Situated right next to a breathtaking forest, the studio offers a serene escape into the embrace of nature's beauty. Your journey begins here.

Crafted by Intuition, Infused with Meaning
I believe that tattoos are not just ink on skin; they are deeply personal expressions of one's journey, essence, and connection to the universe. My handpoked tattoos are more than just art – they are a conduit for self-discovery, growth, and healing. Each design is intuitively created, working in collaboration with your energy and aspirations.
The Ritual of Transformation
The tattooing process is not just a service; it's a sacred experience. I infuse every tattoo session with a special ceremony, honoring the ancient traditions of ritualistic body art. This ceremony is designed to align your intentions with the universe, inviting positivity, healing, and personal evolution into your life.
Nature's Influence and Magical Symbolism
Nature is my ultimate muse. The designs are deeply inspired by the intricate patterns of the natural world, reflecting the interconnectedness of all living things. Magic symbolism and pagan elements intertwine seamlessly within our creations, weaving tales of spiritual awakening and empowerment.
Beyond the Machine, Embracing the Soul
Unlike machine tattoos, the handpoked technique is a gentle, mindful process that embraces the essence of soulful connection. With less pain and more authenticity, I take the time to ensure that each stroke resonates with your spirit. The result is not only a stunning piece of body art but also a symbol of your inner journey.

A Path of Growth and Healing
Soulflow Tattoos are more than skin deep; they are catalysts for personal transformation. Through the artistry and the intention behind each design, I aim to provide you with a visual reminder of your inherent strength and the infinite possibilities for growth and healing.
Connection is the invisible thread that weaves hearts and souls together, transcending distance and time.
Tattoo Appointment Request
If you find yourself uncertain about any of the instructions below, or if questions arise, or even if you encounter any healing issues with your tattoo, don't hesitate to reach out to me immediately for assistance.
After our tattoo session, I apply a transparent second-skin dressing, ensuring its splash-proof and breathable nature.
It's perfectly normal to observe some smudgy ink beneath the dressing's surface within 24 hours.
Three days post-application, it's time to gently remove the dressing. Opt for a shower and warm water to peel it off smoothly.
In the event that the dressing comes off earlier, resist the urge to replace it with cling film. Allow your tattoo to breathe, avoiding clothing coverage. In this case, begin moisturizing with balm after the first day.
Once the dressing is off, start a routine of washing your tattoo with mild soap and warm water, both in the morning and evening. Pat it dry gently using clean tissue or a soft towel.
Embrace a thrice-daily moisturizing ritual using the natural tattoo balm I'll provide. It's vegan-friendly, but do let me know about allergies to ensure suitability.
Be vigilant against scratching or unnecessary irritation, granting your tattoo the space to breathe freely.
For three weeks, refrain from swimming or immersing your tattoo in water. In the initial week, avoid vigorous workouts to prevent bacteria from infiltrating your healing tattoo.
Shield your tattoo from intense, direct sunlight for the initial three weeks. In sunny situations, cover with clean bandaging or clothing until it's fully healed. After this period, always apply factor 50 sunscreen on your tattoo when exposed to the sun.
Your tattoo will achieve complete healing within 3-4 weeks. I'd love to see its final splendor – please share a picture via WhatsApp or email once it's healed!
Should you require any touch-ups after a month, rest assured they are offered free of charge, provided your diligent care is evident.
Your tattoo's vibrance is our shared achievement – nurture it with care and witness its enduring allure.
Handpoke Tattoo FAQs
What is a handpoked tattoo and how is it different to machine tattooing?
Foregoing tattoo machines, I utilize professional, sterile, single-use needles, meticulously applying ink dot by dot. This method, echoing ancient practices spanning millennia, resonates with my passion for heritage preservation. Many find the process comparably less discomforting, even though its deliberate nature extends its duration. These handpoked tattoos, cared for diligently, parallel the longevity of machine tattoos. Emanating both history and artistry, each tattoo encapsulates a legacy upheld through time.
What do healed handpoked tattoos look like?
The appearance of your tattoo a month post-healing typically endures over time. The ink on any tattoo made in any method will always ever so slightly spread as it settles into the skin. The tattoos embody the beauty of imperfection, serving as bespoke handcrafted artworks gracing your skin.
Should you observe any 'drop out' during the healing process, where ink fades, I provide a free touch-up session to ensure your satisfaction.
How long do they last, are they permanent?
Yes, hand poked tattoos are permanent.
Does it hurt?
The sensation is often likened to tiny, repetitive plucking or gentle pricks, rather than the intense burning associated with machine tattoos. Many find this experience relaxing, even soothing enough to induce sleep. While the sensation can intensify with the tattoo's size, duration, and placement, it generally remains far more manageable than machine tattooing.
Is the ink vegan?
The black ink I utilize is entirely vegan. Furthermore, I'm committed to minimizing plastic usage, incorporating biodegradable surface covers and tools whenever feasible.
Can I do sports after my tattoo?
Aside from swimming, you're free to resume your regular activities once the dressing is removed after 3 days. Yet, I'd recommend avoiding intense, sweaty exercise for about a week, allowing your tattoo time to heal. Listening to your body and being mindful of its needs will ensure optimal healing and the best outcome for your tattoo.
Can I bring someone with me?
While you undergo your transformational journey, your guest is free to enjoy leisurely strolls, immerse themselves in a book, or simply come and go as they please. The process may take some time, so this arrangement ensures their comfort. To enhance your experience, I kindly request that you inform me in advance if anyone will be accompanying you. This helps me ensure a seamless and accommodating environment for all.
Can I get tattooed with a friend?
Sharing this experience with a friend adds an extra layer of meaning and fun! When you're ready to book, just indicate in the booking form that you'd like to come with a friend. Please be aware that there might be some waiting time involved during the tattooing process. To ensure your comfort, I recommend bringing along some snacks and refreshments, as there aren't any nearby shops or eateries for quick bites. This thoughtful preparation will help enhance your shared experience even further.
