Susy Henna


Tattoo and Piercings
Tattooing is now one of my great loves and passions and as the years continue, I have forever developed my skills and I will never stop


Let's meet sandy. He grew up with an interest in art from a young age , knowing that he wanted to be a tattoo artist before getting his first tattoo. This made the passion to become an artist stronger and he had a keen interest in the art of tattooing.

To master any art one has to practice a lot and the same goes for tattooing. For him tattoos are the impression of the soul. And doing a tattoo on someone is a big responsibility because it gives that person a different identity. So it should be precise and definite.

with over 8 years of practical experience in the area of tattooing, people of all ages and races have trusted his designing skills and technical expertise in coming up with the most creative and wonderful tattoos to adorn their body with. With his particular techniques he can make any tattoo on your body. Regardless of what you want in black / grey or color tattoo! He is master of all styles of tattooing , from freehand work to portraits , new tattoos to cover ups and anything in between. He loves to laugh and joke while tattooing , He believes it makes you as the client relax and you can really enjoy the experience of getting tattooed by him.

If you are interested in getting tattooed by him , feel free to email him to discuss your ideas.



Q. Is it safe to get a tattoo or piercing ?
Yes , completely safe If you go to a professional tattoo shop where the proper tattoo equipment is used. Decades ago there was concern about getting hepatitis C from tattoos, but this is something all professionals are very conscious of nowadays. If new needles are used for each and every customer , there is no chance of contracting a blood-borne disease. You can be assured that Sandy Tattoo Studio requires each artist to hold client safety as the first and foremost priority.
Q. Does it hurt ?
Yes it hurts. But definitely not as much as you think , there are lots of people walking around with tattoos and piercings so it's not unbearable. Actually, getting a tattoo is not very painful nowadays because modern tattoo equipment is such that the needles go in and out of your skin very quickly. You'll be completely able to carry on a normal conversation while getting your tattoo.Getting tattooed or pierced is a very personal experience. Whether it hurts or not depends mostly on the individual's pain threshold and the location on the body. The general consensus is that it feels like a "hot scratch" on the skin. Feel free to discuss this with your artist , they will be happy to advise you ! The end result always outweighs any pain felt during the process , so stay positive and enjoy your new ink !
Q. What kinds of tattoo designs can I choose from ?
When it comes to today's tattoo designs, the choices are almost endless ! Your first step is to browse some web sites - just do a Google search for "free tattoo designs". With all the social sharing sites like Facebook and many specialty tattoo blogs that focus on designs in desired niche , the inter-web is one of the best resources out there searching for inspiration. Chances are, you'll be overwhelmed by the sheer variety - there's tribal tattoos , Gothic tattoos , traditional tattoos , biker tattoos , Japanese tattoos , Chinese tattoos , the possibilities are endless. Think about what inspired you to want a tattoo in the first place. Chances are, you saw a tattoo you liked on someone else - what style was it ? What did you like about it ?
Q. Where can I have a tattoo placed ?
Where to place a tattoo is , and always should be , your own decision. Don't be influenced by "it'll hurt less there" or "it'll be cooler here", get the tattoo where YOU want it !!!! General advice on placement is that you should consider what kind of clothes you wear , work and social , whether you would like it to show all the time or only when you want to show it off.
Q. What does the term "single-use" needles mean ?
That means we NEVER EVER re-use or re-sterilize a needle. When you are tattooed , the needle we use will be brand new and sterile. After your tattoo , that needle will be discarded. Everything (ie: pigments, ink caps, razors, etc.) are all discarded after each tattoo.
Q. What about inks and other materials ?
All ointments , pigments, gloves , ink cups , razors , etc. used to apply your tattoo are discarded after use. Nothing is reused , this eliminates any possibility of contamination of materials.
Q. How do I know if proper standards are being followed ?
First , look around. Is the studio clean and professional looking ? Appearances can tell you a lot. Then , ask questions. A professional studio takes pride in its safe tattooing procedures and won't mind answering your concerns.
Q. Anyone who is artistic can tattoo ?
Don't bet your skin on it!!!!
The ability to draw neat designs does not make a tattooist. Without the proper equipment , mechanical skill and technical knowledge , that pretty paper design can turn into anything from mush to scar tissue in a couple of months. Every tattooist has artistic talent. Unfortunately , this is false.
Q. Can I bring my own picture or drawing for my tattoo ?
Yes. This tattoo will be on you permanently so we want to be sure you are totally happy. Bring anything you think might help to capture exactly what you're looking for your tattoo to reflect. We also have plenty of reference books available for ideas. No matter whether you know exactly what you want or don't have a clue , we will always work with you to design a custom piece of art that you will love.
Q. How do I pick a design ?
In our studio we have thousands of designs to look at or choose from. You can also bring in a sketch or drawing. If you can't find something that reflects your personal taste one of our artists would be more than happy to draw the tattoo of your dreams.
Q. How much will it cost ?
Tattoo prices vary according to the size and tattoo designs. Of course, a larger and more complex design will cost more than a smaller, simpler one - that stands to reason. Prices vary though, so the best thing to do is to ask. Bring your design - or just describe it - and most tattoo shops will be able to quote you a price right then and there. Remember though , if another studio is willing do your tattoo super cheap BEWARE !!!! Sometimes you get what you pay for and this is going to be on you forever. If you do go for the super cheap shop see question on fixing a bad tattoo!
Q. I've heard that tattoos don't look so good once you start to age. Is that true? Are there any places where you should avoid getting a tattoo ?
It's true that skin and flesh may sag in some places as you age, but that doesn't necessarily mean your tattoo will look bad. Just use your common sense. You know roughly where skin tends to sag as you get older , so don't get a large tattoo in those areas. A small one is usually okay , though , and there are several places where you can get a tattoo that won't change substantially over the years - such as your ankle , shoulder or upper arm. These are the most popular tattoo locations at any rate. Keep in mind that any tattoo may fade over time though , and you may need to get it re-inked. Colors tend to fade faster than black.
Q. I have a tattoo that's really bad , can it be fixed ?
Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos-even really bad ones so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we don't think it can be successfully covered we will let you know and work with you on what options you do have so you will ultimately be happy. We never do a tattoo just to make a buck. This is a really good group of guys who take tremendous pride in their work and art. Be assured that the artwork on your body and how you feel about it is a reflection on them - meaning your satisfaction is VERY important !
Q. Can I get my old tattoo covered ?
Not every tattoo can be covered , however it is possible in many cases. Some of the major deciding factors are the level of fading of the existing work , and the state of the skin in the cover-up area (such as the presence of scar tissue from previous tattoo work). Your artist will be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.
Q. I have a medical problem. Can I still get pierced ?
People with medical problems are highly advised to discuss the issue with your personal physician and get a doctor's note that it is OK to perform the piercing. We reserve the right to refuse a piercing service to someone with a medical problem that would risk the customer's health.
Q. When should I not get a tattoo ?
You shouldn't get a tattoo if you're drunk or high (and most tattoo shops have a policy in place about this ; they'll refuse to tattoo anyone who appears to be drunk). The other reason for not getting a tattoo is if you're not sure. Wait until you do feel sure or just don't get one. This is nota good thing to feel ambiguous about. There are no specific medical considerations , but use your common sense. If you're sick, wait till you get better.
Q. Will having a tattoo make it harder for me to get a good job ?
If you're worried , why not get the tattoo in a place where office clothes will cover it ? For men at any rate , that still leaves a lot of choices. Even if you can't keep it covered though , in this day and age it probably won't matter. Tattoos are a lot more socially acceptable than they ever before and in most workplaces you are judged on the basis of your ability. There are exceptions , of course ; there are tattoos that are so prominent and controversial in terms of their appearance or content that they may cause problems for you , just as there are workplaces which are exceptionally conservative. You need to make sure that all aspects of your appearance fit your objectives , and that includes tattoos. But having a tattoo or two certainly won't preclude you from being gainfully employed - not in this day and age !
Q. Are your tattoo artists certified ?
Yes , all of our tattoo artists are certified.
Q. Can I get HIV or AIDS by tattooing ?
HIV is a very delicate virus and does not last long outside of the body. Nor is it spread through casual contact. Generally , the virus is transmitted when sufficient quantities of blood are introduced into the body of another. The structure of a tattoo needle does not lend itself to HIV transmission. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) there has never been a case of HIV transmission from tattooing.
Q. I've heard that getting tattoos can be addictive. Is that true ?
It isn't true in the sense of a real addiction , but it is a fact that people who already have one tattoo are more likely to get another one or so. It is possible to get "hooked" on the excitement of getting a tattoo , just as some people get "hooked" on shopping , but that's not a real addiction. Most people who end up with multiple tattoos do so simply because they like them.

FIRST AID: How to Take Care.


Leave the bandage on for 1-2 hours then wash your tattoo with warm water and a mild soap. Do not bandage your tattoo again unless you were instructed to do so. Rub lightly with a bare hand as you wash off any blood, ointment and excess ink.

DO NOT use a washcloth as you may damage the skin. Once you're finished washing the tattoo, gently pat it dry with a clean, soft towel and then let it get some air for 10 minutes to ensure it is completely dry. Wash your tattoo at least 2x a day (morning and night), as well as anytime that you may have sweat excessively or been in a dirty environment (gym, work, etc.).

Apply a thin layer of Bepanthen First Aid to your new tattoo. Do this 1-2 times a day for the next 3 days. Apply only a small amount, making a thin layer on your tattoo. Dab any excess ointment off with a clean paper towel. DO NOT put too much on! This may result in a heavy scab, slower healing time and will cause excess ink to be pushed out of your tattoo giving it a faded look.

After 3 days use a moisturizing skin lotion on your tattoo (Vaseline Intensive Care or Cocoa Butter). Be careful not to remove any scabs as you rub the lotion in. Ensure your lotion is fragrance free and use it about 2-4x a day. Your tattoo will peel/scab off in 5-14 days.

DO NOT pick any of the scabs as you may cause scarring or pull off some colour from your tattoo. Your tattoo will also become itchy during the healing process. Gently pat your tattoo and DO NOT scratch! If you get any ingrown hairs DO NOT pick them.

While your tattoo is healing avoid swimming (salt water/chlorine), baths, tanning beds, fake tanning lotions, etc. New skin forms over your tattoo and you do not want to damage it as it grows over.

Your tattoo should heal up like a scrape (gravel rash) type injury. The way your tattoo looks after it heals depends a lot on the healing process and what you do over the few weeks after your tattoo was applied.Take care of it and it will last a lifetime

Cleaning: How to ?

This is the "standard" method and most common. We suggest this method for those with smaller tattoos, and those that have had good results with it in the past. Your new tattoo has been bandaged, and it should be removed after at least four hours. It is very important that your new tattoo be protected from the sun and dirty environments, as it is a rather large open wound at this time. You should wait to remove the bandage until you can properly clean it with mild soap and warm water. Rinse it well, and pat it dry, then allow it to air-dry before applying ointment.

You should apply ointment, H2Ocean, regularly throughout the day, keeping the tattoo slightly moist, but NOT smothered. Use just enough ointment to make the tattoo slightly shiny, and blot off any excess. For the first day or two, your tattoo will require more cleaning, as it will lose fluid at first--this is normal. You want to make sure that moisture doesn't get trapped under the ointment (hence the air-drying), and that the tattoo doesn't stay submerged in water either. We recommend washing your tattoo a couple times throughout the day, using only mild soap, and rinsing and drying well. Frequency of cleaning depends on your lifestyle--use your best judgment, but don't overdo it.

You should only apply ointment for as many days as it takes for your tattoo to peel, this process will take anywhere from three days to 1 week, depending on your body and the area of skin. It will begin to flake like sunburn--just let this happen on its own, and don't pick at it. When the tattoo has fully entered the peeling phase, you need not, and should not, apply any more ointment. The area will become dry and itchy, and a good hand lotion should help with this.

Here's what you should look out for with this method. Should any "bubbling" of your tattoo occur, you should consider method 2. This bubbling is caused from moisture (usually too much ointment!) getting trapped in your tattoo, and could lead to scabbing. If scabs develop, they can remove the color beneath them. It is very important that they are allowed to dry out completely, and not at any time get water-logged. The scab will eventually fall off on its own, and your tattoo should be fine if you keep the scabs dry. Also, some people develop a small allergic reaction to Bacitracin, which shows up as a red rash around the tattoo, and disappears once the ointment is no longer used. A small percentage of people may develop a more serious reaction, and may require medical attention, so we suggest the use of A&D, unless you've not had problems with Bacitracin in the past.

Q. How to take care of your tattoo?
  • Remove the bandage 24 hours after you get a tattoo. Use an antibiotic ointment on the tattooed skin while it heals.
  • Keep the inked skin clean. Gently wash it with plain soap and water and pat dry the area.
  • Apply a mild moisturizer to the the tattooed skin many times during the day.
  • Keep the tattooed area away from the sun for a few weeks at the least.
  • Don't wear anything that will stick to the tattoo
  • Give up to 2 weeks for healing. Do not pick at scabs , it will only increase the risk of infection and can also damage the design and cause scarring.
  • When it comes to non-disposable equipment , ensure that the tattoo artist uses a sterilization device to sterilize them after each customer.
  • Make sure that draw / door handles , tables and sinks are all cleaned with a disinfectant


  • ALLERGIC REACTION :Tattoo dye - the red colour dye in particular - can cause skin allergies such as itchy rashes at the tattoo location. This can even occur many years after you get a tattoo.
  • BACTERIAL INFECTIONS : Tattoo involves using needles to puncture skin, and has the potential to cause local bacterial infections. This is typically characterised by redness, inflammation, pain and pus-like discharge.
  • OTHER SKIN COMPLICATIONS :Sometimes, one might develop bumps called granuloma (a small area of inflammation caused by tissue injury). Tattooing can also lead to an overgrowth of scar tissue.
  • BLOOD-BORNE DISEASES: If the equipment used for tattooing is contaminated with infected blood, there are chances of you contracting varied kinds of blood-borne diseases, many of which are fatal. You could be at risk of contracting anything from Hepatitis B , Hepatitis C to HIV.


  • First ask yourself whether you really want to invest in a permanent body art.
  • Choose the tattoo Artist carefully.
  • Don't get a tattoo if you're under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Go to a reputed tattooing studio that has properly trained tattoo professionals.
  • Ensure that the tattoo artist washes his / her hands and wears a fresh pair of protective gloves for each procedure.
  • Make sure the artist removes the needles and tubes he/she will use for your tattoo from sealed packages. Ensure the pigments and containers are also fresh
  • When it comes to non-disposable equipment , ensure that the tattoo artist uses a sterilization device to sterilize them after each customer.
  • Make sure that draw / door handles , tables and sinks are all cleaned with a disinfectant
