No. Too many people in the studio can be distracting to the artist who is trying to do your tattoo. At Kapala Tattoo we prefer a quiet and intimate setting, both in the artists’ rooms and in our waiting room. If you require support for medical or mental health reasons, please notify our Shop Manager while booking your consultation over the phone so we can make an exception. We want your experience to be comfortable and positive as possible.
Eat properly before you come in for an appointment, and bring yourself enough drinks and snacks to last for your session, low blood sugar and tattoos don’t mix well. Come well rested, showered and free of any lotions or perfumes. You can shave the area you will be getting tattooed the day of your appointment, if you’d like.
