I have a bad tattoo.  Can you cover it up/fix it?

Cover-up tattoos are up to the artist digression.  Please set up a free consultation to discuss your options.

 

My fiancé and I want wedding ring tattoos...

Finger tattoos do not hold up well to the test of time.  As for your wedding ring tattoos, it’s a great idea but we are hoping your marriage last longer than your tattoo. Fingers tend to lack the collagen needed to retain the dye.  They are definitely not a great choice for a first tattoo.  It's best to know what you're getting into with this.  The pictures on the web are great moments in time, and as we age, the art can only be as good as the skin.  

Do you tattoo with white ink? 

Yes, we use white ink in combination with other ink colors.  We do not create tattoos solely using white ink.  These tattoos are currently a fad and the art itself does not hold up well over time.  The can also tend to turn brown over time.  (attracts pigmentation like a freckle)

 

Do you sell piercing jewelry?

Crux Art is a tattoo only studio.  We do not offer piercing or body jewelry.  Sorry for any inconvince this may cause you. 

 

Does it hurt?

Yes.
