Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept walk-ins?
Currently, we are all appointment only; sorry no walk-ins.
How do I set an appointment?
To set an appointment, email one of our artists to set up a consultation first.
What should I expect at a consultation appointment?
A consultation appointment is usually 15-30 minutes. During the consultation, you will meet with your artist and discuss your ideas. If there are any reference images you would like to show your artist, please have them printed out, or readily accessible. After planning, your artist will give you an estimate for your tattoo, and you may set an appointment to do the tattoo at that time. The consultation itself is free, but to reserve an appointment time does require a deposit. The deposit amount is a percentage of the estimated cost of your tattoo.
Is a deposit refundable?
Deposits are non-refundable, but the amount is deducted from the total cost of your tattoo. For example, if your tattoo is estimated to be 100$, the artist may take a $20 deposit from you. This goes toward the time that the artist works on your drawing, and ensures that no time is lost for a scheduled appointment. When you get your tattoo, you would pay the remaining balance of 80$. If you need to reschedule your appointment, your deposit can be transferred to another day with
48 hours notice.
A no call/ no show means your deposit is forfeited.
How much does a tattoo cost?
The cost of a tattoo is decided by the amount of time it takes, the size, location, and detail. Price varies from piece to piece. The shop minimum is 60$. Some tattoos especially larger pieces) are priced at an hourly rate, with our artists ranging from $120-150/hr. To get an estimate for your tattoo, set a consultation appointment.
Can I bring my child with me?
Only people 18 years or older are allowed in the tattoo studio, no exceptions. We do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18, even with parental/guardian consent.
Can I bring a friend with me to my appointment?
You may bring one or a maximum of two friends with you to your appointment.
What else should I bring to my appointment?
Bring your state issued ID for paperwork. You may also bring a snack and/or non-alcoholic beverage. This is recommended especially for long sessions. Wear something comfortable, with easy access to the area that will be tattooed. Some people like to bring a pillow, listen to headphones, or play a game on their smartphone, whatever helps you to relax.
What is the aftercare process for a tattoo?
The healing time for a tattoo is 2-4 weeks. Wash your tattoo 3-4 times a day with antibacterial liquid soap (like dial or softsoap). Lightly moisturize as needed with a fragrance free hand lotion (like lubriderm or aquaphor).
Do not scratch or pick at your tattoo, go swimming or soak in a tub, or expose your tattoo to prolonged sun until it is healed. Your tattoo artist will talk with you about what to expect with healing and will be happy to provide you with printed aftercare instructions. Everyone's skin heals differently, please ask us if you have any questions or concerns.
Should I tip my tattoo artist?
Tips are never expected, but always appreciated; whatever you feel comfortable with.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash or credit card. Sorry, no checks.
