it safe to get a tattoo?

A Tattoo Factory tattoo is put on under the strictest of sanitary conditions. We use a totally disposable tattoo system! Every instrument is new before going into a high pressure, high temperature autoclave for approximately one hour. Everything is disposed of after every tattoo, and the entire area sanitized. Our procedure consists of individually wrapped instruments that are only opened in front of you. (If you choose to go somewhere else, insist on this same procedure.)

There is no disgusting jewelry exchange or re-use of even our own jewelry! You must purchase your jewelry from the Tattoo Factory in order for us to ensure our high quality of standards. Remember, SAFE IS SMART!

How do I care for my new piercing?

Healing time for piercing varies from person to person and from piercing to piercing.

If you have any questions or healing problems, feel free to call Tattoo Factory, Inc. However, please understand that its employees are not physicians and can only offer suggestions based upon their experience. You are strongly encouraged to consult with a physician prior to the piercing and the physician's advice takes precedence over Tattoo Factory's suggestions.

In the event that you experience rash, discharge of fluid, bleeding, swelling, excessive redness, pain, or similar conditions, including but not limited to the pierced area, seek medical attention from your physician as soon as possible. Although you may feel the situation may not require medical attention, it is best to be conservative and have the doctor evaluate your condition . Remember, the first rule you must observe after you have received the piercing is to keep the area clean, do not touch it without washing your hands, and do not let the area come into contact with other people or objects (including kissing or sex) for at least eight (8) weeks or longer if the healing process is slowed. It is most important that new piercings be thoroughly cleaned twice daily, or more often as your physician may direct.

The aftercare you give your piercing will determine how quickly your piercing heals and its appearance. It is very important to follow these guidelines and the orders of your physician to the best of your ability.

Periodically, check to make sure that your pierced jewelry has not worked itself loose or unscrewed, as this may cause a dangerous condition.
