Tattoo Policies and Procedures
We do not tattoo minors!! Everyone receiving a tattoo must be at least 18 years of age and present a government issued photo ID (license, state ID, passport, etc.) at the time of their appointment. We are unable to use any other forms of ID including Social Security cards, birth certificates, or school issued IDs.
As part of our COVID-19 policies, we are limiting the amount of people inside the studio at a time. Please do not bring guests to appointments, they will be asked to wait outside the building until the end of your appointment. Exceptions to this rule will be made for disabled individuals who require a support/care person, and those who rely on others to translate for them in order to communicate.
Some of our artists' stations are located on the second floor of the studio. Please inform an artist of any necessary accessibility requirements ahead of your appointment and they will make the proper arrangements to ensure everyone’s needs are met.
Shop minimum for tattoos is $150. This is the least amount a tattoo by one of our artists will cost. The cost of a tattoo can depend on many different factors and as such will be determined by the artist performing the tattoo. Our front counter and piercing staff are therefore unable to give prices over the phone.
All tattoo appointments require a deposit which will be determined by the amount of time the tattoo is projected to take. Deposit amounts will be deducted from the overall cost of a tattoo.
Deposit amounts are as follows:
2 ½ hrs+ – $50
3 ½ hrs+ – $100
4 hrs+ – $150 - $200
Full Day – $250
Deposits are non transferable. Each individual with an appointment is responsible for paying their own deposit.
Deposits must be made within 24hrs of booking an appointment unless otherwise noted by an artist. Not making a deposit within the 24 hr time frame may result in the loss of a booked appointment slot.
Reschedules are for emergencies only. While we understand that sometimes things happen that are outside of our clients’ control, last minute cancellations and reschedules can have a negative impact on our artists. Reschedules or cancellations must be made at least 72 hours before scheduled appointment times or deposits will be forfeited. Not showing up to an appointment without contacting an artist beforehand will also result in the forfeiture of a deposit.
Artists are not responsible for appointment reminders. Be sure to confirm the date and time of all set appointments. Please be on time, lateness may result in a rescheduled appointment or the need to finish a design in another appointment which will also require a deposit.
Artists are not required to send drawings ahead of appointments. Designs will be shown at the appointment and any change requests may be made at that time. Extensive design alterations may result in the need to reschedule an appointment.
Aftercare instructions will be given at the end of a tattoo session and we encourage everyone to read over them thoroughly and ask any relevant questions about caring for a new tattoo.
