All working tattooists at the INK&CUTZ TATTOO CONVENTION are licensed and trained professionals and will not deviate from that policy.

Are the artists working safely and hygienically?

Yes, everyone tattooing at the INK&CUTZ TATTOO CONVENTION is working directly under Dutch Health Commission’s strict regulations. In addition to these being some of the strictest rules in the country, there are on-site health officials from Dutch Health Commission’s overseeing the compliance of each and every licensed artist. Single-use needles and disposable barrier products are mandatory and ensure a sterile working environment. A spore-tested, hospital-grade autoclave is available for use by artists on the premises and bandages, disposable gloves, and aftercare instructions are made available to artists and collectors by the convention organizers and the Dutch Health Commission’s.

Can I drink alcohol before I get tattooed?

NO. Alcohol is a blood-thinner, will make your tattoo bleed excessively, and complicate the process of receiving and healing your piece. Plan on eating a good meal prior to getting tattooed and leave the drinking to people not getting any work done.

Prices vary from artist to artist and are completely at their discretion. Small tattoos may range from 50,- to 100,- with average hourly rates ranging from 100,- to 250,-. Feel free to tip the artist for the outstanding job.
