Do you guys take walk-ins?
Answer: Yes, we do. Please call first to inquire about availability for that day. We take walk-ins when we can, they are first come first serve so we can never guarantee walk-in availability. Feel free to call before coming in and we can give you an idea as to what the day is looking like, but we can only tell you the current day's situation.
How does one go about setting up an appointment?
Answer: If you have an artist in mind give the shop a call, and we will tell you the days that artist works and we will have you stop in on one of those days or give you a number to contact them directly. If you don't have an artist in mind stop in the shop before you want to set the appointment. Some artists require you to stop in prior to the appointment that way they can see what you are looking to get done, that way they can book the appropriate amount of time. In addition, some artists require a deposit to hold the time slots, and the amounts usually range from $20-$100. The deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable. If you need to move your appointment please give a call 48 hours prior to your appointment and we can get that adjusted for you, if you no call no show your appointment you will lose your deposit.
How would I go about setting a consultation appointment?
Answer: If you have a specific artist in mind, just give the shop a call and we will let you know their preferred method to get that set up. If you don't have an artist in mind, either check out their portfolios (via Facebook, Instagram or the website) and pick out a couple artists that you like their styles and then refer to the first part of this answer. If you don't have an artist preference, stop in any day that we are open and we can have you talk to whoever is available.
What do you suggest before getting tattooed?
Answer: Get a good night's rest prior to your tattoo appointment, eat a decent meal and don't drink alcohol.
What if I am coming from out of town and I want to make an appointment?
Answer: What we suggest to do in that situation, if you don't have an artist in mind, is to look through portfolios online (Facebook, Instagram, or the website) and pick out a couple artists that you like. From there give us a call at the shop and we will help to narrow down your choices. Once an artist is decided they will assist you from there. If you do have an artist in mind you can just give us a call and we will go from there.
I called yesterday and haven't heard back from artist, are they avoiding me?
Answer: No, they aren't. It usually takes a few days for the artists to return phone calls and e-mails. They usually return calls within a week, and if you don't hear from them after a week, or feel forgotten please feel free to give the shop a call again.
How much do tattoos cost?
Answer: Each artist prices their tattoos differently, some are strictly by the hour (usually $100-150 per hour depending on the artist.) Others may charge a flat rate per piece. If you have a maximum budget, please let us know that up front so we may best accommodate you.
How do I care for my tattoo?
Answer: Every artist will give you different aftercare for your tattoo, so listen to what they tell you. If you have forgotten any of their instructions, please just give a call to the shop and we can help you out. Please do not take aftercare advice from your friends, family or the internet.
Can my child come watch me get tattooed?
Answer: If your child is 13 years or younger, they cannot, 14 and up they can (keep in mind, tattoos can take some time and kids can get bored easily).
Can you tell me who tattooed me, I can't remember?
Answer: Unfortunately, we can't. Each artist here keeps their paperwork, so unless you have a good description of the artist or a time frame and whereabouts in the studio you got tattooed we won't be of much assistance.
