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.

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.
