Do I need an appointment?
Appointments are highly suggested, but we are more than happy to take walk-ins if time allows.
How much are tattoos?
Due to the variety of variables in a tattoo, and body types we cannot give a price quote until there has been an in person consultation. We know that can be a little inconvenient, but we want to be sure that the information you are given is accurate and reasonable, and the good news we don’t charge for consultations.
What identification do I need to bring with me?
By state law you will need a valid state or federally issued photo identification to receive your tattoo.
Do you tattoo anyone under the age of 18 years old?
Sorry, we do not.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash or card.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my tattoo?
We suggest anyone getting a tattoo get full rest the day before, especially if you are coming in for a larger tattoo. In addition, being well hydrated, eating a nutritious meal, and keeping your stress levels low will make for a more enjoyable tattoo experience.
Is there anything specific I should wear to get my tattoo?
It’s always good to keep in mind the area that you will be having tattooed and your comfort level when selecting your clothing. Example, if you are have your abdomen tattooed and you wear a dress you will have to pull your dress up to allow the artist access to the area.
Can I bring friends and/or family along?
Yes, but we ask to keep it to a minimum. We love when clients have moral support with them, but in our experience when there are too many companions the experience can become more stressful. It is also assumed that any support you bring is well behaved and at least 18 years old.
How do I care for my new tattoo?
It is important to remember that your new tattoo is considered an open wound for 2 to 3 weeks. This means we would suggest keeping it clean with a normal hygiene regimen.
You will also want to make sure that all clothing, sheets, or other objects that may come in contact with your new tattoo are clean. It is generally best to look for loose fitting clothing that will minimize contact with the area.
We ask that you avoid submerging the tattoo in any body of water. This point is particularly important to take into account if you have trips, vacations, or events planned during your healing period.
We also ask that you avoid prolonged exposure to UV rays while you are in your healing phase.
Your tattoo will begin to get dry and peel, or possibly scab over within a few days. Please don’t worry, this is part of the natural healing process.
We suggest using a non-scented lotion with no excessive additives. Keeping in mind any sensitivities and allergies you may already be aware of.
Under no circumstance should you pick, scratch, or remove any dry areas or scabs. Allow them to simply fall off when they are ready.
Last but not least, unless you are applying lotion or washing the tattooed area, DO NOT TOUCH IT. Hands are great, but they do tend to collect lots of germs that we do not want to add to a freshly tattooed area. So before applying lotion make sure to wash your hands thoroughly.
