TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW TATTOO
Keep your tattoo covered for at least 3 hours.
Once you remove the plastic film, wash the area with soap and water and gently massaged with your hand (soap must have a neutral PH). Dry your tattoo with a soft and clean towel.
Do not use the plastic film again.
Apply a small amount of cream on the tattoo. Repeat the process 3 to 4 times a day, especially for the first 24-36 hours. Ensure you keep it clean at all times.
Repeat this process until your tattoo is fully healed. A normal tattoo takes one to two weeks to heal. Avoid soaking your tattoo for prolonged periods in water.
Make sure no woollen product-clothing are applied on to the skin.
After your Tattoo is completely healed, you must apply Sun Block when exposed to the sun.
We are not responsible for any poor healing if you do not follow these guidelines.
If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to contact us.

Introduction to how tattooing works in THE BURNING EYE TATTOO studio
Today’s tattooing has developed to an incredible extent. The amounts of styles it has to offer is overwhelming however the real understanding and appreciation of good and honest tattooing comes from the years of knowledge tattooists have gathered as well as hard work, improvement and socialising within the industry.
The most important part is to develop ones own personal approach to tattooing to make it unique, recognisable and one of a kind.
To provide custom work we develop our own ways of working on subjects and ideas that are brought to us.
Custom tattooing is essential to THE BURNING EYE TATTOO studio. Each project has incredible potential to develop into something great if left to the tattooist with trust and confidence. This assurance can be gained by finding, studying and choosing the specific style desired. We understand that for some individuals, knowledge and familiarity plays a massive role in getting tattooed, and for that reason we recommend having a consultation before to get acquainted with each other’s ideas.
To provide you with a unique piece, we recommend you do not bring examples of already existing tattoos, and allow the basic idea to be developed during the meeting with your tattooist.
In order to achieve the best result, we prefer to work directly with the client on the day of the appointment. This allows for a more customised tattoo. However some of our tattooists prefer to discuss and design the projects beforehand- just depends on what type of tattoo and which tattooist you choose.
By having you around while drawing up the design, it allows us to offer some ideas on the spot and helps achieve a result that the client as well as the tattooist are completely satisfied with.
If you are a dedicated customer and you are already familiar with the tattooists work, designs can be prepared before or alternatively you can simply chose a design from their flash drawings.
Our studio policy strictly DOES NOT copy, recreate or continue some other professional’s work.
Cover-ups are another very important part of our daily work.
They are usually more complex and therefore require more time and focus in designing something over the old, badly done or damaged piece. Sometimes, depending on the cover-up, ideas and options can be limited and some motifs can work better than others.
Usually this is designed directly onto the body using high contrast lines, smart and clean execution of design and the new piece will guarantee you a long lasting, improved effect.
Pretty much any piece can be reworked and improved.
For any questions feel free to contact us.
The purpose consulting before hand is an essential and effective start off point. We welcome the client with their initial ideas and references to help us provide them with a custom piece.
To prevent repetitive and copied work we would like to ask our clients not to gather existing tattoo imagines as it restricts and blocks new and unique ideas.
Abstract concepts are the perfect seed for an exclusive result.
A client’s open-mindedness and trust towards their tattooist play a crucial role in the tattoo process and helps the procedure move forward smoothly.
Working material like informational references are necessary for more specific subjects (e.g. portraits, numerals and lettering).
During the discussion with the tattooist, an approximate amount of time and cost will be set depending on a project’s complexity and size.
On the day of your appointment it is an essential part of the process to prepare yourself mentally and physically, as the tattooing will take a lot of time, concentration and energy from both the client and the tattooist.
A good nights rest and positive mind attitude will make the whole process smoother and more enjoyable. Eating and hydrating will also play a big role on the day.
After you meet your tattooist and the work is finalised, the session will begin.
Depending on the project’s size and its detail, the estimated preparation time will be given to you.
This stage includes discussing the details of the motif and its concept as well as its style of execution.
Next the tattooist will design and draw up the image and if the client is satisfied, the piece will be placed on the desired body part with a stencil.
Once the design is applied, the tattooist will set up their equipment.
For those of you who are new to the tattooing, we understand that this is an exciting and sometimes frightening process. It’s in your and our best interest to make you feel comfortable and at ease.
Please do not turn up for the appointment with bunch of friends! Maximum one person (depending on the tattooist) is allowed with the customer. We ask this in respect to other customers’ comfort as well as to prevent over crowding in the studio.
