Step.02About Your New Tattoo

So, on the day of your appointment, one of our artists will sit down with you and talk to you about the design, where you want it placed,etc. At that time, we will provide you an estimate for this tattoo.

*Keep in mind that tattoos are permanent. The tattoo will be with you for the rest of your life so we want to make sure you are comfortable with every aspect. Our staff will work hard to ensure that you are satisfied.

*Please remember to bring a photo ID with you.

Step.03Tattoo Reservation, Waiver and the Deposit

Once you are satisfied with all aspects, we want to set up a date for you to get your tattoo. We will need you to sign a waiver. To finalize your reservation, we will need you to make a 10,000 yen deposit. This will be deducted from your total bill. For large designs that can not be completed in one day, we will need to ask for a larger deposit and decide on days that work for you and the artist.

Getting Tattooed on your First Visit

For many reasons, we really prefer to plan ahead and schedule our customers. However, we welcome walk-in customers, and will attempt to have you tattooed, subject to staff availability. But please don’t count on same-day tattooing, especially if you are visiting Osaka from a long way away.

Before Your Tattoo

Step.04Precautions the day before

Please get a good nights’ rest the night before.

Please be moderate (if you must drink at all) in your drinking the night before. Drinking the day of your tattoo is strictly forbidden.

Watch out for the sun, especially in the summertime. If your sunburn is serious, we may not be able to tattoo.

Step.05Concerns on the day

Be sure you have showered and are physically clean.

Be sure you have eaten well and are physically rested.

Wear clothes that are appropriate for tattooing. If necessary, you can bring them with you and change at our studio.

If you are not feeling well on the day or have a prescription from your doctor, please consult with us.

After Your Tattoo

Moist Healing Care

Your lovely new tattoo is made of up many, many small perforations in the skin which have had pigment implanted. There are two basic schools of thought in regard to the best way to heal these wounds, aptly named the dry method and the moist method. We here at HYPER SPACE follow the moist method. This is also the method recommended by medical practitioners. We place an appropriate amount of Vaseline or glycerin on the tattoo to ensure that the tattoo is maintained in a moist environment. One of the moist significant benefits of this moist method is that it retains most of the clear healing liquid that your body secretes naturally. This liquid later hardens and forms scabs, utilizing the healing power of the body to rejuvenate itself.

Precautions after your Tattoo

As a general rule, we recommend moist healing but sometimes there is a variation among clients and sometimes we recommend different methods. After the artist is done, he will give you instructions as per how to best take care of your tattoo.

The tattooed area will eventually form a light scab. Please resist the urge to pick at it or ‘help’ the scab come off. Picking at the scabs will likely result in a loss of pigment and may greatly affect the overall outcome of the tattoo. Please refrain from doing this.

Please refrain from drinking heavily for two days after your tattoo.

Please avoid direct sunlight soon after your tattoo.

A beautiful tattoo is only possible with agreement and cooperation between the artist and the person being tattooed. You must follow the artists’ instructions to have a beautiful outcome.
