Frequently asked questions

DO YOU DO COVER UPS OR REWORKS?


Tiggy will take on either of these if she feels it is within her ability. Not all tattoos are suitable to be covered or reworked. Please include a few photos of your existing tattoo in your email enquiry. The photos must be clear daylight photos / not too close up and not too far away - Tiggy needs to see how big it is and where on your body. Please note : Getting laser first isn't always necessary but it will give you a lot more options with what can go over if the original tattoo has been lightened.




I EMAILED BUT HAVEN'T HEARD BACK


Tiggy can sometimes take a week or two to respond due to her extremely busy schedule. Her books may be closed - If this is the case then she will not be responding to new enquiries. Please do not double email - she emails in order of who emailed first, so by emailing again you will be sent to the back of the queue.




DO YOU USE VEGAN INKS?


Yes! All of Tiggy's inks are vegan friendly.




I CAN'T AFFORD THE DEPOSIT RIGHT NOW, SHOULD I STILL EMAIL?


If you are not ready to book in yet, then please wait until you are. Dates cannot be held until a deposit has been placed. Due to the high volume of emails Tiggy gets, it's hard for her to remember what was talked about in the past. So please just email when you are ready, and then it's all in one simple email thread.




DO YOU DO SCAR COVERUPS?


Yes, Tiggy loves to turn bad memories into something new and beautiful. She would need to see what she's working with beforehand - so please feel free to include photos (they're not triggering for her so please go ahead) Tiggy will see what she's working with and then talk through the options with you.




ACCESSIBILITY?


Tiggy works at two shops - Briar Rose Tattoo in London is wheelchair accessible. It's located on the ground floor, without any steps to enter the premises. There is one single step inside the property, to access the toilet and also Tiggy's room but we have a ramp available to make this accessible. Sylvari Tattoo in Gloucestershire unfortunately is not accessible as it is located on the first floor. There is one flight of fairly steep stairs to access this studio - we are very sorry!




HOW FAR AHEAD DOES TIGGY BOOK?


Tiggy is usually booked around 6 months in advance, or more. If it get's to about a year of bookings then she will close her books to catch up. If you email her - you'll receive an auto-response which will notify you of whether she is taking bookings or not for either shop.




DO YOU TATTOO ALL SKIN TONES?


Yes absolutely! Tiggy will always give her best and most honest advice about which colours will work best / or won't work for your skin tone to ensure you have a tattoo you'll love for many years!




WHAT PAYMENTS DOES TIGGY ACCEPT?


Tiggy accepts either cash or bank transfer - all payments must be paid at the shop before you leave so please do make sure you are organised for this. Neither Briar Rose nor Sylvari tattoo have a card machine. Please be aware of this.




CAN I PAY IN ADVANCE?


Aside from the deposit to secure your appointent date, No. - Tiggy prefers for you to pay on the day of before you go home.




DOES TIGGY DO GUEST SPOTS?


Very rarely - Tiggy prefers to work from her home town/s (London and Gloucestershire) as her little family includes two strappingly handsome cats, and dog. Her pets are her world, and she doesn't enjoy leaving them.
