WHAT TO DO PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION
Moisturize a few days before your session. Make sure your lotion does not contain any alcohol in it.
Eat before you arrive. We do not take long breaks. Bring snacks and water.
Drink plenty of water prior to your session.
Wear clothing that makes the area we are tattooing easily accessible. Whatever ink gets on your clothes will stain, so wear clothing you don't mind getting ink on.
Take the entire day off. I do not recommend making plans to leave at a certain time on the day of your session. Skin sensitivity, difficulty placing the stencil, and several other factors can slow down session progress. It is important that both I, as the artist, and you, as the client, do not feel stressed or rushed.
WHAT NOT TO DO PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION
Do not use any lotion or numbing cream 24 hours prior to your session
Do not shave. I will shave you before our session.
Do not consume Alcohol. This will dilute the blood and make your session longer unnecessarily.
Do not do drugs. This can cause hyper-sensitivity and cause you more pain.
Do not bring any pets or children with you.
THE PRIVATE STUDIO
We do not take walk-ins. You will receive the address to Sailia Studio once you pay a deposit and book a session. The studio is located in Warren, Rhode Island.
HOW MUCH WILL MY TATTOO COST?
HOW LONG WILL MY TATTOO TAKE?
Realism, Micro-Realism & Fine Line tattooing is a completely different process than other tattoo styles and the experience is unique. Many of the pinterest photos and masters you see on Instagram spend 8-10 hours on a palm- sized tattoo.
There are many factors involved in Realism that are not an issue when getting a more traditional styled tattoo. For example, as a Realistic Tattoo Artist, I have to lightly layer the ink on the skin as to not make it too sensitive or too red. The patience I have in doing this allows me to work without the skin getting irritated. By avoiding the redness, it allows me to actually see lighter shades being applied... therefore getting more accurate and realistic results.
My point is this:
It will take patience and time to layer and brush in the ink rather than "packing" it the way a traditional artist does. This is what makes a tattoo look realistic and allows for detail and accurate shading.
We will need to take several breaks to allow the skin to cool down (become less red) during the process
Most Tattoos will need at least a second session once the tattoo is fully healed. This allows me to see how the tattoo has healed and apply any corrections, highlights, and another layer of depth to the tattoo.
NO SHOW / MORE THAN 1 HOUR LATE

Unfortunately your deposit is non-refundable If you do not show or are more than 1 hour late to your appointment. This policy is in place because many people are on a waiting list and if you are more than an hour late, I could potentially call another client who is waiting for a slot.
