We at Body & Soul Tattoo believe that a tattoo should be a
reflection of an individual’s personal style, a remembrance of a special person or occasion, dedication to that special someone or to celebrate a personal accomplishment. We invite you to experience the artistry of our staff as they transpose your deepest desires into a work of art. Our artists believe that your body is a living canvas which displays an artistic interpretation of your deepest emotions and desires, your loves or your personal achievements in life. To accomplish this, the artist must develop a personal bond with the individual to have an understating of your vision for body art. This bond will help develop an image in the mind of our artist, which he will then use as a visual model to create body art which you will enjoy for years to come.
Body & Soul Tattoos encourages our clients to bring in their own drawings and ideas for our artists to work from to create the final rendering on paper prior to completing the tattoo. Consultations are available with all our artists to further discuss plans, details and also to give advice on placement, size, style and colors.

PICKING A DESIGN
Choose what you like! You have to live with your tattoo for the rest of your life. Discuss size & color with your artist to achieve the look you want. Sometimes it is better to leave artistic aspects of your tattoo up to the wisdom and experience of your chosen artist.
PLACEMENT OF DESIGN
Give the location of your tattoo considerable thought. It is there forever. If your concerns are for the sensation and level of discomfort involved, your artist should be happy to discuss these aspects with you.
CHOICE OF ARTIST
This subject is probably the most personal of all aspects when receiving a tattoo. If you’re considering a tattoo, find the artist that fulfills your needs art-wise as well as in professionalism, price and last but not least, personality. All should make you feel comfortable.
PAYING THE PRICE!
Absolutely don’t shop around for “the best price”. This is a trade in which you should see examples of the artist’s work and question their knowledge. This is not a trade to be bartered with; you pay an hourly rate for time & expertise.
TATTOO SAFETY ADVICE
With the advent of many communicable diseases, some fatal, it has become necessary to institute certain isolation and sterilization procedures in the tattoo process to assure the public of a safe, risk-free tattoo. The following advice has been prepared by professional tattooists working with local, state and national health authorities.
- Always insist that you see your tattooist remove a new needle & tube set-up from a sealed envelope immediately prior to your tattoo.
- Be certain you see your tattooist pour a new ink supply into a new disposable container.
- Make sure your artist puts on a new pair of disposable gloves before setting up tubes, needles and ink supplies.
- Satisfy yourself that the shop furnishings & tattooist are clean & orderly in appearance; much like a medical facility.
- Feel free to question the tattooist as to any of his sterile procedures & isolation techniques. Take time to observe them at work & do not hesitate to inquire about their experience & qualifications in the tattoo field.
- If the tattooist is qualified professional, they will have no problem complying with standards above & beyond these simple guidelines.
- If the artist or studio does not appear up to these standards or if they become evasive when questioned, seek out a professional tattooist.

Stretching: There is no charge for stretching with the purchase of the jewelry. What Piercing are not offered and the reasons why: Surface Piercing: surface piercing has a migration rate in excess of 85%. This means that the jewelry will be pushed out of your body within a 2 week to a 6 month period leaving only a scar. This piercing is illegal everywhere there are body piercing regulations including the State of New Jersey.
Dermal Anchors: The dermal anchor has become very popular with many individuals and is offered by the vast majority of body piercing facilities in this area. The process of performing a dermal anchor is not body piercing, it is a surgical procedure, preformed by individuals who are not licensed to perform medical procedures. BY definition, a surgical procedure involves making an incision in the skin to have access to the internal cavity of the body. To perform a dermal anchor an incision is made to insert the implant (dermal anchor). With the incision made the dermas (skin) is lifted and the dermal anchor is inserted under all the layers of skin. The bodies dermas is 2mm think, yet the dermal anchor shaft exceeds 4 mm or twice the thickness of the dermal layer. The foreign material (the Dermal Anchor) is not accessible for cleaning and yet is still exposed to airborne pathogens and other types of pathogens until the skin has healed around the shaft of the dermal anchor. Once a piercer has inserted a dermal anchor and the skin has healed around the dermal anchor shaft, an additional surgical procedure must be preformed to remove the dermal anchor from the body. Dermal anchors are unsafe and have the ability to cause severe medical problems, because the anchor is in the internal cavity of the body. Infections are directly accessible to the blood stream and infections can travel to other parts of the body, very rapidly. These are the reasons Body and Soul will not perform dermal anchors and we refuse to jeopardize the health and safety of our clients.
Standard Piercings: Many of the piercings preformed by many piercers are deemed unsafe by Body and Soul and therefore we will not offer those piercings, regardless of the piercings popularity. Piercing such as the webbing, smiley and other styles of piercing have been deemed unsafe by the malpractice insurance carriers for the body piercing industry. If a Piercing shop is performing these style piercings they ether do not have malpractice insurance or their insurance carrier was not informed that these piercing are being preformed. Protect your health and safety; true professionals in the body piercing industry do not perform piercing that jeopardizes the health and safety of their clients.
