Deposits for tattoos start at $80 and must be paid at the time of booking your appointment. The deposit acts as a hold for the artist and their time. The deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE and is put towards the final cost of your tattoo.
Your deposit and appointment are booked for the idea discussed with the artist or staff at the time of booking. Your reference material and/or fonts must be provided at the time of booking. Failing to provide reference material on time or making last minute changes to your tattoo design may result in the loss of your appointment and your deposit.
Please let the artist or staff know if you have any financial concerns/restrictions, or prior engagements at the time of booking that might interfere with your appointment.
You must give at least 72 hours (3 days) notice to reschedule your appointment. Failing to do so will result in the loss of your deposit. Canceling your appointment entirely will also result in the loss of your deposit.
BEFORE YOUR TATTOO
Avoid partying (heavy drinking of alcohol or drug use) at least 48 hours prior to your tattoo appointment, as well as sun tanning and tanning beds. Get a good night sleep prior to your appointment. The healthier you are before hand the easier it will be for you and the artist to complete your tattoo session.
It is very important that you eat before your appointment. Heavier meals such as pasta, potatoes, etc, and fruit juices will help make your session easier to handle. Never get tattooed on an empty stomach.
Occasionally, due to circumstances the artist may fall behind schedule. This can be caused by a number of uncontrollable issues. If you are on a tight schedule, feel free to call the shop before your appointment to see how the day is going.
DURING YOUR TATTOO
Remember to wear/bring appropriate clothing to your tattoo appointment (shorts, sweatpants, tank top, etc) so that the area being tattooed is easily accessible to the artist.
Cell phones/devices of any kind must be shut off or put on silent before entering the tattoo room as they are a distraction to the artist. No videos / filming during your tattoo. If you’d like to listen to music/watch videos on your phone/device during your appointment please remember to bring headphones as to not distract the artist.
Due to COVID 19 restrictions you are not allowed to bring any additional people with you into the tattoo room. Under no circumstance are children allowed to sit and wait while their parents receive any kind of service.
Do not bring your kids or friends to your tattoo appointment.
AFTER YOUR TATTOO
Healing time for most tattoos is 2-3 weeks. During this time you’ll need to avoid tanning beds, sun tanning and saunas as well as lakes, oceans, pools, hot tubs, baths (quick showers are ok) and any other body of water where bacteria may be present. Do your best not to over expose the area of your body that has been tattooed.
Although guidelines to heal a tattoo vary from shop to shop, it is highly recommended that you follow our aftercare process. Failure to do so may result in a tattoo that does not show your idea or the artist’s work properly. Our healing guidelines are set for a reason.
After the 2-3 week healing process if you feel like your tattoo may need a touch up, please consult with your artist first. There may be a small monetary charge for any and all touch ups due to the use of materials and setup costs
Communication is important! If you have any questions before, during or after your tattoo, feel free to contact us.
FONTS & LETTERING
If you are incorporating text or lettering into your tattoo you’ll need to decide on a font. Fonts (or typefaces) refer to the style of lettering used. Common fonts are Times New Roman, Helvetica, Courier, etc.
When selecting a font keep in mind more intricate/detailed fonts sometimes need to be bigger than you might anticipate to account of spacing. Keep an eye out for spacing inside the in the letters (A, a, B, b, d, e, etc. It’s very common for intricate letters tattooed too small or spaced too closely to bleed into each other, leaving your tattoo looking less than amazing.
There are thousands and thousands of fonts out there so to help you decide we recommend using Dafont.com. Search through the site and find your favorite as well as a backup or two.
