​​​How old do I have to be to get tattooed?

Bully Ink will only tattoo clients 18 and older with a state issued photo I.D.


Are tattoos safe?
The tattoo procedure is much like a medical procedure, it involves close contact of blood or bodily fluid. In which case there are always risks of blood borne pathogens that can be transmitted through contaminated equipment. Our team has undergone blood borne pathogens certification training through an OSHA compliant course to properly limit risks and prevent exposure. 
We use ONLY pre-packaged, pre-sterilized, single use needles and single use tubes. 
New needles, tattoo tubes and new ink caps are used during every tattoo procedure and are properly disposed of immediately after never ever recycled or reused. Tattoo stations are disinfected after each client with EPA registered (OSHA compliant) liquid sterilization method.Even with all of the precautionary measures taken, you are still at risk for infection please make sure to follow proper
Tattoo Aftercare Instructions.

What is a tattoo touch up?

Bully Ink artists take pride in their work, which is why we offer a complimentary tattoo touch-up on all of our tattoos. All tattoos do not necessarily need a touch-up, but each persons body heals differently.  A touch up allows the artist to review and address any minor imperfections which may have occurred during the healing process.​ After your tattoo has completely healed we welcome you to stop in or simply contact the Bully Ink studio to so that your artist can review tattoo and assist you in scheduling  your complimentary tattoo touch-up appointment if recommended.
