It was crazy how fast and efficient the process was, considering the entire staff was dressed like Gremlins. Yes, the furry suits and all. And it was glorious.KxnniFeb 5

No Average Ink Parlour

Appointment Only

Most “body art” shops are just tattoo parlors with piercers showing up from time to time. At Imperial, we value all forms of body art and ensure that only the most talented artists help you actualize your vision. Alongside world-class piercing services, Imperial Body Art hosts high-end tattoo services. Donna (aka Stella Sin) has been tattooing since 2006, excelling in all styles, but specializing in ethereal, geometric, black and grey, and watercolor tattoos.

Check out Donna/Stella on Instagram for samples of her most recent work.

Donna is training an apprentice, Teryn, and they are currently offering apprentice-prices for smaller pieces. Check out Teryn’s work on instagram at @tatter_tot_teryn

We do not tattoo minors under any circumstances. You will need to provide valid ID the day of your appointment.

    About TerynMeet Teryn, the tattoo wizard in training at Imperial Body Art.

How long does it take for a tattoo to heal?

On average, to settle beneath the skin, a tattoo goes through a settling period, which can take anywhere from a month to two months, at which point, the tattoo will be fully healed under the skin.

How should I care for my new tattoo?

After three hours, remove the bandage and wash your tattoo gently with mild soap and warm water. Pat it dry and apply a thin layer of ointment. Don’t scratch it! It might itch as it heals, but that’s normal and means it’s doing well.

What should I avoid before my tattoo appointment?

Steer clear of alcohol, Ibuprofen, and Aspirin 24 hours prior. Also, skip sun exposure or tanning beds 2 weeks before and after. Get good rest, eat well, hydrate, and wear comfy clothes for a breezy session!

Do you take tattoo walk-ins?

Our apprentice tattoo artist, Teryn, will accept tattoo walk-ins at select times. Call us at (208) 344-8287 to see when Teryn has availability for walk-ins. Our head tattoo artist, Stella Sin, works by appointment only.

Should I reschedule my tattoo appointment if I’m sick/pregnant?

Yes, being sick can make the experience more uncomfortable for you and risk spreading germs to the artist. If pregnant, it’s best to wait until after giving birth to avoid unnecessary strain.

Does getting a tattoo hurt?

Yes, pain levels vary by person and location. Some consider numbing creams, but they may wear off during the process, increasing sensitivity.
