Frequently Asked Questions

How can I schedule an appointment?
Since the studio's primary focus is to capture a "closed-to-the-general-public," semi-private-studio-feel, an appointment is required to enter the studio as well as receive a tattoo unless there is an event being held or otherwise noted on the studio's pages, This allows our clients to receive 100% uninterrupted focus from our artists as well as maintaining a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. To schedule an appointment, please visit our "Appointments" page and select the respective artist for the job.

Each artist opens their schedule once per month to book for the upcoming month ahead. Be sure to check social media frequently, as these schedule openings and cancellations will be broadcast first there.

How much do tattoos cost?
The price of a tattoo varies per artist. Each artist has a respective hourly and day rate that is disclosed upon the scheduling of your appointment. If you have a particular budget you would like to maintain for the session, please let our artists know when scheduling so they can accommodate the budget.

What is your policy on minors?
You MUST be at least 18 years of age to enter the premises or receive a tattoo with a valid state-issued identification. No exceptions. If you have children, we request you consider arrangements for your appointment.

How do I care for my new tattoo?
Each artist will have their specific instructions they will disclose in written-form on the day of your appointment. Tanning, swimming, submerging of water for extended periods of time as well as subjecting your fresh tattoo to other harsh conditions is strongly discouraged and will affect your touch-up policy with your artist. This also greatly affects the healing of your fresh tattoo. General shop aftercare can be found in the Aftercare section.

How do I prepare for the day of my appointment?
Congratulations - We are excited to share this experience with you! In the 24-48 hours leading up to your appointment we recommend you eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. This is especially true for the day of your appointment in which we recommend you eat a good meal a maximum of an hour before your appointment. This ensures your body and skin endures the tattoo session the best it possibly can as well as prevents you from feeling light-headed or dizzy during the appointment. We strongly recommend against drinking in the 48 hours leading up to the appointment and absolutely ZERO drinking/drugs the day of your appointment. No exceptions!

We cannot stress hygiene enough to our clients. Bathing/deodorizing is absolutely necessary prior to your appointment. Also please trim (complete shaving unnecessary) the area of your tattoo prior to your appointment.

Things you could consider bringing to your appointment would be: headphones, a book/magazine, a cell phone charger, a tablet, and most definitely a small snack/beverage.

Our studio prides itself on maintaining a peaceful, private-studio feel so that our artists can concentrate solely on you without the distractions of the general public entering the premises and/or calling the studio. Because of this, we recommend you bring no more than one person with you if you must.
