Deposits vary depending on size. First have a consultation and your artist and they will tell you how much the deposit will be.
DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE
Deposits will be applied to the FINAL cost of the tattoo. If more than one session is required, it will be held until the final session.
Yes we do charge drawing fees for custom designs. The fees depend on the size and complexity of the piece. You must consult with your artist for drawing prices. This fee covers the time it takes to design your piece. It is NON REFUNDABLE and must be paid upfront. This is different than the deposit.
If the design is what we you requested and you change your mind or large scale changes are requested, then you are charged a redesign fee. If the entire design must be redone then the full amount of the drawing fee must be paid again as it is a new design. If a few smaller changes are requested, then fees are lower than a full redesign. Minor changes are free
The shop minimum is $100 which includes the tax for most of teh artists. This is for something small. It can vary depending on your artist.
Finger tattoos are considered a minimum charge. We do not offer free touch ups on fingers, sides of hands, or feet due to their fading nature.
The hourly rate depends on the artist you choose to work with. Tattoo services are typically cash only unless your artist states otherwise
PERFUMES, COLOGNES, ESSENTIAL OILS, HEAVY TOBACCO, OR OTHER STRONG SCENTS AND ODORS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE SHOP due to extreme allergy considerations for both our artists and clients.
We work closely to you. Please consider body odors, and all items listed above. If you are heavily scented (this includes heavily scented deoderants) you may not be tattooed and could lose your deposit.
If your artist can not breathe, they can not work
