Tattoos have become increasingly popular as a means of self-expression and body modification. A tattoo is essentially a drawing on the human body, created by using specialized equipment known as a tattoo machine and tattoo inks. It involves the application of these inks under the skin with a disposable sterile needle, typically at a depth of 0.5-2mm, resulting in a permanent design.

At Cartel Tattoo, we prioritize the highest standards of safety and quality. Our studio exclusively uses clinically approved materials and the leading brands in tattoo equipment. Adhering to strict sanitary standards, we ensure that our procedures are carried out with utmost care. We understand the significance of maintaining sterility and the expertise of our tattoo masters.

Tattoos come in various styles and types, including colored and monochrome designs, with different techniques employed to apply them on the skin. Some popular tattoo styles include graphics, realism, biomechanics, Japanese style, old (new) school, (neo) traditional, chicano, dotwork, blackwork, watercolor technique, trash polka, polynesian, and tribal. At our studio, we offer the ability to create tattoos of any kind and complexity, tailored to individual preferences.

The meaning behind a tattoo is a personal choice. For many, it represents a significant symbol or holds a deeper significance, while for others, it may simply be an aesthetically pleasing design. We respect the individuality of each client and are here to bring their artistic visions to life.

Preparing for a tattoo session is crucial to ensure a comfortable and successful experience. We provide three essential tips to help our clients prepare adequately: getting a good night’s sleep, avoiding alcohol consumption, and having a nutritious meal before the session. Tattooing can be a stressful process for the body, and following these recommendations will contribute to a smoother and more enjoyable experience.

Tattoo prices in Odesa can vary depending on several factors, including the size and complexity of the design, the location on the body, the experience of the tattoo artist, and the quality of materials used. It’s important to recognize that high-quality tattoos often come at a higher price, as craftsmanship and expertise are invaluable. Conversely, low prices should not be seen as indicative of superior workmanship.

The duration of a tattoo session is influenced by the size and complexity of the design. Additionally, factors such as individual skin type, pain threshold, and the need for breaks (such as for snacks, coffee, or cigarettes) can affect the overall time required for completion.

Proper aftercare is crucial for the healing process of a tattoo. While we provide detailed instructions on tattoo aftercare in our dedicated article “,” we want to emphasize its importance here as well. Tattoo inks penetrate the skin through microtraumas created by the tattoo machine. As a result, a fresh tattoo is essentially an open wound. It is essential to pay close attention to your body and diligently follow our recommendations until your tattoo is fully healed. At Cartel Tattoo Studio, we provide a comprehensive list of instructions to guide you in caring for your tattoo. We strongly urge you to be responsible and adhere to these guidelines for optimal healing.

Furthermore, we highly recommend protecting your tattoo from sunlight, whether it is a fresh or an existing one. You can achieve this by covering it with clothing or using a protective cream with a minimum SPF of 35. By doing so, you can help preserve the vibrancy and longevity of your tattoo.

At Cartel Tattoo, we are committed to providing a safe and professional environment for our clients. Our talented tattoo artists are skilled in various styles, ensuring that we can bring your artistic vision to life. Trust us to deliver high-quality tattoos that reflect your individuality and personal style.
