Primal Tradition Tattoo

Meet Doc:

I have been an artist for most of my life and began tattooing in 1994 when a good friend of mine put a tattoo machine in my hand for the first time. It was an amazing experience and I have dedicated my life to tattooing ever since.

I soon became the owner of the first shop I apprenticed in. By a year into my work I found myself featured in four magazines.

I have worked with Big Bob and Travis Franklin and in 2002 traded a tattooing apprenticeship with Kat, owner of K&Gs, who had flown out to California for seminars through Industrial Strength. Kat taught advanced and exotics in piercing, Through Kat, I became an expert in modification, piercing and scarification using cauterizing techniques.

Tattoo Care


Many artists have different ways of caring for a healing tattoo. Our tattoo care instructions are formulated specifically for our artists work, and is a product of 20 years in the tattoo industry.

Essentially, your tattoo is an open wound like a burn or a very bad rash and that’s the way it needs to be treated.

The basic items you need to buy to care for your tattoo are: Dial liquid antibacterial soap. Saran Wrap or non-stick gauze. The suggested ointment by artist. Paper towels.

You want to start with washing your hands thoroughly, then wash the tattoo with your fingertips or hands only- no abrasive cloths.┬áRinse your tattoo twice as long as you’ve washed it, making sure all the Soap Suds & soap residue is completely gone. Lastly rinse it in cold water. Pat dry your tattoo using the paper towels, do not rub dry.

You may have some itching, but do not pick or scratch. If your tattoo itches tap it gently with a clean fingertip to relieve itching from healing. Never touch your tattoo without washing your hands and never let anyone else touch it.

Wait at least 15 minutes after washing and apply a very thin layer of the suggested ointment by your artist. The ointment should only be a drop the size of a pea on the end of your finger. massage the appointment into your skin thoroughly. It might be a little bit sensitive but this is necessary. If your tattoo looks wet, pat dry with the paper towel until just looks shiny. NOT WET.. Too much ointment will smother your tattoo and prolong the healing process.

For the first 24 to 48 hours any time the tattoo will be in contact with fibrous material such as bed sheets or clothes you need to wrap with saran wrap or a non stick gauze.

After 24 hrs, when you’ve washed the tattoo and let it dry as long as its smooth and not a rough scab you don’t have to wrap the tattoo any longer, just keep clean and when it feels dry apply just a small amount of ointment.

You’ll want to avoid soaking in the tub, swimming or direct sunlight.

If you have any questions please contact us- there’s no such thing as a dumb question.
