Is there a minimum age to be tattooed?
You must be 18 years of age or older with valid government-issued ID. At artist’s discretion, one may be 16 years of age or older and must have 1) Government-issued photo ID with birthdate, 2) Original birth certificate, 3) Parental/guardian government-issued ID, and your parent/guardian must be present at the session and consult, if applicable.
Do you accept walk-ins or same day appointments?
Walk-ins are accepted but depend on artist availability and your tattoo design. We highly recommend setting up an appointment in advance as your tattoo may not be able to be done as a same day walk-in appointment.
How much is a deposit?
Shop deposits are $20 / $50 / $100 depending on the size/design/detail of the tattoo. Convention appointment deposits are $50 / $100. Deposits are non-refundable, no work is started, and no appointments are made without a deposit.
What is your deposit policy?
Full deposit terms are given before payment, but the general points are that they’re non-refundable, expire 6 months after latest session or consult, are lost if you’re a no-show and/or reschedule within 12 hours of your appointment (except medical emergencies) and/or are an hour or later to your appointment with no notice. The deposit comes off the last tattoo session.
Do you offer discounts?
We offer a 10% discount for active or retired police, fire, EMT, or military. Proof of service required at consult or session, discount is not transferrable to other person/party, and discount can’t be refunded from previous sessions.
I have an appointment today, but I’m sick. What should I do?
Reschedule! If you’re sick, don’t come into the shop. Deposit terms regarding rescheduling apply.
I have a child/children. Can I have them in the shop?
They can be in the shop only for your consult or stopping in with a quick question but are not permitted in the shop for your actual session(s) or for walk-in appointments. Children must be controlled and behaved while in the shop.
Are pets allowed in the shop?
No, except for service dogs with proper/official documentation.
Can my family/friend(s) come to watch?
Yes, but keep it to one or two people max. If they are disturbing the artist, they will have to leave. Please note that tattooing can be a long process that spectators may find boring after a while, so we recommend that your family/friend(s) have separate transportationor something to keep them occupied for your appointment.
Do you do tattoo parties?
Yes. Parties can only be in-shop. Party options can range from a small group during shop hours to privately renting the shop for a full day. These must be booked in advance and age requirements still apply. Pricing varies between number of people, design/sizing, and if it’s a party during shop hours or private event.
How long have you been open?
Our shop opened in May 2015, and the shop owner has been tattooing since 1998.
