Come on in!
You are always welcome to come in to the shop, feel the vibe, check out the portfolios and talk with our Artists about your vision. You can also browse each Artists portfolios on their Artist page, read about their experiences, and find out the best way to contact them.
Each Artist is responsible for scheduling and keeping their own appointments (if you have any concerns, please let management know). If you need help matching your vision with the perfect Artist, we can help with that too.
We are an open-floor shop and enjoy the community and conversations that it brings. Everyone is welcome here. When you are in our shop, please do be aware of the space and people around you. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, hate speech, or other discriminatory attitudes.
We accept cash, cards and we do sell and accept Giftcards
Our shop minimum is $60, so no matter how small your tattoo is or how quickly it is completed, that is what you will pay. If what you want is larger than the size of a quarter, expect to pay more. We charge by the hour and each Artist has their own hourly rate that ranges from $100-150. To get an accurate price quote, come in and talk with your Artist in person (see "Free Consultation" below). Trying to give a quote over the phone, in a text, or email will NOT give an accurate price, we need to see the design and where you want it on your body.
Our Artists are that, Artists and they want to give you a lifelong piece of Art. If your Artist has suggestions on size, placement or composition, please consider what they are saying. We only have experienced Artists in our shop who we trust to have your best interests in mind. If you are on a budget simply let your Artist know and they can work with you to figure out what works best.

It's a must and free!
If you are getting a larger tattoo, custom piece, or a cover up come in for a free consult. You are welcome to walk in and see if it's a good time to go over the details of your tattoo idea with your Artist, however if you don't want to wait we recommend you set up an appointment. If you are coming in from out of town and have limited time, let us know!
A free consult gives the Artist the opportunity to trace your body part where the tattoo will be, to confirm the artwork that they will be spending their time drawing for you, and to give you a price quote. This is still only a quote, depending on later changes and how well you sit during the tattoo, the price can change.
Please bring any reference pictures to give your Artist and be prepared to pay your deposit. For tattoos on an intimate area, we may be able to schedule you a before or after-hours appointment for less exposure, please inquire with your Artist during your consultation.
Pay them & show up, all good
To schedule an appointment we require a minimal deposit of $40 for small pieces and $100 for large pieces. Deposits go toward the price of your tattoo and they are non-refundable. Your deposit is good for as long as it takes to finish the tattoo, your deposit will be forfeited if:
- More than 6 months pass without an appointment made or communication from you
- Rescheduling an appointment more than twice
- Missing a scheduled appointment without 24 hour notice
- Excessive drawing changes (at the Artists discretion)
Our Artists work hard for you and apply hours towards a custom piece. Deposits protect our Artists time, labor and schedule investment.
Day of Tattoo
We check ID (a valid state or government issued picture ID or a valid passport with a picture), you must be 18. No exceptions. Our Artists will not tattoo you if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. You can not be Pregnant. Please confirm you are not regularly taking blood thinners (they have many different names). And talk to your Artist about any health issues or concerns.
Everything is better when you are well rested, have eaten, are hydrated and have had only minimal caffeine. Please make sure you shower and wear clean clothes (infection prevention starts there). At the shop, your Artist will shave the area for you.
Your price quote is given based on the assumption you sit still during the tattoo. Your Artist can work faster and more efficiently if you hold still. If a session is longer than expected your price may be higher. Be sure you understand how much you are being quoted for your tattoo and be prepared to pay more, should it become necessary (we do take credit cards). Please DO NOT try to barter.
Depending on the placement of your tattoo, you may be required to remove certain items of clothing. To make things more comfortable for you, bring other clothing items such as a bathing suit top or shorts. We are an open studio, though we do have dividers if more privacy is your preference.
We use all vegan inks that we feel are the best (safest and brightest) tattoo pigments in the industry and disposable needles (so cleanliness is never an issue)
a good practice
Your Artist strives to make your experience exceptional. If you are happy with your tattoo and the service your Artist provided, a Tip is greatly appreciated. The Artists only receive a percentage of the cost of your tattoo but all of the tip! Tips typically range from 10-30%.
Thank you for supporting our small local business!
