The eternal question. All our artists either charge by the hour or by design. Flash Designs vary too. The final price will be dependent on the detail of your design and the size. The best way to find out what your desired tattoo will cost is to go to our Tattoo Booking Form and we’ll forward you a quote from there. Our minimum fee is $150.
Fill our our Tattoo Booking Form and provide a description of your design, reference photos, size and placement on your body. This information not only enables us to process your request quicker, it shows us that you’re serious!
Cash and you can tap on too, although please be aware that you will also pay the credit/ debit card charge. ATMs are in walking distance. We also offer Afterpay!
You must be 18 years of age. Valid photo ID must be presented on the day and will be recorded on your signed consent form. This is a strict rule at Roxxi’s Poolroom and we make no exceptions.
Food and water! We recommend that you have a snack and stay hydrated. Alcohol may increase bleeding and make you restless and twitchy (and maybe even annoying), so lay off the booze on the day of your appointment. Shaving the area you’ve chosen for your tattoo ‘hair-free’ before the appointment is greatly appreciated. You can also use a body scrub to ensure your skin is totally smooth. We suggest the Sass + Co. Volcanic Sea Salt scrub, available online here and in the studio.
Another eternal question! Yes, a little, but you’re in in safe hands and we’ll make your experience as comfortable as possible. You may also discuss the use of numbing cream.
It takes up to two weeks for a fresh tattoo to completely ‘heal’. For your skin to completely recover can take serval months.
Please refer to our TATTOO AFTERCARE page and we’ll provide you with instructions once you have been inked. Just remember: if your tattoo becomes itchy – don’t itch it! This is a normal part of the healing process.
To ensure to keep a high standard of hygiene, we prefer that you come to your appointment alone. This also allows enough space for our tattooers to work, too.
We recommend you wait 3-4 days before you start exercising. Avoid the ocean for two weeks and chlorinated water for three weeks.
Yes! In fact, all the products used and sold in Roxxi’s Poolroom are vegan. Tattoo before and aftercare and Sass + Co. Body skincare are all vegan friendly.
Yes! Please be aware that finger and hand tattoos may not heal well, and we cannot guarantee that you will get the desired result with tattoos on the fingers because the ink tends to fade and drop out after 6-12 months. To counteract that, we recommend getting touch-ups.
Tattoos can be applied to scars that are completely healed and are not red. It’s important we get to see the scar before we draw up a quote, so please email us photos beforehand.
Yes, Please use our Tattoo Booking Form or come into the shop to discuss further.
Yes, we tattoo fine lines, micro and tiny tattoos. Whatever you like to call them. Please be aware that our minimum fee is $150 although you may like to get a few tiny tattoos together in one appointment? Tiny tattoos are fragile when they’re healing so It’s important not to pick off any scabbing as this could cause serious damage to fine lines. These lines are delicate as a single needle has been used with way less ink than a traditional tattoo. Fine lines are very delicate so they won’t last like they first appear forever. There is generally less black pigment used with a tiny tattoo so that it doesn’t bleed out as much and you get those fine delicate lines for as long as possible. This also means that your body will start to remove it faster. Your choice.
If you cancel with more than 48 hours notice your deposit will roll over to your next appointment. Not showing up or arriving later than 15 minutes without notice will forfeit your deposit. Deposits are non-refundable and we require a minimum of 48 hours notice for a cancellation. Show respect!
When it comes to getting inked, it literally means inserting ink into the skin. There are a variety of tools that have been used to tattoo people over the years, but generally these are a needle of some sort - holding ink that then punctures the skin.
Unlike the type of needle used to draw blood from the body, the needles on a tattoo machine aren't hollow. Instead these needles work as a group that carry ink into the tiny spaces between each needle. This is referred to as capillary action. As this group of needles punctures the skin, it deposits the ink right beneath the skin surface to start creating your fresh ink!
To unpack what makes tattoos last we need to look at our skin. Our skin is divided into three layers: the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous layer. The tiny group of tattoo needles, which we tend to refer to as "tattoo needles" pierces straight through the epidermis. That is the outermost layer that we can see and touch daily.
The ink is then able to be deposited into the dermis, which contains hair follicles, sweat glands, and blood vessels. Unlike the cells in the epidermis which continuously shed, the skin cells in the dermis take way longer for the body to replace. This is part of the reason why tattoos stay permanent.
While the body is being tattooed its natural immune system responds by sending messages along with special cells to help heal the wound being made by getting tattooed. Some of these cells' job is to try to remove the ink particles. You will likely notice this the first time you take your cover off your tattoo or watch ink appear in your second skin. This is completely natural but most of the ink particles are way too big for your body to process completely so instead it traps them within the dermis.
Over time these trapped particles will start to deteriorate as the body keeps trying to break them down. This is why tattoos may start to fade or bleed. However, the tattoo will mostly remain visible through the epidermis for a lifetime! Nice!
