Hoe oud moet ik zijn om een tatoeage te laten zetten?

De minimum leeftijd in onze studio is 18 jaar. Geen uitzonderingen. Neem dus een geldig legitimatiebewijs mee!

Met deze strikte regelgeving beschermen wij minderjarigen tegen een tatoeage waar ze uiteindelijk spijt van zullen krijgen.

Doet het pijn?

Ja, maar iedereen ervaart het op een andere manier. Sommige plekken op het lichaam zijn gevoeliger dan andere. Er zijn zelfs klanten die zeggen dat ze verslaafd zijn geraakt aan de pijn!

Hoe boek ik een afspraak?

U kunt een afspraak maken via het afsprakenformulier, WhatsApp of in onze tattooshop.


How old do I need to be to get a tattoo?

The minimum age at our studio is 18 years old. No exceptions. So please bring a valid ID!
With this strict regulation we also protect minors from getting a tattoo they will eventually regret.

Does it hurt?

Yes, but everyone experiences it in a different way. Some places on the body are more sensitive than others. There are customers who claim that they are addicted to the pain!

How do I book an appointment?

Fill in the contact form or send us a mail (info@inkdistrict.nl) with a detailed description of your preferred design, style, placement on body and size. You can also add some inspiration pictures (max 5). We will then get back to you as soon as possible.

Please note: we don’t copy existing tattoos or designs. The tattooist will make a new design based on the sent inspiration. For text tattoos take a look on www.dafont.com and select your font, this will save a lot of time. For tattoos in foreign languages, please carefully check spelling and meaning as we are no translators!

You are also welcome to come into the shop and talk to whoever is available at that moment. We will gladly inform you where needed!

Do I need to pay a deposit for an appointment?

Yes. For every appointment we ask for a deposit of 50 EUR for the smaller to medium projects or 100 EUR for the larger projects, which can be paid at the shop or transferred through our bank. Deposits are applied to the final price of your tattoo and should be made within 48 hours of making the appointment!

Till a week up to your appointment, it is possible to cancel or reschedule your appointment without additional costs. If your appointment is less than a week away, deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable!

Deposits for guest artists are non-refundable!

How can I make an appointment with a guest artist?

On our social media we advertise when and which guest artists will arrive. We always publish contact details so guest artists can be contacted directly regarding project and price.

Are touch-ups included?

We have several fine line specialists in our team. If you get a fine line design done, it is possible that some lines will become lighter than others after a few weeks. This is no problem, just send us a message within 6 months and we can arrange an appointment for a touch-up. This is included in the price!

This is strictly if you got a tattoo done by one of our current regular artists. We will not touch-up any work of our former or guest artists!

What are your prices?

This depends on the artist but our minimum shop price is 100 EUR. Final price depends on size, detail of the design, location on the body and finally which artist.

If we have all information we can always give you a price estimate!

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, pin, credit cards and even bitcoins. Our guest artists only accept cash!

Can I bring someone with me to the appointment?

Of course you can come with someone but we only have very limited seating at the front of the shop. The back of the shop is prohibited for any family members or friends you bring along. Only clients who are getting tattooed are allowed in the tattoo area!

We really really love kids! However, due to hygiene standards and concentration of our artists, we do not think a tattooshop is the right place for them to hang out with us!

Any tips before getting a tattoo?

We recommend that you have a good night’s rest, have a good meal and stay hydrated before your appointment. We can only work with you if you are 100% sober, being under the influence of alcohol or any drugs will get you removed from the shop. Also please do not take any painkillers as this will dilute your blood and possibly affect your tattoo and the healing process.

If you have a larger project or get a tattoo on a sensitive spot make sure you are wearing comfortable clothing and we would not advise wearing any white as black ink can cause an ugly stain!

Also keep in mind that taking care of your tattoo is a big responsibility. We advise against swimming, exposing your tattoo to the sun or exercising the following weeks after your appointment!

How do I take care of my tattoo?

Aftercare instructions
  • A new tattoo is similar to an abrasion or wound. It takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks for the wound and the skin around it to be healed.
  • If the tattoo is covered with a sterile compression or household foil, you can remove it after 3 to 5 hours. If your tattoo is covered with a second skin plaster this can be taken off after 24 hours, preferably under the shower.
Treat the uncovered tattoo as follows:
  • Wash the tattoo twice a day with a mild fragrance free soap;
  • After washing, pat it dry with single use paper towels or a clean towel;
  • Apply with a thin layer of a cream you received from the tattooist or which he or she recommended to you. The bigger your tattoo is, the more cream you will need to apply.
During the healing process:
  • Try to avoid touching your tattoo if you can (also wash your hands first before you take care of the wound);
  • Do not scratch the tattoo;
  • Do not cover the tattoo with tight or dirty clothes;
  • Do not cover the tattoo with bandages or foil;
  • Avoid baths, swimming pools, sea water, saunas and steam baths for entire duration of the healing process.
  • Do not expose the tattoo to sunlight or solarium during healing process.

After healing, the tattooed skin remains very sensitive to sunlight. Always use sunscreen (highest factor).

Caution: Contact your doctor if extreme redness, swelling, bleeding, wound fluid, color change or chronic pain occurs.

Can I get a bit of ink tattooed to check if I’m allergic?

No, we don’t test ink on people. Please check this with your GP or dermatologist. This is the safest way. If you have other allergies or sensitive skin carefully research if getting a tattoo will not trigger a reaction for you. Always let us know if you have any allergies or a skin condition!

If you have pain or your skin reacts to the ink we always advise contacting your doctor!

What precautions will you be taking with the corona virus?

We have made some alterations in the studio to make sure it is a safe and 1.5m proof environmont. Everyday we are constantly monitoring the health of all our employees and customers and have created some extra shop guidelines. Please, for your own safety and that of others, read carefully and abide by the following rules:

  • Stay at home if you or one of next of kin have the following complaints: Coughing, cold, runny nose, sore throat, fever or respiratory problems. If you are not certain, still contact the studio as soon as possible.
  • Keep 1.5m distance from each other inside and in front of the studio. Respect each other’s space.
  • Come to the appointment by yourself, you cannot bring anyone with you for support. The waiting room is currently closed.
  • Wash your hands with soap and disinfect your hands immediately after entering the studio and after use of the bathroom.
  • Pay with card as much as possible. However, we still accept cash.
  • Follow instructions of shop manager and artist closely.
