- 1. How do I schedule a tattoo appointment?
Contact us through the website and we will email instructions on scheduling an in-person consultation to start the process. Come prepared with an idea of what you want and any visual references you have to share. This 15 minute consultation will be used to discuss those design ideas and collect a nonrefundable deposit of $150 to book your tattoo appointment. This deposit will be applied to the final cost of your tattoo. There is a $60 reschedule fee for all tattoo appointments.
- 2. When are appointments booked?
We book tattoo appointments Tuesdays through Saturdays starting at 1PM. In-person consultations are booked before those between 1PM and 3PM depending on availability and schedule. We will provide options in our first response to your inquiry.
- 3. How much will the tattoo cost?
The hourly rate for tattooing is $150 per hour. Your specific tattoo price will depend on factors such as size, placement, complexity of design, and how many sittings it takes to complete it. Payment in full will be due at the end of each session. (Remember the nonrefundable deposit paid during your consultation is applied to the final cost of your tattoo.) We accept cash and credit cards however, there is a fee for processing through credit.
- 4. Do I get a drawing of my tattoo prior to my appointment?
No, sketches and drawings are not shared until ready to use on the first appointment.
- 5. Can an old tattoo be fixed or covered?
We are happy to touch up, add color or rework an old tattoo. However, not every tattoo is ideal for fixing or covering so we would schedule a consultation to determine whether this is possible.
- 6. Are tattoos painful?
Pain varies from person to person and on any given day but yes they cause pain. It can be compared to scratching a sunburn. The best thing to do is come rested, make sure to drink plenty of water and eat before you arrive.
- 7. How to care for your new tattoo?
It takes two people to ensure a good tattoo. One doing the work, and the one taking care of it. Leave wrap on for 24 hours. Remove wrap and wash with mild, liquid, antibacterial soap and water and pat dry. Apply recommended ointment or lotion, sparingly, i.e. Aquaphor. Do not pick at it while it is healing. Keep out of sun as much as possible. You can get your tattoo wet, only when you shower or wash it, DO NOT soak or submerge your tattoo under water. Your tattoo can take up to 14 days to fully heal.
- Please note, you must be 18 years of age with proper government-issued identification.
We don’t tattoo if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.
