How much pain should I expect? Though everyone’s pain level is different but there are other factors as well. Location on the body. The general rule is anywhere that the skin is closer to the bone will tend to be more painful. 

Is there anything that I can do to make the experience less painful? Yes, first pick a shop and an artist that you are comfortable with. Listen to music or watch a movie. Anything that helps you to relax will make the experience more comfortable. 

What about infection? We will review all after care instructions with you prior to starting any work. We will also provide you with a small take home antiseptic cream to use. Make sure wherever you go that the environment is clean and that they are using disposal needles, gloves, towels and etc.  

What if I want or need privacy? Derailed Ink offers privacy screens, please let us know if you would like this option. 

How long will it take? Depends on the artwork you are having done. The artist can provide you with an estimate. 

Can my work be done over multiple sessions? Yes, please work with your artist.
