Do I need to make an appointment?
Does your studio take walkins?
We are by appointment only but sometimes we can take walk-ins. We recommend always calling before coming as we are a very busy studio.
What if i need to cancel my appointment?
Please call us as soon as you know you can not make it to your appointment. For tattoos, if you cancel with less than 72 hours before your scheduled appointment, you will lose your deposit and will require another deposit to re-book the appointment. There is no penalty for cancelling a piercing appointment, but no-call-no-shows and repeated cancellations are on file so we may refuse booking or request a deposit in the future.
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 government issued photo ID to get a tattoo. We do not accept student ID cards of any kind, nor do we accept photos of ID or parents calling in to provide consent.
How old must I be to get a piercing?
To sign for yourself you must be 16 years old, but there are still piercings that are 18+ only. Please see our piercing prices and ages page for more information on what piercings we do at specific ages. We require 2 pieces of valid (not expired) government photo ID to get a piercing. We do not accept student ID cards of any kind, nor do we accept photos of ID or parents calling in to provide consent.
Should i tip my artist/piercer?
Of course you never have to tip, we will not be offended! But it is accepted and appreciated! If you tip your hairdresser, server, or barista, you can tip your artists too! We work many hours outside of the studio and do not receive all of what you are charged for each service, so tips are always appreciated.
