Tiny Tattoos

We are qualified Permanent Makeup Artists (PMU) and a tiny tattoo can be performed by a PMU artist so it is important to remember that a tiny tattoo is still considered as a cosmetic tattoo.

Tiny tattoos are exactly what they sound like. They’re small tattoos that can be placed just about anywhere on the body. A tiny tattoo is the perfect first tattoo and they take less time and is less painful.

What can I expect from the procedure?

Tiny Tattoos can take anywhere between 15 to 30 mins depending on your design. Our salon is very relaxing and your tattoo will be performed in a private room. Once you have chosen your design, we choose the placement then work our magic. It is over before you know it.

Instructions

Post-Treatment

Avoid the following after your treatment

  • Getting the treated area wet will cause the pigment to peel off
  • Touching the treated area
  • Using soaps, cleansers, creams or makeup
  • Facial treatments such eyelash or eyebrow tinting, plucking, electrolysis etc.
  • Taking hot baths
  • Sunbathing, using sunbeds or swimming
  • Any form of bleach or depilatory products

Treatment

Tattoo Aftercare

  • Make sure to drink plenty water and keep hydrated. This will help your skin from drying up and promoting a good environment for your tattoo to heal.
  • Apply the aftercare cream with a cotton tip ensuring the area is always moist. (a good indication when to apply is when it feels dry or tight)
  • Keep the area dry from water for 48 hours. Once you start washing the area, pat dry lightly and then apply the after-care cream.
  • Avoid excessive exercise, strenuous activities for the next 48 hours. This can cause infection to the area.
  • Don’t pick the treated area and allow the natural healing process. Prepare for small chunks of pigment to peel off.
  • Expect the area to be darker and more intense for the first 3-4 days

Frequently Asked Questions

The time it takes to get a tiny tattoo can vary widely depending on the design’s complexity and the tattoo artist’s proficiency. Generally, a simple, tiny tattoo can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. However, keep in mind that this doesn’t include the time taken for the initial consultation, stencil creation, and preparation.

Pain is subjective and can vary from person to person. The discomfort experienced during tattooing is often described as a constant prickling or scratching sensation. However, tiny tattoos tend to be less painful because they’re usually completed quickly, meaning less time to endure the discomfort. The location of the tattoo also plays a significant role in the level of pain experienced.

The cost of a tiny tattoo can vary greatly depending on the artist’s experience, the complexity of the design, and the studio’s location. Some artists may have a minimum charge, typically around $99 to $150, regardless of the size of the tattoo. Always check with your chosen artist or studio for specific pricing information.

Caring for a tiny tattoo is the same as for any other size. Keep it clean, avoid soaking it in water, and apply a healing ointment or lotion as directed by your tattoo artist. Also, avoid exposure to direct sunlight and refrain from scratching or peeling the area as it heals.

All tattoos will fade over time, but tiny tattoos, especially those with fine lines, may fade faster due to the smaller amount of ink used. However, proper care can extend the lifespan of your tattoo. This includes using sunscreen to protect it from sun exposure and keeping the skin moisturised. Touch-ups may also be necessary over time to keep your tiny tattoo looking its best.
