How To Make An Appointment
You can make an appointment with us by either coming by the shop during normal business hours or by phone. To hold your time slot we require a non- refundable, non-transferable deposit. (Cash or cards ONLY.) This deposit comes off the final price of the tattoo. If you need to reschedule your appointment please give us a 24 hour notice. That way we can set up a new time for you and free up our schedule for another client. If you DO NOT give us a 24 hour notice, you lose your deposit.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Of course it does. Some people think that the outline hurts the most. Others feel like the color or shading does. Generally people describe the pain as a bee sting or a hot cat scratch. If you want it bad enough you will take it.
Q: How much will my tattoo cost?
A: Price will be determined by your artist. Time, detail, placement and how well you sit still will factor in.
Q: What should I expect from a studio?
A: A portfolio of their work. Your decision should be based on your appreciation for the artist style. A clean studio and work space. A technician or artist that follows UNIVERSAL PRECAUTIONS.
A LICENSED ARTIST / TECHNICIAN NOT AN APPRENTICE!!! Unless you have been made aware of that and that you agree to allow it.
Q: What if I am scared of needles?
A: Most people do great. Sit still, relax and remember to breathe. Make sure you have eaten and let us know if you have a history of fainting or any allergies.
The items that we use are: A&D ointment, medical tape, rubbing alcohol, latex and pigments. You should not get a tattoo if you are allergic to any of these items, if you are taking blood thinners, pregnant or have a lot of allergies.
Q: Do I have to make an appointment?
A: We prefer you to make an appointment at least a few days ahead of time. Walk-ins are welcome and are done on a first come, first served basis. We are the busiest between the months of January - August. It is ALWAYS good to call ahead to set up an appointment or to see if you can be a walk-in. Appointments require a deposit to hold your spot and are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE.
Q: What if I can't find what I want?
A: Ask us! If you already have an Idea, then give us a description. If you have a picture to work from, that helps a lot. If you don't know what you would like, then ask the artist if they have anything they would like to do. There is no charge for custom drawings.
WE DO NOT DO ANY BODY PIERCING. TATTOOS ONLY.
