How do I get tattooed by Wayne?

To start the process you must first go to Wayne's Email (w.lessard43@gmail), and submit your idea. Please be very thorough when describing your ideas, body placement, size and as much reference as you have. Wayne makes all of his own appointments and you will be directly contacted by him.

What happens next?

Wayne will then review the requests that he receives and determine based on your email which projects he is interested in taking on. Due to the overwhelming amount of requests that Wayne receives, there is no way for him to respond to every request nor to take on every project that is presented to him. In order to continue the growth and evolution of his art, he is looking for projects that spark immediate interest and inspiration.

There are several metals commonly used for body jewelry that are considered safe and body-friendly.

While gold is one of the most popular jewelry materials, it’s not really suitable for initial piercings and any gold jewelry used has to be made of nickel-free gold in order to be safe and Hypoallergenic. 14 kt Yellow Gold - is commonly made of the following materials: 58% pure gold, 25% pure silver, and 17% pure copper. Gold can be alloyed with other metals, too. Be aware that white gold commonly contains nickel (added for both color and strength). We do not recommend nor will not pierce with any gold it is too soft of a material.

What about other materials? The most popular piercing jewelries include Surgical Steel and Titanium. Both are available and recommended at Bodytech for initial pier...

To Tip or not to Tip that is the question.

 

If you go to a restaurant, you will more than likely tip your waiter or waitress for good service. You'll tip a bartender, a cab driver, maybe even a delivery person. Have you ever thought, though, of tipping your tattoo artist or piercer? Do they expect a tip? If you do tip, what should it be or how much?
Gratuity for a tattoo or piercing can't really be determined by the percentage rating most use for tipping a restaurant server.
Even ten percent of a $200.00 tattoo would be a very substantial amount just to give as a tip. A tip, instead of a percentage, should be based on (1) how much you can afford and (2) how much you feel it is worth. A $5.00 tip would certainly be accepted more graciously than nothing at all.

Tattooing Minors

The State of Florida requires that all minors be at least 16 years of age to be tattooed.

Any one under the age of 18 who wants a tattoo done in the State of Florida / BODYTECH will need to fill out a consent form and have it notarized. Once the form is notarized, the minor and the parent or legal guardian signing for the minor will need to come to the shop. The following are documents you will need in addition to the notarized consent form.

In addition to the consent form we will need an ID from the minor and the parent/guardian.

ID – Under Florida State law NO minor can get tattooed without a State issued ID or a Federal issued ID (Passport, Drivers/Restricted license, Military ID or State ID Card).

Parents whose last name is NOT the same as the minor child will need the chil...
