Each artist has his/her own rates. Tattoos cannot be priced over the phone. If you would like to price a tattoo, you must consult with the artist in person.
If you plan on getting a large tattoo piece, please be sure to plan in advance financially. It is very disheartening for a tattoo artist and the customer to begin a large tattoo piece and not be able to finish it due to poor financial planning. It is best to have a large down payment to put down or to have a plan in place for paying in sessions without having to completely stop in the middle of the process.
All scheduled tattoos require a minimum $60 deposit. For larger tattoos or tattoos requiring more time, the deposit amount may be greater (to be determined by the tattoo artist). Walk-ins or same day tattoos do not require a deposit.
Book an Appointment
Customers who call wanting to schedule an appointment for a simple tattoo (small and does not require a lot of drawing) must pay a $60 deposit.
This can be paid online, by credit card over the phone, or in person. A consultation is suggested for larger tattoos or tattoos requiring a lot of drawing time. In this case, the artist would determine the deposit amount. If the customer does not want to pay a deposit, he/she can “walk-in” the day he/she chooses, but there would be no guarantee of time because we are unable to book appointments without a deposit.
Cancellations and Reschedules
Deposits are non-refundable. Deposits are applied towards the cost of the tattoo. If a customer cancels, does not show or does not give at least 24-hour notice to reschedule, his/her deposit will be forfeited.
Customers must give at least 24-hour notice to reschedule without forfeiting their deposit. Customers can only reschedule twice. After the second reschedule, it is considered a cancellation and the deposit will be forfeited. The customer would have to provide another deposit in order to book another appointment.
