When we decided on opening a tattoo studio in Dublin, we didn’t want another run of the mill flash studio where your tattoos are chosen from a catalogue. Our idea was to create a place where you can get an original personalised tattoo designed by the artists that are most suitable to the style

and type of tattoo you want to get. We put a lot of effort to get the best guest artists from all over the world to provide a variety of different styles people can chose from. We are trying to push the art of tattooing further, to change people’s perceptions on tattooing and tattooed people. To show

that ink, needles and skin are just different mediums to show someone’s individuality. Skin for us is the best canvas and tattoos are just another type of art that you carry with you forever.

How your piercing heals is up to you.

Chemicals will not make you heal faster! Quite in the opposite in fact, chemicals of any kind will upset the balance within your newly forming cells and create a condition in which your piercing will heal tremendously slow.

Use Saline solution, it’s the key to quick healing! It’s PH balanced to our bodies. The easiest and most accurate way to acquire saline is in the form of saline solution for contact lenses.

Non-iodized sea salt will always state on the package ‘’this salt does not contain iodine, a necessary nutrient’’. Check the label before you purchase. DO NOT USE table salt or Epson salt.

Always wash your hands before touching your piercing.

Mix 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt with half pint of boiling water, wait for the solution to cool then using a cotton bud, gently clean around your piercing to remove any lymph (crusts) away from the piercing, do this 3 to 4 times a day, then gently dry the piercing. Do not touch or twist the jewellery.

For oral piercings (inside your mouth)

Use an alcohol free mouth wash every time you eat, drink or smoke. It’s recommended to keep using the mouthwash until you return for your change down to the correct size jewellery.

We offer a laser tattoo removal treatment at Dublin ink. We use an nd:yag removal machine to break down old and unwanted tattoos using the body to safely and gradually remove the ink from the skin.Sessions start at 40 a session and consultations are free for more information please pop into the studio.
