If you are planning on visiting Pleasure Island Tattoo they would like you to keep in mind that it is best to make sure you don’t get sunburned before getting a tattoo done.  It’s generally best to plan your appointment towards the later part of your vacation and also limit exposure to the sun on the area where you wish to get your tattoo.  Tattoos are permanent and you don’t want to do anything to compromise the beauty of your piece.  Pleasure Island Tattoo knows we live in an area where sun and fun go together and with their experience they can guide you through the process and give you tips and advice to help ensure that you will get a lifetime of enjoyment from your tattoo.
