Each tattoo is priced based on the amount of time the artist spends tattooing. Our hourly rate is $150.
For small tattoos, or tattoos that take less than an hour, the artist will take size, color, and detail into account when pricing the tattoo. Our shop minimum is $80.
This is a complicated question, and it’s difficult to give an estimate before the tattoo design is finished and sized on the body.
For a specific estimate prior to your tattoo appointment, ask your artist at the end of your consultation, once both you and the artist have a clear idea of the final design and scale of the piece.
Factors on how long a tattoo takes include the size, the level of detail, the thickness of the line, any color and/or shading, and the placement on the body.
For larger pieces, your artist will schedule an Art Check approximately 2-7 days prior to your tattoo appointment. This is essentially the artist’s “due date”, and is your opportunity to make any changes and ask any questions you may have.
For smaller pieces, your appointment will be booked with plenty of time for you and the artist to go over the design they have prepared, and for you to make any changes or ask any questions prior to sitting down in the chair.
Due to COVID-19, your art check may be booked as an email exchange to help minimize the number of people we have in the building at a time. We ask that clients respect the hard work of our artists and do not take those designs elsewhere or post online without express permission from the artist in question. Thank you!
Get a good night’s sleep, eat a healthy meal before you arrive, and stay hydrated!
Clients are welcome to bring snacks/drinks with them to their appointments, though we do ask that all eating/drinking is done during breaks to maintain the safety of everyone in the building.
Avoid alcohol, weed, drugs, and excess caffeine on the day of your appointment.
We do not recommend getting tattooed hungover, as the experience will be more painful than necessary and the piece may not heal as well afterwards!
All deposits are nonrefundable.
We require a 72-hour notice if an appointment needs to be cancelled or rescheduled. If last-minute, another deposit will be needed in order to reschedule the appointment.
A deposit is required in order to book an appointment.
If your cancellation/reschedule is due to an emergency, please contact our shop manager, Caroline, and she will work with you and the shop owner to come up with the best plan forward.
COVID CHANGES TO DEPOSIT POLICY
If you are experiencing any cold- or flu-like symptoms, or if your temperature has risen over 100°, please call or email to reschedule your appointment as soon as possible. We will honor your deposit and keep it on file for when you feel healthy + safe to reschedule.
Tattooing is a part of the service industry. Just as you would at a restaurant or barbershop, tattoo artists deserve to be paid for their expertise!
Tips range anywhere from 20-30%, though every little bit helps. Thank you!
