Tattoo process

      1. Choose a tattoo!

        • You can choose from our website or in our shop. We can also do any design from the internet or any other picture if you email us or bring it with you. If you bring it in, you do not have to print it off, it is enough if you just copy it on a pendrive, but we do not suggest to bring it on your phone as we can not really see the details of an image on such a small display.
        • If you would like a quote or letters, you can choose from here: tattoo quotes or find a font at and bring that with you.
        • If you would like a photo realistic tattoo (human, animal, etc) please bring a good qualitied - professional photographer highly recommended - high resolution paper or digital photo.
        • If you choose anything else, please bring a good and large enough picture so we can see all the small details too.
      2. Whats worth to pay attention to:

        • What size of tattoo should I make?
          A minta részletességének megfelelő méretben tetováltass. Ha egy nagyon részletes képet szeretnél nagyon kis méretben, az nem fog jól mutatni, illetve nem is lehet elkészíteni. Tetoválóink meg tudják mondani, hogy kivitelezhető-e az általad kívánt méretben. Sokan szeretnének pl. szöveget tetováltatni az ujjukra és nagyon meglepődnek, mikor megmutatjuk nekik, hogy egy ujjra max. 3-4 kis betű fér el.
        • What size of tattoo should I make?
          You have to choose the size of the tattoo depending on the details of the picture. If you'd like a very detailed image in a small size, it will not look good or it can not be tattooed. Our tattoo artists can help you choose the right size. Many people would like sentences on their fingers and they wonder when we tell them it can only be tattooed 3-4 letters on a finger.
        • Which design should I choose?
          We recommend to choose a design in mind of to be easily continued in the future.
        • Is it possible to do white tattoo?
          It is possible but we do not do only white tattoos because after a period of time some parts might be disappear and it does not look good without any other color. We recommend to use white tattoo ink to highlight other colors.
        • Cover up / Repair
          We do cover ups and repair your bad tattoos but we have to see the old tattoo before we can say anything about the possibilities. There are some don'ts and can'ts: we can't fade, we can't make it smaller and there is no skin color which can cover up the whole tattoo. It is necessary that the new tattoo should be bigger and darker than the old one. These are the best colours for cover up: black, gray, blue, purple and a mixture of these colors but it is always depends on the actual tattoo needs to be covered. Therefore we can only give you an offer for your cover up personally, not on the phone and not even in email.
        • What style should I choose?
          It doesn't matter if you like it! But if you would like to extent later it is suggested to choose a similar style because two completely different style does not alwyas look good next to each other.
        • Is there any disappearing tattoo ink?
          Disappearing tattoo doesnt exist. Unfortunately cosmeticians often do this so called "disappearing tattoo" which in fact does not completely disappear but only a part
        • Whats the price of a tattoo?
          The price always depends on the size, complexity, details and if many colors have to be used that can also make it more expensive. According to the misbeliefs a coloured tattoo shouldn't be more expensive than a black and white. A 3D only black design can be much harder to do it than a simple colorful tattoo. There are some parts of the body what harder to tattoo so sometimes the location can also change the final tattoo price.
        • When don't do tattoos?
          If you are pregnant or sick we do not recommend tattooing. If you have skin disease always ask your dermatologist about having tattoo. If you are under 18 years your parent(s)/guardians have to be with you during the tattoo process and we ask both you and your parents to proove identity
        • Is it painful to get tattooed?
          The tattoo is always a little bit painful, but it worth for a cool tattoo. There are some things you can do to minimize tha pain: sleep well the night before, have a delicious breakfast/lunch, drink some sugar drink. Be prepared for your appointment!
        • How long does it take to heal?
          The avarage healing time is about 2 weeks, but it can be a little shorter/longer depending on the size and detailness. During this period you have to follow the tattoo aftercare instructions.
        • Sterilization, cleanliness?
          Westend Tattoo takes serious actions to keep everything clean and sterilized so you can be rest assured of sterilization. We only use disposable needles in our shop
