That’s great, we love art! If your tattoo is more than 4 weeks old, you are able to float and keep your appointment.
If not, we recommend you wait until then.

Yes! We are regularly offering 90-minute and 60-minute sessions. However, we will entertain longer sessions upon request of up to 4 hours.
Due to our state if the art filtration system, we do not have to change the water between each float. Each tank is equipped with a $30,000 filtration system that works by cycling the water at 100 gallons per minute for 10 minutes after each session. There are two diametric earth filters on each tank with different size micron cartridges, a UV filter, and an OZONE generator. This vigorously cleanses the water and air after each person creating a guaranteed sterile environment every time you float.
Our tanks are the only tanks, that are commercially rated by the government with a UL and NSF certification. This allows us not to be required to use chemicals while cleaning our tanks, unlike other centers. When you float with us you have the peace of mind, you’re only absorbing a healthy dose of magnesium and not pool grade cleaners as well. More info on our tanks.
Our Float Lab float tanks are not small, the smallest measuring 8′ long by 4′ wide by 7′ high.
Yes, that’s right you can stand up in our tanks, unlike clam shell and original design float tanks.
For more peace of mind, once you are situated in the tank you cannot tell how large it is because of how dark it is. Over the past seven years we have had several customers with severe claustrophobia float and were not affected.
We are not sure what you are talking about ::wink:: but you are welcome to try.
