To give you an approximation of how long your tattoo will take and how much it will cost, please email us an image or idea of your desired tattoo, the size (in cm or inches), position on the body and colour.
If you need to work out extensive details of your tattoo, please book in for a free consultation.
Do tattoos Hurt?
Depending on the area on the body and your own tolerance, your tattoo will hurt more or less.

After leaving Armoury Tattoo we recommend leaving any covering we applied ON for 2 hours. Once this has passed you may lightly wash your skin, apply Bepanthen (or another occlusive cream) and put on a clean item of clothing. Ensure to do this with clean hands and follow the aftercare sheet provided for more instructions.
