WHY DO I HAVE TO MAKE A DEPOSIT?
A deposit holds your spot and makes sure the artist is compensated for their time you’re a no-show. The deposit goes toward the total cost of the artwork. If you require more than one appointment to complete the tattoo, the deposit is deducted from the last appointment.
WHAT FORM OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We currently accept cash, Venmo or PayPal. We do not accept checks.
A non-refundable deposit is required when scheduling your appointment. Venmo or PayPal will only be accepted when paying the deposit. The deposit goes toward the total cost of the tattoo.
The remaining balance must be paid by cash only; please be prepared to pay the final balance with cash.
CAN I SEE THE TATTOO DESIGN BEFORE THE APPOINTMENT?
As a shop policy, we do not share tattoo designs prior to the appointment. When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, a design will be prepared for you. Minor edits can be made, if needed.
WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Prior to your appointment, make sure you get plenty of rest. Please eat a prior to the appointment, drink water and stay hydrated. If your appointment is 4 hours or longer, bring a drink and snack with you.
If you can, and are allowed to take a dose of Ibuprofen as prescribed by the manufacturer. Ibuprofen is an NSAID that will help with inflammation, as well as during the tattoo process overall.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
We recommend bringing a drink to stay hydrated throughout the appointment, and a small snack to keep you fueled.
Feel free to bring headphones if listening to something helps to distract you.
Please bring a current photo ID to present at check-in.
Please dress accordingly, to the area we are working on.
CAN SOMEONE COME WITH ME?
Tattooing requires concentration from the artist. We only permit one guest with the client.
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET TATTOOED?
New York State Law requires that you must be at least 18 years of age to get a tattoo. Parents are not allowed to give consent for minors.
We require a valid form of ID to be presented and copied at the time of the appointment.
WHY DO TATTOOS COST SO MUCH?
In order to provide you with a quality, sterile tattoo, we use disposable needs and medical-grade supplies as a safety precaution. We use quality inks to ensure the tattoo’s vibrance and longevity. In addition, we stay up to date on all blood-born pathogens, first aid and CPR certifications.
You may find some tattoo shops or artists that charge less, but you may be sacrificing cleanliness and quality.
