FAQS

Tattoo Sketches_edited.jpg

01

DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS?

We absolutely do take walk ins! In fact our piercing service is entirely walk-in based, and for small, simple tattoos a consult is unneeded. However, if there isn’t an artist available at the time that you walk-in, you may have to wait until one opens up or be scheduled for a later time.

02

WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

Please do not drink alcohol or use any type of blood thinning OTC medication (such as Ibuprofen and Aspirin) within 24 hours of your appointment.

Please refrain from sun exposure/tanning beds the 2 weeks prior to (as well as the 2 weeks after) your appointment. Get a good rest the night before, eat a full meal, and drink lots of water before coming in. We also recommend that you wear loose, comfortable clothing that will limit obstruction to the area which we will be tattooing.

03

WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?

Please bring a government-issued photo ID (license, state ID, passport, etc.) with you to your appointment.

Please bring any reference material with you. The day of your tattoo appointment, please bring anything your artist requested of you at your consultation. Feel free to bring your headphones, a tablet, book, magazine, bottle of water/any other non-alcoholic beverage with a lid, and light snacks if desired.

04

WHAT ARE OUR POLICIES ON TATTOOING AND PIERCING MINORS?

We require all minors (under the age of 18) getting pierced arrive with their parent or legal guardian. The minor will need to have a copy of their birth certificate and government issued photo ID for both the parent and minor. We do not offer underage tattooing at this time

06

HOW MUCH WILL MY TATTOO COST?

The cost of your tattoo will all depend on its size, location, amount of detail, and the time needed to complete it. Pricing starts at $80 (shop minimum) for smaller tattoos and goes up from there.

For larger projects, pricing is determined by the length of the session and whether or not the tattoo is black & grey or color.

Sessions are priced according to your artist’s hourly rate, which can vary anywhere between $100-$150 an hour.

08

HOW DO I SCHEDULE A TATTOO?

We understand you want to get in as soon as possible, but please be as flexible as you can with us when booking your appointment.

 

For larger designs and coverups we recommend beginning the process by booking a consultation appointment. Consultations are free and can be done by either calling the shop or coming in.

You will meet with your artist on a set day and time for approximately 1/2 hour in order to review your vision as well as its location, sizing and details. If your tattoo appointment isn’t already booked, your tattooist will schedule you by the end of your consultation. We do request you put down a deposit at this time in order to hold the spot. The entire deposit will go towards the price of your tattoo, simply bring the remaining balance with you on the day of your appointment.

If for some reason you need to reschedule, call the shop within 24 hrs before your appointment time to move your time or day.

05

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME TO MY APPOINTMENT?

Good tattoos take time and focus. We ask that you limit your visitors to only 1 extra person with you in the tattoo area at a time. Contact your artist directly to see if we can accommodate an exception for special circumstances.

07

DOES IT HURT TO GET TATTOOED?

Pain threshold varies by person. But typically yes, getting a tattoo does hurt. The pain is manageable but some areas are more sensitive than others. If you are considering using a numbing product, consult first with your artist on their recommendations and instructions prior to coming in for your appointment.
