Frequently asked questions
ARRIVE ON TIME
To avoid possibly having your appointment rescheduled or loss of deposit, please arrive to the shop on time. Communication with your artist is key.
DO NOT COME INTOXICATED
It is recommended that you do not drink any alcohol for 24 hours prior to your tattoo or piercing appointment. Alcohol has negative effects on your blood & will hinder the tattooing process. Please don’t be that person.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I BRING?
Phone, headphones, phone charger, gum, a blanket or towel are all useful items if your tattoo will be more than an hour.
WHAT NOT TO BRING?
Kids are great, but not at a tattoo shop. Please make the appropriate arrangements prior to your appointment. We have a limited amount of space in each station. We’d greatly appreciate if you did your best to cap it at +1 for the day of your appointment.
A fresh tattoo or piercing is an open wound. To reduce the risk of infection it’s best to come in on the day of your appointment with the highest level of cleanliness possible. We would rather not smell BO for 4 hours while trying to concentrate on your tattoo, no offense.
WEAR APPROPRIATE CLOTHING
Help us help you and lets not make things awkward. In order to access the area in which your tattoo will be, make sure to wear the appropriate clothing. Lose fitting, bathing suits, button up shirts that can be worn backwards, are all examples of things that will make the process easier for everyone. It’s also recommended that you wear black colored clothing, or something that you won’t care if it gets stained with ink. If in doubt, call the shop and ask.
EAT & STAY HYDRATED
Be sure to eat a full meal prior to your appointment. This helps avoid the risk of fainting or feeling lightheaded. You can bring a soda, juice, or candy if you think this may be an issue. No other foods are allowed in the tattoo area.
BRING PROPER IDENTIFICATION
A valid state ID, valid state drivers license, or passport are the only exceptions. We will not tattoo anyone without it, nor will we tattoo anyone under the age of 18. We do not except parental consent. It’s the law.
CASH OR CREDIT
Cash is always king, but we do except credit cards. We do not have an ATM at the shop. Be prepared with your form of payment prior to arrival.
Getting a tattoo or piercing is a memorable experience & it is always an honor for us to be a part of that with you! We strive for our clients to always be “return clients”.
