Do I need to make an appointment?
What is the difference between an appointment and a walk-in?
For a tattoo appointment we require a deposit to hold the time and show us you are serious about getting the tattoo. For a piercing appointment we require you to call the studio to book in. A walk-in means you are taking a chance that we have an opening in the artist's schedule to do your tattoo or piercing. We recommend that you call the studio to see what times we might have available on the day that you are wanting to come in.
What is a deposit for?
A deposit is to show us that you are serious about getting a tattoo. The deposit will come off the final price of the tattoo or the last appointment. All deposits are strictly NON-REFUNDABLE!!! Please see our appointment contract for more information on deposits.
What if i need to cancel my appointment?
Please call us as soon as you know you can not make it to your appointment. We really appreciate when a clients lets us know as soon as they are not able to come in for their appointment. For tattoos we require 72 hours notice to cancel and keep your deposit. If you cancel in less than 72 hours of your scheduled appointment you forfeit your deposit.
How old must I be to get a tattoo?
You must be 18 years old to get a tattoo. We will not tattoo minors/children, even with parent consent. We require 2 pieces of valid (not expired) government photo ID to get a tattoo. We do not except student cards of any kind.

We are a service based industry (just like hairdressers or a server) and tipping is very much appreciated. There is no specific amount or percentage but it is just whatever you feel like giving.
