♦ Do you offer tattoos and piercings?
Yes, we offer both tattoos and piercings.
♦ Does getting a tattoo hurt?
It depends. Receiving a tattoo is mildly painful for most. The first time is always the worst. After that it becomes much easier and less painful. Also it is more painful if you get the tattoo on certain parts of your body such as your feet. The pain is not extreme though, and some people even report them as not being painful at all.
♦ How much does it cost to get a tattoo?
The cost varies on the size of your tattoo, the complexity, and where you put it on your body. Our prices start at $40.00 and go up from there. Viper Tattoo Shop charges a little more than most tattoo shops because of the expertise of the artists that work here. A tattoo is permanent so we feel that you should pay for quality so you don't regret it later.
♦ How do I care for my new tattoo?
Leave the wrapping on for 5-6 hours. Remove wrapping and then wash with warm water and soap. Pat dry. Do not put a bandage on the tattoo. the skin needs to breathe in order to heal. Before scab forms apply Aquaphor 3 or 4 times daily. Stay out of chlorine pools, salt water, and direct sun exposure while tattoo is healing. DON'T PICK AT THE SCAB. Tattoos usually heal in two weeks time.
♦ Will it fade?
All tattoos will fade over time. But we do touch ups for all tattoos that have been performed here and all you need to do is bring in the receipt for the tattoo.
♦ Can I bring my own tattoo designs?
Yes, of course you can bring in your own tattoo ideas. You can bring in your own design or pick one of the hundreds of designs that line our walls. The easiest way to show it to one of our artists is with a picture. You can bring in a physical picture or even on media storage such as a USB or SD card and we can print it out. We can even draw out any design you might have in mind as well.
♦ Is it safe to get a tattoo?
Viper Tattoo Shop only tattoos under extremely sanitary conditions. Every needle is new. Everything is disposed of after every tattoo, and the entire area sanitized. Our procedure consists of individually wrapped instruments that are only opened in front of you.
