How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?
You must be at least 21 years old and you may be asked for valid ID to prove it. Please do not send a request unless you are 21 as that is the limit that Marlène Le Cidre has set for the minimum age.
What are the waiting times?
It takes between 1 to 2 months to get a private appointment, and 4 to 8 months for the tattoo to be done.
How much does a tattoo cost?
The minimum price with Marlène Le Cidre is 200€. Anything above that will depend on the size, details of the design (such as the fineness of the lines or dotwork), the location on the body and the duration of the creating process as well as the tattoo session.
Does it hurt?
Everyone experiences getting a tattoo differently. The pain is usually bearable but it can depend on the type of tattoo, the session duration, the client’s skin and tolerance to pain.
During the session, the brain releases endorphins to reduce the pain and make it more bearable.
What doesn’t Marlène Le Cidre do?
She does not tattoo the face, buttocks, pubis/sex, sides of feet, fingers. Marlène Le Cidre does not cover old tattoos, nor does rework another tattooist’s tattoos. And she doesn’t tattoo on a scar. She no longer carries out projects larger than the A4 format (sheet), nor sleeves, machetes or any other large projects.
Can I be accompanied?
No, you should come alone for the private meeting to discuss the tattoo and during the tattoo session.
How long does the healing process take for a tattoo?
It takes two weeks to heal on the surface, but it takes several months for the skin to regenerate completely.
How can I take care of my new tattoo?
Each tattoo artist has his or her own recommended healing or maintenance methods. Marlène Le Cidre will give you a flyer at the end of your session.
Do I have to make a deposit if I decide to book an appointment?
Yes, a minimum of 30% of the tattoo price will be required to book an appointment. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable and will be applied to the final price of your tattoo.
Is there anything I need to do before my tattoo session?
Marlène Le Cidre recommends that you eat well and stay hydrated before your session. It is best not to party the night before, or consume alcohol or illegal substances. Blood dilutes pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo and the healing process.
