Things to Remember Before & After Getting Inked

  1. Make sure you’re already 18-years-old. It is against the law to tattoo a minor.
  2. Prepare the “idea, placement, sizing (in centimetres), budget and any questions you may have” for your desired custom tattoo.
  3. Be sure to have eaten within four hours prior to your tattoo appointment.
  4. Do not take any blood thinners (like aspirin or ibuprofen) within 24 hours of being inked.
  5. Do not consume alcoholic drinks within 8 hours.
  6. Once tattooed, leave the cling wrap on for an hour. Upon removal, you can then wash the tattooed area with plain soap and water.
  7. Once the area is air-dried, apply only a very small amount of ointment (such as After Ink, Bepanthen, or Lucas’ Paw Paw).
  8. Do not peel the scabs on the tattooed area or else the colour will drop out.
  9. Do not soak the newly tattooed area or do not go swimming just yet until the area is totally healed.

Mimsy’s Trailer Trash Tattoo is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Mondays to Saturdays. They are closed on Sundays. Walk-ins are welcome but you may also book in by calling 07 3848 5964 or emailing at trailertrashtattoo@hotmail.com.
