The Holy Fox Tattoos studio in Germany does no longer exist and is officially closed down. I am currently residing in London England.
Time and location of the private studio I m currently working at will be told when making the appointment. Best is to send me an email or call, but please only call during my general active hours. That means please don´t call on sundays, holidays, before 12:00 (12 PM) or after 19:00 (7PM). Thanks a lot for that.
You have to be at least 21 years old to become a wearer of my Horimono or Irezumi. I only produce traditional Japanese Irezumi motives and strictly stick to the given measurements and placements of the designs on the body. I use rotary machines and on request the traditional Japanese Tebori method (handtool). I rarely ever do cover ups or continue unfinished work by other artists. Since I am ‘stuck’ with tradition any special wishes that do not adhere to traditional Japanese Irezumi rules cannot be fulfilled I am afraid. One session is maximum 3 hours or minimum 1 hour. Between sessions should be a 10 day healing break. If its a bigger project one could do 2 days or more in a row in a rotating system. Extremely exhausting though. Please eat something before the session and dont do any alcohol or drugs! Please always reconfirm your appointment with me a day before especially when you come from abroad. And please bring a towel and your own healing creme, like Bepanthen, H2Ocean, or Hustlebutter. How long a Tattoo takes depends on size, design, skin type and pain resistance of the customer. I wish you always safe travels!
How to take care of your tattoo:
This is one possible way of how to take care of your tattoo.- First of all never scratch, pick, or hit on your tattoo. Don’t rub dirt into it neither, or let an animal lick it! I have seen it all believe me!
Sun is very bad during the healing process and bad for tattoos in general, due to its laser like qualities. Do not go to a Sun-bed, Sauna, into the ocean, or into a swimming pool during healing time! No Sports for at least 7 days! Too much sweating is not the best either. Don’t wear too tight clothes or clothes that looses fabric like wool directly on top of the fresh tattoo.- A normal healing time takes anything between 4-14 days and should not produce a thick scab but a thin layer of skin that rolls off during the healing process like a minor sunburn. Excess colour will roll of with it.- Line-work doesn’t necessarily have to be wrapped by the way. Shading and colour is more difficult and important to take care of.-After getting your new tattoo take off the cling-film when home.- Wash your hands.- Wash your tattoo with clean hands, warm water and normal shower-gel. Showers are absolutely fine and even a must.- The more you wash it the better but do not wash more than 4 times a day.- Tap it dry with a clean towel.- If time at hand, leave it open a while to breathe and dry a bit more.- Apply antiseptic cream like Bepanthen or Preparation H etc. Something with Dexpanthenol as ingredient is best. Not too thick!- For the first 2-3 days apply fresh cling-film again after the wash and always leave for 12 hour periods – of course with the cream under it. Repeat the washing ritual! Washing your tattoo is the most important thing to do. It helps the skin renew itself. The cling-film hinders the skin from getting stuck to clothing or bed-sheets.- It is important to stop using the cling-film after 3 days for the skin to breathe normally. The skin has pretty much renewed itself with the help of the cling-film.- From now on wash and cream as much as you can during the day, anything between 2-4 times daily.- In the next days don’t listen to any advice in bars, or so from called tattoo-experts in your circle of friends.- If there are any questions or problems call and ask ME please.- To take care of your tattoo for the future use +40 or even +50 Sun-blocker screen cream!- Welcome to the club.
