TATTOO

Warning! Tattoos from Hell are addictive.

TATTOO IN PRAGUE

DON’T ASK JUST FOR A TATTOO, ASK FOR A LEGEND!

We see tattoos as artworks, that we put with love and care for the whole life under your skin.

Our tattooers are artists, they have unique styles each and they don’t tattoo the most common motives.

Check out our Facebook and Instagram, to see works of our tattoo artists. Each one of them has their own style and can offer a unique design, that’s why it’s very important to find the right artist for you. Spend time thinking about your original motive. Don’t look for finished tattoos (we don’t copy tattoos). If you need inspiration, try Google, Pinterest, your favourite books or even bring a sketch of your own. Examples of motives we don’t tattoo: words, dreamcatchers, feather with birds coming out of it, dandelion seeds flying out, infinity symbol, standard tribal tattoos,…

TATTOO CARE

How to care for a new tattoo:

Tattoo care can vary depending on the type and location of the tattoo. Our tattoo artists will always give you instructions after the tattoo session.

  • After the tattoo is finished, it is covered with a protective foil.

  • Leave the foil on till the evening, and ideally also through the first night.

  • After removing the foil, wash the place with antibacterial soap or special foam, which you can buy in Hell, and lukewarm water. Dry with a clean towel and let it dry for 10-15 minutes.

  • Then lubricate with a thin layer of tattoo care cream. It is available in Hell.

  • After another 10 minutes, wipe it with a clean napkin to remove excess oil and to allow the skin to breathe.

  • During the first week take care of the tattoo this way twice a day, morning and evening. Later, just once a day.

  • Freshly tattooed skin excretes tissue fluid. If it dries and gets stuck to your clothes, do not tear it, but soak in clean water. Otherwise you can damage the tattoo.

  • After a few days due to the healing process skin flakes start to form on the tattoo. Do not remove the flakes; you could also remove part of the tattoo.

  • 2 weeks after tattooing do not bathe in indoor or outdoor pools. Instead of bathing take a shower.

  • 2 weeks after tattooing protect the tattoo from dirt and irritation.

  • For at least a month do not expose the tattoo to sun or solarium.

WHAT IS GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT TATTOO?

Practical information, advices and experiences with tattoos

The Czech law requires that a person under the age of 18 have a written confirmation that their parents or legal guardians agree with the tattoo. Therefore, it is necessary that you bring a completed and signed form. If you are not 18 yet, download and print this form and bring it with you completed and signed. If you are not even 17 yet, we need to meet your parents in person. You can take them with you to consultation before tattooing, for example. If you are under 16, your parents must accompany you to the tattoo appointment.

We reserve the right to insist on the presence of parents at your tattoo appointment.

Each Tattoo done in Hell is preceeded by a personal consultation. You can simply stop by in our opening hours. There is no need to book in advance for consultations. We will consult the tattoo personally at the reception. We will discuss the details of your future tattoo (as size, placement or design) and we will find out, who would be the best tattoo artist for you. For a personal consultation, bring a selected motif or picture for inspiration. It will help us with understanding your vision of your future tattoo. For example, images can be printed from an internet gallery, copied from books, or uploaded to a flash drive.

After a personal consultation we will arrange the date of your appointment together. For the appointment we collect a deposit of 1500 CZK to 3000 CZK according to the lenght of your appointment. Of course, the deposit will be deducted from the final price of tattoo. If you don’t show up or cancel your reservation less than 3 days (72 hours) in advance, the deposit will be fully forfeited. The date of your appointment can be canceled only in person in the studio or via phone. It is not possible to cancel your appointment via e-mail, SMS or Facebook.

Tattoo appointments can be canceled only via phone or in person. If you wish to cancel your appointment for any reason, call us at +420 775 353 696 no later than 3 days (72 hours) in advance. Appointments can be also canceled outside working hours at weekends. It is not possible to cancel a tattoo appointment via e-mail, SMS or Facebook. You can collect the full deposit at our reception. If you don’t show up on your appointment or cancel it later than 3 days (72 hours) in advance, the deposit will be forfeited in full. Thank you for your understanding.

Usually a tattoo is completely healed after one month. For more details about how to take care of your fresh tattoo look into the section on „Tattoo Care“.

Of course, to get a tattoo during summer is possible. You just need to be more careful about your tattoo. Follow our advices in the section „Tattoo Care“ plus the advices following below.

  • Do not sunbathe at least a week before the tattoo.
  • Protect fresh tattoos from the sun for at least 5 weeks and keep it under clothing or other textiles. Otherwise it will fade very quickly in the sun.
  • The skin on the new tattoo is very prone to sunburn. Use a cream with a high UV factor (even a factor of 100 UVA and UVB – you can get it in a pharmacy).
  • Sunbathing a freshly healed white tattoo paint can cause the color to turn yellow. This is because the skin darkens over the color. This change in pigmentation itself disappears again after the skin is lightened.
  • At least 14 days after the tattoo, skip any swimming in the pool, sea or lake. Take a shower instead of bathing.
  • Keep your tattoo clean and dry. In the summer we sweat more and therefore it is necessary to wash the tattoo more often with antibacterial soap, wash it carefully and dry the tattoo with a clean towel.
  • Pay close attention to places such as nails (rubbing on sandals, clogging infections by walking in dust …) and all places that are exposed over the summer. There is a risk of infection.
  • If you want to be tattooed in places like your forearm or neck, you should postpone it for autumn. These places are not easy to protect from sun in summer.

Placement of your future tattoo

First, think about where you would like to have your tattoo. If you do not know how to choose a place or it is not the most important for you, it is not a problem to decide on a personal consultation in the studio.

Theme

You don’t have to have every small detail of your tattoo designed, but it’s a good idea to have a basic idea of how your tattoo should look like and what it should be like. Animals, characters, flowers, symbols or inscription? Should the tattoo be colored, shaded or just black?

Get inspired on the Internet

We recommend you to use Google Image Search to research different designs of your theme. Look for pictures rather than existing tattoos. Find a few motifs or designs that appeal to you. Of course, you can draw a tattoo yourself. We like originality and individuality and we do not fancy tattoos from the catalogue. Of course, we will be happy to help you modify your theme or design it directly. Check out our gallery to see what kind of tattooes our artists can do.

For inscriptions, you can find a variety of fonts, includind preview, at Dafont.com.

Personal consultation

Take your pictures (printed or on a flash disk) and come to our studio in the opening hours. There is no need to arrange an appointment for consultation. We will discuss the theme and location of the tattoo with you. We also estimate the preliminary price of the tattoo. The exact price can be agreed with the tattoo artist before the tattoo. It is also possible to set a price ceiling that we will not exceed.

During the consultation we will find out which one of our artists is the best choice for you. We will arrange a date of your appointment together and we will also collect a deposit of 1500 CZK. Of course, the deposit will be deducted from the final price of the tattoo.

If you don’t show up on your appointment or cancel it later than 3 days (72 hours) in advance, the deposit will be forfeited in full. An appointment can be canceled only in person in the studio or via phone. It is not possible to cancel a tattoo appointment via e-mail or SMS.

The day before the tattoo

Go to bed early to be well rested for the next day. Do not drink alcohol or caffeine drinks (coffee, cola).

Day T (as tattoo)

Do not drink alcohol or caffeine drinks (coffee, cola). Even if you feel nervous, eat, because with a full belly you will handle the process better.

In our tattoo shop, you will meet the tattoo artist who will tattoo you. Together you discuss the selected theme, placement and the price of the tattoo. Artist prepares the sketch for you then. Feel free to talk about what you want, what you like and dislike. This tattoo is for you and you have to speak up and state your opinion! Once the sketch is approved, the tattoo site will be sanitized properly and possibly shaved with a disposable razor blade. The picture you approved will be transfered to your body using a special foil. Then you sit on the chair and wait until sterile workplace and sterile tools are prepared.

After tattoo

When your tattoo is finished, your artist will wrap the fresh tattoo in a protective foil and explain to you how to take care of it.

We use certified, top quality tattoo inks approved for use in the EU that meet all prescribed standards. Some of them do not contain glycerol and are therefore suitable for vegans. Specifically, we use Eternal Ink, Panthera Ink, World Famous Tatoo Ink, Dynamic Ink and Intenze Ink.

Organic ingredients are used in the production of Eternal Ink, the pigment is made on a water basis, the colors do not contain glycerol, so they are also suitable for vegans. Eternal Ink colors are clear and have good opacity.

Panthera Ink tattoo colors do not change their shade and remain the same as when applied for many years. The colors are nontoxic and they are sterilized by gamma radiation.

Yes. The idea of vegansim and vegetarianism speaks to us. Most people from Hell are either vegetarians or vegans.That’s why we also use vegan colors. For example Eternal Ink brand does not contain animal-based, but plant-based glycerol, and their inks are therefore suitable for vegans. If you prefer these colors, just remind your tattoo artist.

Tattooing is more unpleasant than painful. It could be compared, for example, to depilation or intensive scratching. Of course, it depends on each person, their current mental and physical condition (if you feel good, it hurts less) and also on the site of the tattoo. Tattoos over bones hurt more than on muscle, for example. In the picture you will find an approximate description of how the tattoo hurts. Picture by www.kerky.cz.

Jak bolí teto

Because the integrity of the skin is touched during the tatoo process, the tattoo site secretes tissue fluid with a small amount of blood.

However, these are only tiny droplets that the artist continuously wipes away together with the tattoo color. It is also important not to dilute blood unnecessarily before tattooing. Alcohol and caffeine beverages cause the arteries to expand, blood flows faste

Blood then washes out the paint and you certainly do not want that. Therefore, it is better to avoid these drinks the day before the tattoo and on the tattoo day, too.

A scar is a different type of tissue than the intact skin, despite that fact you can be tattooed over it. In Hell we have experience with tattoos over the scars. Even further, because our salon performs scarification (artistic scarring), we have our own specialists who know a lot about scars and scarring. Some do not feel the tattoo at all in the scar site, for some the pain is more intense than in the surrounding areas. There is also the possibility to cover bad looking scars completly with a tattoo.

No, tattoos are only possible around it. We care about your health and birthmarks are very sensitive. Therefore, it is better not to interfere with them. Tattoos around birthmark are no problem.

Yes you can. Some tattoo inks may contain minimal trace amounts of metals, resulting in special magnetic tingling or itching in the area of magnetic resonance imaging, which however rarely happens. Moreover, these feelings do not persist and disappear quickly. Of course, the doctor or radiologist should be informed in advance that you have a tattoo. Therefore, tattoos from a good professional salon should not be a problem. Problems with magnetic resonance imaging are more often in a case of unprofessional or prison tattoos , which often contain inks of dubious quality and composition. But if you have a tattoo from a good studio made with quality and professional colors, there is nothing to worry about.

Diabetes and tattoo do not exclude each other. However, the body of diabetics is more difficult to heal and the healing process usually takes a longer time. This fact could increase the risk of infection during the healing time. Therefore, ask your doctor whether you can have a tattoo or not. He knows your health state and better estimates what your body can handle and what it not optimal. For a mild level diabetes this shouldn’t be a problem. However, always consult with your doctor. Do not forget to tell us that you have diabetes in advance so we are prepared for your possible reaction. Stress (before and during tattooing) raises your blood sugar level and the tattoo artist needs to be prepared for this possibility.

Patients with diabetes are generally harder to heal, so do not neglect taking care of your new tattoo and pay close attention to it. In case of any healing problems, please feel free to contact us.

We don’t do temporary tattoos in Hell. “Temporary tattoo”, or “5-year tattoo”, means that permanent make-up ink is used, instead of regular approved tattoo ink. But be careful, make-up tattooed with this color disappears over time. This is due to the permanent exposure of these areas (eyes, mouth) to the sun and also to the different structure of skin cells in these areas. “Temporary tattoos”, (permanent make-up tattoos in other places) usually do not disappear, they only fade and lose contours. The only solution is a cover-up by a standard tattoo or laser removal.

No. We love things that last, and our tattoo artists are so good that it would be a pity if the tattoo disappeared over time.

I’m currently on antibiotics medication. Can I get a tattoo anyway?

If you are taking antibiotics, it means that your body is going through an illness. Getting tattooed when you are not completely healthy is not a good idea. If you are sick, better postpone your tattoo appointment.

Pregnancy and tattoos or breastfeeding and tattoos don’t exclude each other. Tattoos, however, are an intervention in the body, and therefore, during the tattoo process, substances that signal stress are released. These substances then pass into the blood during pregnancy and into breastfeeding milk. Although the baby would not be harmed, it is preferable to wait for tattoos after giving birth and after breastfeeding is concluded.

The tattoo and piercing studio Hell.cz was established in Prague in 2004. By approaching body modifications in its own way, it has quickly become a legend. In addition to tattooing and piercing, we also perform heavy physical modifications, we do suspension, i.e. hook hanginf, and we organize the Hell Party.
