Getting Your New Tattoo
Before Your Appointment
During Your Appointment

Please ask your artist before taking pictures or filming as this can be a distraction.  


Please no cell phones in the procedure areas.


Feel free to bring a friend for moral support!  However, we cannot support more than one guest per client in the tattoo area.   This will crowd the room and make it very difficult for our artists to work.


Children and pets are not  allowed inside the shop.  


Please do not touch fresh tattoos inside the shop as this can spread bacteria in common areas.  

Make sure you are in as natural a state as possible, this means you should not be under the

influence of drugs or alcohol, and you should not be ill.  Our artists reserve the right to refuse

service if you appear to be inebriated.  If you feel that you might be getting sick, it is best to

call us and reschedule your appointment.


Try to eat something a few hours before your appointment.  This will lessen the likelihood

of feeling faint, nauseated, or dizzy.


Please be sure to attend to your hygiene before your appointment, this means shower and

wear clean clothes to your appointment.  A clean tattoo is a happy tattoo!


Try to arrive at least ten minutes early to fill out paperwork before getting your new tattoo.


A valid ID is required to get tattooed.  If you are under the age of 18 we WILL NOT tattoo you.  

NO MINORS–-NO EXCEPTIONS!


If you are getting an area tattooed that will be covered, try to wear loose fitting clothing that

will not rub or irritate your new tattoo.


Payment & Deposits

If you are not sure what you would like to get tattooed, schedule a consultation with your artist.  At this time, the artist will take a non-refundable deposit from you.

All deposits will be deducted from your final session.

The amount of your deposit is set at the discretion of your artist and is determined by the total cost of your tattoo.

The total cost of your tattoo is set at the discretion of your artist and is determined by the size, detail, and location of your piece.  

While small changes can be made to your design at the time of your appointment, large changes or new designs may require that your appointment be rescheduled.

As this industry is based on customer service, tipping is always appreciated.
