Can I get a price quote over the phone?

No. We cannot accurately quote you a price on a tattoo over the phone. There are many factors that go into determining the price of a tattoo, such as size, detail, and placement on the body. The best thing to do is to come to the shop so we can give you the most accurate quote possible. For smaller tattoos, the artist can usually quote you a ballpark price. Larger tattoos, especially those that will require more than one session, are quoted by the hour. Our shop rate is $180- $200 hour, depending on the artist. There is a minimum of $100 per tattoo.

Do you take walk-ins or do I need to make an appointment?

Yes! We absolutely take walk-ins. You can give us a call or come on down to see if any artists are available. If the tattoo is small enough, and can be put together quickly, we will do our best to take care of you as soon as possible. Walk-ins are first come, first serve. If you would like to get tattooed on a certain day at a certain time or the tattoo is larger, we highly recommend you make an appointment. If its a larger tattoo, this would allow enough time to properly create a custom design for you!

How do I book an appointment?

To book an appointment, you will need to come into the shop. We require a $100 minimum cash deposit for all appointments at the time of scheduling. This amount will be credited to the end price of your tattoo. To avoid losing your deposit, please notify us of any changes to your appointment at least 24 hours in advance. All deposits are non-refundable.

Why do you require a deposit for all appointments?

We value our artists’ time and have implemented this policy to encourage our clients to do the same. The process of producing a custom art piece for someone could take a few minutes or require hours of design time. The deposit is collateral in case a client decides to no show or cancels an appointment.

What can I expect the day of my appointment?

Our artists are very busy and are usually booked out on the days that they work. Commonly, they will draw up your artwork the day of your appointment. This helps ensure that you get exactly what you want and have as much input in the design of the tattoo as you would like. Depending on the size of the piece, expect to be waiting a little while. You may want to bring a book or game to keep you busy. Remember, this is not tv- you are not going to walk out of our shop with a full back piece in an hour, like you saw on Miami Ink.

Do you tattoo anyone under the age of 18?

No. Even with parental consent, we never tattoo anyone under the age of 18.

Do you do piercings, cosmetic tattooing or temporary tattoos?

No. We are strictly a tattoo shop.

How do I care for my new tattoo?
  • After 2 hours, wash your hands and carefully remove bandage
  • Gently wash tattoo with warm water and unscented, dye-free soap
  • Rinse with cold water
  • Pat completely dry with a paper towel and let air dry for an additional 5 minutes
  • Apply a thin layer of ointment and gently rub in until completely absorbed

Follow the above steps 3-5 times daily until tattoo is completely healed: approximately 7-14 days.

During the first few days, your tattoo will weep plasma. It is important to properly clean your tattoo during this time to avoid forming a scab. After approximately 3-5 days, your tattoo will begin to peel and flake. Do not scratch or pick at it. It is important to keep your tattoo clean and dry as it heals.

  • Do not re-bandage tattoo
  • Do not use anything abrasive to clean tattoo
  • Wash hands prior to touching tattoo
  • No soaking, swimming, or sunbathing until healed
  • Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds
  • Do not use tanning oils or lotions
  • Avoid tight fitting clothing
  • Always use SPF45+ when exposing tattoo to the sun after it has healed

What are your sterilization procedures?

All of our artists are trained in the proper handling and sterilization of equipment and are certified in Bloodborne Pathogens training.

Following the tattooing process, the contaminated instruments are placed into a stainless steel tray with a lid, carried into the sterilization room, and placed into a deep stainless steel tray filled with CaviCide. CaviCide is a surface disinfectant and decontaminant cleaner that is bactericidal, fungicidal, and tuberculocidal. At the end of the workday, the instruments are put into an ultrasonic cleaner for 5-10 minutes using 30ml (1 fl. Oz.) of CaviCide per liter (.26 gallon) of water. They are then rinsed thoroughly and put into individual self sealing sterilization pouches and placed into a Midmark Ritter M9 autoclave for 5 minutes at 270° F (132° C) 27.1 Psi (186 Kpa), then dried for 30 minutes in accordance to the manufacturer’s instructions. They are then ready for use and taken out of the autoclave machine and placed in the designated drawer in the workstation. All needles are one time use only and are immediately disposed of into a Sharps container after every procedure. The Sharps containers are picked up periodically by a biological monitoring service.

Single use nitrile medical examination gloves must be worn at all times when prepping, tattooing, and cleaning up after a service has been performed. To help prevent against cross- contamination, all work surfaces are sprayed with CaviCide and wiped down after every tattoo. Special precautions are taken in all aspects to prevent any cross-contamination.

Instructions provided by the manufacturer of the autoclave will be posted in the sterilization room on how to properly clean and care for the autoclave to make sure it is in optimal running condition. Spore tests are done monthly to ensure the machine is working properly.
