FAQ

1. HYGIENIC ASPECTS

A tattoo is a medical procedure. That's why we set the highest standards when it comes to safer work processes at PARDON PARIS. You expect the best for your skin. It's our pleasure to make that sure. No effort is too big to ensure that our clients are tattooed with only the highest quality materials. We are always up-to-date. That insures we use the latest standards and regulations any time.

2. COVER UP

A satisfactory result of a Cover-Up tattoo is only possible if the existing tattoo which is to be covered up meets the basic requirements which are necessary to be able to carry out the new motif request. In this case, we need basically as with all other tattoo requests also a regular request via our request button on our website. Based on the photos of the tattoo to be covered up, our booking team will consult our cover-up experts. If we can accept your order in good conscience, the booking team will reach out to you to make an appointment for a personal consultation.

3. TOUCH UP

A touch up for your tattoo that was done at PARDON PARIS is included free of charge within the first 6 months. If you think your tattoo needs a touch up after the healing phase, feel free to contact  us by sending a photo of your tattoo to info@pardonparis.com We're happy to assist you to manage a touch up appointment with you.

4. AFTER CARE

Getting the tattoo is only half the battle. The way you care for your tattoo, it will look like later. Therefore, you will receive a hand out with instructions for the after care of your tattoo, directly after your tattoo appointment.

5. FINGER TATTOS

In this case, we unfortunately have to inform you that our experience has shown that we cannot guarantee that you will get the desired result with tattoos on your fingers. For this reason, we unfortunately have to say, we don't do finger tattoos. First point, there is the fact that you cannot take care of the tattoo as you should (due to everyday things like washing your hands, etc.). The second point is, that there is insufficient skin texture at fingers what means, that a perfect result can't be guaranteed.

6. FRIENDS & FAMILY

We prefer to see our clients alone. There are several reasons for this. Most important is the hygienic and space-related reason. But don't worry. We'll take care of you and if in doubt, we also hold your hand.

7. THE DATE IS COMING

Before your appointment, you will receive an email from us in which all important information are listed that you should urgently consider. Failure to follow the instructions can, in case of doubt, mean that we cannot tattoo you. Please make sure to follow our instructions. If you need any clarification, feel free to ask your consultant who gave you the appointment by email.

8. ILLNESS / MEDICATION

If you get sick before an appointment or on the day of the appointment, it is not a cause for concern. It is only important that you give us information in time so that we can cancel your appointment and offer you an alternative appointment. Please do not come up with the idea of coming to your appointment sick. This can have far-reaching effects on the entire PARDON PARIS team. If you have a specific question about taking medication, please contact us directly in advance.

9. WHITE TATTOOS

No, we do not make white tattoos. Similar to finger tattoos, your tattoo will not end up looking what you imagine. Since the human skin is not transparent, but generally has a certain color, your tattoo will hardly be visible. Because of this, the tattoo will not look satisfactory when it is healed. We aim to satisfy every customer in every way. Since we cannot guarantee this with such a tattoo, we cannot implement it either.

10. RIBS / SIDE OF THE BODY

In this case, it depends heavily on the subject. For motifs with many lines, we generally advise against a tattoo on the ribs. Because both on the ribs and in the inner upper arm, women in particular have poor connective tissue and risk blowouts quickly with tattoos in those areas, especially in the fine line style. This means that the lines can burst open a little, and thus the fine, filigree effect of the tattoo is lost. The tattoo then also looks a bit fuzzy and unclean. We would therefore recommend that you trust the advice of our booking team to plan your appointment as well as the design and tattoo placement together with you.

11. SCARS

Theoretically, tattoos can be applied to scars, but similar to cover-ups, they require a special form of advice and an experienced artist. It should be noted that the scars must have healed completely and no intense reddening can be seen. But we should see that in person or by photos first, so we can tell you more about the possibilities.

12. UNDER 18

Unfortunately, we generally only tattoo from the moment you turn 18. Therefore, we have also set up the checkbox in our contact form in which you have to prove that you are already 18 years old.

13. SPORTS / BATHING / SAUNA

We recommend a general sports break of 14 days. You should also avoid the beach and the sea for around two weeks. If you want to bathe in chlorinated water, you have to be patient for a week longer. Always remember: Those who take care particularly seriously in the initial phase will benefit from their tattoo for a lifetime.

14. TELEPHONE CALL

Unfortunately, to give us a call is not possible because we need some important information from you that we cannot get over the phone. Therefore, using our contact form is not only the easiest, but also the fastest. We'll get back soon by email.

15. DEPOSITS

The deposit is a guarantee for us that you really want to keep your appointment at the agreed time. It is not only a security for us, but also offers you a security that the booked appointment belongs only to you and your artist. Since the artist deals with your motif in advance and designs your individual motif for the appointment, we want to ensure that the motif gets on your skin at the end.

16. WAITING TIME

Unfortunately, there is no general answer to that point. In general, it's a waiting time of around 4 to 6 weeks. Occasionally, we can offer you an appointment with less waiting time. Good luck.

17. PLANNING FAR IN ADVANCE

We generally plan our appointments on a quarterly basis. This means that if you plan your appointment in autumn, we will start planning and assigning appointments around August. Having to wait half a year for a tattoo appointment is really no fun, so we try to keep the waiting time as short as possible and the organized planning as high as possible.

18. PAID DESIGNS FOR YOUR LOCAL TATTOO ARTIST

No, we don't offer this. The fundamentally individually designed and unique motifs of our resident and guest artists are only available at PARDON PARIS, together with the unique experience and atmosphere of our studios. However, our resident and guest artists are also on the road in our studio network, you can also come to an appointment in your area this way.

19. BECOMING A TATTOO ARTIST

Do you want to become a tattoo artist? Fortunately, we not only put breathtaking tattoos on the skin, but also train and certify the tattoo artists of tomorrow in our Academy for Tattoo Arts. Please email us to kontakt@taetowier-ausbildung.de.

20. BECOMING A GUEST ARTIST

We are always interested in new and talented guest artists. We have a separate email address for this, which you can use to contact us. Send us all the necessary information like your Instagram name as well as the period in which you would like to work for us to info@pardonparis.com.
