/Making a Difference
As a group of queer, neurodiverse individuals, we feel that it is very important for us to provide an environment that caters to everyone's needs. We feel that there is a huge gap in the tattoo industry for inclusiveness, that we at Pastel Palace have decided to fill.
When you enter the studio or book with us, you may be asked:
-if you require disability access (if so, we will work from our downstairs studio room rather than our regular upstairs ones!)
-any special requests like quieter music, stim toys and noise cancelling headphones
-asking for your favourite music, TV shows and movies to watch or listen to during your appointments.
We know from personal experience that navigating a largely male dominated tattoo industry is a scary experience, trying to find a shop that will cater for you, your needs and identity is a tricky one!
We want to create the perfect environment for our clients that is safe and comfortable, because getting a tattoo or piercing should be a fun experience! We want to be the studio that we all needed when first experiencing the industry, as clients and now as artists. Body mods are for everyone, and if this helps people feel included, valid and safe in our studio, then we have done our job right.
Furthermore, the overall vibe of our studio is unlike any other. It is bright, kawaii as heck and super chill: no loud heavy music, no dark workplaces with scary, unapproachable artists.. Getting the tattoo or piercing is only half of the experience! Our team of artists are super friendly, all working from private and secure studio rooms. This ensures that nobody else from the studio can enter unless given permission, and no dreaded shared work rooms with other artists, meaning you won't have to be tattooed or pierced in a room full of strangers.
Lastly, we truly want you to leave the studio happy, with either a tattoo or a piercing (maybe even both!) that you will love and take care of. We can set you up with an in depth aftercare information sheet, as well as sell the best tattoo aftercare balm to ensure you know exactly how to look after your new addition, along with being available to answer any questions via social media after your appointment. Both tattooists offer free retouches on their tattoos when booked in your next tattoo session, and our piercings come with a lifetime guarantee, meaning you will be looked after by our team, even after your appointment comes to an end.
