What You Need to Know

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO TATTOOS HURT?

Yes, but pain is really relative. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR GETTING A TATTOO?

The process for getting a new tattoo starts by getting in contact with us, either by Facebook, E-mail, Phone, or by coming and visiting us in store.

From there, we would arrange a time for a free consultation where we would discuss everything from design, size, placement, alterations, price, what to expect, how to prepare for a new tattoo, and so on. 

Following that, we would schedule a time(s) for the tattoo, and take a down payment (deposit) towards the tattoo. Please note: We do not make appointments for the tattoos themselves without a down payment towards the cost fo the tattoo.

I WANT A TATTOO BUT I’M ON A LIMITED BUDGET. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE PRICING?

Our pricing is determined on a few different factors, including but not limited to; size, detail, placement (location on body), colour or black 'n' grey.

For smaller pieces that are usually completed in one sitting, we base them off a quoted price, for larger pieces, we price by an hourly rate.

If you are working to a budget, we are more than happy to design a tattoo to suit your budget.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GET A TATTOO?

Although you can get a tattoo any time of the year, your skin gets a lot more abuse during the summer with swimming, tanning and just being exposed to the elements more. Winter time is really the best season to get a tattoo.

IS IT OK TO GET A TATTOO IF I'M SICK?

Getting a tattoo when your immune system isn't at 100% isn't a good idea. You're going to need your strength and your white blood cells to heal your tattoo, something your body won't be able to do if it's already doing battle against virus and bacteria. Not to mention the fact that it's very inconsiderate to bring your illness into the tattoo studio and risk passing the germs onto others, particularly your artist.
If you have an appointment, call and reschedule for when you're feeling well again.
