How To Prepare
Getting a tattoo is a big decision and not something you should do on a whim. The best tattoos are planned for. Think about the design and get something that you feel passionately about. Look at the portfolios of our artists and read the bios. Schedule a free consultation with one or two of the artists that seem the most appropriate for what you want. If you're not sure stop in and we will guide you to the right artist for your piece. The artist you choose will work with you to figure out proper size and they will give you their price, a time estimate and schedule your appointment. We do take walk-ins as we can, but appointments are recommended.
There are various medical conditions and medications that may possibly affect your tattoo. Some general guidelines are provided here, but we recommend consulting your doctor with any questions you may have.
If you have a blood clotting disorder such as hemophilia, make sure you have taken your medicine and the disorder is under control.
If you take a blood-thinning medication, such as aspirin, warfarin, or other anti-clotting agent, speak with your artist about whether and how this medication will affect your ability to get a tattoo.
If you have diabetes, it is especially important to eat well and check your blood sugar before your appointment.
If you have a blood borne illness, such as HIV or hepatitis, please disclose this information to your artist for their safety as well as your own. Any medical issues you discuss with your artist at Miraculous Creations will be kept confidential.
If you have a cold, flu, or other temporary illness, your immune system is compromised because it is already working to heal the illness. You can still get tattooed, at your artist’s discretion, but be aware that healing may take a few extra days. If you have a fever, you cannot get tattooed. Please call as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment so that you do not lose your deposit.
If you have a rash, burn, broken skin, or sunburn in the area that will be tattooed, you must wait until the skin has healed before it can be tattooed. Some scars can be covered with tattoos, but they must be fully healed.
How to prepare for your appointment:
Put your appointment in your calendar so you don't forget. We will send you a text and email confirmation and reminder.
We do not work on anyone under the influence of alcohol or mind altering drugs.
Do not consume alcohol the night before your appointment.
Eat a good meal before getting tattooed.
Try to get a good night sleep the night before.
A tattoo is a wound so please shower and wear clean, comfortable, loose fitting clothing to get your tattoo.
On the day of your appointment, do not apply lotion, makeup, tanning creams, or other products to the area that will be tattooed.
Do not shave the area in advance. The tattoo artist will shave your skin immediately before the tattoo.
Know the price and be prepared and thank your artist by planning for an appropriate tip.
