Pat Sinatra, owner of the original Pat’s Tats established in 1976, is still tattooing but is now in private practice.
Pat, an APT Master Tattooist with nearly 45 years experience, is available Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. She is booked about a month ahead but quite often, a last minute cancellation will open a space during the week.
She is sometimes available at tattoo conventions near you. Check back often to see where you might connect with her. Or contact her to request a connection at a venue or event.
Pat will transform your idea into wearable art that is uniquely your own. Whether you are looking for your very first tattoo, extensive body coverage or a repair/cover-up...every project is special.
1. Remove the bandage in the morning. Leaving it on overnight will help prevent you from becoming stuck to your bedding or night clothes.
2. Wash the tattoo thoroughly with cool to warm soapy water. Gently remove any surface blood and ointment. Please don't use a washcloth or scrub brush.
3. Rinse well and pat dry.
4. Rub a tiny amount of A&D Ointment into the tattoo a minimum of 3 times per day for the first 3 days. If you can wipe off excess ointment, you've applied too much.
On the 4th day, switch to moisturizer. Recommended products include: H2Ocean, Aquaphor, Curel, Nivea, and Eucerin.
• ALWAYS wash your hands before and after touching your new tattoo. Your hands are the most likely source of infection.
• Please be aware of sharing your DNA. Keep blood and body fluids from contacting other people or surfaces.
• DO NOT bandage again.
• DO NOT use harsh soaps. Use a gentle moisturizing soap or an antibacterial soap. Use a liquid or foaming soap or a fresh bar of soap. Do not share bar soap.
• DO NOT pick or scratch the tattoo.
• DO NOT soak the tattoo for one week. (No tubs, saunas, swimming, etc. but please shower.)
• DO NOT expose to direct sunlight for two weeks. Afterward, always use a sunblock to keep your tattoo bright.
• DO NOT PANIC! If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call otherwise, seek medical attention.
