I. The Consultation: Crafting Your Vision
The journey to a remarkable tattoo begins with a meaningful idea. During the initial consultation at Hendric Shinigami Tattoo, our experienced artists take the time to understand your vision, preferences, and expectations. Here’s what you can expect during this crucial phase:
- Design Discussion: We encourage you to bring any reference images or ideas you have in mind. Our artists will discuss your design concept, offering guidance on size, placement, and style based on their expertise.

II. Design and Stencil Creation: Precision in Every Line
Once you’ve finalized your design with our team, the next step is creating a stencil. This stencil acts as a precise guide for the tattooing process, ensuring that every line and detail is executed flawlessly. Here’s how we maintain our commitment to precision:
- Digital Rendering: Our artists use advanced digital tools to create a detailed rendering of your design. This process allows for fine-tuning of details and ensures a precise transfer to your skin.
- Stencil Application: With the stencil ready, it’s carefully applied to your skin. This is a critical step where precision is paramount, as it determines the final placement of your tattoo.

The actual tattooing process at Hendric Shinigami Tattoo is a harmonious blend of artistic creativity and technical skill. Our artists use state-of-the-art equipment, sterile needles, and the highest-quality inks to bring your vision to life. Here’s what you can expect during your tattoo session:
- Pain Management: Tattoo pain varies from person to person and depends on factors like location and individual pain tolerance. Our artists are skilled in making the experience as comfortable as possible. We may use numbing creams or gels upon request.
- Ink Selection: Tattoo ink comes in a wide range of colors, and our artists are experts in color theory. They’ll help you choose the perfect shades to make your design pop.
- Layering and Shading: Depending on your design, our artists will carefully layer ink and use shading techniques to create depth, contrast, and texture.
- Communication: During the session, open communication is key. If you need a break or have any concerns, don’t hesitate to let your artist know. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities.
