How much is it going to cost?

When it comes to tattoos, you get what you pay for. Yes, there are plenty of people tattooing out there that will ink you cheap, and you’ll be crying to a real artist to have it covered up. Look for quality, and be willing to pay for it. NEVER haggle over the price of a tattoo. It is disrespectful to the artist. If you can’t pay for quality, don’t bother. This is not a bargain bin. It is a piece of art you will wear for life.

Should I tip my tattoo artist?

Tipping is a really nice gesture! Just as you would tip any other service worker all of us appreciate getting tipped for the hard we put into the tattoo or piercing we do.

What should I get? And where?

This is all a matter of personal taste. You can get whatever you want, and whatever your artist is willing to do. You can choose a picture off the wall, or you can have them create a custom piece just for you. Your only limit is your own imagination. As far as where you should get it goes, just keep in mind what you do for work and the type of social circles you are in. You might want to consider placing your tattoo where it can be easily covered up with normal clothing.

What is the best time of year to get a tattoo?

Although you can get a tattoo any time of the year, your skin gets a lot more abuse during the summer with swimming, tanning and just being exposed to the elements more. Winter time is really the best season to get a tattoo. For more details, see ‘Tis the Season to be Tattooed.

Is it OK to get a tattoo if I’m sick?

Getting a tattoo when your immune system isn’t at 100% isn’t a good idea. You’re going to need your strength and your white blood cells to heal your tattoo, something your body won’t be able to do if it’s already doing battle against virus and bacteria. Not to mention the fact that it’s very inconsiderate to bring your illness into the tattoo studio and risk passing the germs onto others, particularly your artist. If you have an appointment, call and reschedule for when you’re feeling well again.

Is it OK to lay out in the sun or go to the tanning bed when you have tattoos?

It might be really tempting to get some rays during the summer months. We recommend that you always wear sunscreen to prevent fading of tattoos. We recommend you stay out of the sun for at least one to two months after getting a tattoo. We even recommend that you stay out of the sun before getting your tattoo. Even if you don’t get a burn, extremely sun tanned skin can be hard to tattoo because it is still damaged.

Do you offer walk-in tattoos and/or piercings?

Yes we do! When time permits we are more then happy to accommodate a walk-in. Our artists/piercers are usually very busy so we do always recommend to make an appointment.

For piercings please call he shop to make an appointment.

For tattoos we recommend you fill out the consultation request form or email the studio directly. Please note that we will only book in tattoos that have a deposit otherwise you can always try to walk-in. Deposits are taken off the final price of the tattoo.
