  • For a large tattoo you’d need to schedule an appointment. The first step in doing that is filling out a tattoo request form.




What is a tattoo design appointment?


A design appointment is an hour long session where you will sit with our manager designing your beautiful tattoo piece. He takes a photo of the part of your body you want to tattoo and photoshops the picture over your skin making it seem you’re already tattooed in the photo! Once the design is exactly how you wanted it to be, he’ll discuss prices and appointment dates with you for the artist that is best suited to tattoo your piece.




How do I take care of my tattoo?


Taking care of your tattoo is very important as it determines the final look of your tattoo. For detailed information click on our after-care page.




How old do I need to be to get my tattoo?


In the state of Florida you have to be at least 18, or if you’re 16 or 17 you must be accompanied by your Mother, Father or legal guardian. Anybody under the age of 16 can not be tattooed even with a guardian's permission.




How do I prepare for my tattoo design appointment?


We recommend coming into your tattoo design appointment with several ideas and images of what you’d want for your tattoo. We also recommend coming in with an open mind about placement and design. We say this because sometimes the design or placement won’t work out due to numerous factors.




Do you charge for a consultation/Tattoo Design appointment?

Piercings

Why get pierced by Fame Tattoos?


Fame Tattoos offers clean, sterile, one-time-use equipment. This ensures your piercing comes out perfect. We also use Surgical steel jewelry which is included with the cost of your piercing.




Why do you use surgical steel jewelry?


We use surgical steel jewelry because it is hypoallergenic. Surgical steel is ideal for new piercings. Surgical steel jewelry won’t oxidize, tarnish or react with skin. Other metals such as silver contain large amounts of nickel which can easily irritate the skin.




Do we sell jewelry?


At Fame Tattoos we do sell jewelry for your piercings. All our jewelry is sterilized and made of surgical steel.




How long after getting the piercing am I able to put in my own jewelry?


We recommend waiting two months before switching the jewelry out. This ensures proper healing time for your piercing.




Do I need an appointment?


For piercings you do not need an appointment. We do walk-ins on a first come, first serve basis.





Micro-pigmentation

What is micropigmentation?


Micropigmentation is a non-invasive treatment using micro tattoo needles to add pigment onto the scalp. The results of this procedure create the appearance of tiny hair follicles. Making it look like you have a buzz cut.




How many sessions does it take?


On average it takes 2 sessions for the best results.




How long do the results last?


Results vary by how well you take care of your scalp after the treatment. The results can last a lifetime with proper care.




What is the proper Micropigmentation aftercare?


After receiving the treatment it is recommended to get an aftercare kit to gently wash the area, it is also recommended to use moisturizer to hydrate the skin to ensure it stays vibrant. Once the scalp is fully healed we recommend using spf 50 or higher sunscreen to protect it from the sun.




Do you charge for a consultation?


No, we offer free consultations for anyone looking to see if scalp micropigmentation can help their hair loss.




How long after the hair micropigmentation procedure can I sweat?


You can start to sweat after 5 days of getting your scalp treated.





Microblading/Permanent Make up

What is Microblading?


This eyebrow enhancement technique, which is sometimes called eyebrow embroidery or 3D brows, is completed with the manual method of tattooing. Using a very fine blade, our Permanent Makeup Tattoo Artists will add pigmentation into the skin. Since the color is deposited so close to the skin’s surface, it makes the strokes appear fine, crisp and natural looking.




How long do the results of the procedure last?


Microblading results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years.




Can I workout after getting micropigmentation?


We recommend not working out until 7 days after the procedure as the salt in sweat can fade the end result.




What is permanent makeup?


Permanent makeup is the process of cosmetic tattooing eyebrows, lip, or eyeliner.




How long do permanent make-up results last?


Permanent makeup results last a lifetime but just like with any tattoo the color will start to fade over time. We recommend getting touch ups and periodic maintenance.





Removal

How does Tattoo Vanish® Work?


We apply a local anesthetic before and during the procedure, using the tattoo machine in a similar manner as when the tattoo was received. Once the area has been exposed, we apply the Ink Eraser for a few minutes. The area is then wiped clean and bandaged. You will be furnished with written After Care Instructions to ensure the treatment’s effectiveness and your full recovery.




How Quick are results?


  • There are a variety of tattooing methods used by tattoo artists all over the world. The type of ink used and other factors will determine how long it takes to see results. Because of this, Tattoo Vanish offers FREE consultations.
  • In general Tattoo Vanish could reduce treatments from 50 to 75 percent compared to other methods, including LASER. There may be some lightening of the ink after just one treatment.




Is the procedure painful?


Everyone’s tolerance for pain varies, but with Tattoo Vanish, we will consider your safety and your comfort with every procedure. That is why we will use a topical anesthetic before and during treatment, so you can experience little to no discomfort.




How many treatments are needed?


There are a number of factors that will dictate this, including your health, the depth of the ink, which type of ink was used and the size of the tattoo. Smaller tattoos may require only one to three treatments. Tattoo Vanish will lighten or remove any color, unlike LASER, which can only remove certain colors successfully.




Are appointments necessary?


Yes, but the consultation is FREE. Appointments are necessary so that the technician can thoroughly explain the process and gather necessary client history. Appointments also help us give a more accurate procedure quote. The procedure may be performed the same day as the consultation if all expectations have been met.
