  • Do you do cover-ups and/or reworks?
    Of course! Within reason, some tattoos can't be covered up unless you want a blackout tattoo. We offer free consultations so we can assess it then or shoot us an email with the picture of your current tattoo and some references on what you want the cover-up to be. We can let you know what is possible!
  • What are the aftercare instructions?
    Take off your saniderm once you see the edges start to lift (5 days max) take off in the shower under warm water. Wash with warm water and unscented soap. Dry with a paper towel, never use a cloth towel, especially a used one. Let it breathe for 24 hours then apply a thin layer of unscented lotion, tattoo balm, or A&D just enough to cover so it doesn't clog your tattoo, you never want your tattoo to be soaking wet. Apply the lotion morning and night with CLEAN hands. Always wash your hands with soap and water and dry them with a paper towel before touching your tattoo. No swimming or soaking in water (ocean, pools, baths, etc) no direct sunlight, and no tight clothes over the tattoo. If you do all of these your tattoos should heal nicely! All touch-ups are free as well!
  • How do I prepare for my consultation?
    Bring your ideas and a minimum of 2 references with you. As well as a $50-200 deposit based on your tattoo idea to hold your appointment date, it will go towards your tattoo and you can get a full refund up to two weeks before your appointment. After that it is non-refundable.
  • What is your hourly rate/shop minimum?
    Our hourly rate is $150 and our shop minimum is $100. We also offer a “Get what you get” game at $80 for spinning/getting the tattoo.
  • How do I prepare for my appointment?
    Make sure to have eaten before and drink plenty of water. Take a shower so you're squeaky clean. Have the area for the tattoo be easily accessible, if you're getting a hip tattoo, bring a bikini bottom (the string kind), and for sternum or chest tattoos pasties will be provided as well as folding wall dividers for your comfort. Wear clothes you don't mind getting potential stains on. Bring snacks and anything that will make you comfortable!
  • My tattoo looks and/or feels strange?
    That's normal, tattoos will be red, scab, and peel during the healing process, and sometimes your skin will feel tight or dry. Just make sure to follow the aftercare instructions or send us an email with pictures if you're concerned and we’ll advise you! Be sure to wait the full 2 weeks of healing time to see how it looks!
  • Should I tip my artist?
    If you're happy with your tattoo and experience at our shop we would appreciate it! The common amount for anyone in the professional service industry is typically 20-30% depending on your experience.
