FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How long does a tattoo take to heal, and what can I expect during that time?

A new tattoo may feel like a sunburn initially. It's normal to see some dry skin or light scabbing after a few days. Don't pick at scabs or scrub them off — let the tattoo heal naturally, following our aftercare instructions. Healing typically takes between 4 days to 3 weeks.

What do I need to do after getting a tattoo?

Your tattoo artist will provide specific aftercare instructions. Generally, you should protect the tattoo from direct sunlight, avoid prolonged soaking, and use no petroleum-based products initially. We offer professional tattoo aftercare products at WANDAL ART to ensure optimal healing.

Does it really hurt to get a tattoo, and why?

Yes, getting a tattoo involves some pain. The tattoo needle pierces your skin at a controlled speed, deep enough to ensure the tattoo's permanence but not so deep as to cause excessive damage. The sensation is a result of the needle penetrating the dermis layer of your skin.

Is it safe to get a tattoo?

Absolutely. We ensure every tool and piece of equipment is sterilized or disposable. All needles/cartridges are single-use, opened in front of you for assured safety.
