Why Sin City Tattoos?
What makes Sin City Tattoo one of the best Melbourne tattoo shops? Where shall we begin?
Sin City Tattoo went on a mission: to find the best tattoo artist in Melbourne, several times over. We have sought out talented, professional, experienced artists to join our team. Each of our tattoo artists are professionally trained in the art of tattooing. Many of our artists also have a background in the fine arts, drawing, painting and an array of other artforms.
Tattooing isn't just a matter of following the lines and colouring in the blanks. Tattooing is truly an art form and it requires a great deal of expertise, artistic skill and talent. Sure, some tattoo designs are fairly simple, but others are extremely complex and a high degree of artistic talent is required in order to provide the client with the result that they're seeking.
Each one of our artists specialises in a specific style of tattooing and artwork. So feel free to view work samples from each one of our artists so you can determine which artist's style best suits your preferences.
Our tattoo artists are also accomplished at drawing. Sin City Tattoo offers tattoo design services starting around $50. So we can turn your tattoo design idea into a reality! In short, we're not just good with a tattoo gun; we're good with a pencil as well!
In addition, our artists are always willing to provide clients with recommendations that can improve the final result. If you would like your tattoo design inked precisely as pictured, it's important to indicate this to our staff. Otherwise, we may recommend revisions that will provide you with the highest quality and most aesthetically-pleasing design possible.
That's what makes our staff among the best tattoo artists in Melbourne, Victoria.
Sterile, High-End Equipment
Sin City Tattoo takes pride in its status as one of the top Melbourne tattoo parlours.
As such, we take cleanliness extremely seriously.
Our tattoo artists use only sterile, one-time use equipment including:
- ink wells (also known as ink cups);
- and one-time use tattooing needles.
Our tattoo artists also wear gloves and masks during the tattooing process to prevent any sort of contamination. And they are discarded after each and every use.
Excess pigments (also called “ink”) is also discarded.
We also utilise only the best in terms of sterilisation equipment such as autoclaves and disinfectant solution. Again, it's a vital step to protect our clients as we maintain our position as one of the best Melbourne tattoo parlours.
Sin City Tattoo doesn't just employ the best tattoo artists in Melbourne; we also utilise high-quality inks. Low-quality inks can degrade fairly quickly. This can result in fading, and colour changes.
In addition, to keep your tattoo colours looking vibrant, it's important to take care of it properly during the healing process and be sure to avoid sun exposure. Always apply sunscreen to your tattoos to prevent fading and discolouration.
In fact, there are several steps you can take to ensure your tattoo colours stay vibrant!!
- Avoid scabbing during the healing process.
This can pull the ink out of your tattoo, causing patchy
discolouration that often requires a touch-up tattooing.
- Don't itch your tattoo during the healing process! This can cause scarring
and it can damage the overall appearance of your tattoo and its colours.
- Keep a thin coat of ointment over your tattoo during the healing process.
This will prevent scabbing, which can pull the colour out of your tattoo.
- Keep your skin well-moisturised after healing is complete.
This will help keep the colours vibrant.
- And, as mentioned above, avoid sun exposure as the UV light will
cause your tattoo colours to fade or change.
If you have any questions about caring for your tattoo, feel free to consult a member of the Sin City Tattoo team! We're always happy to provide tips and advice about tattoo care and maintenance.
