Chicano style has had a great influence with my style of work as an artist.

How Long Does It Take for A Tattoos to Heal?

After getting a tattoo, the outer layer of skin (the part you can see) typically heals within 2 to 3 weeks. While it may look and feel healed after this period has passed - don't be tempted into slacking off on your post-tattoo care!

How does the Tattoo process take?

Each session can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 8 hours, depending on how large your tattoo is and where it will be placed. The size of the area being covered affects not only its cost but the time and complexity of the project.

How do I take care of my tattoo?

Tattoo Aftercare. When it comes to caring for your new tattoo, the best thing you can do is keep up with a regimen of antibacterial soap and water. Apply ointment while washing twice daily in order not to irritate or inflame those sensitive areas!
