It is very important that you follow these pre-treatment instructions, to ensure that we are able to proceed with the treatment.
If you are unsure about something and need to clarify information, please give us a call on 0420 634 904 as soon as possible.
- For all clients – ensure that you have completed an online or in-personal consultation form, to ensure that there are no issues with proceeding to treatment.
- Lip tattoo – it is advisable that all clients undergoing this procedure visit a pharmacy a few days prior to their appointment to start a course of antiviral tablets (Famvir, Zovirax etc) prior to their treatment, and continue a few days after. Please seek your pharmacists advice on this. This is to prevent cold sore outbreaks – as if you have ever had one previously (even as a child) the procedure can trigger an outbreak.
- Please ensure your timely arrival – cosmetic tattoo is a fairly permanent procedure, and cannot be rushed. Clients who arrive too late (more than 15 minutes) for their artist to properly complete the procedure will need to reschedule, and deposits are non-refundable.
