About

I'm Soraya Yumi, spinning the classic tattoo game into something uniquely mine. Old school vibes meet new school sass in my ink creations

I've had the privilege of honing my tattooing skills in the dynamic atmosphere of Sao Paulo and now, the historic charm of London. With two years in the industry, my journey is a blend of learning and creativity, attracting tattoo enthusiasts who appreciate a touch of global inspiration. Join me as we explore the diverse and fascinating world of tattoo art together.

As a tattoo artist, I often receive inquiries from clients regarding their tattoos, pricing or the process of booking an appointment. To help address these common queries, I have compiled a list of frequently asked questions. If you have any additional inquiries, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

How do I book an appointment?

Step 1 Go to the link in book section and click on "Book an appointment" Step 2 Fill out the form to share your new tattoo idea Step 3 We’ll have a chat about your idea and make a plan Step 4 Find an available date and get your appointment confirmed

What kind of special care are necessary before my appointment?

1. Don’t drink or abuse drugs the day before. 2. Stay hydrated during the whole process, including and specially after you get your tattoo 3.Make sure to eat properly before the appointment. 4. Avoid pills like paracetamol or aspirin specially if you have a long session 5. Try to war comfy clothes and old the tattoo ink doesn’t come off the clothes

Do I need to pay a deposit fee?

Absolutely! Your deposit acts as a reservation for your tattoo session. Think of it as a mutual promise – it secures your spot, and it's my assurance that you're as committed to this as I am. Here's the deal: I start planning and preparing for your tattoo as soon as your deposit is in. Unfortunately, I've had a few instances where clients didn't show up or were significantly late. To make sure that everyone's time is valued, I've implemented a policy: if you need to cancel or reschedule, just give me a heads-up at least 5 days in advance. This way, I can adjust my schedule accordingly, and your deposit will be safe. However, if there's a no-show without notice, or if you're more than an hour late, the deposit will be retained. It's all about mutual respect – I promise to dedicate my time and creativity to your tattoo, and I trust you to value that commitment. If you're over an hour late, we'll need to cancel that session, and a new deposit will be required to book another slot. Remember, it's not just about ink on skin; it's about creating art together. And that starts with respecting each other's time and effort. Can't wait to work with you on your tattoo journey!

What are your working times?

Wednesdays: 12 pm - 9 pm Saturdays and Sundays: 12 pm - 7 pm

It’s my first tattoo, can I book it with you?

Absolutely! I'm thrilled you're considering me for your first tattoo adventure. It's an honor to be part of this special milestone. Just a heads up: your skin is a living canvas, and it heals your tattoo much like it would a wound. This means that the final look will differ slightly from what you see on paper. Typically, tattoos lose about 30% of their darkness and sharpness after healing, and they'll continue to evolve as you and your skin age. Also, it's important to remember that size matters with tattoos. Those tiny, intricate designs might look great on paper, but they can lose their charm on skin over time. To ensure your tattoo remains beautiful through the years, we'll need to work with a size that allows for natural skin changes. Don't worry, though – I'm here to guide you through every step, ensuring your tattoo not only looks fantastic initially but also stands the test of time. Can't wait to bring your vision to life!

Can I see the design before my appointment?

I totally get the excitement of wanting to see your design beforehand, but due to my jam-packed schedule, I can't send out designs before the appointment day. Crafting each tattoo design is a detailed and time-consuming process, often just as intricate as the tattooing itself! Here's how it works: When you arrive for your appointment, we'll unveil your design together. It's a special moment that I always look forward to! We can then discuss and make any necessary tweaks to ensure your tattoo is just right. However, please keep in mind that major changes, especially ones that deviate from my signature style, might not be feasible. For instance, if you're after super fine line work, it might be best to find an artist who specializes in that style. I'm all about collaboration and trust in this process. Your deposit is part of that trust, ensuring commitment from both sides. My goal is always to create something unique that resonates with you. So, let's team up and make your tattoo session an amazing experience. I'm confident you'll love the design I've prepared for you!

Do you do colour tattoos?

I primarily work with black ink, which is my specialty and the heart of my style. While I mostly stick to this palette, I'm open to considering the occasional splash of color depending on the design. It's not my usual fare, but I'm always up for discussing unique ideas and seeing if we can make an exception that aligns with my artistic approach. Let's chat about your vision and see where our creativity takes us! Here's how it works: When you arrive for your appointment, we'll unveil your design together. It's a special moment that I always look forward to! We can then discuss and make any necessary tweaks to ensure your tattoo is just right.

Can you recreate another artist's work on me?

Thanks for asking! I'm all about originality and creating unique pieces, so I don't do direct copies of other artists' work. However, I'd love to take inspiration from your references, including works by other tattoo artists, to craft something uniquely yours. Think of it as collaborating on a one-of-a-kind piece that reflects your vision and my style. Just a note: this doesn't apply to generic designs like outlined maps, which I'm happy to incorporate into your custom tattoo. Can't wait to start this creative journey with you and design a tattoo that's as unique as you are!
