Given that you have to work around work (etc.) you’re wondering how much time to set aside. Below is a practical breakdown of everything you need to know for how to schedule a tattoo appointment in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

What to Consider When Deciding on How Long to Schedule a Tattoo Appointment for in Toronto

Have Design Details Ready

Your tattoo artist (here’s how to pick one) will be the one to determine how long your appointment will be for. This is determined by the design and size of tattoo. The closer you are to deciding on what you want, the closer you are to knowing how long this appointment will be for. You can use this online booking form to upload photos/images of examples of the work you want done (although not required) along with a preferred date and time for the appointment. You will get a response from the tattooist/studio coinfirming day/time and number of expected hours.

Pick a Tattoo Shop That’s Convenient to Get To

Factor travel time to/from your home when scheduling your appointment as this certainly impacts your plans. In addition to picking a parlor based upon reputation, consider convenience. One of the reasons that locals and visitors like choose Adrenaline Toronto is the fact that we’re conveniently located in the heart of the city near Eaton Centre. That means our shop is accessible via all major forms of public transportation.

Come to Your Appointment Prepared

To ensure that your appointment goes as smoothly as possible as far as timing is concerned, be sure to be prepared. The more prepared you are, the more comfortable you will be, the less breaks you may need to take during the session, and the quicker your tattooist can get started. Collectively this makes the process run more efficiently. Here’s how to prepare and stay on schedule

  • Get a good sleep the night before your appointment
  • Stay hydrated
  • Shave the required area the evening before (as applicable)
  • Shower and moisturize your skin in the AM of your appointment day
  • Eat (and bring snacks to your session)
  • Wear comfortable loose-fitting clothing
  • Follow any additional instructions provided by your tattooist during your initial consultation

That’s it! You’re all set to schedule your tattoo appointment.
